    Justine Damond Shooting - Minneapolis, MN

    Strange case. Damond had called police to report a disturbance. She ended up getting shot by the police while talking to them at the driver's side door. She was wearing her pajamas. The body cams of both cops were not turned on.

    The Police Officer was from Somalia, a country well know for it's Rights for Women. She was already talking to his partner, who was driving. Firing a gun from inside a car looks cool in the movies, but, both officers probably both have ruptured ear drums. Something is a tick off about this incident.

    "Officer Mohamed Noor began blasting at ..... ". I'm surprised he didn't take out his partner at the same time ! Never trust a high-strung nervous type with a gun. Unreal.

    One of the news stories I saw earlier said she was speaking with the driver when she was shot, which would make it even more bizarre.

    I guess 40 year old Australian women wearing pajamas are the new threat

    This whole thing makes no sense. Yes, he endangered his partner's life. If they heard a boom or whatever they did not radio about it. I haven't read that last link but I am pissed about this one. I worked for Don Damond for years, he is a very nice man, who always took the time to say hi to me even when he was the director of Table Games at the casino where I worked, before he moved on to be the head of the entire sister casino. She was talking to the driver's side officer, she was the one who called the cops. People are questioning why she would go out there, well, when I reported an assault in progress (a man was being choked on the street outside my window) I went down and met the cops to tell them what I heard. It's not that unusual. And she was in her PJs likely had no pockets. Why did he have his gun drawn anyway? Did he think they were in danger? ?And if he did, why didn't they have their cameras running? IF they did heard a boom or bang or whatever, what made him think it was her? There were 3 streetlights above them and 9 garages in the alley had sensor lights on them, it was well lit. He would have seen that she didn't have a bomb or a gun or anything else to cause a boom, so why just shoot her?

    Another thing is I was looking for videos on YouTube yesterday about this because of course it's the talk of me and all my friends and I found the shittiest most bullshit conspiracy theory video from a "man of God" full of lies. What a sick individual. Among his claims: The illuminati is behind this, proven by the fact that on ONE station the anchor was wearing a black and white dress, and that the reporter was standing in front of a pointed roof garage (meaning there was triangle symbolism on there). It's a midcentury neighborhood, every garage has a pointed roof, God dammit. Then he said they were all crisis actors, she's not really dead, Don and his son are really gay lovers, etc... COME THE FUCK ON. He went on to talk about anyone who believes in stars is a fool or something like that, claims that every police force has the illuminati's triangle symbol on their badge (lies) and god only knows what other bullshit on there. And the stupid assholes commenting on it, saying "Thank you, you were sent from god to tell us the truth." GIve me damn break. These people need serious mental health.

    I just pray Don gets the answers he needs. There was a possible witness the mayor is calling to come forward but I dont' know if he has yet or not, a male on a bicycle between 18-25. Otherwise it's the officer's word against, nothing, because she's dead and they didn't have their cams going, when approaching a possible assault. Even if they weren't scared of Justine, they should have had the cameras running with a possible crime going on to catch any evidence from that. They were both in the wrong for that, Noor more in the wrong for endangering his partner, bad gun safety, murder.

    I am going to read the link about Noor right now. I know he had 3 complaints against him, I'm interested to see what else has come out.

    ETA a few thoughts after reading that link. Imprisonment, assault? Really? The guy might have some issues. Let's clear some things up. I would classify it as more of a upper middle class if not upper class neighborhood, it's a rich neighborhood, and one of the safest in the city, I'd say "generally safe" is downplaying it. "They" were not attempting rescue, the driver side officer was doing CPR. I don't know what Noor was doing, maybe yelling "Fuck" like the guy who shot Filando Castile after he realized how badly he had fucked up, even though the genius jurors managed to acquit him. So the state's attorney is trying, but he needs a competent jury.

    ETA: I misread the last post, I did not listen to Chief Harteau, I was thinking of the mayor's comments the other day, that's what my post is based on. Sorry. My thoughts as a local. The mayor is an idiot. She is not genuine. Her words are empty to me, she really has no power here, basically a big meh to her press conference. It was either her or Janee who pushed to have this guy put on the force so we'd have a Somali officer since we have such a huge Somali population. He was the first Somali MPD officer, but he was kind of a last kid picked on the playground kind of guy, and he's already had 3 complains in a year or so.

    Now we have people flying in to protest to have officer Noor arrested. Give them time to do their job you stupid fucks with too much time and money on your hands. They told my friend they were here to protest because *this* lady wasn't a thug like all the other people they've shot here, etc... STFU lady and second, wait until you have something to protest about. There is nothing to protest now, unless you want to protest them investigating. Dumb bitch.

    I did just have some fun with the conspiracy nuts on YouTube. One of my replies was "wow, I know crisis actors!, I just thought Don was my boss!" or something, and someone replied "you tattled on yourself with your words 'I know crisis actors' you are probably one yourself. I replied "busted!! take a look at my facebook, you''ll probably remember me as "9/11 Woman on Street", "Sandy Hook Grivieng Mother #5", and in my younger days "Running Columbine Student #363. He asked me how much it paid, I told him well, and a per diem and food allowance because pretending to be in a tragedy makes you hangry! Then I told him they also flew me all over there world because there aren't that many crisis actors, that he might also remember me as "Lady in London Subway bombing" and "Norwegian tourist #245BA582&aDf8" (they sure are weird over there lol!)

    These guys are the biggest pack of idiots you'll ever find. I'm the white devil though. Whatever. he's a false prophet, and all those idiots follow his every crazy word. Asses.

    I listened to Chief Harteau, and my first thought was goddamn. If she's saying this kind of stuff about officer Noor already, they KNOW some shit went down that shouldn't have gone down, and that guy is screwed.

    Why is it now being said that they want to know if she was on sleeping tablets ? what the hell has that got to do with anything ?! she could have been drugged up to the eye balls but it still didn't give them the right to kill an innocent bystander who was trying to assist THEM . WTF , People will be too scared to report any sort of crime if this is how they treat innocents.

    They are looking for a way to blame the victim. Don't think that dog is going to hunt this time.

    I highly doubt she was on sleeping pills. She was a holistic teacher, yoga instructor, very into healthy eating; mind, body, spirit type stuff, so I'd be surprised if she was. Even if she was, that dosn't mean she had a weapon or was attacking the offficers or posed a threat.

    Betsy just announced Janee Harteau is stepping down as chief and a Hispanic Man will fill the role until they have a final replacement.

    Even if she was on sleeping pills, I fail to see how it could make a person violent or MORE of a threat. I would assume one would be more sedate, but that's just my unprofessional assumption.

    The witness has come forward and apparently recorded part of the incident.
