Officer who shot dead Australian bride-to-be outside her Minneapolis home only had seven months training after he was fast-tracked through the police cadet program

The Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot an unarmed Australian woman graduated from the city’s accelerated police cadet program.

Officer Mohamed Noor graduated in 2015 after the seven month training program, which is a quicker, nontraditional route to policing aimed at helping those who already have a college degree enter law enforcement, The Star Tribune reported.

Mr Noor shot dead bride-to-be Justine Damond on July 15 as she stood outside her Minneapolis home in pajamas.

    It used to be hyperbole when we said political correctness and cultural relativity would kill us, well, the day has come. A ill-tempered, badly trained, identity politics, virtue signaling quota hire has killed an innocent woman seeking help.

      3 page reprint in today’s Toronto Star and Crescent of this Washington Post article about this “Wonderful Muslim Dr who is just like us and wants to educate his Christian neighbors about Islam”.

      Article continues to promulgate the myth about Thomas Jefferson hosting an Iftar dinner….

      “He went over the history of Islam in America. He mentioned that Thomas Jefferson hosted what is considered the first iftar dinner, the meal that breaks the fast during the holy month of Ramadan. He talked about refugees. He talked about mercy. He talked and kept talking, and after an hour and a half in which not one person had left the room, Pastor Mandy tapped him on the arm and whispered that he needed to finish.”

      Article mentions that the voters in the area voted for Trump and implies they are ignorant and politically incorrect.

    And just for reference, here is the lesbian Minneapolis chief of Police Janeé Harteau and the Mayor of Minneapolis Betsy Hodges, who isn’t muslim but just thinks the hijab is really cool. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3d5014fb86cb5a26f683903594b7cb62ad7dde88120f0d71ff9d513bb7a01afa.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a3bcef558551ed712ed90f64a9b96ccdac8c770ba835cde52d2d12b11b3afd57.jpg

    How progressive.

    BillyHW, you have a point. As impopular as rescinding the right to vote would be, we should at least think twice before electing women to public office

      The “one sixteenth Chippewa very recently” fired by the mayor for nebulous reasons former police chief. She and the mayor both seem to favour this wild child sort of hairstyle – perhaps it is some sort of virtue signal so members of the cool kids can always spot each other. No doubt her buyout will be generous and not leave her police sergeant partner in marriage and blonde former patrol mate unfairly paying the freight for both of them.

          Of course: looking pretty is aligning yourself to the misogynist patriarchy – real feminists look like boilermakers that use their heads to hammer metal into shape.

      Absolutely! Because everything they do, or plan to do, is ALWAYS ALWAYS based on their f***ng feelings. This is where the “Law of Unintended Consequences” comes in because the stupid ***** didn’t think the entire thing through to its logical end, and tragedy struck.

      And it was entirely predictable.

    And now the scummy lawyers for this POS want an autopsy to look for ambien;

    “Like so many Muslims before him, it looks as if Mohamed Noor has opted to defend himself by blaming the victim.

    According to Drugs.com, “Ambien (zolpidem) is a sedative, also called a hypnotic. Zolpidem affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced in people with sleep problems insomnia). Ambien is used to treat insomnia….Ambien may impair your thinking or reactions….Some people using this medicine have engaged in activity such as driving, eating, walking, making phone calls, or having sex and later having no memory of the activity.”

    That Noor’s lawyers would choose this scurrilous course of action is astounding, but not at all surprising.”

      So is Noor’s excuse that Justine was moving too slowly, or that she couldn’t remember why she had called the police?

      I can’t understand why you would attempt to excuse a shooting on that basis: cocaine, crack, PCP, meth, or bath salts maybe, but Ambien?

        Last I read, he was startled by a firework, thought he heard a gunshot and opened fire at the only person in sight outside the cop car. Maybe the defense are re-thinking.
        Ambien? – perhaps because she was in her pyjamas. The other drugs aren’t really something you’d take before going to bed.

      Police Officer Mohamed Noor is being oppressed by not allowing him to be tried under Allah’s law the Sharia.

  • Observer

    But the police officer had a thorough knowledge of Sharia Law!

  • Dana Garcia

    Diversity is always Job #1 for libs. That Noor’s degree in business should count for anything in his police training is another example.

    • tom_billesley

      He may already have a book deal, though.

      • Dana Garcia

        Right, he may have a better offer from Simon & Schuster than the city of Minneapolis.
