No justice for Justine Damond? Legal loophole means police officer who shot Australian woman dead may never face criminal charges

The U.S. police officer who shot dead Australian woman Justine Damond as she stood on a driveway outside her home may never face criminal charges.

Rookie cop Mohamed Noor is maintaining his silence and continues to exercise his legal right not to be interviewed by investigators probing Ms Damond’s death.

However, when the shooting becomes the subject of an internal police investigation, Noor will be compelled to provide statement or face the sack from the force.

The only catch is, any statement he provides during the internal investigation cannot be used in a criminal case due to a legal technicality, the Star Tribune reports.
