Minnesota, the Sweden of America. You Wanted It… You Got It!

The cop with only two years experience who shot pyjama-wearing Australian woman, 40, dead through the DOOR of his squad car while his bodycam was off after she called 911 over ‘home intruder’


The police officer who shot and killed an unarmed Australian woman in mysterious circumstances after she called 911 to report a disturbance behind her upscale Minneapolis home has been identified.


Mohamed Noor, who joined the department in March 2015, reached over and shot Justine Damond, 40, multiple times from the passenger seat of his squad car while she spoke to his colleague on the drivers side in a back alley.

Both officer’s bodycams were off and the squad car camera not recording when Damond – who was in her pyjamas – was killed at around 11.30pm on Saturday, just a month before she was due to marry.

Ms Damond’s heartbroken fiance Don Damond, fight back tears on Tuesday as he spoke of his partner’s shocking death, claiming the police have failed to provide an explanation.

Mr Damond said the family were ‘desperate for information’ about her shooting – which he referred to as a ‘homicide.’

Piecing together Justine’s last moments before the homicide will be a small comfort as we grieve this tragedy,’ Don told media gathered around his Minneapolis home.

‘Our hearts are broken and we are utterly devastated by the loss of Justine,’ he added.

‘It was Justine that called 911 on Saturday evening reporting what she believed was an active sexual assault occurring nearby.


‘Sadly, my family and I have been provided with almost no additional information from law enforcement regarding what happened after police arrived.

‘We have lost the dearest of people and we are desperate for information.’

Damond described Justine as a ‘teacher to so many’ who lived ‘a life of openness, kindness and love’ and had a ‘great wit and humour.’

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) – the state agency investigating the shooting – has so far kept tight-lipped on the circumstances that led to the death of the yoga and meditation teacher.

They have admitted that no weapons were recovered from the scene and according to the Star Tribune witnesses to the shooting have described Damond approaching the police cruiser in the alley behind her house.

She was holding her cell phone and talking to an officer on the drivers side before she was shot.

The only concrete statement the BCA has made so far is to confirm that ‘At one point an officer fired their weapon, fatally striking a woman’.


4 Comments on Minnesota, the Sweden of America. You Wanted It… You Got It!

  1. This is Karma in action:
    Someone who wants the police to use deadly force on someone else may get that deadly force applied on himself instead !


  2. The whole thing is strange, her right after being frightened enough to call police makes her way down a dark alley in pajamas, wasn’t she told or had enough sense to wait for the police to investigate then contact her?
    The incident happened late saturday night but the very next Sunday afternoon a organized feminized multicultural women’s march spreading a message of ‘love’, ‘tolerance’, ‘acceptance’, and ‘understanding’???HUH???
    Not one utterance about ‘patriarchy’, ‘violence on women’, ‘police brutality’, ‘white supremacy’, or even a call for more ‘women police officers’.
    The ONLY message they had that came through LOUD and CLEAR was : SEND MORE SOMAILIAS.
    Well Minnesota, enjoy what you and your white middle class ilk have plagued the rest of white working class America with, and above all BE TOLERANT.


  3. The Women’s March Minnesota

    It began a week and a half after Donald Trump’s election, when 43 women gathered in a library in the suburbs of the Twin Cities. All of them were worried about their own futures and those of the people they loved. Almost none had been politically active in the past; none had ever planned or organized a march on the scale they envisioned. Still, they wanted to send the new president a message the day after he took power: Hear Our Voice.
