Woman who called 911 to report
disturbance shot dead by cops

New York Post, by Chris Perez

Original Article

An Australian woman who was living in Minnesota and engaged to be married next month was shot dead by police — after she called 911 to report a disturbance behind her house. Justine Damond, 40, of Minneapolis, was killed on Saturday night by an officer who was responding to her call, according to the Star Tribune. He and another cop had arrived at her home around 11:30 p.m. — looking for a possible assault — after she claimed to hear “a sound” in the alley behind the residence, the newspaper reports. Three sources with knowledge of the incident said that

I will wait for more here before I comment on the cops´ actions. It is strange that although cameras were present, they weren´t on.

I can wait for more info too but generally if you feel threatened by a noise outside and call the cops you should stay in the house.

It seems a bit irresponsible to report on a case that begs for critical information. Police show up to investigate a disturbance and gun down the first woman in pajamas who they find. You might want to ask a question or two before reporting there Chris.

And why in the NY Post?

Agree with #1, you don´t call the cops concerning somebody outside and then go outside. Sounds like the officer just panicked but somebody coming out of the dark when you are on heightened alert tends to cause that. This doesn´t look good.

If the cops were sitting in their car their body cams would be pointing at the dashboard anyway with no voice recordings either - no help there.
The car´s dash cam is pointed forward, but voices might be heard. If the woman was at the driver´s side window and was shot by the cop in the passenger seat, through the door, I´d say it´s an accidental discharge. Not enough info at this point, though....just guessing.

She was at the drivers side door and the passenger shot her through that door. If I were the driver I would be extremely mad at my partner because she/he could have shot me. Something seems strange here.

The woman was in her pajamas!!!

I called one time to report that I’d heard something from the house behind me and seen that the sliding door into the side of their living room was open. The house was dark.

I went out when the police arrived. That is not an unusual thing to do. Ill-advised or not.

The officer is Mohammed Noor. College graduate. First Somali officer in this precinct. Which means there are more.

She had walked about 100 yards to where they were at the end of the alley, but it was very well lit.

One wonders what she said to the officer who was driving the car?

On Thursday’s broadcast of NPR’s “Morning Edition,” DNC Deputy Chair Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) argued that President Trump uses Twitter in a manner that is comparable to the behavior of England’s King George III. Ellison argued that Twitter should block Trump from Twitter and that he “can’t think of anyone who’s been more abusive than Donald Trump.” He added that there should at least be a discussion about the president’s Twitter use and that if Twitter evaluates Trump’s account and concludes that he hasn’t violated any of Twitter’s terms of use, “I’d be satisfied with that.” Ellison later argued that

A home security camera captured the shocking incident Sunday morning of a woman set on fire in a Charleston neighborhood. “We have shootings and things of that nature, but this level of depravity is just shocking to the conscience,” said Charleston Police Chief of Detectives Lt. Steve Cooper. Police haven’t released the video, but Cooper added it’s difficult to watch as the suspect walks up on the porch, douses the sleeping victim with gasoline, and lights her on fire. “She was doused in accelerant and lit on fire by the suspect,” said Cooper. “She runs off the porch, tearing her

Mohammad Yama Aini allegedly assaulted wife Mezhgan Aini, 30, inside their Union Street home in Flushing at 12:30 a.m. Saturday, police sources said. An Afghan diplomat is accused of beating his wife so badly that she ended up in a Queens emergency room — but he won’t be charged because he has diplomatic immunity, police sources told The Post on Sunday. At some point, Aini then drove his wife to Flushing Hospital, where she eventually told workers he had pulled her hair, slapped her and punched her in the face, leaving her with swelling, pain and redness on her right

The Minnesota cop who shot and killed an Australian bride-to-be opened fire on her after being startled by a “loud sound” near his patrol car, investigators say. Officer Mohamed Noor, 31, began blasting at 40-year-old Justine Damond, of Minneapolis, just moments after he and his partner, Matthew Harrity, heard the noise in the alley behind her house, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The agency provided an update Tuesday on their investigation into the Saturday night shooting. Officers Noor and Harrity had been called to Damond’s home after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault happening

Grandparents of American citizens from six Muslim-majority nations who had been banned from coming to the United States under President Trump’s travel ban have gotten the green light to book their flights. The State Department sent a memo to US diplomatic posts overseas reflecting a federal court ruling last week modifying the ban. US District Judge Derrick Watson in Honolulu found the government cannot bar grandparents and other relatives of US citizens from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from getting visas under the ban. Watson declined to put his ruling on hold pending appeal, meaning it went into

One of the hallmarks of the “Ugly American” is the habit of thinking foreigners will understand what you’re saying if you just shout it louder and louder. The Ugly Environmentalist does something similar. He exaggerates the challenge of global warming by using ever more hysterical rhetoric, thinking that if the last doomsday prediction didn’t work, this one will. For instance, Stephen Hawking, the famous astrophysicist, recently said that the consequences of Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord were monumental: “Trump’s action could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of 250 degrees [Celsius] and

A New Mexico man was arrested for allegedly beating his girlfriend and threatening to kill her — after Amazon’s Alexa called police, authorities said. Eduardo Barros, 28, became angered with his unidentified girlfriend while house-sitting in Tijeras, about 15 miles east of Albuquerque, and the dispute suddenly turned physical on July 2, authorities said. During the assault, Barros waved a gun and threatened to kill the woman before he allegedly asked: “Did you call the sheriffs?” The question was inadvertently picked up by the smart speaker and the voice-powered virtual assistant recognized the phrase as a command — prompting it

Tapper did a segment on his “The Lead” show about Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski’s claim that Donald Trump tried to blackmail them with a hit piece in the National Enquirer. During the piece, it showed a cover from the tabloid, which seemed to be about a scandal involving GOP senator Ted Cruz and his wife, Heidi Cruz. Unfortunately, the cover is — literally — fake news.

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

NEW YORK — The Boy Scouts’ chief executive apologized Thursday to members of the scouting community who were offended by the aggressive political rhetoric in President Donald Trump’s recent speech to the Scouts’ national jamboree. The apology came in a statement from Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh, three days after Trump’s speech to nearly 40,000 scouts and adults gathered in West Virginia. Other U.S. presidents have delivered nonpolitical speeches at past jamborees. To the dismay of many parents and former scouts, Trump, a Republican, promoted his political agenda and derided his rivals, inducing some of the scouts in attendance to
