PUBLISHED: 13:06 EDT, 19 July 2017Killer policeman Mohamed Noor has said he was ‘startled’ by his victim Justine Damond seconds before he opened fire.The cop has told friends about why he gunned down the bride-to-be, 40, in his first account of what happened Saturday night.DailyMail.com has spoken to those friends to reveal for the first time his account of what happened that night.The fact Noor has disclosed the events of the evening to friends will raise questions over his conduct.The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA), which is investigating the shooting, said in a statement Tuesday that he had declined to be interviewed and that his attorney had not said if or when an interview would take place.However, many of the key parts of Noor’s narrative gel with the version of events released by the BCA, who had interviewed his partner, Matthew Harrity. …Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a friend of Noor told DailyMail.com that the officer had opened fire when an unidentified figure emerged from the dark and ran towards the vehicle.The officer said he was not sure what the person was carrying and momentarily opened fire through his driver-partner’s open window. …According to Noor’s version when they reached the end of the alley, they came across a waiting, panicking figure.It was dark, and the figure was moving around and approached their vehicle.Noor said he did not know whether the figure who rushed towards their vehicle was the 911 caller or even if it was a man or woman.He his weapon through Harrity’s open driver’s window hitting his victim once in the abdomen. …The friend said: ‘Mohamed believes he acted to protect himself and his colleague, but accepts since that she was not armed. …The officer, who is now suspended form the Minneapolis P.D., feels he has been ‘thrown under the bus’ by his Minneapolis police colleagues, the friend said.‘He is aware that they normally come together at times like this and support each other with slogans like “Blue Lives Matter”.‘But in this situation he has realized he is probably alone with his legal team and Somali police colleagues.‘He feels like he is being thrown under the bus and his colleagues are accusing him of not showing proper police conduct on Saturday night. …‘His feeling is ‘I am an immigrant, a Muslim and not white… but that is OK as I know the Somalian community and friends will support me.’Friends say they would soon be starting fund raising to help meet his legal bills among the Somali community.… Some of his friends have been shocked at some of the online abuse he has been receiving, however, with remarks claiming Justine would not have been shot by the Somalian-American officer if she had been ‘wearing a burka or hijab.’… Police said Harrity had indicated he heard a loud sound near his car, in the seconds before his partner Noor opened fire. …
Cops shoot too many innocent people in the U.S., as I noticed back in 2010 when I encouraged the mother of an 18-year-old killed by an Obama Administration agent in my neighborhood to sue. (The family eventually won $3 million
from a judge.)
But the Obama Administration, the media, and the NGOs highjacked what could have been a broad-based reform movement to train and incentivize police better, and instead turned it into another front in the War on White Racism in order to drive blacks to the polls to vote Democratic. (Notice how Hillary’s initial response to the BLM terrorist massacre of cops in Dallas last summer was to denounce “implicit bias” against blacks.)
Now, in the Twin Cities over the last year, we’ve had two notorious shootings, both by diversity hire cops. Philando Castile was shot by officer Jeronimo Yanez, who obviously wouldn’t have been thought of as white by the media if he had been shot by a white cop. And now a Somali cop, Mohamed Noor, shoots a blonde lady for startling him.
One reason we have too many killings by cops is because we have a lot of affirmative action in police hiring, such as Yanez and Noor getting Pokemon Points for not being white, which means those who do get hired are not necessarily the best available to hire.
A more general reason is that cops, like most people these days, are more cautious about their own safety than in the past. In general, that is a good thing, but this “I’m going home tonight” attitude is running into diminishing marginal returns and needs to be more carefully calibrated.
Of course, the Establishment instead blaming it all on the world’s most evil thing, White Racism, has turned out to be vastly destructive.
