Justine Damondís shooting death case could see a cruel fate
Daily Telegraph ^ | uly 27, 2017 4:02pm | Mathew Murphy

JUSTINE Damond’s killer cop doesn’t have to talk about why he shot her — but if he wants to keep his job, he will be compelled.

The Star Tribune reports that Officer Mohamed Noor has a constitutional right not to talk with anyone pursuing possible criminal charges in her shooting death.

But if the Minneapolis Police Department opens an internal investigation, the law will force him to talk if he wants to keep working as a police officer.

However, if he gives a statement there’s another cruel twist. It can never be used in a criminal case.

In Minnesota, public employees under internal investigation are now read a Garrity Warning, which says that though they are not legally required to say anything, their employer requires it. If an employee doesn’t cooperate, or lies, they could lose their job.

But the statement says any information gathered cannot be used in a criminal case.

I realize that this article is a few weeks old, but I just came across it and haven't seen it posted.

I find this information very concerning.

They are just stating the obvious. You are not required to testify against yourself, whether you are a cop or not. However, if you ARE a cop, you have to comply with an investigation, IF you want to keep your job.

Nothing unusual here.

Jihadist Noor is going to go scot-free on this shooting. Just a minor hiccup in his life.

I though the office was considered to have legally dispatched with government property?

Does anyone know whether any charges have been filed yet in this case? Seems like that would be normal, if he could not be immediately exonerated, then there should be charges, IMO.

Did they EVER investigate the alleged rape that prompted the call? Has a victim or witness ever come forward? With all of the publicity you would they someone would talk....

I'm sorry the killer cop is still breathing, much less still employed.

Getting fired is hardly as cruel a fate as Ms Damond’s.

Agree with you 100%.
This is a total win-win-win-win situation for Jihadist Noor.
He lives amongst the infidels, is well-paid by them, gets to kill them, and suffers no inconvenience along the way.

Even a half-assed prosecutor could pursue this case without using any statements from the police officer.

You fail to mention he is now assured a place in muslime heaven because he killed a non muslime infidel.
He is also a hero to all other muslimes

That is not a blanket waver. The statements can't be used against him in the shooting case, however if he lies or is not forthcoming he could be charged with obstruction of justice or some such.

(hat tip Mr Mojo) The organized Mafia-type defense of the Somali killer is absurd..... the only reason this Moslem swine named Mohamed Noor was hired, and remained on the police force w/ pay, after he gunned down an innocent Christian woman, was because of the police department's heinous PC "diversity" hiring practices. That misguided official PC policy is what's racist here, not the criticism expressed by concerned American citizens. The Somali brand of corrosive, divisive identity politics has no legitimate place in these United States.

Let's get that message echoing across the land.

===============================================

Minneapolis City Council Member Abdi Warsame (center) was joined by Muslim East Africans colluding to manipulate public opinion on the Somali killer cop's ethnicity and religion. "There's a lot of rhetoric where this person is a Somali officer. No, this man is an American citizen," he added.

THEY CANT HAVE IT BOTH WAYS---When Noor was getting fast-tracked onto the police force, the self-serving Somali identity cabal hailed him as a "model Somali hero." When he murders a woman for absolutely no reason, the identity cabal transforms him into “an American.”(HAT TIP KYCATS)

Why would you think that?

Just because his statement is not admissible, it doesn't mean there is no case against him.

There is still the forensic evidence that the bullet came from his gun, there is his partner's testimony, and the process of elimination that it is most clearly he who pulled the trigger.

They don't need his testimony to try him for at least manslaughter. I'd think the best that his own testimony would provide is evidence of 1st or 2nd degree murder, which implies intent or reckless disregard.

You can not be compelled to testify against yourself. That is what the 5th is all about. Now, you can blow it by answering some questions and refusing to answer others.

My understanding is that the game prosecutors play is to ask you a bunch of questions and if you answer just one, you have to answer them all. So they try to trip you up with something minor. That is my understanding. I could be wrong. I was wrong one in grade school, so it’s always possible. :)

No charges yet. If the officer claims fear for his safety then I doubt there ever will be.

Not if the officer pleads fear for his life. Dark night, victim appeared out of nowhere and startled them, officer shoots. Tragic, but justified. Officer is fired. Victim's family collect large settlement. Life goes on.

Jihadist Noor arrived in this country like a nasty virus. He will *not* serve so much as a day in jail.
They have already searched her house for "contraband" for crying out loud.
This killer is going to skate on any meaningful charges. Maybe he will lose his job, yet that's about it.

So, it’s to Mohamed’s advantage to answer any internal affairs questions as quickly and as thoroughly as possible, since nothing he says can be used against him, and his attorney can always argue in court that any evidence presented against him was based on what he said to investigators.

This would certainly be a first: a muzzie telling the truth...
