Skip to comments.Decision Made in Damond Case; Noor Listed on Hennepin County Jail Roster
Posted on 03/20/2018 10:25:08 AM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo
Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor, who fatally shot Justine Damond last July, is now listed on the jail roster in Hennepin County and county attorney Mike Freeman has scheduled a press conference for 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Hennepin County Government Center.
According to the roster, he is being held on possible third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges.
Damond's family issued the following statement:
Justines family in Australia and the US applaud todays decision to criminally charge Officer Noor with Justines murder as one step toward justice for this iniquitous act. While we waited over eight months to come to this point, we are pleased with the way a grand jury and County Attorney Mike Freeman appear to have been diligent and thorough in investigating and ultimately determining that these charges are justified. We remain hopeful that a strong case will be presented by the prosecutor, backed by verified and detailed forensic evidence, and that this will lead to a conviction. No charges can bring our Justine back. However, justice demands accountability for those responsible for recklessly killing the fellow citizens they are sworn to protect, and todays actions reflect that.

PING PING PING!!!!!
I am shocked. Never believed he would be charged.
Join the club!
Ha freaking Ha!!! Now, just a little jailhouse justice and were square.
I, for one, am not satisfied. There is no doubt of his guilt - I want him to fry. Yesterday.
The next FReepathon starts in about two weeks.
We need to finish this one first.
Come on FReepers, lets do this!
Good, it’s about time.
Third degree murder ? What’s that good for ? 6 months in lockup and a set of steak knives ?
Count me in as amazed too.
“I, for one, am not satisfied. There is no doubt of his guilt - I want him to fry. Yesterday. “
Me either. He should have been executed the night of his crime. If the case goes to trial in that democrat farce of a city he will skate.
And 2nd degree manslaughter.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
At least he made it home safe that night.
Bless his heart.
Don’t count your chickens. They charged the cop that shot Philando Castile in suburban Minneapolis for pretty much the same thing and a jury found him not guilty. Noor could walk as well.
