Lawyers for the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Damond have filed a response to the state outlining factual misstatements and mischaracterizations.
Mohamed Noors attorneys dispute several items brought up in the states court filing last week, including a motor vehicle stop on May 18, 2017, four training days and misleading discussion of his psych evaluation.
Noors lawyers want this information declared inadmissible in court and not considered for probable cause.
In Wednesdays filing, the lawyers call the state's claims disgraceful and inaccurate," stating that these lies by omission and clear misstatements of fact actively mislead the reader and obscure the truth.
In a prior court filing, prosecutors detail a minor traffic stop, writing in the court filing that Noor "pulled out his gun, carried it toward the car, and pointed it into the driver's window at the driver's head before uttering a word."
Noor's attorneys write that squad car video from the stop shows Noor's gun in a "low carry," and the former officer was calm at the time. They argue Noor "determined the driver was not a threat and holstered his gun about 23 or 24 seconds after arriving at the side of the car."
In the response, Noor's defense team also said squad car video showed the "driver traveled nearly 2 city blocks before stopping," and both Noor and the officer with him suspected "that the driver had hid contraband under the passenger seat."
The defense's filing also argues claims made by the state about Noor's training. Noor's attorneys write that Noor never had an "unsatisfactory day" during his time with a field training officer, and he was never "found to be not acceptable of any task."
The state's reliance on Noor's psych evaluation was also called into question.
Prosecutors argued that Noor himself "reported disliking people and being around them," and he "self-reported disinterest in interacting with other people."
Noor's attorneys argue the court should not consider the prosecution's blind reading of Noor's psych evaluation because the conclusions are, "based on cultural bias and make no reflection of Officer Noor as a person."
Noors attorneys have asked the state to drop some of the charges filed against their client.
Justine Damond update ping.
The guy is entitled to a “spirited” defense by his attorneys. But he looks guilty as sin to me and I think he’s toast.
United Jokes Of America. This scum should have executed the next day.
And there is the defense strategy...
I’m thinking that the murderer is going to get away with his deliberate crime of murder. Minneapolis is in the hands of m*slim loving America-hating politicians who willingly sold out their fellow countrymen for votes.
F¥£ him AND his lawyers ZIP TIES ON ALL their WRISTS TIGHTLY AND I DONT CARE IF HANDS LOSE BLOODFLOW AND ROT OFF.
Meet halfway between MN and TX. BRING THE MURDERING ONE FROM DALLAS.
