    MINNEAPOLIS — The fatal shooting of an Australian woman by a Minneapolis police officer responding to her 911 call “should not have happened,” police Chief Janee Harteau said Thursday, adding that the officer’s actions “go against who we are in the department.” In her first public remarks since the death of Justine Damond, a 40-year-old life coach and bride-to-be, Harteau defended Officer Mohamed Noor’s training but criticized his actions. “The actions in question go against who we are in the department, how we train and the expectations we have for our officers,” Harteau said. “These were the actions and judgment...

    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. [cut] Three sources with knowledge of the incident said that when they arrived, the officers pulled around back and were immediately confronted by Damond, who was in her pajamas. As she attempted to speak to the cop in the driver’s seat, the other officer apparently unholstered his gun and started blasting — striking her through the driver’s side door, the sources said.

    When Brad and Molly Nemec’s Dodge Durango broke down in downtown Stillwater last month, they called City Hall to explain that it would be stranded overnight. The Lindstrom, Minn., couple, who rescue Jindu dogs destined for slaughter in Korea, were on their way to pick up six dogs in Wisconsin when their SUV overheated near Teddy Bear Park. The dogs, flown from Seoul to Chicago, had been picked up at O’Hare International Airport by a friend of Nemec’s. The friend planned to meet the Nemecs near the Wisconsin Dells, a halfway point between their home and the Chicago airport. “We...

The dogs run away and the officer can be seen climbing the fence and leaving the yard. The...

    Former cops need not apply, but former inmates are being encouraged by the city of Oakland to apply for slots on the city’s new police commission. A notice recently posted on the city’s website for would-be commissioners says, “Must be an Oakland resident. Must be at least 18 years old. Formerly incarcerated individuals encouraged to apply.” Barry Donelan, head of the Oakland Police Officers Association, said recruiting ex-cons to help select the chief and discipline officers for misconduct was “extremely distasteful.” And what really bugs the cops is that the voter-approved measure creating the commission bars current and former Oakland...

    London police officers that patrol local "beats" carry no firearms!!! This has been a practice for over 100 years. They do carry "night sticks", but that is no effective replacement for the lack of loaded firearms!!! There were multiple reports from civilians and onlookers at yesterday evening's massacre of innocent around London Bridge, that local "community" police ran from the Muslin murderers, because they had no firearms to protect themselves and the public!!! If this is true, it is certainly a sorry state of affairs, and should be corrected immediately by the Mayor of London or the Prime Minister!!! The...

    It took school and police officials just a few minutes to extinguish 16-year-old Corey Walgren's promising future. All they did was utter two words: child pornography. Corey, a junior at Naperville North High School in Naperville, Illinois, was a perfectly normal, social, good-looking 16-year-old. He was an honor roll student with dreams of attending a Big Ten college. He had typical interests for a teenager boy: hockey, fishing, and, yes, girls. Corey committed suicide in January, just hours after a school resource officer confronted him about an alleged illegal item on his cell phone—a recording of Corey having sex with...

    For Carter, the fractured relationship between police and the African-American communities they serve is an issue of trust. “I feel like the police don’t trust the communities that they’re protecting, and I feel like the police don’t trust the people that they’re supposed to be protecting, and if we can figure out a way to build this trust between the police and the community, I think we’ll have a better dynamic going forward,” Carter said.

    The man in the Camden, N.J., police video is practically begging to be shot. After using a knife to menace a cashier and a customer in a fast-food restaurant, he strides down a street slashing at the air as police repeatedly order him to drop his weapon. The man keeps walking, defiantly waving the knife. Several cops form a ring around him and move along at a safe distance, block after block. This goes on for several tense minutes, as the viewer waits for shots to ring out. But they never do. Eventually, the man drops the knife and is...

The video, which was originally shared Sunday on Facebook by Mikael Nyren, has managed to rack up 2.2 million views in less than 12 hours. While the video starts with what's presumably another migrant tackling the suspect all by himself, the three female officers who pile onto the suspect are seen getting easily thrown off.  When a male officer comes to help, none of the female officers step in to assist him until it's clear he lost, then move in one...
