    Ahmed Jama's wife said she feared for her life. A rookie Minneapolis police officer has been charged with threatening his wife during an argument at their home the night before he was sworn in as a member of the city's police force. Dakota County prosecutors say Ahmed Jama, 29, got into an argument with his wife at the couple's Apple Valley home around 11 p.m. on Aug. 1, according to a criminal complaint. Jama threatened to shoot his wife in the head, authorities said, telling her that he would get away with it.

Raymond Dehn, who is also a State Representative, is running against current mayor Betsy Hodges in this fall’s election, according to Fox9. He said, “Officers don’t need to carry guns on their person all the time…I’m not saying they don’t have access to that, just like they have access to more lethal weapons in their cars, I would believe they would still have access to their guns in their...

    Guess what everyone! It turns out that not all acts of police brutality and misconduct are equal. To be sure, some are more equal than others. This as we have seen about a week after A Muslim police officers shot and killed an unarmed defenseless white woman. Her crime: Calling 911 twice and slapping the back of the patrol cruiser. While there have been protests and outcries thankfully, the overwhelming majority of the leftists have now begum to adopt the mentality of cop worshiping goons like the ones who murdered Kelly Thomas, an unarmed 150 lb white man with schizophrenia...

"Whose bodily fluids are they looking for? Is she a suspect? I don't understand why they're looking for controlled substances inside her home. I don’t understand why they’re looking for writings inside...

    Before Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor shot Justine Ruszczyk through the open driver's side window of his squad, a woman had approached the back of the patrol car and "slapped" it, according to a court document filed Monday. Authorities say Ruszczyk, who also used the surname Damond, called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her south Minneapolis home. She called again 10 minutes later to check on the status of the responding officer's arrival. Soon after, she was shot. A search warrant was filed by Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigators to look at the...

    FULL TITLE: Chaos in Minneapolis: Angry protesters shut down mayor’s press conference as police chief RESIGNS over death of bride-to-be Justine Damond at hands of 'startled' cop Just hours after the Minneapolis police chief was forced to resign on Friday over the fatal shooting of an Australian woman, outraged protesters took over the mayor's City Hall press conference and called for her resignation.

    Political correctness put her in the way of a “nervous, jumpy” Muslim cop who took her life. A forty-year-old Australian woman named Justine Damond called 911 in Minneapolis Saturday night to report what she thought might be a rape; when police arrived, she approached the police car, and a Minneapolis police officer named Mohamed Noor shot her dead. Since then, Noor has refused to be interviewed by investigators, but has spoken to friends about what happened and why. The more Noor and those who know him have spoken, the more it becomes clear: Justine Damond was a casualty of “Islamophobia.”...

    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...

    Women's rights advocates have questions following the release of transcripts of the calls 40-year-old Justine Damond made to 911 before she was fatally shot by a Minneapolis police officer Saturday night. Was the nine minutes and 41 seconds it took officers to arrive on the scene too long? And why did Damond need to call 911 twice to report a possible sexual assault behind her home? Damond called for the first time at 11:27 p.m. Saturday. She told the dispatcher she could hear someone behind her house. "I'm not sure if she's having sex or being raped," she said. It's...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis Police have released transcripts of two calls that were made prior to the death of Australian woman Justine Damond, moments before she was shot and killed by an officer. The transcripts show she called twice, first reporting her concern that she heard sex noises and a woman yelling help. “I’m not sure if she’s having sex or being raped,” the transcript says Damond told the operator. “I think she just yelled out ‘help,’ but it’s difficult the sound has been going on for a while, but I think, I don’t think she’s enjoying it.” WEB EXTRA:...

    And so the questions just grow more intense. There is still no evidence that Noor is a jihadi or that this was a jihad attack. But this does seem to be yet another manifestation of the fear of “Islamophobia” charges resulting in a Muslim being placed in a position for which he was not qualified and was able to do harm to others. The quintessential example of this phenomenon is Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood jihad mass murderer. With three complaints against him in two years, Mohamed Noor seems at very least to be dangerously reckless and/or incompetent....

    I am flabbergasted at the extent of fake news. I am listening to ABC news on WMAL in Washington D.C. They begin to "report" about the latest development in what they referred to as "the Minneapolis police shooting."Here's what they proceeded to describe: "The officers involved in the shooting failed to turn on their mobile cameras and so there is no video record of the shooting. However, after the shooting the officers were both involved in administering life saving measures."
