Judge allows 2nd-degree murder charge in Noor case (Justine Damond Murder)
KSTP.com ^ | 12/7/18 | Ben Rodgers

A judge is allowing prosecutors to add a second-degree murder charge against Mohamed Noor, the Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk, according to court records.

Judge Kathryn Quaintance signed an order allowing an amended complaint Friday.

In the order, Quaintance stated, "the State argued that a sufficient basis exists for the additional charge."

Last week, prosecutors argued that since Noor is already charged with third-degree murder, three of the four elements of a second-degree charge are satisfied. Their petition argued the shooting also satisfied the fourth element - that Noor intended to kill Ruszczyk.

Noor and his partner responded to a 911 call from Ruszczyk the night of July 15, 2017 about a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her south Minneapolis home.

Noor's partner, officer Matthew Harrity, said he heard a thump on the hood of the car before Noor reached across Harrity and fired at Ruszczyk.

Now that the judge has ruled that the 2nd degree charge goes forward, this should be the last update on this case until 4/1/19

Watch — at least one Muslim and/or Somali on the Jury. He will be acquitted or a hung jury.

The case will be resolved by 2030. Nice justice system y’all have there.

Thanks for the update.
Hopefully the animal gets his comeuppance but I’m expecting a hung jury that leads to a slap on the wrist plea deal.
Need to hang, draw and quarter the bastid.

Oh man! I know the feeling. I have hoped that Hillary would be prosecuted ever since Bill left the White House.
