  • Mohamed Noor To Go To Trial In Justine Ruszczyk Damond’s Death

    09/27/2018 5:52:37 PM PDT · by ButThreeLeftsDo · 26 replies ^ | 9/27/18 | Reg Chapman
    A Hennepin County judge says the case against former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor will go forward. The former Minneapolis police officer shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk Damond last year. The Australian native had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault behind her southwest Minneapolis home. Noor’s attorneys say he acted reasonably when he shot Ruszczyk Damond. They’re asking the judge to dismiss the charges. However, prosecutors say Noor acted recklessly in using deadly force. Noor’s defense attorneys filed motions they hoped would lead to the case against their client being dismissed. Instead, they sat with the former Minneapolis...
  • Murder Case Against Ex-Officer Mohamed Noor Heads Back to Court

    Attorneys head to court Thursday to argue over whether a criminal case should go forward against a former Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot an unarmed Australian woman who had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home. Mohamed Noor’s attorneys maintain he acted reasonably July 15, 2017, when he shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond. They’ve asked the judge to dismiss the charges. But prosecutors say Noor acted recklessly in using deadly force against Damond, a 40-year-old life coach and dual citizen who was engaged to be married. Here's a look at the issues in...

    Hundreds of teens identified as Somalis rampaged through the Valley Fair Amusement Park in Shakopee, Minnesota. It was the first night of the ValleyScare activities. Police said, “The number of individuals running throughout the park increased substantially and was difficult to control.” They had to shut the park down early as the numbers of teens in the mob grew to hundreds. People described them fighting, terrorizing children, pushing children, knocking over Halloween props. One victim said the media doesn’t want this out because three Muslims are running for office.

    Former Minneapolis cop's behavior before shooting death of Australian woman raised concerns, court filings say. (Full title). ... The former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond once put a gun to a driver’s head during a traffic stop and sometimes ignored calls, according to court filings indicating that psychiatrists and training officers voiced concerns about his fitness for duty. The revelations surfaced after defense attorneys filed a motion Wednesday seeking to dismiss murder and manslaughter charges against Mohamed Noor, who is accused of shooting Damond in July 2017 after she dialed 911 to report...
  • Mohamed Noor’s Attorneys File Response Disputing State’s Claims of Red Flags (Damond murder)

    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 Noor’s attorneys dispute several items brought up in the state’s court filing last week, including a motor vehicle stop on May 18, 2017, four training days and “misleading discussion” of his psych evaluation. Noor’s lawyers want this information declared inadmissible in court and not considered for probable cause. In Wednesday’s filing, the lawyers call the state's claims “disgraceful” and “inaccurate," stating that “these lies by omission and clear misstatements of fact actively...
  • Court Documents: Prosecutors Say Noor Showed a Reckless Disregard For Human Life (Damond murder)

    09/05/2018 8:23:47 PM PDT · by ButThreeLeftsDo · 26 replies ^ | 9/5/18 | Ana Lastra
    Hennepin County prosecutors say a now-former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Damond in July 2017 showed a reckless disregard for human life, citing his response to previous police calls and his training records. Prosecutors filed documents Wednesday detailing Mohamed Noor's psychological evaluation prior to becoming an officer and his actions during a call hours before he killed Damond. Those training records are contained in the new filings. They offer the first glimpse of Noor's behavior and personal insights while he was preparing to become an officer. During Noor's 2015 psychological evaluation, he self-reported that "... he disliked...

    A Hennepin County District Judge has denied a motion to place a court filing under seal in the case of former Minneapolis officer Mohamed Noor, who faces a trial in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk. The request by Noor's attorneys would have sealed a motion they filed last month. The attorneys had asked the court to suppress Noor's psychological records obtained in two search warrants. Judge Kathryn Quaintance wrote in her decision on Tuesday that Noor's attorneys argued in private on Aug. 19 that sealing a suppression motion and "correlating exhibits" are necessary to protect "confidential and medically privileged"...

    A former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman last summer is seeking to have a civil case filed against himself and others stayed until after his trial on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges has concluded. Mohamed Noor filed a request for a stay Thursday in U.S. District Court. The family of Justine Damond - the woman killed in the July 2017 shooting - filed a lawsuit in federal court last month against Noor, partner Matthew Harrity, former police chief Janee Harteau, current police chief Medaria Arradondo and the city. In the lawsuit, Damond's father, John...

    Defense attorneys want charges dismissed against a former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman last year. Attorneys for ex-officer Mohamed Noor argue in motions filed Wednesday that the charges should be dropped because of prosecutorial misconduct and lack of probable cause. Noor is charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the July 15, 2017, death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a 40-year-old life coach who was engaged to be married. She was killed after calling 911 to report a possible sexual assault. Prosecutors say Noor was in a squad car's passenger seat when he shot Damond...

    The family of Justine Damond filed a lawsuit Monday against the city and key figures in the case of her death. Damond died just over a year ago when she was fatally shot by former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor. In the lawsuit, Damond's father, John Ruszczyk, claims the defendants violated the Fourth and 14th Amendments. The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $200 million from Noor, Officer Matthew Harrity, the city of Minneapolis, former Minneapolis police chief Janee Harteau, and current Police Chief Medaria Arradondo. The lawsuit states Damond "suffered the loss of her enjoyment of life, including marrying,...

    The migrant violence that is becoming a feature of daily life in Sweden, Germany, France and elsewhere in Europe is now coming to the United States. Did we think we would be immune? Maine’s Sun Journal reported last week that a “melee” broke out near Kennedy Park in Lewiston, Maine, initiated by “at least two dozen teenagers, preteens and adults.” This mob was made up of Somali Muslim migrants: News Center Maine reports: “[A]ccording to family members, the fight was between white and Somali members of the Lewiston community.” Our immigration chickens are, as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright would say,...
  • Somali gang continues to terrorize park – in Maine

    Last month, two dozen Somali youths swarmed and attacked two Maine residents in a park in Lewiston, beating them with sticks while laughing, as video of the incident shows. One of the victims was hospitalized, but no charges were filed. Then, last Tuesday, a group of Somalis fired pellet guns at non-Somalis in the same park. A fight broke out and one non-Somali, a 38-year-old father of two, died days later from his injuries. Kennedy Park in Lewiston has become the focal point of such clashes, according to reports. Previously, a 10-year-old girl was jumped and beaten by a Somali...

    In the wake of the bloody melee, a curfew is in place in Lewiston, a longtime gateway city for Somali migrant resettlement. And increasingly, Lewiston, Maine resembles Manchester, UK or Saint-Denis, France than an American city. Police said Thursday a man who was badly beaten two days earlier in a nighttime brawl near Kennedy Park remains in guarded condition. A clash of two groups occurred on Knox Street after teens in a car reportedly drove past the park and shot pellets and BBs at a group gathered there, according to Sun Journal sources who said they witnessed the events. Several...

    The Press Herald doesn’t see fit to mention the fact that this teen mob was made up of Somali Muslim migrants. Why cover this up? Because apparently Lewiston officials, as well as the local media there, are intent upon covering up migrant crime, so that the non-Muslim natives will remain ignorant and complacent regarding the Muslim migrant influx. We see the same coverup happening all over Europe. An update on this story. “Man who was ‘trying to get his life straightened out’ dies from beating in brawl at Lewiston’s Kennedy Park,” by Matt Byrne, Press Herald, June 15, 2018: The 38-year-old man who...

    FYI--Muslim Somali refugees don’t come directly from Somalia, but were hand-picked for migration by Obama from all over the world including: Kenya, South Africa, Malaysia, Malta, and even, from Saudi Arabia. From February 1, 2005 to February 1, 2015 Obama hand-picked a total of 64,332 Somalis to the US from all over the world! Early reports say some of the Muslim Somalis were placed in these states: Minnesota: 10,804 Mississippi: 3 Missouri: 2,132 Nebraska: 322 Nevada: 331 New Hampshire: 270 New Jersey: 41 New Mexico: 161 New York: 3,721 North Carolina: 1,212 North Dakota: 690 Ohio: 5,439

    In what is just the latest incident of violence by Somali refugees in the United States, a gang has been caught on video attacking victims in a Lewiston, Maine, park. Maine First Media reported witnesses said the attack began when one of the victims asked an attacker for a lighter for his cigarette. One victim was hurt badly enough to be taken to a hospital, even though no charges were filed. Main First Media said a dozen Somali youth “swarmed and attacked two local residents in Kennedy Park last Thursday evening. The Somali mob attacked around 7:45 pm, just as...

    A motion filed by lawyers representing the woman accused of starting fires on the campus of St. Catherine University seeking to suppress evidence obtained as a result of search warrants has been denied by a federal court judge. In early February, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced a three-count indictment of Tnuza Jamal Hassan, charging her with attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, making a false statement to the FBI and arson. The charges came in connection to fires that were set at St. Kate's on Jan. 17, including inside a building that housed a day...

    The college student, then just 18, left little doubt of her intentions when federal agents in Minnesota approached her last fall following a thwarted attempt to go to Afghanistan. Tnuza Hassan offered a surprisingly forthcoming account of her itinerary and the reasons behind it in the September encounter: The St. Catherine University student said she wanted to join al-Qaida and, when pressed by an FBI agent, conceded that she would be willing to kill if ordered. Agents later found an image of the twin towers in flames on a cellphone she ditched before flying overseas. But four months passed before...

    The former Minneapolis police officer charged for fatally shooting Justine Damond last July plans to plead not guilty, using self-defense and reasonable force as a defense during trial, according to court documents. Mohamed Noor's intent to plead not guilty was included in a Rule 9 Disclosure that was filed in Hennepin County Wednesday. Noor was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in March. He posted bail with conditions on March 22 and was released from the Hennepin County Jail. He is scheduled to appear for an omnibus hearing on May 8. If convicted of third-degree murder, he could face...
