A story you're not gonna see...

...anytime soon on the CBC...affirmative action

Justine's loved ones said she called 911 after hearing what she thought was a sexual assault in the alley. Moments later, a responding officer, Mohamed Noor, shot and killed her from inside his squad car.

WCCO also learned that when she approached the squad car, Officer Noor, the first Somali-American officer to work in Minneapolis’ 5th precinct reached across his partner in the driver’s seat, then shot and killed Damond
.
Witness the perils of affirmative action...
Thirty year old Noor had joined the department in March 2015. Before that, he worked in property management.

A report via CBS cited Officer Mohammed Noor’s attorney saying the policeman’s weapon discharging multiple gunfire led to the death of the woman.

Both officers had body cameras but they weren’t turned on.
I'm guessing Black Lives Matter Minnesota was not available for comment.

UPDATE: Ask the Toronto Red Star...
Minneapolis Somali community braces for backlash
One prominent Somali BLM activist is quoted as suddenly saying, "I hope the conversation will focus on police reform, not racial stereotypes."

You mean, like evil white cops murdering totally blameless black people? Un-fucking-believable.

RELATED: Remember the Star covering Sammy Yatim?
“Since when did it become a crime to be a teenager, I ask you?”
Of course, there were a few small differences.

Yatim wasn't the 911 caller. He was the perp.
Yatim had a knife, which he swung at a woman.
Yatim refused to put down the knife and advanced towards cops.
The cop who shot Yatim wasn't black.

All the difference in the world.

UPDATE2: Noor partner gives statement...

...doesn't make things better...
"Officers Were 'Startled’ By Noise'"
Officer Harrity's lawyer later stated that Harrity & Noor were "concerned about a possible ambush."

Yeah... ambushed by a slight, blonde, pyjama clad yoga teacher. You really wanna die on that hill, Officer Harrity?

Meanwhile, Officer Noor, who has been the subject of three complaints since being hired in 2015, has refused to talk to investigators.

Gee just imagine the shit storm if Mo's race was white and the woman was Somali.
Cameras turned off, why?

sounds like officer noor should have stuck with his previous career in property management.

bear in mind, this was a complaint about sexual assault, and when the woman who phoned it in approached the police car, officer noor, from the passenger seat, unholstered and reached across his partner to blast this poor woman into eternity.

and, yes... bodycams off.

let's all feel bad for the somali "community."
