Yes, we know the drill. Muslims are the ‘real’ victims of any Muslim violence against anyone. The family of Mohamed Noor says they are “traumatized” and insist he made an “honest mistake.” (“honest” as in, being true to his quran-commanded duty to kill the unbelievers unless they convert to Islam?)
Daily Mail (h/t Sara S) Justine Damond was shot by Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor on Saturday night after she called police to an alley behind her home to investigate a possible sexual assault.
‘We feel so bad about this, we are traumatized ourselves,’ a family member said, according to News Corp. ‘If you wait for the investigation, you’ll know it was an honest and sincere event that transpired. Until then we can’t really say anything.’
But that’s not all.
On Tuesday, several Minneapolis police officers — who like Noor, are Somali Muslim — spoke anonymously to the Star-Tribune about fearing for their lives in the wake of the incident. “This is scaring our families,” explained one officer, who spoke on behalf of the group. “It’s difficult to deal with some media groups going to other Somali officers’ houses who are not involved in this shooting,” he said “It makes it hard to do this job when you’re worried about your family.” (Oh, Boo Hoo)
Officer Mohamed Noor shot 40-year-old Justine Damond several times in the abdomen as she stood in the alley behind her home and told the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension that we will not consent to an interview about the incident.
9NEWS “Officer Noor has declined to be interviewed by BCA agents at this time. Officer Noor’s attorney did not provide clarification on when, if ever, an interview would be possible,” said the statement.
Unconfirmed reports say the Somali cop allegedly thought thought he was being caught in an ambush because of a loud noise near the squad car.
NY Post Radio chatter from the shooting, which was published by the local website Minnesota PoliceClips, indicates that aerial fireworks may have been the cause of the “loud sound” that Harrity heard before the shooting.
At one point in the audio, a dispatcher tells cops that someone reported hearing “two shots” to the east. In response, an officer says: “We heard those sounds from the station, those are probably aerial fireworks.”
