    Default US Cops Strike Again

    This is sad...Australian calls for help and gets shot dead.

    No body cameras turned on? Riiiiight!!

    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    Yeah... read about it earlier.

    No body cameras switched on and car camera didn't capture it either.

    It's looking like another American police case of shoot first, ask questions later.

    I read it early also
    Apart from being extremely sad
    I thought, funny how this makes news, it must happen every other day over there.
    If u want to go on an expedition get a Land Rover, if u want to come home from an expedition get a Landcruiser!

    Apparently she was talking to the driver of the cop car, and the cop in the passenger seat has shot her through the drivers door???

    WTF??? That would mean he would have had to have fired very close to hitting the driver.

    This whole story is becoming more weird... so many things just don't make a lot of sense.

    Another good advert for the "safety" of having everyone armed. I think I'd rather live in downtown Mosul than anywhere in the "Land of the (not so) Free"
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    It has been a very badly reported story
    The son has report the cops shot his Mother, its not his mother at all, it is the guys son from a previous relationship.
    And soon to be his Step Mum when the pair got married.

    'Officer Mohamed Noor shot Ms Damond more than once from the passenger seat of his police vehicle, according to several reports.

    Noor, the first Somali-American officer at Minneapolis' 5th Precinct, was in the passenger seat and fired multiple times across his partner at Ms Damond'

    She had reportedly been speaking to police through the driver's side window
    Damond was shot by officer sitting in the passenger seat through driver door
    Mohamed Noor has been named as the officer who shot 40-year-old Australian
    His lawyer Tom Plunkett confirmed he fired his weapon on Saturday night
    City is steel reeling from the shooting death by cop of Philando Castille in 2016
    She moved to Minnesota to marry 'rockstar love of her life', Don Damond, 50
    Noor has two open complaints against him from 2017 and one from 2016

    I bet it had nothing to do with "policing" and was more to do with Islam.

    More unfolding news about the cop.

    Apparently there are two previous cases of excessive force against him.

    And a statement from the Officer
    (obviously a statement written by his lawyer)


    Maybe this proves a point
    It is safer for Americans to bare arms and sort out issues themselves, than risk calling the Police.

    Sadly, nothing will bring back this poor women's life or repair the damage to her family and loved ones.

    Police officer has his job, co-officer and the legal system to protect him.
    Very sad.

    Most Americans would know to stay in their homes when they call the Police about such a matter.
    The 911 responder would have or should have also told her this i'd have thought.

    But being an Aussie, we'd just walk out to meet them.
    There is a lot of questions that need to be answered.

    Nearby Fireworks (crackers) going off is being suggested as a possible reason the Officer Noor shot the Australian women

    Also been mentioned on US Radio he is refusing to help and talk to investigators.
    3 people were there i guess, 1 is now dead, 1 is the killer, 1 is an eye witness.

    Surely this cant be that hard, unless the Cops have conspired not to tell the whole story.
    Looks like no other witness's, they can say whatever by the looks.

    Amazed the killer hasn't been locked up.
    Anyone else would be.

    EDIT: Been reported his wife recently divorced him and she was against him becoming a Police Officer.
