Don't give police license to kill

Don't give police license to kill

The police chief had been on vacation when the shooting occurred, but returned to work on Thursday. Damond had called police about what she thought was a sexual assault in the alley behind her home.

Officer Matthew Harrity, the driver, told BCA investigators that "Officer Noor discharged his weapon" from the passenger seat.

At a press conference, police chief Harteau said: "Based on the publicly released information from the BCA [Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Apprehension], this should not have happened". Damond was shot as she came up to the squad's driver side window, by Officer Mohamed Noor. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Neither that officer nor his partner had their body camera running at the time, making it more hard to answer questions about the shooting.

In a statement, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner ruled Damond's death a homicide and said she died Saturday at 11:51 p.m.in the alleyway. I am no expert in police procedure, let alone handguns, but this strikes me as beyond unusual, as well as highly unsafe (to the other officer's hearing, if nothing else).

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Noor has secured an attorney and has so far refused to speak to investigators about the incident.

The march began with remarks from Rev. Ashley Harness, a pastor at Lyndale United Church of Christ. Castile's mom, Valerie Castile, came out of the home and hugged family members.

Harteau said she was backpacking in remote mountains with poor cellphone reception, but receiving briefings.

Members of Castile's were also present at the march and the organizers notes on the march's Facebook page that the event was meant to "seek healing, Justice for Justine, and justice for ALL others that died at the hands of the police". People in their yards watched as marchers passed.

Once at the park, Don Damond's mother, Sharon Sebring, praised the community, the media and neighbors for their support.

"This has had a negative impact on the community trust we have built".

"I mean, how can a woman out in the street in her pajamas seeking assistance from the police be shot like that?"

"I think that the community is kind of nearly holding their breath because ... the dynamics of this shooting are different".

Plunkett also wants a coroner's report with an outside lab, saying "it would be nice to know if there were some Ambien in [Damond's] system".

"It's just a tragedy from all perspectives", said Jack Kattner of Minneapolis.

'The fatal shooting of Justine Damond should not have happened.

Attorney, activist and mayoral candidate Nekima Levy-Pounds also spoke at the rally.

Justine Damond, 40, was shot by a Minneapolis police officer on Saturday after calling 9-1-1 to report a possible rape in progress.

Damond's family says all they want to do "is bring Justine home to Australia" to give her a farewell in her hometown among family and friends.

"I'll do everything in my power to make sure due process is followed and justice is served".

Harteau said his training and qualifications fulfilled the expectations of a Minneapolis police officer.

"There isn't anything that hadn't been done because I wasn't here", she said. Plans are in place to enhance the current policy for when they should be on - and covering multiple scenarios, she said.

She dismissed the notion that Noor was an affirmative action hire.

Immediately after Ruszczyk was shot, both officers got out of the vehicle and tried to help save her, Harrity told investigators. "It's not about race or ethnicity".

He added that the family would wait until officials complete their investigation of the shooting before deciding whether to file a civil lawsuit. Arradondo said the department is just eight months into a department-wide rollout, and the review includes focusing on how often officers activate them.
