Justine Damond with her fiancé, Don Damond, and stepson, Zach DamondFacebook
The Australian woman who was shot dead by Minnesota cops was a deeply spiritual person who left her life in Sydney to move to America for the man she loved, friends said Monday.

Justine Damond, who worked as a spiritual mentor, made the tough choice to move across the world in 2015 after meeting fiancé Don Damond during a workshop in the US.

“It was a difficult decision for her to make,” her close pal Eloise King told the Sydney Morning Herald Monday.


“She was committed to love and the relationship that was there for her. It didn’t take long for him to propose and for them to get their life started together.”

Damond, 40, was shot and killed by police outside her home in Fulton on Saturday night after she called to report a “sound” in the alley behind the house.

One of the officers blasted her through the driver’s door as she tried to speak to police in her driveway. Neither their bodycams nor the patrol car’s dashcam were turned on at the time of the shooting.

“She thought there was something bad that was happening and next thing I know, they take my best friend’s life. So I’m just done. F—k the police,” said her stepson, Zach Damond.

In Sydney, friends gathered at Damond’s parents’ home in Freshwater as her family tried to make sense of her death.

“This is a very difficult time for our family,” the Ruszczyk family said in a statement. “We are trying to come to terms with this tragedy and to understand why this has happened.”

Friend Julie Reed remembered Damond, who used her fiance’s last name ahead of their nuptials next month, for all the “joy she brought to our lives.”

King called Damond “infectious and loving.”

“I know everyone thinks this when a loved one goes in any kind of manner but she was seriously one of the most beautiful people that has ever walked the face of the planet,” King said. “She was just infectious, not just for me. There are so many people that would talk about her in the same way.”

Officer who shot unarmed white homeowner in her own yard is black Somali-American Mohamed Noor
July 17, 2017 | Carmine Sabia | Print Article

The police officer who shot unarmed, white Australian woman Justine Damond has been identified.

Police sources have named the shooter as Officer Mohamed Noor, according to Kare 11.

The officer started on the force in 2015 and, at the time of the shooting, had two outstanding complaints against him, Kare 11’s Lou Raguse tweeted.

Mohamed Noor, the officer involved in the deadly shooting of Justine Damond, has two open complaints against him from ’17. One ’16 complaint

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges praised Officer Noor in May 2016 in a Facebook post where she called his joining the force a “wonderful sign of building trust and community policing at work.”

Noor shot across his partner, striking and killing Damond, as she spoke to the officer driving the police car, according to sources.

Noor’s partner was described as “stunned” by the shooting.

He is the first Somali officer to work in the 5th Precinct, according to a Minneapolis newsletter.

Authorities have confirmed that no weapon was found at the scene, Kare 11 reported.

Some snackbar savage was given a uniform and a gun and as a result he murders a housewife standing on the street in her nightgown and nobody is talking.

Now I know we shouldn't jump to conclusions becasue that would be unfair, but...

KING: Police brutality jumped a racial fence with Minneapolis cop shooting of Justine Damond


Monday, July 17, 2017, 1:48 PM

More than 660 people have been killed by American police so far in 2017. This year is on pace to be the deadliest on record for people killed by American police since national databases began keeping track in 2013. No other developed nation in the world has 10% of that number. We are experiencing a full-blown crisis of police brutality in this country, but it's hardly getting any coverage as Donald Trump absolutely sucks the wind out of the news cycle every single day.

A few weeks ago, a buddy of mine told me "Shaun — I don't think this country is ever really going to give a damn about police brutality until they see it destroying the lives of white families." I think he's right. That's the American way. It's what we're basically seeing with the opioid crisis in our country right now. As our nation seems to be coming to grips with the alarming crisis of drug addiction affecting and destroying families from coast to coast, we're beginning to see emergency solutions bust right on through the war on drugs. The level of humanity and compassion being shown to those affected by the opioid crisis is right. I support it. But that same humanity and compassion was absolutely missing during the crack epidemic of the 80s and 90s. Instead, America's jails and prisons were stocked full with addicts and dealers alike.

This weekend in Minneapolis, I believe police brutality jumped the racial fence when a beautiful, blonde haired, white woman, Justine Damond, a yoga and meditation instructor from Australia, who was just a few weeks away from getting married, was shot and killed by a Minneapolis police officer outside of her home. From all indications, Damond called the police herself when she believed she heard some type of disturbance in the alley behind her home. At almost midnight on Saturday, when she met the officers outside in her pajamas, an officer inside of the car shot and killed Justine. She wasn't found to be carrying a weapon. The cops shot and killed an unarmed white yoga instructor in her pajamas who called them for help. It's ludicrous.

Police have so far refused to give any adequate details on why officers felt the need to shoot this woman. But local activists and leaders weren't so worried about the initial statement from the department because every single officer in Minneapolis now wears a body camera — a reform that was hard-fought from the community. Except, just like we've seen in numerous cases of police brutality against African Americans in this country, both officers claim that their cameras weren't turned on at the time of the shooting. They also claim that the camera in their squad car failed to capture anything.


In other words, the only witness besides the cops to the shooting is dead, no known footage of it exists, and all we will have left to go by is the word of the cops who did the shooting. If the past is any indication, we should expect the officers to corroborate each other's stories and speak of how the yoga instructor caused them to fear for their lives. Except this time, police will not be able to lean on racist stereotypes and tropes to carry them through a wave of public backlash. Not only that, but their shooting death of Justine Damond is already dominating news headlines in the United States and Australia.

Here's the thing — I think Eric Garner, who was choked to death by the NYPD three years ago today, is the perfect face of police brutality victims. So is Sandra Bland. So is Tamir Rice. So is Amadou Diallo. So is Rekia Boyd. So is Jordan Edwards. So is Philando Castile. But I'll be honest with you, I think a lot of well-meaning white people have looked at the most well-known cases of police brutality, and have seen a black problem that is simply unlikely to visit them like it is now visiting the family of Justine Damond.

I don't know how familiar you are with the concept of "mirror neurons." Google it. It's some deeply fascinating stuff. Simply put, it's the concept of how when you see something happening to someone who looks like you, or reminds you of yourself, you have neurons in your brain that fire off almost like you yourself are experiencing the thing you are watching. For the past three years, African Americans across the country have been watching the horrors of police brutality and internalizing so much of the pain as those mirror neurons fire off. The pain and the plight are personal.

Maybe, just maybe, with the shooting death of Justine Damond, millions of white people, for the very first time, will now see a victim of police brutality, and see themselves.

I wasn't aware that this was the first time a white person had ever been shot by a cops.

This seems to be what the schwoogies (and Shaun King) are implying.

Let me get this straight... a white Australian woman in her pajamas was chatting with a cop in the driver's seat of a squad car, when the cop's partner in the passneger seat, a jittery rookie Somali cop(read: quota stuffer), pulled out his gun and blasted a coupla bullets past his partner's head, and into said pajamed aussie Sheila? And this all happened in midwestern white bread Minnesota?

Apparently, Minnesota law allows the shooting officer to not speak to investigators (???) so the only account we have so far is his partner, who says he was startled by a loud noise just before the woman walked up to the window.

Officer: Partner fired fatal shot moments after loud sound
AMY FORLITI

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The partner of a Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman who had called 911 told investigators he was startled by a loud sound near their squad car seconds before his partner fired his weapon.

Officer Matthew Harrity's account, as given by state investigators, is the first to emerge of the moments leading up to the death of Justine Damond, a 40-year-old meditation teacher and life coach who was due to be married in August. It's also the only one, since Officer Mohamed Noor — who fired the shot that killed Damond — has so far refused to be interviewed.

Damond's death late Saturday night in an alley behind her southwest Minneapolis home sparked anger and a demand for answers both in the city and in her home country, where the shooting has been front-page news for days.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said Damond approached the driver's side window of the squad car immediately after Harrity said he had been startled by the sound. Noor, in the passenger seat, shot Damond through the open driver's side window, the BCA said.

Harrity was interviewed Tuesday. The BCA said Noor's attorney didn't say when or if Noor would talk to investigators, and under the law an interview can't be compelled.

Noor's attorney didn't respond to messages from The Associated Press.

Harrity and Noor are on paid administrative leave. Harrity has been with the Minneapolis police department for one year, and Noor has been with the department for nearly two.

According to the BCA, Harrity told investigators that he and Noor responded to a 911 call from Damond about a possible assault near her home at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

Harrity was driving the squad car as the officers went through an alley to look for a suspect. The squad lights were off when the noise startled him, Harrity said.

No weapon was found at the scene. The officers did not turn on their body cameras until after the shooting, and the squad car camera was also not activated.

Harrity told investigators that after the shooting, the officers got out of their vehicle and gave Damond immediate medical attention.

Harrity said that he and Noor saw a man, estimated to be between 18 and 25, bicycling in the area before the shooting. That man stopped and watched as officers attended to Damond. BCA agents are asking that man, and any other potential witnesses, to come forward.

The BCA said that unless more people come forward, there are no additional interviews scheduled.

David Klinger, a criminal justice professor at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, said police officers can't be compelled to testify in an outside investigation.

"Police officers are citizens ... they have the same Fifth Amendment right as anyone. They don't have to give a statement," Klinger said. "His lawyer might be saying, you're not going to talk until I feel you're rested and not under stress."

In a news conference after the BCA's update, Mayor Betsy Hodges said she wished Noor would speak to investigators.

"It's frustrating to have some of the picture but not all of it," she said. "We cannot compel Officer Noor to make a statement. I wish we could. I wish that he would make a statement."

Assistant Chief Medaria Arradondo said the department is reviewing its policy on body cameras and was doing so before Damond's death. Arradondo said the department is just eight months into a department-wide rollout, and the review includes focusing on how often officers activate them. He said the department wants to increase that frequency.

The city also said it planned to release a transcript of Damond's 911 call after it is shared with family members. Officials had initially declined to make it public.

The BCA said forensic testing is being completed and evidence is still being examined. When the investigation is done, the BCA will present all its findings to prosecutors for possible charges.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull gave an interview Wednesday to Australia's "Today" show, shortly before the release of details from the BCA's preliminary investigation, and joined the chorus demanding answers.

"How can a woman out in the street in her pajamas seeking assistance from police be shot like that? It is a shocking killing," Turnbull said.

In Damond's hometown of Sydney, about 300 people attended a silent vigil in her honor Wednesday morning at Freshwater Beach. Mourners threw pink flowers into the Pacific Ocean.

Records from the city's Office of Police Conduct Review show Noor has had three complaints against him. Two are pending, and the third was dismissed without discipline. Under state law, details of open cases and cases that result in no discipline are not released.

Noor was also sued earlier this year after a May 25 incident in which he and other officers took a woman to the hospital for an apparent mental health crisis. The lawsuit claims Noor and other officers violated the woman's rights when they entered her home without permission and Noor grabbed her wrist and upper arm. The lawsuit, which is pending, said Noor relaxed his grip when the woman said she had a previous shoulder injury.

Damond, who was planning to be married next month, was a meditation teacher and life coach. Her maiden name was Justine Ruszczyk, and though she was not yet married, she had already been using her fiance's last name.

The report I heard said she called 911 about an assault in the alley, they roll up without lights or sirens, she comes out of her house, scares the easily frightened negro, he shoots her through the door by shooting past his partner.
