Trigger-happy cop complains that he was 'thrown under the bus' by fellow officers

 

Justine Damond Mohamed Noor

The Minneapolis cop who shot and killed a woman after she called 911 to report a possible rape says she startled him when she rushed toward his patrol car.

Mohamed Noor, 31, told a friend he was "startled" by Justine Damond as she rushed toward him in the dark and he didn't realize she was the 911 caller when he shot her.

Noor was on the passenger side of the police cruiser when he reached across his partner, Matthew Harrity, and fired multiple times through the open driver's side window, striking Damond.

Harrity, who suffered hearing loss from the gunshots, lowered his window to speak to Damond before his partner gunned her down. A police source said Harrity did not view Damond as a threat.

The 40-year-old yoga instructor was pronounced dead at 11:51 pm from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen.

The incident happened late Saturday night in an alleyway about a block from Damond's upscale home.

In audio of the 911 call, Damond reported hearing sounds of a woman having sex or being raped behind her home on Washburn Avenue South.

"It's been going on for a while… I think she just yelled out 'help; I don’t think she's enjoying it," Damond told the dispatcher.

Officers Noor and Harrity arrived minutes later and proceeded slowly down the dark alleyway across the street from Damond's home.

The Australian native left her house and walked to the end of the alleyway to meet the officers.

Noor said Damond ran towards the police cruiser after he heard "a loud bang," and he couldn't tell what the pajama-wearing blonde was holding in her hand, so he opened fire.

Damond's cell phone was found nearby. Neither officer turned on their body cams, in violation of department policy. Noor, in particular, didn't activate his body cam even though his gun was in his lap -- another violation of protocol.

A police source confirmed officers are required to switch on their body cams when responding to a 911 call about a sex assault, or if they are "in search" and anticipate use of force.

Both officers are suspended with pay while the investigation is ongoing.

Noor still refuses to speak with state investigators, but he revealed details of the shooting to a friend in the Minneapolis Somali community.

He complained that he was "thrown under the bus" by colleagues in the 5th precinct and he feels isolated because he is a Muslim immigrant and not white, the friend told UK's Daily Mail tabloid.

"He is aware that [police] normally come together at times like this and support each other with slogans like 'Blue Lives Matter'," the friend said.

The friend said Noor and his family are shocked at the online abuse he's receiving, with some users saying Damond would not have been shot if she was wearing a burka or hijab.

In his 2 years on the police force Noor racked up three complaints and a lawsuit -- all by women. One complaint was marked closed, while two cases remain open.

He was hired as the 5th precinct's first Somali Muslim cop in March 2015, despite failing a police exam 4 times.

    If he failed the test 4 times, his ass should NOT be a cop. IDGAF what race or gender or religious background he has.

  • Jay

    Lets see if he is going to get off. Probably wont but we will see.

  • Jen_no_juice

    He complained that he was “thrown under the bus” 
    ---------------
    He really surprised?! He shot a white woman (foreign or not) not an African American. Hell I'm shocked he got paid leave. Speaking of ...I don't understand that. At any other job if you get suspended its not paid. If they stop giving these cops vacation when they kill someone maybe that would have them rethink at least shooting to kill

  • Renee26

    If blue lives really matter...stop blue on blue backstabbing and under the bus throwing and then I will believe blue lives matter

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Despite the color creed .... this shyt is happening .... tables have turned.... I would not want to be a cop...to use authority as a weapon to kill... Man listen ....

  • Jen_no_juice

    They're probably prepping the woman who filed the other complaints to speak out about his character

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Told ya' so! I knew this would be his excuse for murdering her, but this is not what really happened. He shot her because she said something that ticked him off.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Agreed. Clearly he wasn't right for the job

  • Renee26

    Maybe not....because the officers who are on unpaid leave who are acquitted for killing unarmed men have been getting all of their back pay

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    You want a murderer with a badge to go free of charges?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Affirmative action?

  • Yardgirl

    White cops have gotten off using similar defense so let's see what happens to a black cop. IDGAF I don't trust any cop regardless of race.

  • Renee26

    Same

  • Jen_no_juice

    But they are paid until charged. Once charged the payment stop but yes they do get their back pay once they're acquitted. Just think if you take their money maybe they'd act like the trained professionals they're supposed to be

  • Renee26

    This is 2017 I'm sure he wasn't the ONLY minority on their force. If they chose him because he was the only Somali applicant then that's different. They have a large Somali community there so it would make sense for them to have one on the force to identify and relate to them. Much like bilingual officers who are sought out for other minority races.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    There were three, possibly four, witnesses to this shooting. One of them is dead and cannot tell her side of the story. The two remaining players are on the same team. As the a family member of many law enforcement officials, I know how this went down. First, they got the truth. Then, they spun a story that would do the least damage to the department and the mayor.

  • Yardgirl

    ??

  • ?Royalty?

    Plot twist. The cop who answered her call was the reported "rapist" and he shot her because he was afraid she saw something - HIM.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    If you hire an applicant for any other reason than their qualifications, you're doing the job a grave disservice.

  • Renee26

    True but affirmative action it's not

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Hmm... I like the way you think. My assumption was he shot her because of something she said. Maybe he shot her to keep her from talking, but what about the alleged victim? Where is the woman who was screaming?

  • Coy little wink

    If it was an accident what is there to hide

  • Renee26

    I think the only thing that will discourage them from being trigger happy and abusing their power is them actually being charged, tried and sentenced just like the average Joe. If they were sent to prison and held accountable for killing unarmed people that would deter them...until that happens corrupt officers will still do what they do on a regular basis.

  • Guess Who

    He's an alleged muslim and by American standards, a black man who killed a white woman. Oh they'll probably make an example out of him.

    BTW, white folks are very outraged by this. On a new board I go to, I gave the exact same responses when black folks have been killed by white folks and they were so appalled calling me heartless.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Makings of a great book!

  • Shira Harding-James

    Why so?

  • Renee26

    He really needs to stop talking to people because he's only going to dig a deeper hole for himself. If he's indicted and found guilty it could set precedent for other police officers who kill unarmed civilians to also be found guilty...the justice system will look at this as a slippery slope....do they want to prosecute THIS officer and open up the flood gates for the "good old boys" who do this and use those excuses to also be prosecuted in the future or will they also let him get away with murder...DUN DUH DUN...to be continued on the next episode of Is there Justice in Amerikkka. Stay Tuned!

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    In all fairness, I must disclose that no one has benefited from affirmative action more than white women. As a mixed man who appears white, I am also aware of white privilege. However, I also know that police departments face enormous amounts of pressure to hire minorities. In order to fill those quotas, they often hire substandard applicants. I don't know about you, but I want an idiot running around with a gun, simply because he looks like me or speaks my language.

  • Renee26

    Go Figure

  • free

    that's what i'm trying to figure out, except i think it was just two people f*cking. the victim said she couldn't determine whether it was forced or not. probably a prostitute and john since it was in an alley. they obviously don't want to come forward.

    Ha!! I'd be doing that too. Light them up. Tell them #BlueLivesMatter

  • i troll it like i see it

    So his partner felt safe enough to open the window to speak, yet he freaked out and pulled his weapon on the woman? He's got issues.

  • A Jin

    Little by little they are breaking down the way we view people. The stereotypes that have been written in stone will be no more in the future. No one is safe. White people, you all are in danger as well. More to come.

  • abby500

    If the victims are black, they will not be found guilty. Recent history shows this.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Too late. He's locked himself into a story. An unbelievable narrative that will be ripped to shreads. His days as a cop are numbered. He will be sued civily and financially ruined.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I want to hear the 911 call.

  • Renee26

    I agree he shouldn't have been allowed on the force if he wasn't qualified to be on it....they said he failed but haven't disclosed what portions of the tests he failed, for all we know it could have been the physical training part or some math problem...IJS others who have failed the mental/psych evals have not been allowed in the position so I can't assume that it was his mental capacity that was ignored just to put a Somali on the force.

    I also would like to know what the other complaints that are still active were about....the media wants to sway public opinion so they will only give little information. Muslim has complaints made by women...hmmm some Muslim cultures are stereotyped for oppressing women GUILTY. He failed the exam 4 times....hmmm it must have been the mental/psych portion because who in their right mind would shoot an unarmed white woman GUILTY.

    I'm not supporting this officers actions nor him as a person because I don't know him. I'm just speaking in general of how this case is being handled and how the media is treating THIS instance of an officer shooting very differently then they have all the others that have happened.

  • Guest

    His partner already distancing himself and throwing him under the bus. Not surprised.

  • StoneColdLady

    His narrative of what happened is not even plausible. How was he startled and the woman is on the opposite side of the vehicle speaking with his partner

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Now this defense is 100 % effective for non minority officers but lets see how this plays out for a minority but I must admit that he is so doing down for this !!

  • chaisun

    Should we start a gofundme in support of this black mas as the whites do for theirs?

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I dated a Muslim for nearly six years. His views on women, were atrocious. He spoke to his mother with venomous disrespect. Most of the Muslim men that I know, treat women, including their own female family members, like dogs. A few weeks ago, I overheard a Muslim colleague talking about physically attacking his adult daughter because she disagreed with something he said. Some stereotypes are rooted in ugly thuths.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    When you hire somebody who failed the police exam 4 times, this is the kind of thing that happens.
    The city will get sued for this, and will have to pay out millions of taxpayer dollars for one man's stupid mistake. Sad.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    His partner didnt turn on his body-cam or the police car dashcam. That's enough reason for him to get fired himself. They should both lose their jobs, just to start.

  • RespectSelf

    This is really sad... for all parties involved.... This also shows that we are not getting past race any time soon smh. It seems like these cops need way more training than they are getting. Secondly, they are basically saying that they will support white cops when they get trigger happy, but not their black cops... smh

    "When you hire somebody who failed the police exam 4 times, this is the kind of thing that happens."
    -----
    Commenter Ryan said as much yesterday, but the police exam is pretty difficult. It seems to vary based on state, but in El Paso, Texas, for example, 62% of applicants in 2005 failed their exam according to policetestguide.com. Also, why don't know why he failed those tests. Maybe he failed the physical exam a couple times?

    Still, failing four times sounds really bad, but I think the real problem is how officers are allowed to engage citizens with deadly weapons. Do like they do in Europe and give these people some batons or something -- maybe bean bag shooters unless it's PROVEN that deadly force is necessary and not just a precaution.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Frankly, I believe cops should be required to have a college degree; preferably with a concentration in psychology, mathematics or science. We need cops who are intelligent problem-solvers. Regardless, none of that matters if the cop is prejudice against a particular group or has a fragile ego.

  • indano

    He does not identify with black Americans. Being that he's an Solmali Immigrant he's well represented and funded by special interest groups.

  • freelancepimp .

    Bot that don't work for black people and of course they threw you under the bus. I bet he also thought his NRA membership would get him some support too.

    White people don't even have to like each other. I have seen this time & time again on my job. But they will stick together. Its no different then what there doing to our black men. I pray for him they going to make him pay for his mistake.

  • indano

    Damond call 911 about a possible rape. Noor is spooked by a woman running toward the patrol car. Did he not think the woman could have been the possible rape victim.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Trigger happy mofo is gonna learn today!!! Blue Lives Matter has nothing to do with him... He probably couldn't wait to shoot someone. Now he wants to hide behind being Muslim... Obviously he doesn't know how this country works -- maybe in Somalia you can shoot a woman and no one blinks an eye but you shoot a white woman, in cold blood, in this country you are gonna spend the rest of your life in the pokey...

  • Overpower Radio

    Waoh. I'm surprised to see so many comments talking bout give him pension, this that and the next. If he was white and she was Black and got she got killed rushing to tell police of a possible rape situation we'd all be in an uproar. Because the shoe's on the other foot this time, and their are obvious procedures that have taken place that don't ever seem to take place when its one of ours on the ground - is no exuse for US to lose sight of innocence. The saddest part of this is an innocent women dying trying to help someone she thought was being sexually abused.

    Next: is all the other stuff. But why aren't we as critical of this cops trigger finger as we "normally" are. Allowing that "Blue Lives Matter" bullshit to come into play at a time like this isn't in OUR favor.

    The woman has a son, who's distraught that he lost his mother at the hands of police and his feelings are, "this has to stop." He wasnt thinking about his mom being white matched with other Black victims, nor was he concerned with the color of the officer. He's tired of innocent citizens dying at the hands of police.

    When I overheard his conversation with his mother, it was toward the end of our relationship. He was being really rude to someone on the phone and I asked him who he was talking to. When I learned he was speaking to his mother, I made him call her back and apologize. Ultimately, we broke up because he was cheating. After I moved on, he started sleeping in his car outside my house. One night, he stood outside my door crying; which was completely uncharacteristic of his behavior.

    Despite his jacked up views on women, he was very good to me. Very loving, very patient, concerned about my mortal soul. LOL

    He was different from any other man I've been with. We actually met over the phone. We spoke for several months before me met. We never talked about sex. At one point, I was worried he might be unattractive because I had never met a handsome man who was interested in me and didn't try to sway the conversation toward sex.

    On our first date, he brought his family photo albums. He reminded me of a young John Travolta: thick dark hair and greenish blue eyes. When my aunt saw him, she went on and on about how "fine" he was.

    Despite his good looks, he was shy but very protective of me. He told me he wanted me to convert to his religion because he wanted us to be together in the afterlife, too.

    I used to wonder about that too. According to a friend who used to live in Afghanistan and Iraq, homosexuality is pretty common among Muslim men. Flaunting it publicly is the issue. My ex wouldn't go to gay clubs or hang out with other homosexuals. However, he made it his business to drop me off and pick me up. I think he was trying to protect his investment.

    My deepest condolences to Justine's family and friends. To the Somalis who "support" Noor, I offer this advice. Don't support incompetence, poor training, and down right stupidity. This was bound to happen, a scary black cop shoots white woman. Whites and blacks still disagree about OJ but I don't know any whites, including those that date or marry blacks, that think OJ didn't kill Nicole. Justine's family will hopefully find peace that she gave her life to effect a change in this country that has been resisted far too long. I pray that localities every where stop giving cops a pass when they say "I feared for my life" when it was their own poor tactics that placed them in a position they believed deadly force had to be used. An alley is a place where you need to walk to find a possible crime not riding in a vehicle with your gun on your lap. If Noor was so scared of the call he was investigating he had to know he should had activated his camera and instructed the junior officer to do so as well. 2nd, they should had walked the alley as they would have heard more that creeping along in a car with open windows. Like the shooting of Tamir Rice in Cleveland, these officers, especially Noor used extremely poor tactics. The officers in Cleveland would never admit they had biases towards black men. This bias caused them to use poor tactics in approaching Rice, they felt any black man they approached was a threat, even through Rice was 12 years old. Noor won't have the option white officers use, the area was high crime, the area was known as a gang turf, the person shot looked like a person on a wanted person poster they saw 6 months ago, the unarmed person fought armed officers for no reason, and all the other crazy lying stuff they say when shooting people who should not be shot. Investigators are quick to point out how many times the victim had been jailed, and it any drugs was in their system. Blaming the victim is a true and tied method of LE when a white cop shoots anyone when he/she didn't have too. This victim is blameless and Noor won't have the police giving him the benefit of the doubt as he should had know this was a white area and he should had slowed things down instead of treating Justine like she was an enemy. Noor shouldn't be an officer anymore, and he should do the right thing and take a plea for voluntary manslaughter, but he won't.
