Mohammed Noor

The Minneapolis cop who shot an Australian woman dead outside her home has been identified as Mohammed Noor. The officer had only 2 years experience and is the first Somalian-born cop on the force.

Justine Ruszczyk, 40, was shot dead as she stood outside her home in her pajamas on Saturday night. Police say she called 911 to report a home intrusion or an assault.

Ruszczyk moved to the U.S. 2 years ago to marry her fiancé, Don Damond, 50. She used the name Justine Damond professionally.

Noor fired his service weapon through the driver’s side door of his patrol unit striking Damond as she stood outside the vehicle speaking to Noor and another officer.

Noor’s body cam was not turned on and the patrol unit’s dash cam did not capture the shooting.

The incident happened in a driveway next to the Damond home at about 11:30 pm on Saturday. She was wearing pajamas when she was killed.

Neighbors say they emerged from their homes to see emergency technicians performing CPR on Damond on the ground.

One neighbor said Damond often spoke about how safe her native Sydney, Australia was due to strict gun control laws.

In a press conference on Monday, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges promised the community she would keep the communication flowing.

Hodges said she is “heartsick and deeply disturbed” by the police-involved shooting. Outraged citizens demanded to know why neither officer at the scene had their body cams turned on.

Hundreds of people gathered outside the Damond home in the hours after the shooting. Mourners placed flowers, candles, letters, and teddy bears on the spot where she died.

One poster read: “Why did you shoot and kill our neighbor and friend?”




  • SG

    Did he think she was the suspect? Did he give commands that she paid no attention to? Many questions

  • imright

    wth ??? no statement from the cop ?? why did he shoot her ???

  • bella28498 .

    i have to see video footage she most likely had a weapon

  • Junkanoo

    Why join the force if your’e so afraid of the public you shoot first and ask questions later. Sorry to say but people need to think twice before calling the cops they’re legal assassins.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Hmmmm, roles reversed. Will damn sure be waiting to see how this plays out.

  • Fated4greatness

    Damn..he’s African. They are definitely going to prosecute him for killing a skinny, blond white lady

  • Fred G sanford

    I willing to bet diamonds to dog shyt his black azz going to that pennintary

  • starbright9449

    They’re gonna throw the book at him. If he had shot a black man it wouldn’t be a problem.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    THIS!!!

  • Ms. YaYa

    Yep!

  • Phillybruh

    They are going to charge him and throw the book at him.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    You know it. And he’ll get the max

  • Faux Gibbler

    That is the problem: trained to shoot and ask questions later.
    Why the hell is he shooting when a police officer was taking to her?

  • JerseyMom

    I don’t believe this story. Next!

  • Faux Gibbler

    “Noor fired his service weapon through the driver’s side door of his patrol unit striking Damond as she stood outside the vehicle speaking to Noor and another officer”

  • Tammie Reed

    I want to know what was she doing that he was so afraid of her that he shot her dead like that, so freaking sad!

  • Faux Gibbler

    Exactly.
    I mean being scared is one thing, you should always have your guard up and be alert, but damn, some cops are too damn skeered. We need level headed thinking Police.

  • mzwhang90210

    First of all–condolences to the victims and her family/loved ones. so tragic.

    That being said, I wonder if this cop will get paid desk duty while this incident is being investigated— like those other folks get?
    I wonder if someone will start a Go Fund Me acct to pay for his legal fees?
    I wonder if he’ll be found innocent of any improprieties?

    We shall see.

  • ?Royalty?

    He shot her through the door. This sounds like an execution to me. She probably saw something in that alley they did not want her to see.

  • mzwhang90210

    Str8!!!

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    if that was the case ….that would have been said 1st…..they are quick to blame everyone else!

  • Mia Said so

    YUP

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    and another officer was present…so why shoot? Yes so many questions!

  • BlahBlahBlah

    Truth

  • tintin

    I’ve been in my car and people wanna come up to the window knocking, that scares the hell out of me. Thank God i don’t have a weapon, who knows what i would do

  • Noirluv45

    I’m waiting for the public outrage to come pouring out! I’ll bet two things will happen: She will NOT be blamed for her demise (and I’m not saying she should be, but we know when this happens to Black people, the first thing they do is find a reason and reach back 99 years to our past to dug up some dirt) and that people will be sympathetic (and they should be towards ANYONE unjustly killed).

  • mzwhang90210

    Yt folks hollering about ‘Where are the Black Lives Matter” protesters now?!” —coming in
    5…4…3..2..

  • Moon Lee

    Another, stand your ground victim!Sad…

  • Junkanoo

    This woman called the police because she thought she heard an altercation in the alley and just look how this ended , with her dead .

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Hiiiiiiiiiii baby cakes!!!!!!!!! How are ya?

  • Post Nbn

    This is totally justifiable. He thought her cell phone was a gun and he feared for his life.

    Minneapolis or Indy? Let me go find the source story.

  • Jen_no_juice

    I have SO many questions…..
    Why do they keep reiterating she wad in her pjs? They couldn’t find her hoeing, on drugs, etc like they did others? What happened to have the cop not even get out but shoot thru the door? Will the officer get paid just like the others?

  • Ni Ni

    My condolences to her family. SN: If this had been a black person, them racist basterds over on yahoo would have saying all kinds of things like well she should’ve obeyed the officer, shouldn’t have moved until told, etc, but now cause it’s a white woman they saying the police are out of control.

  • Yall StayWoke

    If I told you once, I’ve told you twice!

    BLACK MEN ARE PURE EVIL. THEY ARE DEMONS IN THE HUMAN FORM.

    When calling for police assistance, kindly request anything but a Black Man! I have been away on vacay in Maldives but I wanted to come back to this beloved blog to render some knowledge to all the non believers on here. Some of you will not get your rude awakening until you are the next victim.

    Black men are officially universally unhinged. They are now attacking their white queens, a day I never thought would come. I am begging and pleading with ladies, especially my sistahs…please get away from Black men before it’s too late.

    As you can see its ALL Black men-not just Black American Men. Do what is necessary, move to another country, date other women, find a non Black man to help provide. Save your Souls Queens!

  • Str8tUpMenace

    *tears*

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Okay Minneapolis. Twin city to St. Paul. Where Philando lost his life. Another rookie officer that is just out in these streets shooting. Trigger happy mofos.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    R.I.P. to this lady.
    Sad situation, but I’m not crying too many tears for this situation. White America wont wake up to the issue of police brutality till they start seeing more of their own people being killed by cops.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    their white queens

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Their what now?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Obviously some black man hurt you real bad. I hope you heal up and recover fully.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Or just manage to die from all the hate in your heart. Which ever comes first.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Then again, she just may be a casualty of war. If they let him off Scott-free like they do the “others”, they’ll use this as an excuse to continue killing our men & women for no damn reason, and expect folks not to protest or riot. And will try to say, well a Black officer shot & killed an unarmed Blonde hair/blue eyed woman, and he didn’t go to jail, there was no “uprising”, no protests, etc……..Just a thought.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Can always count on some bored ignoramus to come in and say something stupid.

  • Keisha Hannah

    Minneapolis

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Would these people all be out there holding a vigil if it was a negro that got shot? I think not.

    I swear. Just pure stoopid.

  • SummerBaby

    I was just in Indianapolis over the weekend. RIP ??

  • Dowoop

    Now is the only time we will see an officer get jail time for killing someone.

  • Dowoop

    Except they pbly wont let him off.

  • Li

    Minneapolis = Somali. Look at his face features and his name, Somali. Stupid young.
    He should be fired. No body cam should mean gets fired.

  • Li

    Minnesota – they have a large Somali population and he looks Somali.

  • Li

    Yes. I have seen white people with black people for such killings.

  • Li

    This is happening more and more to white folks. The main issue is that she’s an Aussie and the Australian govt has been warning its people not to visit America. I think the anti-US anti-travel drums will beat louder now.

  • Li

    And – he didn’t have his body cam on…..stupid….deserves to be fired.

  • Li

    The people knocking on your door are thugs who intend to rob you. GUN YOUR ENGINE AND RUN.

  • Dowoop

    I like yours better…She/He/It needs to go lay down and die somewhere.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. Once these incidents start to affect tourism & negatively affect America’s image around the world, I guess that’s when attorney general Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump and company will *maybe* start to pay attention to this stuff.

  • You already know ?

    Exactly…they will give him 50 years ?But those racist Azz crackas,can kill innocent blacks and want get anytime @ all…???????

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Uh oh. Blonde becky and swarthy cop of African descent.
    He may be the first cop to be convicted of killing a civilian

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yes, I understand that. I’m just saying most white people who get upset about this white woman’s killing wouldn’t be too bothered if it was a black man.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    The cop who murdered Castile had been on the force for five years so he wasn’t a rookie.

  • Li

    This is going to be an international crisis. The PM of Aussie is on the phone to Trump RIGHT NOW!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Exactly!!!
    He will be an example.

  • KLo

    wonder if the black cop will get a free pass like his white Klansmen in the dept

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Hell to the no!!

  • Renee26

    While Indianapolis police ARE shooting and killing unarmed black men this happened in Minneapolis…a WHOLE different state. Edit your post please

  • Renee26

    Not in Indy…did you enjoy yourself? I went to the free concert and that’s about it

  • Dowoop

    No – the only time they say the victim had a weapon first is when the victim is black.

  • Renee26

    If that happens it will show that there’s a problem with the justice system….so we will just respond like they do “well if the courts found no fault then we need to leave it alone”

  • nekkkyj

    On Live PD a white cop was shown throwing a black man on the ground while holding his child i guess that didn’t make much headlines

  • Renee26

    LMAO….this was where I DIED

  • Renee26

    So I guess they’re putting this type of thing on TV now to further normalize it

  • chaisun

    Black AND Muslim, the white man has been waiting on such a scenario.

    Thanks for the correction.

  • BLRII

    How could the cop throw the guy on the ground if the cop was holding his child? And, sure, getting thrown on the ground is the EXACT equivalent of being shot to death. You need to stop letting your race hatred distort your thinking.

    That incident in no way compares with this killing.

  • BLRII

    You don’t know what percentage of white people would be upset, you’re just making a bitter guess that feeds your pleasure in your racism.

  • Post Nbn

    You mean the black man who fled from the police with his child in the car, flipped the car, got out trying to fight the cop while holding his child…..please tell the whole truth.

  • Renee Bee

    Can’t take you no where Whang! Show back in the garden just cutting up!

  • BLRII

    We don’t know what happened. If she didn’t obey the officer, etc., you can be sure whites will criticize her behavior. You really should try to resist your racism.

    Body cams are not in operation while police officers are inside their vehicle

  • Victorious82

    You forgot he used that baby as a human shield. I watched that as it unfolded and ole boy was dead wrong. Good thing his ass didn’t get shot with how he was reaching for the cops gun.

  • SummerBaby

    Yes, I had a good time. Thanks fir asking.

  • Ni Ni

    Sounds like I hurt your feelings ?.

  • Renee26

    Good to hear! Locals do the most complaining about the events….I always have a good time

  • Elevated Soul

    I guess this is supposed to be a big deal because for once, a white woman was shot and killed by the police.I will bet this “non white” will face charge.

    I wonder if the jurors will give this officer “the benefit of the doubt” as they do when judging white officers…..

  • Victor Nathan

    Mohammed…from Somalia…..that says it all

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So the racist cop-suckers will have to chose between supporting the African cop or the white blonde victim.

    Decisions, decisions.

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Condolences to her loved ones. I’m Maury type of 1,000% sure justice will be served this go round for its not the other way around.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    “What percentage of white people?” You sound silly. I don’t need to calculate a “percentage”.

    It’s an OPINION based on my own observations of white folks over the years. It’s my opinion that most white folks don’t get all that bothered over unarmed black folks getting killed by cops. (My opinion which I’m entitled to, by the way.)
    Now if my opinions bother you that much, you can always ignore them. Have a good day.

    I blocked this fool a while ago and logged in after I saw the assanine comment. Sandra should really ban THESE type of trolls. To say we should fear the black man when in reality the white man has destroyed EVERY culture known to man

    It could have been handled a different way

  • Jamal Warner

    A lot is going to change now since this white lady is killed. Yet, we still have to question whether black lives matter.

  • nekkkyj

    I glad the man and his child was ok you’re right the outcome was different the cop was white

    The officer responsible for killing Damond has since been identified as Mohammed Noor, the first Somali-American officer to join the Minneapolis Police Department’s 5th Precinct team, according to local CBS affiliate WCCO.
    ^^
    Bad time for the Somali citizens. Big big mistake.

  • Disqus_year4016

    You sound stupid. White women r not queens they cave women. There’s no escaping nothing because cops r killing blacks around the world especially in Brazil and London. So escape to what?

  • Disqus_year4016

    Right. Sandra should ban these dumb trolls who speak these kind of things. They be sounding stupid with no facts. But my half if my comments about the truth have to be aporoved but this cornball can say anything racist about black people thats not true.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    His act seems very deliberate, I know it happens all the time to black people (I still sympathize), this is really bad because he did it from their patrol car, and with backup.

    How he can justify this shooting is beyond me, but his defense attorney will. I believe he targeted this woman, and waited for an opportunity to exact his evil. No body cam, yeah, he’s going down!

    Whatever ‘they’ do to us has a way of coming back to ‘them’…whether it was us living through the horrific c r a c k era, New Jack City or Deep Cover or Jungle Fever, it was real and hard, but we survived.

    M E T H and H-RON has been swept under the rug (it’s an understandable crisis), but is ravishing their communities with the same numbers as our violence, and is greatly under-reported. Now you hear of more trigger happy, Major Payne kinda madness killings!

    What you do to others, you also do to yourself (eventually)!

  • AndSo

    It don’t matter that she was white or black. What matters is that she was killed and if this cop killed her for no good reason then he should go to jail. I don’t care if he’s black, white, purple, Mongolian or Aztec. Shame on some of the commenters who are practically gleeful that this woman was killed. Such hypocrisy in light of BLM.

  • PlayerP

    Unfortunately, for all the Black men and woman that have lost their lives to police people that were never charged or acquitted, it’s sad but true.

    Reminds me of when they shot the black guy who was in college. He was in a very bad car accident…made it out…and knocked on someone’s door for help. The white police pulled up and shot him on site with no questions asked. Or how about when they shot the 12 year black kid in Chicago? The caller CLEARLY said that the child was probably playing with a toy gun. The moral of the story is black people are killed like this every one hour in America. This white lady being shot by the police…..#noconcernofmine.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    I read somewhere that she startled him by being near his passenger side window. The bullet went thru the door and killed her. She called about some activity in alley. He didn’t expect to see her. Probably thought she was who they were looking for. If you call the police they usually tell you to stay inside until an officer knocks on your door.

    Native Americans are also shot and killed by the cops a lot also but it never goes national. The media ignored blacks being killed by cops for decades but a lot of people of all ethic groups are being killed mostly people of color and poor whites. The media can’t be trusted there’s always a bigger picture happening they rearly expose the whole truth.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Unfortunately these days that is usually the case when cops show up.

  • http://www.tiffanyinthecity.wordpress.com/ Tiffanyinthecity

    This might be the case to start setting some damn precedents. Took a white woman getting killed to see that some of these mfs are trained poorly and too scary to do their job properly.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Blue Lives will not in this case.

    The media is already painting her in a positive light, but if she were a black victim they would have published her rap sheet and if she didn’t have one they would have gone back to grade school and found out how many times she was tardy for school.

    He will probably be fired before he goes to trial–the union won’t fight too hard for him.

  • Noirluv45

    I think they already knew this. It’s not about training, but about assassinating. They know exactly what’s up!

  • sunni_daze

    This cop is going to be punished unlike his colleagues. He’s muslim and killed a white woman. The deck is not stacked in his favor, not to mention how the media is focusing on past complaints about him. Which they never do with a white cop.

  • sherri2016

    Its sad that he’s going to be the poster child for see we do prosecute cops who kill unarmed citizens because a black man killed there precious white women but our black mens lives mean nothing

  • KarmaBackAround

  • ?Royalty?

    So true. Had the victim been black we’d be hearing about how they were a thug, his or her momma and daddy were thugs and their cousin Leon, were completely unruly, had been written up at work, had unpaid parking tickets, displayed uncouth pictures on their Facebook and was gang affiliated somehow, used only the worse curse words in everyday conversation when speaking to children…..

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ex-fugging zactly.

    I said the same thing in a previous post.

    Remember when the local paper in Cleveland published Tamir Rice’s parents’ rap sheets after the goofy cop murdered him?

    They only did that to devalue his life by basically implying that he would have grown up to become a criminal like his parents.

  • classycns

    You should Google your facts before posting a comment. Your information is incorrect, or was that your intent?

  • Tamara Artis-Dawkins

    Correct facts of case below. We got one but too many get away with murder.

    The Detroit-area homeowner who shot in the head 19-year-old Renisha McBride was found guilty of murder. The jury found him guilty on all three charges?—?second-degree murder, manslaughter, and felony firearm?—?on its second day of deliberations.
    McBride was shot dead in the early hours of November 2 outside 54-year-old Theodore Wafer’s Dearborn Heights, Michigan, home. McBride’s family and police believe McBride was in a car accident, and knocked on Wafer’s door for help after her cell phone died. But Wafer claimed during trial that he shot McBride in self-defense, after initially telling police he discharged the gun by accident.

    BUt instead they are dragging the cop for the first time ever and we know why. Look how fast they released his name and other info. That has never happened in the case with a black person.

  • Aletha Davis

    ok lets have the trial and declare him innocent, give him his pension and never mention this again, like all the rest

  • Rahab

    Racists individuals making US victims and then placing blame on the whole race is what keeps you down. Me and mine continue to shine.

  • AndSo

    Who, exactly, is “me and mine”? Like I said, I was not born in this country, but I am black and I was raised here. So WHO are you referring to?

  • Wayup!

    ???.. RITE
    . BUT ER AH.. THIS ONE LIKE THE OTHER 2 BLACK COPS GETTING NOTHING SHORT OF THE DEATH PENALTY..?

  • Queen B

    Wtf this is ridiculous why in the hell did he shoot her please answer that question smh this is truly sad and where was the husband

  • Rahab

    Not you or anyone else that puts the state of the entire race on one man (MLK) or group (BLM).

  • AndSo

    People like you shouldn’t even reference MLK. While you stand for pretty much everything that he did not (read: you’re a hateful racist, straight-up), he would most definitely have taken the higher ground and tried to reach out to you and love you. That’s why he’s someone people of ALL nations and colors look up to.

    You no better than a klansman yourself.

  • ?Royalty?

    True.
    Tamir. It breaks my heart every time I read/hear his name.

  • gail fowler

    Yes, lets see how this plays out because they sure were quit to put up his picture and name etc African Black. The media drives the train because when a white cop shots to kill it takes a protest to find out the name….

  • Rahab

    I feel the same way towards you and your initial reference, hence my response. You are on the outside looking in while judging the masses. Have a nice day!!!

  • AndSo

    I’m a black woman living in the United States, so how am I on the outside looking in while judging the masses? You don’t even make any sense. Why is it that you feel entitled to be cheering up this woman’s death and I don’t? Would MLK have been gleeful? Doubt it. MLK would want black people in this country to RISE ABOVE and be empathetic regarding this woman’s death. Show solitude. Show that we, as citizens, are UNIFIED against police brutality no matter the race.

    You are a ignorant shameful person. I’m ashamed that you are black. Put your head down on MLK day. You don’t care one damn bit about what he was about.

  • Rahab

    You are reaching and proves the point your initial comment has troll logic. Glad you are black and born outside of the US. Aren’t you special. Never not once celebrated or commented on the police shooting. Argue amongst yourself.

  • AndSo

    “Let US worry about BLM. Tell me how KKK feels about the current racial climate in the Racist States of America.”

    YOU in your willfull ignorance (something you likely specialize in) clearly insinuated that I was not a black person. Any fool with basic reading comprehension skills can see that. That I, as a non-black person, would have knowledge of the opinion of the KKK. That I, as a non-black person, should leave BLM to “us” (<– clearly black people like you as opposed to me).

    You were wrong: I am black. I corrected you. Your "me and mine" bs is garbage. It ain't no troll logic. And I am so very thankful that I was born outside the U.S. to EDUCATED black parents who raised me to be educated as well. To look up to people like MLK and LIVE out his message. There wasn't no "me and mine" in his logic. It was "us" (as in inclusion of ALL races). Black folks like you only focus on the negative so you can continue to see yourselves as victims who are entitled to be racists. All the while screaming that others are racist against you! Pathetic.

  • 1shy112

    What could she possibly have done to make him touch his weapon…. let alone grab it and shoot her… smh ??

  • Rahab

    Yes, you fail at comprehension. Name calling does not help you make your point. I could care less about your skin color. You can say you are anything you want to be. Happy as well you were born elsewhere and on the outside looking in as I stated before. You only know of MLK?

  • AndSo

    How do I fail at comprehension exactly? I didn’t fail at anything. Own your garbage at the very least. You said it! Then again, that would require some accountability – another thing that you likely don’t get around to doing since you’re too busy believing the you are being victimized. Am I now victimizing you too? SMH

  • Rahab

    This is where only you mention victimization. Failure to comprehend.

  • Rahab

    Responded that I was not referring to you as US or me and mine, failure to comprehend.

  • Rahab

    Your rhetoric screams delusional internet troll. Those that visit urban blogs to create a stir. Jump into the 21st century and stop playing on people’s emotions with reference to MLK. If others found joy in the latest death by police, address them directly. Why do we have to constantly take the high ground and continue to end up six feet under.

  • Rahab

    You sure do know a lot about how racists operate.

  • Rahab

    If your stupid ass is black and can’t comprehend your inclusion in US, educated parent fail.

  • Rahab

    I agreed with your dumb educated ass here and you failed to comprehend. Qualifying you again as an internet troll pretending to be a socially conscious individual.

    Have you ever met any women from Australia? Very lippy! LOL

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Have you seen the movie, Captain Phillips? LMAO! Seriously, the more I think about about it, I am bit of a xenophobe.

  • AndSo

    You GOT to be jok’n! Hahaha. You’re typical. Straight up typical. Shame.

  • Rahab

    It is NOT a joke when it comes to your lack of understanding on that high horse you are perched upon.

  • AndSo

    I’m married with a child, a graduate degree and a career. My parents were poor immigrants when they came to this country. BLACK immigrants. I wouldn’t have gotten what I have if I didn’t understand PLENTY. You fool’n yourself. It ain’t no high horse. It’s reality. Your reality is obviously different from mine, and I think that I know why that is.

    Sick of people like you. Sick of y’all.

  • AndSo

    I’m no troll, actually. But I guess that’s the card you pull when you don’t like what you’re reading. I reference MLK b/c it is very relevant here. Just LOOK at the nasty comments on this posting. No one feel sorry for her because she’s white! “Us” and “them” mentality. Disgusting.

  • AndSo

    You weren’t agreeing with me by insinuating that I don’t know. Maybe you ought to rethink your communications skills? How about you put that in your pipe and smoke it.

  • AndSo

    Failure to write…right.

  • Rahab

    Ride away on your high horse with them. Do you think you are the only “black” immigrant who is married, with a child, graduate degree and career? News flash, many of US, who are descendents of slaves have that and much more. Me and mine have achieved far more in spite of what THEY have put US through. You don’t comprehend this difference in spite of your claim to understand PLENTY. You have been fooled and at then end of the day, THEY could care less of your immigrant status.

  • AndSo

    You think that my parents weren’t descendants of slavery as well? Slavery and poverty? There’s your ignorance shining through right there! You’re whining, “woe-is-me” rhetoric is ridiculous. And old! I’m not fooled. I’m just not harping endlessly on something that cannot be changed. I wasn’t a slave. You weren’t a slave either! Nor were your parents or my parents. So, you know what? My parents and I made better lives for ourselves using what was available and, amazingly, it worked. Why? ‘Cause we stayed out of trouble, worked hard, and didn’t buy into
    the “victim” mentality that YOU and yours obviously suffer from. If things were so RACIST then that wouldn’t have happened. I wouldn’t be living in a nice house or have gotten scholarships to universities. I wouldn’t have a great job. Obama never would have been president either. Obviously, it is possible to achieve here, but you whine. You ain’t no victim. You ain’t no slave. You’re the one who’s been fooled, my friend. Now get to work taking responsibility for yourself.

  • Ridajean

    This will be interesting because all other cops were indicted, but acquitted. I will be totally shocked if the same happens to him. If it does, this will have another ‘O.J free reaction’.

  • McKay

    I have not. Lol

  • Whiteguy

    Pants up don’t loot.
