MINNEAPOLIS POLICE SHOOTING, ANOTHER AFFIRMATIVE ACTION FAILURE?

Three Abuse Complaints, a Lawsuit & a Killing in Just 21 Months on the Job

MINNEAPOLIS POLICE SHOOTING,

ANOTHER AFFIRMATIVE ACTION FAILURE?

OFFICER NOOR REFUSES TO TALK, WAS HE AFRAID FOR HIS LIFE?

The tragedy in Minneapolis is hard to wrap your head around.  A 40-year-old Australian woman was shot & killed by a police officer shortly after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley near her home.

Justine Ruszczyk was in her PJs Saturday night around midnight when she approached the driver’s side of the squad car.  We don’t know EXACTLY why Officer Mohamed Noor shot Justine because there are no video recordings and he refuses to talk.  We do know that Justine died on scene of a single gunshot to the abdomen.

Despite wearing a bullet-proof vest and despite police department rules against firing a weapon while sitting in the patrol car, Officer Noor was apparently so afraid of this petite, unarmed woman that he shot her.

MINNEAPOLIS AREA HAS LARGE SOMALI REFUGEE COMMUNITY

Minneapolis, MN has a huge Somali immigrant population, the largest in the U.S.  Most are Sunni Muslims.  An estimated 70,000 Somalis live in & around the Twin Cities Metro Area.  Virtually all immigrants arrived in Minnesota as refugees following 9.11.01.

In recent years, roaming Somali gangs have terrorized neighborhoods in and around Minneapolis, threatening non-Somali residents. Moreover, Somali youth are being disproportionately recruited by ISIS and other Islamic Terrorists.

MAYOR AND POLICE DEPARTMENT WERE THRILLED TO HIRE MR. NOOR

This writer imagines that the City of Minneapolis bureaucrats were falling all over themselves with excitement when Mr. Noor applied to become a police officer.  Not only would Mr. Noor fill TWO Affirmative Action slots (that is, non-white & immigrant), but he might become an effective liaison to the Somali community.

“I want to take a moment to recognize Officer Mohamed Noor, the newest Somali officer in the Minneapolis Police Department,” Mayor Betsy Hodges wrote in a Facebook post last year. “Officer Noor has been assigned to the 5th Precinct, where his arrival has been highly celebrated, particularly by the Somali community in and around Karmel Mall.”

Hundreds of people attended a Police Department-organized meet-and-greet to introduce Officer Noor to the Somali community in May 2016.

OFFICER MOHAMED NOOR’S BACKGROUND

Mohamed Noor immigrated to the U.S. from Somali as a child.  Currently age 31, Officer Noor has a degree in business administration and worked in property management prior to joining the police department in March 2015.

He completed his field training in 2016, becoming the first Somali-American assigned to the Fifth Precinct, which covers SW Minneapolis.  Department records indicate he had three complaints filed against him, the details of which are not public.

One complaint was closed without any disciplinary action and two are still open.  In addition, he is being sued by a woman who claims he “abused” her during an arrest.

WAS OFFICER NOOR HIRED OVER A MORE QUALIFIED APPLICANT?

Let’s face it, regardless of one’s attitude about Affirmative Action in the workforce, we know certain “protected” individuals are hired over “non-protected” individuals because he/she is the “correct” race or gender.  One wonders where abilities, temperament, skills, experience & education factor into the hiring process.

In hiring Noor, did the police department make race & immigrant status the MAIN reason for hiring him?  Or was he the perfect candidate who just HAPPENED TO BE a Somali immigrant?  Where did temperament and abilities enter into the hiring process?  After all, in hiring a policeman, not only is the government giving this man a gun, but it is giving him SIGNIFICANT authority over citizens.

IS JUSTINE, BRIDE-TO-BE, THE LATEST VICTIM OF PUTTING

RACE AND IMMIGRANT STATUS BEFORE ALL ELSE?

I am a proud American who is tired of biting my tongue for fear of making a Liberal mad; for fear of being called racist because I believe in the Rule of Law; for fear of damaging my license to practice law. NO MORE!!!! Conservative minded citizens have stayed silent for decades while Liberals have caused significant damage to American culture and to our nation. I lived in a Third-World Dictatorship. Generation after generation had been trained to kow tow to the government. They were afraid to discuss ANYTHING about the government even in the privacy of their own homes. My "Time" magazine arrived with articles cut out, after the censors got through checking it for heresy. With Political Correctness and "hate speech" rules, we are already halfway to officially losing our precious Freedom of Speech. If we want anything of value to remain for future generations we need to act now, rally in the streets now, speak out now. Don't be cowed.

  1. “Falling all over themselves” to hire this obviously unqualified guy. No doubt! So many questions and nothing makes sense

    • Joanna, Thank you for reading my article. Most of us do not have the temperament to be a successful police officer. I certainly don’t because I have a VERY low tolerance for poppycock & lies. No patience. Something tells me this officer did not have the courage to be a policeman. He was frightened too easily. I am an eclectic writer.

      • How do you know he was frightened. He hasn’t spoken to anyone. Why so much speculation in reporting these day. You wrote it as a fact.

        • Donna: The other officer in the patrol car IS talking to authorities. He said that they heard a loud noise near the car just seconds before Justine appeared out of the dark at the passenger door. There was no light because the officers had turned off their headlights. I am using my common sense here. If Noor was not frightened, why did he fire? Thank you for reading my article. Diane

  2. I can’t help but wonder if the fact that she was female, white, or only wearing her pajamas fits in to the narrative. There are cases of women being stoned to death for indecent exposure in many Muslim countries; That is, showing shoulders, neck or ankles. Maybe he thought he was doing his job as a Muslim in ending her scandalous behavior? Maybe that’s why he’s not talking? Maybe I’m just speculating. Hope we find out, but I doubt he’ll be punished at all.

    • Rumple: I understand you point, but Noor was raised in the U.S. Brought here at age 7. That said, Muslims and Christians living in the same country is like oil and water. They just don’t mix. Moreover, the Quran teaches Muslims to hate non-believers & to hurt them. The bible teaches Christians to love EVERYONE. Thank you for reading my article. I am an eclectic writer.

  3. Poor training or rushed training, and a lack of psychological evaluations are the reasons for this shooting. We as a society cannot lower our standards to accommodate less than qualified people. It is the individual’s challenge to raise their own standards to match those of society. The American Dream isn’t a participation trophy; you must earn it and that takes sacrifice and discipline.

    • Mark: Well put! I have had a relative who was a Portland (OR) police officer, and I have had many police as clients. THE PSYCHOLOGICAL EXAM IS ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL!!!! If there is no PC agenda, this test is the last straw! In other words, the psychological test must yield very high marks. So-so marks kills your chances of being hired as police officer. I speculate that Minneapolis desire to have a Muslim officer was the MOST important criteria for Noor being hired. It SHOULD HAVE BEEN the least important criteria. Thank you for reading my article.
