US cop sentenced over shooting death of Australian woman - triggers Somalis, calling it attack on Muslim Immigrants


www.news.com.au...




Locals have slammed the jailing of a former US cop for killing an unarmed Australian woman, calling him a “victim of identity politics”.

Protesters have lashed out over the sentencing of killer cop Mohamed Noor, slamming the “racist” decision to jail him.

The drama occurred outside court as former US police officer Mohamed Noor, 33, was sentenced to 12 years and six months behind bars over killing of unarmed Australian woman Ruszczyk Damond, 40.

Protesters from the Somali-American community held placards, calling the ruling unjust and labelling the case “identity politics”.

According to the ABC, the large group of protesters called the sentence “an aberration of justice and an attack on Muslim immigrants”, although the crowd left quickly and peacefully.



Really?
12 1/2 years for murdering a women approaching him asking assistance and unarmed.

Her family got a life sentence!



On Friday, Judge Kathryn Quaintance sentenced him to 12 years and six months behind bars.

“The act may have been based on a miscalculation, but it was an intentional act,” Ms Quaintance said. “Good people sometimes do bad things.”

Gotta love his lawyers.

"Your honor, I know my defendant was found guilty by the jury, But I was wondering if you would maybe consider.......just dropping all charges and letting him go."

I mean, I guess if you don't ask you'll never know the answer.

Members of Minneapolis’ large Somali expat community protested the sentence outside court, claiming Noor was treated differently to white officers who shot minority members of the public.


Noor’s supporters held placards including “Black Muslim Immigrant Guilty” and “Noor: Victim of Identity Politics.”


Maybe so, if he was white maybe they would have covered it up and there'd be no justice at all.

If you're a privileged Somali who happens to identify as a follower of Muhammad you get a "free pass"?
Got it: I'll bear that in mind next time I run across someone wearing a hijab, or thawb.



You can't have it both ways

Another thing, just a random blurb.

That dudes lawyer creeps me out, weird looking fellow and his hat fetish(he seems to be wearing a different hat everytime I see him) is even stranger.

He looks like one of those guys from that show fringe.

You have to cool it with the all caps or triggering - we can have a civil discussion without the drama some of you showed in "that" thread.

Time to ? try ? to keep ATS classy?

But I get your disgust.

I have never been classy, never taken the high road, and never been nice when being an utter dick served a better purpose.

Oh yes, this was clearly a case of racism, not because he shot and killed a white woman...... nooooooo
and not because she was wearing her Pj's and not a burka...... noooooooo

he was arrested and convicted for his.......... beliefs!

Strange that that didn't prevent him from obtaining a career in the police force?

Go figure

In Noors defense, most cops are aware of crime stats and sadly that does effect their policing habits.

In minneapolis, when a middle aged blonde haired white woman in her nightgown approaches you, you are statistically very likely to be in life threatening danger.

Asking a right winger to have an emotion free civil discussion?

I would say when pigs fly. But cops have helicopters these days.

They were called the observers; maybe you're onto something.

A sign that they are part of the "gang" of insiders - didn't work with the female Judge, maybe if it the Judge was male?

Fair enough. Each to their own. Lots of back slapping for the first 2 pages of that thread.

This is what happens when you hire people to fill quotas rather than on merit and skill.

Ok its was a reported sexual assault - so the cop would have been on edge if approached by a man, not a scantily clad female who may have been the victim.



www.news.com.au...


Ms Damond, formerly of Sydney, had called police to report a possible sexual assault after hearing a woman scream behind her house. But when an unarmed Ms Damond — dressed in a pink T-shirt with koalas on it, pyjama pants, carrying a glittery gold iPhone — walked towards the patrol car barefoot and to meet police, Noor shot her in the abdomen at point blank range.

Yes agreed - finally a post that gets to the root of the problem.

When I last went in to get an updated photo for my MDL, there were those "public servants" that chose to dress down to the area they served, then there were the "tatts" in your face and the hijabs.
LOL I thought I had walked into flea market on a lazy long weekend.

I've always believed that what you wear to work reflects on your attitude or values and what you're trying to project to the people you interact with. But their co-workers can't do a damn thing, once they're employed.

I thought this was sounded familiar. ATS: This topic when it happened

At the time there were many questions over the "official" story about what happened. It might be good to good to go over the old thread on this to play catch-up on the situation.
