The investigators had to get a warrant for the training records. The police did not turn them over. The investigators should have turned over to them training records, complete service record, all complaints, all internal evaluations, audio of 911 call, police radio traffic, officers phones..
Minnesota state investigators have obtained the training records of the Minneapolis police officers involved in the fatal shooting of an Australian woman who had called 911.
The Star Tribune reports that the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension issued a search warrant for the training records of Officers Mohamed Noor and Matthew Harrity.
Agent Brent Petersen wrote in his warrant application that the records will supplement the evidence obtained thus far. He received the records Friday.
The BCA says records confirmed that both officers “completed state mandated training in order to maintain an active peace officer license,” CBS Minnesota reports. CBSNews
Fishing expedition to make Justine look bad that will help them cover this up?
Noor is on paid leave.
It’s been 11 days since Mohamed Noor shot and killed Justine Damond, and he still hasn’t explained why he did it. Now we have another question the Minneapolis Police Department needs to answer.
Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigators were granted permission to search Justine Damond’s home hours after she was shot and killed by a Minneapolis police officer, according to court records…
“I don’t understand why they’re looking for bodily fluids inside her home,” said Joseph Daly, an emeritus professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law, referring to one of two recently-released search warrant applications.
“Whose bodily fluids are they looking for? Is she a suspect? I don’t understand why they’re looking for controlled substances inside her home. I don’t understand why they’re looking for writings inside her home. The warrant does not explain that to me.”
A cynical mind might assume that the police, having just killed an unarmed, pajama-clad woman right outside her home after she called 911 to report a possible rape, were searching her house to find something they could use to claim it was justified. Presumably they didn’t find anything, or we would’ve heard about it by now. DailyCaller
Trying to implicate and smear an innocent woman to make Noor an affirmative action diversity fast tracked cadet the victim? Hope that eventually this shooting will vanish from the news and then officer Noor can get a disability pension for emotional trauma. It also saves the whole practice of affirmative action.
There are nearly 2 billion Muslims in the world, amounting to a quarter of the world’s population, controlling 50 countries. The English-speaking world is about a fifth that size and constitutes a dwindling majority in about a half-dozen countries. But, somehow, no matter how the story is written, Muslims always get to play the victim, and Anglo-Saxons are cast as the aggressors.
That’s why a Somali cop’s fatal shooting of a pajama-clad Good Samaritan has gone directly into the “Be Nice to Muslims!” file, rather than the “Why Are All These Somalis Here?” file. (Answer: Because of an earlier mistake with excessive Scandinavian immigration.)
I can’t help noticing that it was precisely the “Be Nice to Muslims!” dictate that put this Somali nincompoop on the police force in the first place.
Among Noor’s evident errors the night he killed Justine:
1) Shooting from the passenger seat, the bullet whizzing inches past his partner’s face, through the driver’s side window;
2) Not turning his bodycam on when responding to a 911 call;
3) Shooting to kill because he heard a loud noise;
4) Believing that white women in America pose a threat to a policeman.
A few of the Weather Underground ladies were accomplices to cop-killings, 40 years ago, but even they weren’t lone white women cop-killers.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, women of any race committed about 10 percent of all murders from 1980 to 2008, and black people committed a majority of all murders. Other than a small child, it’s difficult to think of a demographic that poses less of a threat to a policeman in America than a 40-year-old white woman.
Noor’s African-American neighbor, Chris Miller, said he was shocked when he heard about Damond’s shooting — until he found out it was Noor. Miller told The Daily Telegraph (Australia) that his Somali neighbor was quick to anger and was always going off on women and children. “He is extremely nervous,” Miller said, “a little jumpy … he doesn’t really respect women, the least thing you say to him can set him off.”
Sounds perfect for a police officer!
May we see Officer Noor’s cadet exam? His training reports? Does anyone believe there is the slightest possibility that Noor was not rushed through the Police Academy so that the nice people of Minneapolis could feel good about themselves for having a real Somali on the police force? TruthRevolt
Mohamed Noor was not hired because he was competent, but because he was a Somali Muslim.
The Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot an unarmed Australian woman graduated from the city’s accelerated police cadet program.
Officer Mohamed Noor graduated in 2015 after the seven month training program, which is a quicker, nontraditional route to policing aimed at helping those who already have a college degree enter law enforcement, The Star Tribune reported.
Mr Noor shot dead bride-to-be Justine Damond on July 15 as she stood outside her Minneapolis home in pajamas.
The 31-year-old police officer was fast tracked into his role through the city’s accelerated cadet program. The seven-month training program is designed for applicants already with a college degree, with recipients receiving tuition for Hennepin Technical College to complete their studies.
Cadets are also given a US$20 per hour salary plus benefits during the course. DailyMail
A witness comes forward
A witness who was nearby when Justine Damond was fatally shot by a Minneapolis police officer has been located and is cooperating, according to state investigators.
The witness, who was seen bicycling east on W. 51st Street immediately before the shooting and who stopped and watched officers perform CPR “has been cooperative and provided an interview today,” according to a news release from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
A source with direct knowledge of the investigation said the witness filmed part of the encounter.
The agency asked anyone else who may have witnessed the Saturday night shooting to contact the BCA at 651-793-7000.
The BCA made a plea for the witness to come forward on Tuesday, after revealing preliminary evidence based on a four-hour interview with officer Matthew Harrity. Officer Mohamed Noor, who shot and killed Damond, still has not provided a statement to investigators, the BCA said. StarTribune
A “transgender toolkit” for public schools in Minnesota advises teachers to call children “scholars” instead of boys and girls.
The guidelines were approved Wednesday by the “School Safety Technical Assistance Council” and will be distributed to Kindergarten through 12th grade public schools and charter schools throughout the state. The toolkit attempts to “ensure a safe and supportive transition” for children becoming a different gender at school.
The toolkit allows for boys who identify as girls to use the girls’ bathroom, and tells teachers to ask kids what their “preferred pronouns” are.
The Minnesota Department of Education encourages parents to have “acceptance and support of their child’s gender identity” if they want their child to perform well at school. FreeBeacon
The Minnesota Toolkit states that the 2016 guidelines were rescinded, then the Toolkit quotes the 2016 guidelines numerous times as if it is still in effect.
The directive under the Obama administration was overturned by President Trump in February. The Dept. of Education withdrew its false interpretation and expansion of Title IX to include gender identity.
“Transgender students should be afforded equal opportunities to play sports. A student should not be required to provide medical or other documentation that is not required of all students in order to participate, according to 2016 Title IX guidance. Title IX requires that schools provide transgender students with the right to participate in such activities, including athletics, in a manner consistent with their gender identity.” pg 9, Minnesota Toolkit
It teaches gender is based on feelings not biology. False, misleading, and unscientific .
through these policies and this ideology, MDE is violating its own bullying policies by creating an extremely hostile environment for students and adults who reject—on a scientific basis and/or a moral basis—that gender ideology is dangerous to children. The MDE is opposing the will of the overwhelming majority of Minnesota parents and taxpayers by forcing this toolkit and this unscientific, radical view of sexuality on our schools. CPL is receiving increasing reports from parents, teachers, and students that, when they do not adopt and affirm gender fluid thinking, they are being harassed, bullied, called bigots and haters, and intimidated into conformity.

The fatal police shooting of an unarmed woman in Minnesota was committed by one of five Somalis that Minneapolis recruited as part of its affirmative-action plan, according to new reports.
“The city’s affirmative-action program requires it to give preferential treatment to minorities, not only those hired by the city but by all contractors awarded contracts of more than $100,000,” reports World Net Daily.
Minneapolis police Ofc. Mohamed Noor is accused of shooting and killing Australian Justine Damond, 40, who was engaged to be married in August. The local Star Tribune boiled the July 15 incident down to this: “… two officers in one squad car, responding to the 911 call, pulled into the alley. Damond, in her pajamas, went to the driver’s side door and was talking to the driver. The officer in the passenger seat pulled his gun and shot Damond through the driver’s side door, sources confirmed.”
That officer was Noor, a Somali-born recruit once praised by Mayor Betsy Hodges…
Other odd reports have been emerging since the shooting. For one, Noor had three complaints filed against him by citizens in just two years, record show. One was resolved but the other two are still active.
Meanwhile, the Jihad Watch website interviewed some of Noor’s neighbors.
“He is extremely nervous,” forklift driver Chris Miller, 49, who has lived next door for the past two years, told the site. “He is a little jumpy … He has little respect for women he has little respect for blacks and kids,” said Miller, who is African-American. “The least thing you say to him can set him off.” DailyWire
That is horrible. The progressives and their open borders are going to cause epidemics of disease to break out! All in the name of their utopia fantasy.
Two hundred and ninety-six refugees were diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB) between 2010 and 2014 in Minnesota, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.
Seventy-one were diagnosed within one year of their arrival, while 225 were diagnosed after the first year.
The number of active TB cases reported among refugees arriving in Minnesota is ten times higher than reported in any of the fourteen other states that have released refugee TB data to the public, or made it available to Breitbart News.
The other 13 states:
Nebraska (21), Louisiana (21), Michigan (19), Vermont (17), Colorado (16), Florida (11), Ohio (11 in one county), Idaho (7), Kentucky (9 in one county), North Dakota (4 in one county), Indiana (4), California (3), and Tennessee, where two refugees have been diagnosed with the very dangerous, multi-drug resistant (MDR) TB.
The total number of active TB cases diagnosed among refugees resettled in the United States in recent years now stands at 468, but 36 states have yet to report their number. Data reported in several of the fourteen states in which there is some data (Ohio, North Dakota, Kentucky, and Tennessee) is only partial, and in other states (California, and Indiana) covers only the most recent year, rather than the five most recent years.
TB is only one disease making a comeback in the U.S.
A number of other diseases, some of which are prevalent among foreign born residents of the United States and foreign visitors, also present a current problem, to varying degrees, including zika, flesh eating parasites—cutaneous leishmaniasis, ebola, leprosy, intestinal parasites, HIV, scabies, and diptheria.

A suspect who attacked at least 8 at a St. Cloud shopping mall Saturday night was shot by an off-duty officer, according to St. Cloud police. The attacker referred to Allah during the attacks, the police chief said. StarTribune
At least eight people were stabbed at the Crossroads Mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota on September 17 by a suspect in a private security uniform who referenced Allah and asked at least one victim if he was Muslim, according to the police chief.
“It has hit home for us,” St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson said in a midnight news conference. “It’s an awful day. Starting tomorrow, things won’t be the same.”
Asked if he would call the mass stabbing at the Midwestern mall a terrorist attack, he said, “Not yet.” He said police needed to investigate and do their due diligence. “What we know it is is a lone suspect who attacked eight people. Whether that was a terrorist attack, we are not willing to say that right now because we just don’t know.” KSTP
Manhattan explosion leaves 29 hurt
Mayor Bill de Blasio: “intentional act but had no terror connection.” How would he know that before an investigation?
An explosion in a crowded Manhattan neighborhood on Saturday night left 29 people injured, and authorities said a second nearby site was also being investigated. Mayor Bill de Blasio called the blast an “intentional act,” but said there was no terrorist connection.
“Tonight, New York City experienced a very bad incident,” de Blasio said at a news conference near the scene in Chelsea. “We have no credible and specific threat at this moment. “
De Blasio said the blast was “an intentional act” and tried to calm any fears among nervous New Yorkers, saying the explosion had no terrorist connection and wasn’t related to a pipe bomb explosion earlier Saturday in New Jersey at a charity run.
A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that a second device that officers were investigating four blocks from the scene appeared to be a pressure cooker attached to wiring and a cellphone. AP
Terrorism probed in Seaside Park, NJ blast at the start of route of a Marine Corps charity race.
A pipe-bomb-style device detonated in a garbage can at the start of the route of a Marine Corps charity race Saturday morning, injuring no one, but sparking a massive law-enforcement response and suspicions of terrorism.
The FBI said it was “unaware of any known threat” to public safety, in an early-evening press conference that lasted about two minutes. Brad Cohen, the special agent in charge of the Newark FBI office, said the agency’s Joint Terrorism Task Force was taking the lead in investigation into the explosion. He said the agency was working to make sure there was “no stone left unturned” in the probe.
Multiple agencies are investigating the incident and whether the motive was terror, said Al Della Fave, spokesman for the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office..
“You would have to assume that at a military-type event, the U.S. Marines, a device is placed along the route of a charity event, it would be hard to think it would be anything else,’’ Della Fave said.
The device went off about 9:35 a.m. at Ocean Avenue and D Street, where the Seaside Semper Five 5K race had been scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m., Della Fave said.
Problems with registration for the race delayed its start and possibly spared people from injury, he said.
“When it went off, there was nobody in the area,’’ Della Fave said. APP
Lutheran Social Services has resettled at least 1000 Muslims in the state of Minnesota.
Once an essential Lutheran Institution in American Christianity, Lutheran Pastor Rev.

Ironically, the Muslim imam selected to endorse this booklet appears to be a Hamas supporter, believes that Shariah Law should be enforced in American communities where Muslims are the majority, heads one of two mosques that have been the focus of articles about Somali youth leaving Minneapolis to fight for a terrorist organization, and was recently refused a government security clearance.

“I’d have a problem with them teaching that gender is a state of mind to my children,” Paula Rothstein, the parent of two kids at the charter school, told KAAL, “because I don’t believe it.”
“Is it bullying when a child says my parents taught me that someone is born male or female?” Autumn Leva asked during the presentation, according to the Star Tribune. “Disagreeing with someone isn’t automatically bullying.”
The latest fracas involving a transgender student at a taxpayer-funded school involves a kindergarten boy whose parents are sending him to school wearing pink shoes and a jumper.
The unidentified five-year-old boy attends Nova Classical Academy, a charter school in St. Paul, Minn., reports Minneapolis Fox affiliate KMSP-TV.
The boy’s parents, Hannah and Dave Edwards, say they are concerned about bullying and want the school to address the problem at an instructional level. DailyCaller
