On Saturday a forty-year-old Australian woman, Justine Damond, called 911 in Minneapolis to report a possible rape taking place near her home. When police arrived, however, and Justine approached the driver’s side of the police car, Minneapolis officer Mohamed Noor shot her dead from the passenger’s side. Damond was in her pajamas at the time, and only held a mobile phone.
According to author Robert Spencer, it was “political correctness” that put Justine in the way of a “nervous, jumpy” cop who took her life.
“Mohamed Noor is a Somali Muslim. He was the first Somali Muslim on the Minneapolis police force. In 2016, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges expressed her excitement about that fact,” Spencer said.
According to Spencer, Mayor Hodges wasn’t excited because Mohamed Noor had the skills to become a police officer, but because he represented a religious and ethnic group she was anxious to court.
“It is increasingly clear, as we learn about Mohamed Noor’s nervousness and jumpiness and lack of respect for women, and from his own account of events that he relayed to friends (that he was ‘startled’ and reacted by opening fire), that Mohamed Noor was not cut out to be a policeman,” Spencer said. “He did not have the temperament for it, and if he hadn’t killed Justine Damond, he would likely have done something similar at some point.”
Officer Noor was not a jihad terrorist, Spencer pointed out, but rather a “trigger-happy, panicky, reckless individual who held his job not because he was fit for it, but because of what he symbolized.”
