Noor charged in Damond shooting
The following article appeared in
Powerline on March 20th
It can’t come as any surprise to
those who have followed the killing of Justine Damond by Minneapolis police
officer Mohamed Noor this past July 15 in Minneapolis that Noor has been
charged. Our many posts on the case are accessible here. Early
in the case, for example, I reached out to a trusted source in the Minneapolis
police department for comment. He told me that if there weren’t some sort of
mitigating circumstances (and he said he was struggling to imagine what they
could be), the case represented the most egregious police shooting in his
lifetime, if not longer.
Based on all the known evidence, the
conclusion that Noor would be charged seemed unavoidable. The circumstances are
suggestive at best of gross negligence on Noor’s part. Noor himself refused to
talk. No innocent explanation was ever publicly offered. Only the long delay
raised a question. Today at long last comes word that charges
have been filed against Noor:
officer Mohamed Noor has turned himself in on murder and manslaughter charges
related to the July shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond. A warrant was
issued Tuesday for Noor’s arrest on charges filed in Hennepin County District
Court. Noor was booked into Hennepin County jail at 11:16 a.m., according to
jail records, on a Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension warrant for
third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Bail was set at $500,000.
Jail officials declined to release his booking photo. The charging documents,
which have been filed under seal, have not yet been made public.
According to jail
records, Noor is charged with third degree murder “perpetrating eminently
dangerous act and evincing depraved mind” and second-degree manslaughter,
“culpable negligence creating unreasonable risk.”
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman
convened a grand jury to take additional evidence in the case but reserved the
charging decision to himself. He has announced a 2:30 p.m. news conference this
afternoon to discuss the case. We will have more to say as is warranted.
