The recent shooting of an unarmed White woman named Justine Damond by a Black cop and Somali immigrant, Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor, has exposed the hypocrisy of the Blue Lives Matter movement. Noor and his partner were responding to a 911 call from Damond in which she heard a “woman having sex or getting beaten.”

When the police officers parked their patrol car in a nearby alley it was reported that Damond hit the back of the police car with her hand and approached the driver’s side window. Noor pulled his service weapon and shot Damond in the abdomen. She later died from her injuries.

Since the shooting, there were attempts to setup a GoFundMe campaign for the officer and his family for expected expenses. These pages were soon taken down by the website for some unknown reason. GoFundMe in the past has taken down campaigns for people who are charged with a crime, pending the outcome or phrasing of the campaign, This did not stop NYPD Sgt. Hugh Barry supporters from raising over $60K to help his wife and family. Barry is facing murder charges for killing a naked Black senior citizen who suffered from mental illness named Deborah Danner.

If you search in social media there is no official statement of support for Noor from the Fraternal Order of Police or the NRA over the shooting. Instead, Noor was identified within the media and his personal life and past complaints were immediately released for scrutiny. This is unlike the officer who was involved in the shooting of  Philando Castile by Minneapolis Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez.

But this shooting of an unarmed White woman in pajamas was the tipping point that led to the resignation of Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau last week and calls for Mayor Betsy Hodges to resign from office.  News media showed hundreds of mostly White protestors protesting the shooting of Damond and included the mother of Philando Castile in support.

Noor was previously praised in local media as being the first Somali officer in his precinct and a college graduate. He is the subject of an internal investigation and has given no statement regarding the shooting. Because of a provision known as the “Garrity Warning” in Minnesota public employees under internal investigation are given the option to provide information or face disciplinary action. Because of the wording of the law, any statement that Noor gives in a police internal investigation cannot be used against him in a criminal case. The “Garrity Warning” reads in part: “Because you are being required to provide information under the threat of disciplinary action, the information you provide, and any evidence resulting from the information you provide, cannot and will not be used against you in any subsequent criminal proceeding.”

This fact is not sitting well with many in social media circles and for the first time, there is open reverse victim blaming on a cop. Noor is currently in divorce proceedings and he’s also being sued for false imprisonment in the arrest of a mentally ill woman. The alleged victim identified as  Teresa Graham was allegedly forcibly sent to a hospital for mental illness but was cleared. She is also suing Noor for battery, assault, and negligence. The conservative news website WND has described Noor as an “affirmative action hire” despite the fact that he holds a degree in economics and business. It will be interesting if Noor uses the reason for the shooting  as “he was in fear for his life.”

    Apparently, Blues Lives only matter if your a Muslim Immigrant Cop.

    Hey author, maybe do some research. Philado Castile wasn’t shot by a Minneapolis police officer. Didn’t happen in Minneapolis. But hey. ignoring facts to further your ideals is common practice these days.

      Lol you can’t be serious if you think that was the most important part of the article. Shame on you, I’m sure you’re Caucasian

  • Carter Braxton

    Everything is about race to you liberal idiots. Noor’s attorney himself told gofundme to take the fundraiser down. Your liberal white guilt and racism doesn’t mean everyone else sees everything through skin colored glasses.

      The only color I see here is yellow: the color of the coward who shot and killed an innocent woman because he heard a noise.

      • La-Chanda Sexclibra Smith

        Can say the same for the many scared big bad officers that have done the same thing.

      • Guest

        I agree but do you say the same when the victim of these cowardly leos are black?

        • https://www.facebook.com/karl.hungus.984 Karl Hungus

          Yes, I will say the very same thing when an innocent black man is shot by police.

      • SrAgri

        I think cowardice was behind Yanez’s shooting of Philando Castile, but I don’t think it figured as heavily in this case.

        Noor was obviously trigger-happy and had issues with dealing with others (according to his neighbors), but it doesn’t make sense why he would shoot so quickly with no indication of a threat.

        • https://www.facebook.com/karl.hungus.984 Karl Hungus

          I can’t think of any more plausible explanation than he was frightened. He heard a loud noise, he was jumpy, so he fired blindly at it. If that doesn’t jibe with you, then what explanation do you think is more likely?

          • SrAgri

            I don’t know, but he just doesn’t seem like he was the nervous type. He seems more like an angry person itching to shoot someone.

    • La-Chanda Sexclibra Smith

      Carter, it’s always about race. You know who doesn’t see that, Caucasian people because you aren’t effected by what we are. I really think Caucasians are barbaric savages who should be treated in that manner

        Hey apelady, don’t look now but your knuckles are scuffed up.

    • SrAgri

      I think the GoFundME page was actually set up by someone else trying to take advantage of the situation.

  • Dick Burns

    This must be another rascist trying to keep the reparations dialog running. You wont t get a dime idiot. Al Sharpton is another vermin of society. You two probably go to the same church as Barry Soetero

    i feel sorry for him , a lot of black cops are on alert, this would not happen if he was an african american cop . they are the ones who cant wait to get out that uniform and dare not work in thier own neighborhoods , most cops are transplants from other states . rarely does anyone want to police in the same city they grew up for fear of retaliation on thier families . that cop is probably under muslim christian belief but just choice the wrong job . to repect his religion . somali/? his communitie must me livid ., how you gonna be a christian an carrying a gun anyway only in america gods rule are broken like that . people so quik to believe god is in their church only and no one elses . somalians are political assylum most of them . and paid to be here , how he got that job is beyond me . since they hire mostly ex miltary ummm? i smell a fish somewhere

  • Krymson Franklin

    Why do colored people always want to cry the loudest about shyt? This website and ALL of the idiotic articles on it are pure racist drivel. It’s no wonder why blacks are considered to be vastly superior at being useless.

  • SrAgri

    Do you all realize that Mohamed Noor was a terrible racist? According to his neighbor, who is a black, Noor hated African Americans and was generally a jerk.

    Well said, Mo Barnes. Thank you.
