Now we learn that two to three shots were fired by the Somali police officer into the body of the pajama clad yoga teacher standing at the driver’s side window. The officers sure don’t seem upset in the audio report we have now do they? We find out that no Grand Jury will be impaneled. Anyone want to bet this gets buried?
The Medical Examiner labeled it murder. Why aren’t the people burning down the town?? The Washington Post of course gives the Officer a sympathetic article.
The Washington Post featured a sympathetic article on the Minneapolis, Minn. police officer who shot an Australian woman last weekend, a marked shift from their coverage on former officer Jeronimo Yanez.
The Tuesday article focuses on the Somali community fearing retribution because a Somali officer, Mohamed Noor, reportedly fatally shot a white Australian woman. The piece also emphasizes the praise that Noor has received from his community and superiors.
It’s not until halfway through the story that the article mentions the three use of force complaints against Noor, one of which was closed. The article quickly turns from that information to a comment by a local activist on the role model Noor is for those around him.
Noor fatally shot Justine Damond, an engaged woman, after she called the police about a sexual assault happening near her house. The Medical Examiner’s office described the fatal shooting as a homicide.
For an outlet concerned with police brutality, WaPo starts off describing a party being thrown for Officer Noor, followed by how his presence on the force made his community proud of him.
