    I read this earlier. How insane is that. Body cameras are to remain on. Waiting to see how her standing at the drivers side door talking to the cop justified getting shot through the drivers side door

    I am following this case too. It was brought up on the 'My favorite murderer' Facebook page today and one of my anti-corrupt police YouTube channels. Strange how quick it circulated...pretty blond chick I guess.

    Meet to find the article I was reading last night. Evidently she was reporting a rape to the cops when she was shot by the cop. Hmm cover up maybe?

    The city police chief resigned at the request of the mayor on Friday, less than a week after a police officer fatally shot an unarmed Australian bride-to-be who had called for help, and protesters overtook a press conference to demand that the mayor go next.

    Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges said in a statement that Chief Janee Harteau “deserves everyone’s thanks for her dedicated service.” But Hodges said she had lost confidence in the chief’s leadership ― “and from the many conversations I’ve had with people around our city, especially this week, it is clear that she has lost the confidence of the people of Minneapolis as well.


    Justine Damond, 40, was shot in the abdomen Saturday by Officer Mohamed Noor, 31, who responded with his partner to Damond’s 911 call reporting a possible rape. Noor has declined to speak to investigators, and police haven’t explained why Damond was shot.


    The state’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, the agency conducting an external investigation into the shooting, announced in a statement Friday that officials had identified and interviewed a man on a bike who witnessed the incident.

    Later Friday evening, protesters forced their way into a press conference, where Hodges was supposed to discuss Harteau’s resignation. The crowd shouted at Hodges to resign and chanted “Bye, bye, Betsy!”

    “We’re asking for your prompt resignation. We don’t want you as our mayor of Minneapolis anymore,” said John Thompson, a best friend of Philando Castile, who was shot to death by police in a suburb of nearby St. Paul in July 2016.

    After unsuccessfully attempting to calm the crowd, Hodges was escorted out of the conference room to her office.

    Protesters quickly took over.

    “We got real problems in this town, but we’re the ones that are going to solve them,” said Michelle Gross, of Communities United Against Police Brutality.

    After the demonstration ended, Hodges resumed the news conference and noted that she would not resign, as the protesters had demanded.

    “This has been a particularly difficult and heartbreaking and challenging and awful week for the people of our city,” Hodges told reporters. “I share people’s frustration about the pace of change in policing and in building community trust.

    “I hope people appreciate that there is no magic wand for public safety. We need to do more, and a change in leadership at the [police] department will help move us forward.”
