Australian woman Justine Damond shot dead by police in Minneapolis

quote:

Justine Damond, aged 40, was shot dead in Minneapolis about 11:30pm local time on Saturday after two officers responded to a report of a possible assault.

Her stepson Zach Damond, 22, said she called police after hearing a noise in the alleyway near their house in the suburb of Fulton.

Ms Hodges said she understood the police body cameras and squad camera, which were introduced to the Minneapolis Police Department last year, were not switched on when the shooting occurred.

The two officers involved have been placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure.

Not even white blonde women are safe any more.

Zach Damond spoke at the vigil calling for more information and transparency from the authorities.

"I just know that she heard a sound in the alley so she called the police, and the cops showed up.

"And she probably thought something bad was happening and then the next thing, they take my best friend's life.

"I'm so done with all this violence, it's so much bullshit.

"America sucks, these cops need to be trained differently and I need to move out of here."

The body cameras off is disturbing. They went in to the situation with the premeditated intent to kill. Doesn't sound like some tragic accident.

Sounds like she called 911 to report a possible assault in the alley behind her house.
Cops pull into the alley, she's out there in her jammies, leans down on the driver's side to talk to the police, and the cop in the passenger's side reaches across his partner and shoots her through the open driver's window??

I guess the body cams weren't on because they weren't even out of the car yet, which makes sense I guess.

But why in the world did they shoot her; this story seems absolutely bizarre. I know, I know, cops suck etc etc etc, but there HAS to be something more to it, right?? Right??


FWIW, this is a nice part of Minneapolis, as if you couldn't guess by her perfect hair and teeth.

Boy, between Jamar Clark, Philando Castile, and now this, the Twin Cities are definitely above/beyond their quota of high profile police shootings.

It only sounds bad because of the framing. Minneapolis is so progressive, you can euthanize yourself by dialing a phone, no questions asked!
