This may have unintended consequences. Social media seems to have exploded with people freaking out because a black officer shooting a white civilian is worth $200M but a black man shot by a white officer is only worth a few hundred thousand to a few million. I'm guessing it won't be long before protestors hit the streets.

This is Minneapolis Minnesota dude. SJW's never leave the streets. Protesters are just part of the landscape.

the article states it will be paid out of Minneapolis' "self-insurance fund". Sounds like tax payer funded.

Self insured = Liability Carrier. From what I saw on the city website 20 million is the max payout.

So if tax payers are paying, can tax payers sue for release of the records so they know what they paid for?




The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People again must learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. ~ Cicero 55 BC

Powerline covered the case

They wrote the lawyer who led the lawsuit and said:

"I also wonder whether you think the prospect of discovery in addition to the guilty verdict affected the settlement."

Bob Bennett reply:

"Our discovery would have been broader, deeper and more painful than the prosecutor. I would judge that had an impact."

"Evidence and lots of it, not race, was the determining factor."

Attorneys trying to get acquittal.

MINNEAPOLIS - Attorneys for former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor are asking a judge to acquit him of murder and manslaughter charges, arguing that there wasn't enough evidence to sustain the convictions.

A jury found Noor guilty of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter last month in the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk, who had called 911 because she thought she heard someone being assaulted in the alley behind her home.

Noor's attorneys argue in Tuesday's court filing that third-degree murder wasn't appropriate because the charge, which is described in statute as exhibiting a "depraved mind," was not appropriate. They cite other Minnesota cases, such as random shooting sprees or drivers speeding down the wrong way on a street, which they argue better fit the requirements of the charge.

"Mr. Noor reacted to dark alley in the middle of the night, thump on the squad, voice, body appearing at the driver's side window, the startled announcement of fear by officer Harrity as he reached for his firearm, and his observation that that the person in the window was raising their right arm," the defense's filing reads. "Mr. Noor's actions to defend his partner and himself, in the context of that night, are not evidence of the depraved mind envisioned by Minnesota courts for the last hundred years."

They also asked the judge to acquit Noor of second-degree manslaughter, which requires that a person's negligence created an unreasonable risk to cause death or great bodily harm.

"His actions were an attempt to minimize the danger he and officer [Matthew] Harrity believed was real at that moment," according to the defense's motion. "And after the fact, his shock and actions reveal a man with a heavy conscience, not a man acting in a conscious disregard for the risk he was creating."

The prosecution has not yet filed a response to the defense's motion to acquit.

Judge Kathryn Quaintance rejected a request in September by Noor's defense team to dismiss charges against him for lack of probable cause.

Noor's sentencing is scheduled for June 7. He could appeal his conviction after he's sentenced.

Prosecutor in Noor case entering alcohol treatment program

MINNEAPOLIS - Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman will be entering a treatment program for alcohol addiction.

The county’s top prosecutor, whose office won a recent conviction in the high-profile case of a Minneapolis police officer who killed an unarmed woman, issued a statement Friday saying he was evaluated for alcohol issues and agrees he needs treatment. He’ll be entering a “well-respected” program on Monday.

Freeman announced last Friday that he was taking a medical leave, citing “high stress.”

His statement this Friday said he has also worked to stabilize his “unacceptably high blood pressure.” He said he’s determined to reclaim his health and hopes to be back at work in mid-June. His top deputies will oversee the office in the meantime.

Freeman led the prosecution of former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor, who was convicted last month of murder and manslaughter in the July 2017 death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond. The dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia was shot when she approached Noor’s squad car minutes after calling 911 to report a possible rape behind her home. The case made international headlines.

Freeman, 71, has been county attorney since 2007 after also holding the office from 1991-99. He is the son of the late Orville Freeman, who was Minnesota governor and U.S. secretary of agriculture in the 1950s and ’60s.

No prison time for a murder conviction???

“MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Attorneys for the former Minneapolis police officer convicted of fatally shooting an unarmed woman in 2017 plan to ask a sentencing judge for no prison time.

If that’s not granted, they’re seeking less prison time than state sentencing guidelines recommend.

Mohamed Noor’s lawyers filed a motion Thursday asking for a “dispositional departure” when he is sentenced June 7. He was convicted of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia. She had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her house.

“The Grounds for the dispositional departure are his particular amenability to probation, cooperation, attitude in court and remorse,” Noor’s attorneys argued in the motion…”

I truly hope that you’re right...but it is Minnesota. My hope is that the judiciary realizes the public is *pissed* about this and sentences according to guidelines...but not *because of* public sentiment.

Noor sentencing hearing is today.

https://www.powerlineblog.com/...-noor-sentencing.php

Noor’s presumptive sentence for third-degree murder is about 12.5 years. Noor’s attorneys have asked for a sentence including no prison time (a so-called dispositional departure) or a more lenient prison sentence (a so-called durational departure) to one year and a day.

Still not enough...but better than “1 week each year on the anniversary of her death to honor her life” the defense proposed. Mad
