According to the roster, he is being held on possible third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges. Damond's family issued the following statement: Justine’s family in Australia and the US applaud today’s decision to criminally charge Officer Noor with Justine’s murder as one step toward justice for this iniquitous act. While we waited over eight months to come to...

    A 32-year-old man has been charged in connection to what police say was an attempted sexual assault Friday on the Minneapolis Community and Technical College campus. Asad Abu Mohamed, of Bloomington, has been charged with one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct (force or coercion), one count of terroristic threats and one count of fourth-degree assault (school official). The first two charges are felonies, the last is a gross misdemeanor. The criminal complaint states Minneapolis police were dispatched to the campus around 1:05 p.m. Friday where they encountered what the complaint terms a "chaotic scene," as witnesses were comforting a...
  • 25 Disturbing Facts About Refugee Resettlements from Somalia-How terror arrives on American shores

    Of the 11 countries included in President Trump's refugee ban, one stands out -- Somalia. That ban expired two weeks ago and the U.S. has begun accepting refugees again from Somalia and 10 other high-risk nations. Although Trump promises "extreme vetting," many Muslim refugees come as children and become radicalized years later. Somali crime rivals Somali terrorism as a major problem, and the two clearly blur into one another. The problem is leaking from Minnesota into South Dakota -- as Lutheran Social Services has resettled more than 4,500 Somalis in Sioux Falls. Many of the Somalis have migrated from Sioux Falls to...

    Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman is convening a grand jury to gather evidence in the 2017 shooting of Justine Damond, but said he still will decide whether Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor will face charges in her death. Matthew Harrity, Noor's partner the night Damond was killed, was served a subpoena Wednesday to testify before a grand jury, said his attorney Fred Bruno. "It came as a surprise," Bruno said. He declined to say when Harrity will testify. Hennepin County attorney's office spokesman Chuck Laszewski maintained that Freeman "will continue the office's two-year-old policy where he makes the decision on...

    Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman had initially said his team would announce its decision on whether it would file charges in the shooting death of Justine Damond, but on Thursday, Freeman said in a statement the investigation would not be completed by the Dec. 31 deadline. “A dedicated team in the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office has been working diligently since we received the case in mid-September,” Freeman said in a statement. “Our goal was to complete the review and make a decision on whether or not to bring charges by the end of the year. We are getting more information...
  • Damond's Family Expresses Concern About Investigation

    The father of Justine Damond said family members have concerns about the investigation into her death after Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman was captured on video last week criticizing investigators in the case. Freeman said he didn't have enough evidence to charge Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor because investigators "haven't done their job." Damond was shot in July when she approached Noor's squad car after calling 911 to report a possible sexual assault. John Ruszczyk said investigators from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension promised the family a thorough investigation after Damond was killed last summer. "We are apprehensive that...

    A United States District Judge has halted the deportation of more than 90 Somali nationals — 60 of which are convicted criminals — back to Somalia following a lawsuit alleging abuse by federal immigration officials. In a ruling this week, a District Judge stopped about 92 Somali nationals from being deported after a class-action lawsuit was filed claiming federal immigration officials mistreated the group of Somalis on a previous deportation effort that was never fully executed. On Dec. 7, the group of Somali illegal aliens and convicted criminals were on their way to Somalia from Louisiana when they stopped in...

    Hennepin County’s attorney said he does not have enough evidence yet to file charges against the Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman last summer.

In a video recorded by one of the members, Freeman expresses frustration with the lack of cooperation from Minneapolis police in the investigation of Justine Damond’s killing on the night of July 15. “Let me just say it’s not my fault.

According to a report in The Birmingham Mail: The members of a group known as The Chyna Crew humiliated and sexually assaulted a woman who acted as a runner for other pushers.

    WILLMAR, Minn. — The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations wants a Willmar man charged with a hate crime after an incident at a farmer's market last weekend. Willmar police were called to the farmer's market about 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 12, on a report that an individual had allegedly been cursing at a young adult male Somali-American selling vegetables at a stand. According to law enforcement reports, he then threw a pig's foot at the Somali. The Willmar Police Department identified the man as Joseph Fernkes, 61, of Willmar. CAIR-MN now wants Fernkes charged with a hate...

    This political correctness was just as responsible for the death of Justine Damond as the bullet from Noor was Christina Benson was a civilian employee of the Ottawa Police Service and her job was to conduct background checks on those applying to become police officers with the Ottawa police. Last summer she conducted checks on 19 new recruits. Benson found 18 of the 19 applicants passed the check while one failed. She forwarded her findings to Charles Bordeleau, Chief of the Ottawa police. The chief has the final say on who gets hired and who does not. The man Benson...

    And so the questions just grow more intense. There is still no evidence that Noor is a jihadi or that this was a jihad attack. But this does seem to be yet another manifestation of the fear of “Islamophobia” charges resulting in a Muslim being placed in a position for which he was not qualified and was able to do harm to others. The quintessential example of this phenomenon is Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood jihad mass murderer. With three complaints against him in two years, Mohamed Noor seems at very least to be dangerously reckless and/or incompetent....

    We're hardly hearing anything about this but it stinks to high heaven. Fox finally reported on it this AM and said that Mohammed is not talking with investigators. This tells me there's WAY more to the story and it's all about his religion. If he's not talking, what happens? Does liberal MN just cut him loose and chalk it up to itchy fingers? Are the other reported cases about him related to his religion as well? When will we hear more from Harrity, his partner? It's time to expose this evil for what it is. The silver lining is that...
