He is getting death threats — or so goes the claim. And a Muslim leader in Minneapolis is warning about “anti-Somali rhetoric.” By the time the enemedia is through, people will be thinking that Justine Damond killed Mohamed Noor. This is obscene, and is an outrage to her memory. Justine Damond deserves justice.
“Justine Damond investigation continues as police officer Mohamed Noor faces death threats,” by Mathew Murphy, Daily News Australia, July 28, 2017 (thanks to Tom):
MINNEAPOLIS Officer Mohamed Noor has received dozens of death threats as public outrage over the shooting of Australian Justine Damond explodes.
Noor, who is yet to give a statement on how Damond died, is said to feel remorse over the death of the 40-year-old life coach.
Minneapolis Police Federation president Bob Kroll, who has been in regular contact with Noor, told News Corp that he alone had received about 10 messages on his voicemail threatening himself, Noor or the police in general.
“Some have been very specific and others have been quite general death threats, not just to our office but to the 5th precinct (where Noor worked) and elsewhere,” he said. “In total there have been dozens of death threats They really aren’t helping anyone.”
Mr Kroll said Noor feels “relatively sure that he is safe” where he is staying.
Asked if that meant he had left Minneapolis, where the story is still front-page news, Mr Kroll replied, “I can’t comment on that. I don’t want to say anything that would jeopardise his safety.”…
“Warsame blasts anti-Somali rhetoric in wake of Damond shooting,” by Pat Pheifer, Star Tribune, July 24, 2017 (thanks to Tom):
Minneapolis City Council Member Abdi Warsame pushed back Sunday against what he called racism, Islamophobia and xenophobia directed at the Somali-American community after officer Mohamed Noor fatally shot Justine Damond last week.
Warsame was surrounded by at least two dozen members of the Somali community as he held a news conference outside the Darul Quba Cultural Center in south Minneapolis, which he described as “the heart of the East African community.”
He lambasted media reports and “fake news peddlers on Facebook” who called Noor “Somali killer cop,” and said former U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann was “talking trash” when she insinuated in a speech last week that Noor may have shot Damond for “cultural” reasons.
“What we’re seeing is a lot of rhetoric in the media where this is a Somali issue, where this person is a Somali officer,” Warsame said. “That’s very dangerous, because you’re seeing an action of an individual, a member of the Police Department, being given to the whole community. That’s unacceptable.
“I would like to tell Michele Bachmann personally that I’m not going anywhere and my family’s not going anywhere and the community’s not going anywhere.”…
