All hell is breaking loose in Minnesota.
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman is saying he does not have enough evidence to bring charges against quick-triggered Somali killer cop Mohamed Noor in the midnight shooting of pajama-clad Aussie yoga teacher Justine Damond.
Seems Reluctant Mike doesn’t see bringing charges against Noor as something that’s gonna happen now, soon or maybe ever.
Scott Johnson at Powerline blog is all over Freeman’s sleazy attempt to weasel outta bringing charges against Noor in this explosive, no-win for the local DFL case:
Confronted about the delay by members of Twin Cities Coalition for Justice 4 Jamar at a union event in Minneapolis, Freeman blamed the BCA. “I gotta have the evidence,” Freeman told his interlocutors. “And I don’t have it yet. And let me just say, it’s not my fault. So if it isn’t my fault, who didn’t do their jobs? It’s called investigators, and they don’t work for me. And they haven’t done their job.”
Freeman noted that Noor wasn’t talking and Ms. Damond is deceased. “So, I can’t talk to her cuz she’s gone, and the other cop just gave us shit, okay?” That’s the Mike Freeman speaking.
It’s worth a click here just to read the lengths Freeman’s pretzel logic goes to in order to kick this can down the road.
Not if you you live in the Twin Cities.
Meanwhile the Local Mainstream Media has been shamed into covering this story since Powerline ran the expose on Freeman’s reluctance to move the case:
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said he doesn’t yet have enough evidence to charge a Minneapolis police officer who killed an unarmed Australian woman this summer, blaming investigators who “haven’t done their job.”
Freeman is still deciding whether to charge officer Mohamed Noor, who shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond in the alley behind her home in July. Damond had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault. As she approached the squad car, Noor fired from the passenger seat, across his partner and through the driver’s window.
Damond’s death in Southwest Minneapolis’ Fulton neighborhood sparked protests and led to a police department shake-up, including the resignation of Chief Janee Harteau.
Trump should be so lucky as to have Mueller tap Reluctant Mike for a job…
