MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After about a day of deliberation, a jury has reached a verdict in the Mohamed Noor trial.

The jury of 10 men and two women got the case Monday after weeks of testimony. Jurors heard from more than 60 witnesses and experts about the case and procedures.

Noor, a former Minneapolis police officer, is charged with murder and manslaughter in the 2017 shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond. She had called 911 to report a possible sexual assaul behind her home.

On Tuesday afternoon, the jury deliberated for several hours before finally reaching a verdict. The prosecution and defense teams were asked to proceed to the courtroom immediately.

Prosecutors say Noor was not justified in shooting Damond, who called 911 about a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her south Minneapolis home.

Noor’s defense argues his actions were reasonable given all the circumstances. Noor testified that he shot Damond after hearing a bang on his squad car.

    Will I be surprised when this ends in a hung jury. No, because it it Minnesota after all..

    A guilty verdict would be ‘Islamophobic’, racist, xenophobic’ and not ‘Minnesota Nice’…bla bla bla bla..

    Their fall back position will be that Noor has emotional issues’ due to his time in Kenya’ or some rendition of that mixed bag of excuses..

    Please notice I did not say ‘reasons’..

    Why would I say that?

    Because. ‘The law is REASON, free of passion’..according to some old guy named Aristotle, and according to what ‘Justice’ used to be, before we abandoned common sense, logic, and rational thought in this country, and then replaced by the – all things are relative, and based upon OUR INDIVIDUAL INTERPRETIVE ‘FEELINGS’.

    In Minnesota, there is a 50% chance Noor will either get off completely, or get some sort of ‘community service’, or a 6 month sentence, to be commuted of course. I will be shocked if this does not happen..

    ‘It’s Minnesota!’..

    Welcome to Minnesota OUR Nightmare America..

    Hopefully the Jury rules on the facts, not any hidden agendas or the drama of the defense attorney – his performance is indicative of a last resort/attempt to save what should be a lost case. Minneapolis and where it is going is on trial here as well as Noor.

  3. Tim Neumann says:

    Depending on the capability of the Jurors to put aside the show boating of the Defense Attorneys, and apply rational common sense, will determine the outcome. Noor acted contradictory to his police training, but spent several month dreaming up his version of the scenario that killed an innocent woman. Jail would be the best possible outcome.

    Yeah!! Finally justice is served!

  5. Bicycle Betsy must be so proud of her first Somali police officer.

  6. This is a trravesty — especially if Officer Noor was lured into a “Police officer express” program by an incompetent white Mayor.

    I think local media is protecting the Honky white incompetent Mayor from all this too.
