Re: The Shooting of Justine Damond Goes to Court
Being a Minnesota resident, this is one I hear about quite a bit (but haven't here followed your links or done any detail (re)checks).

It has the strange twist(s) that the shooter officer is a black emigrant from Somalia and the victim is a white woman from Australia.

This brings up the situation that a white officer can get away with shooting a black, but not so much the other way around.

Minneapolis Police Officer Convicted Of Murder In 911 Caller Death
https://talkingpointsmemo.com/...squad-car-after-calling-911

quote:
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minneapolis police officer was convicted of murder Tuesday in the fatal shooting of an unarmed woman who approached his squad car minutes after calling 911 to report a possible rape behind her home.

Mohamed Noor was convicted of third-degree murder as well as manslaughter in the July 2017 death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond , a 40-year-old dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia. He wasn’t convicted of the most serious charge of intentional second-degree murder.

Jurors deliberated about five hours Monday and six on Tuesday before reaching a decision.

Re: Minneapolis Police Officer Convicted Of Murder In 911 Caller Death
Minneapolis agrees to pay $20 million in death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond

quote:
A few days after officer Mohamed Noor was convicted of murdering Justine Ruszczyk Damond, the city of Minneapolis agreed to a record $20 million settlement.

The city of Minneapolis will pay the family of Justine Ruszczyk Damond a record $20 million to settle a lawsuit over her July 15, 2017, shooting death by a Minneapolis police officer.

Mayor Jacob Frey announced the agreement solemnly at a news conference Friday, flanked by City Council members, the city attorney and the police chief. The deal stipulates that the family will donate $2 million of its settlement to the Minneapolis Foundation's Fund for Safe Communities, a program set up to fight gun violence in the city, Frey said.
