Minneapolis police chief “resigns” after Muslim cop kills woman who called 911

Still no arrest of the Muslim cop, no charges and no answers from anyone in city management. Justine Damond ‘didn’t have to die’. Her death is the result of years of diversity and affirmative action politics that placed a mayor, a police chief and a Muslim refugee in positions they were all unprepared for.

Minneapolis police Chief Janee Harteau resigned Friday at the request of the mayor, who said she lost confidence in the chief after last weekend’s fatal police shooting of an unarmed Australian woman who had called 911.

In a statement released Friday, Harteau said: “I’ve decided I am willing to step aside to let a fresh set of leadership eyes see what more can be done for the MPD to be the very best it can be.”

Mayor Betsy Hodges said she asked for the chief’s resignation after assessing where the department needs to go.

“I’ve lost confidence in the Chief’s ability to lead us further … it is clear that she has lost the confidence of the people of Minneapolis as well,” Hodges said. “For us to continue to transform policing – and community trust in policing – we need new leadership at MPD.”

Hours later, Hodges was interrupted as she tried to elaborate on Harteau’s departure at a City Hall news conference. A few dozen protesters entered the room and demanded her resignation, chanting “Bye-bye Betsy as they waved signs that said “Messy Betsy” and “You are next.” Hodges eventually walked out as they surrounded her at the podium, but returned later to take questions from reporters.

She said she understands and shares the public’s frustrations, but “I will not be resigning.”

Harteau, who worked her way up from the bottom of the department to become the city’s first female, first openly gay and first Native American police chief, said she was proud of the work she accomplished and honored to serve as chief. But she said the shooting of 40-year-old Justine Damond by one of her officers and other incidents “have caused me to engage in deep reflection.”

The chief, who once successfully filed a discrimination and sexual harassment complaint against the police force along with her partner, said she must “put the communities we serve first” despite the department’s accomplishments under her leadership.

Harteau was out of the city on personal time for nearly a week following last Saturday’s shooting of Damond, a life coach and bride-to-be who was killed by an officer responding to her 911 call of a possible rape.

The state is investigating the shooting. In her first remarks on the case Thursday when she returned to work, Harteau defended the training of Mohamed Noor, the SomaliAmerican officer who shot Damond, but was sharply critical of him.

Still, some City Council members called for a change in leadership.

Linea Palmisano, who represents the ward where Damond died, told fellow council members that she was “done with image control and crisis management” and that it’s “time for action.” After Harteau’s resignation, Palmisano said she looks forward to the start of changes that she feels the department needs to make.

Shortly after the announcement, Hodges nominated Assistant Chief Medaria Arradondo to be the next chief. Nicknamed “Rondo,” he served as the department’s public face after Damond’s shooting while Harteau was out of town. Arradondo, who is African-American, has been with the department since 1989.

Police union president Bob Kroll said Harteau’s resignation is a much-needed change for the department and that she handled Damond’s shooting poorly. He said after being gone for days, she returned and “basically throws the whole department under the bus.”

He said he agrees with protesters that Hodges should be next to go, adding that the move against the chief was a political one for Hodges.

Indeed. Hodges should be gone ASAP. She’s busy protecting the Muslim community at the expense of all other Minnesotans.

Mayor Hodges submits to Muslims

And the national media has been silent on the murder of a white woman by a black, Somali Muslim refugee cop. White women’s lives don’t matter to them.

More incompetence from mayor Hodges on her pick to replace the ousted police chief:

Hodges recommended Arradondo because of his race, resume and reputation.

Arradondo started out as a school resource officer.

Arradondo eventually became chief of staff to the boss he’s been nominated to replace, Janee Harteau.

In 2007, he was part of a group known as the Mill City Five. The group of African American officers sued the city alleging a culture of racial discrimination and retaliation. They won a six-figure settlement.

Recall, it was Hodges who set up the phone line to rat on Americans who speak out against Islam.

Mayor Hodges – unfit for mayor

  1. Minneapolis police chief resigns; Bachmann says grand jury must be impaneled
    by Ann Corcoran
    Apparently Mohamed Noor still won’t talk to police investigators in the wake of the worst disaster for advocates of ‘diversity hires’ in America—the shooting by a Somali former refugee of an unarmed woman, an immigrant, who had called 911 looking for help.

    Former presidential candidate Rep.Michele Bachmann, not silent in her home state: Where is the grand jury? And, could this have been a hate crime?

    Not only has the police chief resigned, announced by the mayor at a tempestuous press conference, but the people of Minneapolis are out for the mayor’s head as well. Here is one report from The Guardian (foreign press isnt’ giving up on the story!).

    Here is what Leo Hohmann (WND) reported yesterday in an update of the story we reported here, here and here.

    A day before submitting her resignation, Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau, in her first public statement on the killing nearly a week ago of an unarmed woman by a Somali refugee cop, called her death “unnecessary” and said it went against the protocol and training given to her officers.

    “Justine [Damond] didn’t have to die,” Harteau, the city’s first openly lesbian police chief, said at a press conference Thursday night. Harteau had been hiking in Colorado all week in the aftermath of the shooting.

    Harteau said based on current information about the case, there was no justification for officer Mohamed Noor’s decision to shoot Damond, a 40-year-old bride-to-be and yoga instructor who had moved to the U.S. from Australia to be with her fiancée.

    Harteau submitted her resignation Friday in the wake of the fatal shooting at the request of Mayor Betsy Hodges, according to a statement from the city.


    Noor has refused to talk with police investigators since the July 15 incident.

    Noor is not talking (to investigators) but he has reportedly talked to friends in the Somali community. Time for a grand jury! Sure hope they keep him under surveillance. Too many Somalis simply disappear before they can appear in court when in legal trouble.

    Former Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann said Harteau has to accept a large part of the blame for putting an unqualified officer on the street.

    “Finally the female chief of Minneapolis police came out and said Justine Damond should still be alive. She said Mohammad Noor had no reason to shoot Justine,” Bachmann told WND. “He violated police policy and training. Noor refuses to cooperate with investigators. He refuses to give a statement.

    “Firing him isn’t enough, the question is whether a grand jury will be impaneled. Manslaughter charges should be considered,” she added.

    “Again, will the prosecutor and police department work to determine whether this was in fact a hate crime. Clearly it wasn’t premeditated, but was it a gut reaction of Mohammad Noor resulting from his cultural beliefs? What mosque did he attend? What are his beliefs?”

    Another mystery about what happened last Saturday night involves a missing two minutes from the official police log of the incident.

    Hohmann continues:

    As noted by a media outlet in Damond’s native Australia, the 9-1-1 tape reveals a “critical missing two minutes.”
    A timeline pieced together through the bride-to-be’s 911 calls and a newly released police incident report shows Damond was shot two minutes after police officers arrived at the alleyway behind her home.

    “What it doesn’t explain is what happened in those two crucial minutes that prompted officer Mohamed Noor to draw his gun, reach over his partner and discharge his weapon through the open window, delivering a fatal shot to Ms Damond’s abdomen,” reports News.com.au, an Australian outlet.

    For new readers!
    Don’t miss this post from 2011 where we first learned how so many Somalis ‘found their way’ to Minnesota. Hint! The US State Department hired Catholic, Lutheran and evangelical contractors*** to place them there because the welfare was so generous and as I later learned, some big industries needed cheap labor including a window company in Owatonna and poultry plants scattered around the state including near St. Cloud and Wilmer.

    ***Federal contractors/middlemen/lobbyists/community organizers paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities. At this minute they are sending ‘abstracts’ to Washington which are their personal wish lists and plans for who will be ‘welcomed’ to your towns for the upcoming fiscal year that begins October 1, 2017.

    Because their income is largely dependent on taxpayer dollars based on the number of refugees admitted to the US, the only way for real reform of how the US admits refugees is to remove the contractors from the process.

  2. It it truly appalling that these refugees/immigrants/aliens are allowed into our country under the cloak of religion and other “do good” sounding names all fueled by the acquisition of money…we need to know who the money grubbers are and close them down…this is the last straw in this immigrant allowing joke on the American people. Extensive vetting must go on and until they are vetted properly, NO ONE gets to come to the USA and put down roots. Trump is right! We are in severe danger of losing our freedom and our country!!! WAKE UP AMERICANS!!!
