Somali Muslim Cop Who Shot Woman Was Hired AFTER Being Found ‘Unable to Handle Stress’ of Job

Somali Muslim Cop Who Shot Woman Was Hired AFTER Being Found ‘Unable to Handle Stress’ of Job, by Robert Spencer.

Identity politics kills. If there is any lesson to be drawn from the killing of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, that is it. The city of Minneapolis was so eager to have a Somali Muslim police officer on the force that it hired a man who had been found incompetent to hold the job. Further, it did not fire him even when he proved that he was indeed unfit to be a cop.

Fox News has reported that “the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond once put a gun to a driver’s head during a traffic stop and sometimes ignored calls, according to court filings indicating that psychiatrists and training officers voiced concerns about his fitness for duty.”

Not only that, but “[Mohamed] Noor was flagged by two psychiatrists during a pre-hiring evaluation in early 2015. The psychiatrists said he seemed unable to handle the stress of regular police work and exhibited an unwillingness to deal with people.”

The psychiatrists added: “Noor was more likely than other candidates to become impatient with others over minor infractions, have trouble getting along with others, to be more demanding and to have a limited social support network. The psychiatrists said he ‘reported disliking people and being around them.’” …

Identity hire Somali Muslim police officer who killed her

The Minneapolis Police Department and city officials wanted Mohamed Noor to succeed so badly, he was placed on and graduated from a fast-track program to get onto the force in the first place. He was the first Somali Muslim on the Minneapolis police force; in 2016, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges expressed her excitement about that fact: “I want to take a moment to recognize Officer Mohamed Noor, the newest Somali officer in the Minneapolis Police Department. …”

Hodges wasn’t excited because Mohamed Noor had the skills necessary to become a fine police officer. She was only excited because he represented a religious and ethnic group that she was anxious to court.

His competence as a police officer was always secondary to his ethnicity and religion.
