Woman Shot Dead By Minneapolis Police After Calling To Report A Crime

BY Herschel Smith
2 years, 2 months ago

They don’t limit their malfeasance to dogs.  Humans are just as good a target as animals.

An Australian woman engaged to marry an American next month was shot and killed by a Minneapolis cop Saturday night after calling police to report an incident, leading her family and investigators to question what caused the deadly shooting.

The woman, identified as Justine Damond, 40, was killed in the late-night shooting in the city’s Fulton neighborhood, Fox 9 reported. She reportedly had called to report an assault.

“Two Minneapolis police officers responded to a 911 call of a possible assault just north of the 5100 block of Washburn Avenue S. just before 11:30 p.m. Saturday,” the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said in a news release. “At one point, an officer fired their weapon, fatally striking a woman.”

Police were trying to determine whether any video of the incident exists. The body cameras of the officers involved were not activated, according to police. No weapon was found at the scene.

And another report.

The family of a woman who was shot to death by Minneapolis police is making a desperate plea for information about the last moments of her life.

Justine Ruszczyk called 911 on Saturday night to report a possible sexual assault in an alley near her home, her fiancé, Don Damond, said in a news conference Monday.

Two police officers responded and one of them killed Ruszczyk. She died of a gunshot wound to the abdomen, an autopsy revealed.

Otherwise, police still haven’t explained how, or why the shooting occurred, Damond said.

Sadly, her family and I have been provided with almost no additional information from law enforcement regarding what happened after police arrived,” a tearful Damond said as he struggled for composure.

When are people going to realize it’s never in their best interests to involve the police in anything?

    The cop was a Somali. An affirmative-action savage with a license to kill.

    The pigs are ALL trained to murder and to lie. This is what your extorted tax dollars are being used for, to oppress you and murder your family members. Pigs are a domestic terrorist organization, let that sink in a bit. They are the enemy of all Americans and they cry croc tears about how everyone hates them. Open season when CW2 commences.

    I’ll withhold judgment until the verified facts of the incident are available, but intially, it looks like the philosophy of not my people, not my problem is vindicated once again, especially if it involves dealing with armed government agents. Or, any government agents, really.

    Which is pretty sad; we shouldn’t have to avoid coming to someone’s aid because of the fear of negative consequences from the government. That will turn us into a nation of isolated individuals which does not bode well for resolving the problems which confront us.

    Good God; if the reporting is accurate that the officer fired through the drivers door from the passenger seat, the other officer must have had blood running out of his ears afterwards. Anything short of this woman approaching the squad car with a raised SBR, I say throw the book at him.

    He should have never been a cop.
    He should have never been in Our country.
    The ignorant chimp should have never pulled his gun.

    If the killer is not prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and found guilty and sent to prison, and if the City is not sued with a verdict big enough to bankrupt that fucking hellhole, and if the Chief of Police is not fired then this sets a precedence that will not be overturned.

    This clearly shows that it Us against Them. Prepare to defend yourself.

    According to fake news cnn, Justine Ruszczyk loved her some Australian style gun control (and of course, cnn used this incident to push gun control). Maybe she did and maybe she didn’t, but it would be a bit ironic. A person from Australia who thought only the police and military should have guns, and to be shot and killed by a cop.

    I guess there weren’t any household pets around for target practice. What happened to her is horrible. Hey Minneapolis, something smells real bad in your department. You need to take out the trash. And then take a shower, because you all smell like crap.

    Some light reading, links to the victim as well. I thought this was particularly outrageous.

    “KTSP also reported some of the same details, adding that Damond was shot multiple times.”

    If I were to investigate this I would want to know if the sexual assault she was reporting was alleged to have been committed by a muz or a Somali. The shooting would then make more sense as the “cop” is simply following sharia law and protecting his own or if not muz is loyal to his “nation” of birth. Is his partner white/muz/black/christian/spanish/atheist? Of course we are not allowed to investigate anything from these perspectives. But not to worry, she died for America’s new god, all hail diversity and the ongoing invasion.

    Protected and Served. Next.

    ALCON,

    Several years ago at OH-Dark-Thirty one autumn morning I was walking my hound, on a rural, public road before heading to the gym. Heading for me at a high rate of speed is a vehicle. I take my Surefire and flash the asshole as a warning there are living creatures in his path.. He veers, goes on by and then comes back….”What’s your fucking problem ? he demands of me.

    Long story short….he gets out of his car, attacks me and I plant my yellow, Don’t Tread On Me coffee mug center-mass, in his kisser ! Down he goes, “You split my lip” he whines. He gets back in his car. Thirty minutes later the local Staatspolizei are pounding on my door. I answer. They accuse me of being the bad guy when they ask me “Why didn’t you call us ?” They put the onus on me as being a criminal deviate for defending myself because I didn’t “call” them. I answer their question with “Why ? I took care of the situation.” With that I get charged with summary harassment. I go to county court and the Democratic hack, female judge tells me “You are bigger than he (my assailant) is.” Finds me guilty.

    Moral of this story….the scum of government demands you tell them EVERYTHING, every day, all the time. You are no longer free to defend yourself or exercise your judgement without asking permission from the Only Ones. You are the bad guy unless you notify the badged thugs of your engagement with evil.

    That described incident above, opened my eyes to the tyranny of the Amerikan police state and their accomplices, the courts. Since then, I would not urinate down a badged thugs throat if his lungs were on fire ! For me, until the day I leave this earth….

    There Are No Good Cops !

    Who is more deserving of a meeting with the Tree of Liberty….the scum Somali wearing the badge of an Amerikan, “Enforcer” thug ? Or the scum of government, politicians and unelected bureaucrats, who:

    1. Let the moslem into fUSA ?
    2. The police authorities who selected this Somali POS to uphold the Constitution of fUSA ?

    This is what the scum of government is giving white, Christian, traditional Americans. Globalism. Get used to it.

    Make sure you get to the polls next election and vote. Hahahahahaha !

    “VOTE” !

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha…..
