First, on cowardly chickenshit politicians:
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said Wednesday that he does not
yet have enough evidence to file charges against a Minneapolis police
officer in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, blaming
investigators who “haven’t done their job.”
the comments during a union event after being confronted by activists,
who recorded the interaction. They asked Freeman why it has taken so
long for him to decide if Officer Mohamed Noor was justified in shooting
and killing Damond on July 15.
In the six-minute video, the activists approach Freeman at the
Wednesday event. After Freeman said he did not have the evidence to
charge Noor, blaming investigators for not doing their job, one man
said, “I don’t understand why this seems to be such a hard thing.”
question,” Freeman responded. “I have to prove beyond a reasonable
doubt, the moment he shot the gun he feared for his life, and he used
force because he thought he was going to be killed. But he won’t answer
my questions. … I can’t talk to her because she’s gone, and the other
cop just gave us [expletive]. So guess what, I’ve gotta figure out
angles of the shot, gun residues, reckless use of force experts. …
Translation: "Hey, don't blame me for not making a decision, it's THEIR fault!" And in that last paragraph, it sounds an awful lot like he's trying real hard to find a way to not indict the bastard, doesn't it?
Second, under the heading of 'PC at any cost',
The city of Minneapolis may fire its police psychology evaluator because his tests screened out too many minority candidates, despite already lowering psych evaluations far below the national standard.
The July police shooting of Justine Damond triggered the city to scrutinize its psychological standards for police, with many claiming they’d become lax. Psychiatrist Thomas Gratzer has run psych testing for the Minneapolis police for the past five years, and in that time, he has eliminated four of the five tests used to determine whether a candidate is fit to be an officer, APM reported Thursday. Now, Gratzer is facing firing not for gutting his standard, but for screening out too many minorities.
Think about that: they're deliberately not screening applicants as they should. Because 'not enough minorities pass'. Which means they don't give a damn about unqualified cops, and the damage they do, so long as they can claim they're being all progressive and inclusive in hiring them...
