A vocal critic of radical Islam is convinced that the City of Minneapolis is trying to cover up its actions after the 2017 shooting death of a woman by a Somali-born police officer.
Justine Damond was shot by Mohamed Noor through the driver's side window of the police car while he was seated in the passenger side.
Damond had called 911 about what she thought sounded like a sexual assault.
Noor, who has refused to explain why he shot Damond when she approached the squad car, is charged with third-degree murder and second degree manslaughter.
The victim's family, which has filed suit, is demanding answers and Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch tells OneNewsNow there are many unanswered questions.
"The real story in this seems to be that this cop was hired because he was a Muslim, and because the Minneapolis Police Department and City of Minneapolis wanted to show how wonderful multi-culture they were," Spencer complains.
Spencer and Jihad Watch have tracked Damond's murder, documenting how Noore was "fast-tracked" through the police academy and accumulated three complaints against him in two years.
Spencer alleges the cover-up is the failure of police officials to intervene and then attempt to hide a multi-cultural policy that would be "obvious to the world" after it resulted in a fatal shooting.
"So we can only hope that this lawsuit from the family will indeed bring all of that out," Spencer says, "and make it clear just how risky it is for the general public for police officers to be hired basis of their ethnic or religious identity and not on the basis of merit alone."
