It sure sounded like a cut-and-dry case. A woman bent over, conversing with police at the driver’s side window when the officer in the passenger seat pulled his weapon and shot her. It horrified Americans and spun the whole debate over #BlackLivesMatter on its head, all because Ruszczyk was white.
Months later, no one has been charged in what seemed like the biggest slam dunk out there.
Well, believe it or not, there’s not enough evidence.
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman told a group of union members Wednesday that he does not have enough evidence to decide yet whether he’ll file charges against Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor, and he blamed “investigators” for not doing their jobs.
Noor fatally shot Justine Ruszczyk from the passenger seat of his squad car through the driver’s side window after he and his partner, officer Matthew Harrity, responded to a 911 call on July 15.
Ruszczyk, known professionally as Justine Damond, had called police to report that she thought she’d heard a woman yell for help outside her home in Minneapolis’ Fulton neighborhood, telling the 911 operator she was worried someone was being attacked.
