Unused body cameras raise questions in Minneapolis police shooting

Unused body cameras raise questions in Minneapolis police shooting

The Star Tribune reports that one of the responding officers opened fire through the driver's side window of his squad auto, fatally striking Justine.

With more questions than answers, family members and neighbors are left wondering why Minnesota police shot and killed an Australian woman who had called 911 over a possible assault. Both officers who were involved with the death have been placed on paid administrative leave.

The officers were wearing body cameras, but they were not turned on during the incident, the mayor said.

The woman was identified by family in local and Australian news reports as 40-year-old Justine Damond, a native Australian who studied to be a veterinarian in Sydney before moving to Minneapolis to be with her fiance. The BCA did confirm that an officer did fire his weapon, which was what killed Damond. Meanwhile, Ruszczyk can be seen in the below video, titled "Justine Damond 7 2 17". Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo told the Star Tribune that the body camera program is fully deployed within the department but did not offer an explanation about why there is no footage of the shooting.

"Did the police officers turn the cameras off?" is a yes/no question, the answer to which could give the mayor and public a measure of comfort, although that's not the primary mission of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, of course.

CDC sees drop in opioid prescriptions since 2010 peak
STEIN: And doctors are actually writing their patients prescriptions that last longer. Prescribe opioids only when benefits outweigh risks.

According to the woman's stepson, Zach Damond, she had called the police after hearing a noise near her home.

Ruszczyk was originally from Australia, though she was a United States citizen because her father holds USA citizenship, the source who knew her said.

"If anybody can help just call the police and demand answers", he said. Damond lived in the area with her fiancé and son, teaching meditation classes that her students say never failed to bring a little bit of joy into their day.

According to police sources, Noor shot across his partner and out the window of the squad auto, striking Damond.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office hasn't yet released the results of Damond's autopsy.

Minneapolis authorities have not released the woman's name.

"This killing shows us that no one is immune", one speaker said at the vigil.

"I'm so done with all this violence, it's so much bulls-t".

The Australian Department of Foriegn Affairs and Trade is providing consular assistance. One of the friends said, "This woman was a lovely light, she was a healer, she was loved, she should be alive". In videos posted to YouTube, she recalled moving to Minnesota for love.

They said the BCA would be releasing further information as soon as possible.
