Chicago (AFP) – Police in the US state of Minnesota were startled by a loud sound prior to shooting an Australian woman who had called them to report a possible assault, investigators revealed on Tuesday.
The state agency probing the fatal police shooting of Justine Damond, also known by her maiden name Justine Ruszczyk, interviewed one of the two officers who responded to her emergency call on Saturday night in Minneapolis.
It was the first time since the shooting that authorities offered more information about the circumstances, as community leaders and Damond’s family complained they had received few details.
Officer Matthew Harrity told investigators Tuesday that he had been “startled by a loud sound” near the squad car while responding to the call, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) said in a statement.
His partner, Officer Mohamed Noor, was in the passenger seat.
“Immediately afterward Ruszczyk approached the driver’s side window of the squad (car). Harrity indicated that Officer Noor discharged his weapon, striking Ruszczyk through the open driver’s side window,” the agency said.
BCA did not identify the sound, but an unidentified officer recorded on a police radio conversation published by Minnesota PoliceClips speculated it may have been fireworks that sounded like gun shots.
The officers’ body-worn cameras were not on during the incident. After the shooting, they provided medical aid until paramedics arrived, the BCA said.
The medical examiner’s office said Damond died of a gunshot wound to the abdomen. She was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the BCA.
Investigators appealed for witnesses to come forward.
– Family speaks out –
Damond, a 40-year-old meditation instructor and life coach, was an Australian national who had moved to the US to marry her fiance Don Damond, and had changed her name ahead of the marriage.
She had called Minneapolis police Saturday around 11:30 pm to report “what she believed was an active sexual assault occurring nearby,” Don Damond said on Monday.
“Sadly, her family and I have been provided with almost no additional information from law enforcement regarding what happened after police arrived.”
Speaking in Australia, her father John Ruszczyk on Tuesday called for justice.
“Justine was a beacon to all of us. We only ask that the light of justice shine down on the circumstances of her death,” he said.
Authorities found no weapons at the scene, though they recovered Damond’s cell phone.
“I understand why so many people have so many questions at this point,” Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau said late Monday.
“I have many of the same questions and it is why we immediately asked for an external and independent investigation.”
– Officer ‘a caring person’ –
Noor, who has been with the Minneapolis police force for 21 months, declined investigators’ requests for an interview, the BCA said. Officers are not required to participate in a BCA investigation.
In a statement, Noor’s attorney Tom Plunkett called the officer “a caring person with a family he loves and he empathizes with the loss others are experiencing.”
Plunkett added that the ongoing investigation prevented the officer from saying any more about the incident.
The shooting was the latest high-profile case in which police fired fatal shots.
Most of those cases involve white police officers and African American victims. In this case, Noor is Somali American, while Damond was white.
Congressman Keith Ellison, who represents Damond’s district in the US House of Representatives, tied her case with others such as that of black motorist Philando Castile, killed last year near Minneapolis during a traffic stop.
“We need to confront the reality of so many unarmed people killed by the same officers who swear an oath to protect us,” Ellison said in a statement.
“Justine’s death shows no one should assume ‘officer-involved shootings’ only happen in a certain part of town or to certain kinds of people.”

Jerusalem District Police Commander Major-General Yoram Halevy ordered that the Temple Mount be closed to Jewish worshipers and visitors on Wednesday morning.
The order came after a group of Jewish visitors breached the rules of conduct by bringing sacred books to the site and trying to pray there. After one of the individuals was warned, another took out a holy book and the group was removed by security forces, Haaretz reported.
The Temple Mount, known as the Ḥaram al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary) to Muslims, has been the subject of violent clashes since Sunday, with Palestinians protesting Israel’s placement of metal detectors at entrances.
The security measure was implemented after two Israeli border police officers were killed in an attack at the site on Friday.
A Palestinian government statement called the measure “null and void” and a “violation of the sanctity of the Al Aqsa Mosque.”
A third night of clashes took place at a gate outside the Temple Mount on Tuesday night, with Israeli police stating that a group of Muslim worshipers “started throwing rocks and bottles” at officers who were stationed in the Old City, the Times of Israel reported.
Officers used rubber bullets and stun grenades to break up the clashes, the news outlet added, citing police.
Ruptly footage appears to show people running away from the area.
The Palestinian Red Crescent said that 34 people were injured, including 14 that needed hospitalization. One person suffered a serious chest injury, a spokesperson said.
Two officers were lightly injured in the clashes, according to Israeli police.
Palestinian demonstrators are expected to hold additional protests over the placement of metal detectors on Wednesday, in what the Fatah party, led by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, has dubbed a “Day of Rage.”
The planned demonstrations prompted Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat to remind demonstrators that their anger should be directed elsewhere.
“I suggest to the demonstrators to turn their rage at the terrorists who created the need for this [the placement of metal detectors], and not the police,” he wrote on Facebook.
The Temple Mount is holy to Jews as the site of their ancient temple, and to Muslims as the site of where the Prophet Muhammad is believed to have risen.
Remember yesterday’s story with all those Saudis enraged by a beautiful woman known only as “Model Khulood” wearing a miniskirt through the desert?
Well unfortunately, according to RT they caught her and arrested her, knowing how the Saudi police operates, she will probably end up dead, killed in jail, such a sad fate for no reason whatsoever.
She didn’t do anything wrong and those people are just savages for arresting her for wearing a skirt and for being beautiful and the saddest part is that she isn’t even one of their own, I mean yeah, she is a Saudi citizen and all but she’s so whitish, if you would see her on the streets of Europe you wouldn’t be able to distinct her from the native white Europeans and this is what is upsetting even more because so many of our people end up dead at the hand of those savages.
She should have ran away and came here to Europe. We would have gladly welcomed her, after all we welcome all those millions of ugly looking single men, we would have gladly welcomed this fine specimen of a woman.
Here’s a close up photo of her face. Yeap she definitely passes as a white woman. Damn such a sad story! Come on Saudis, send her over to Europe, she’s a shame for your country, you don’t really need her, we need her!

Last year, a 19-year-old woman, who asked to be referred to as Jasmine, shocked the nation by stating that approximately 30 police officers from departments around the Bay Area sexually assaulted her or had some sort of sexual relations with her. Since then, seven of these officers were charged and several higher-ups either left or were fired.
The case is still being discussed in the media because a settlement was recently reached, and just last week the Oakland police department held a private ceremony honouring many officers caught up in the scandal.
Jasmine was apparently abused as a 12-year-old and then forced into the underground world of sex slavery. She worked as a sex slave for many years, and then finally broke free at the age of 16 with an Oakland police officer, or so she had hoped. Unfortunately, the cycle of abuse continued for Jasmine, but it wasn’t just with one police officer.
You may assume that these individuals who were supposed to be protecting her have since been put behind bars, but this is not the case. Though some faced charges, the city agreed to settle Jasmine’s claim to the tune of $1 million with no admission of liability. What’s worse is that rather than firing, counselling or demoting these officers, the Oakland police actually held a secret ceremony on July 14 (with no media coverage) celebrating many of the police officers accused of mishandling the case.
Details About the Oakland Police Sex Scandal
The scandal was unearthed in September 2015 when an Oakland police officer committed suicide and left a note that detailed he had a sexual relationship with a young sex worker. The scandal broke wide open shortly afterwards when Jasmine came forward and told a reporter that she had sex with over a dozen members of the Oakland Police Department in addition to other officials working at other law enforcement agencies in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.
Her abuse began in February 2015, so keep in mind she was underage. She met one of the cops when he saved her life from her former pimp, but soon he introduced her to other cops and they began trafficking her amongst their ranks. According to state law, three of the officers committed statutory rape, many participated in human trafficking, and all of them knowingly solicited prostitution (source).
One officer was sentenced to three years of probation and was told he can have no contact with Jasmine, and another officer’s case is set to be dismissed next year if he successfully completes his probation. Two more officers are facing charges for having oral sex with Jasmine as a minor. Police Chief Sean Whent resigned from his position just after Jasmine was interviewed.
The city decided to settle her claim at $989,000. Though the Oakland police department has faced significant public scrutiny, it does seem a little like they’re being let “off the hook” when it comes to the judiciary system. Many of the officers accused will see little to no punishment for their crimes, despite the pain they caused Jasmine.
“The settlement occurred with no admission of liability, but obviously, if you pay $1 million, you figure you got some responsibility,” civil rights attorney John Burris, who represented Jasmine, said in a statement.
In addition, some of these officers are literally being rewarded, even after they allegedly engaged in misconduct or mishandled this particular case, or were involved with other sex scandals. Oakland police held a “secret ceremony” in celebration for several officers who received promotions and awards for their “bravery and service.” However, the officers were welcomed by two dozen angry protestors, as some of the officers being honoured were those involved with Jasmine’s case.
One of the officers, Roland Holmgren, was promoted to captain, and he was accused of “mishandling” Jasmine’s case. This isn’t the first Oakland police scandal he’s been caught up in; according to the East Bay Express, he’s been involved in a number of police misconduct scandals over the past 20 years. And Holmgren wasn’t the only one involved with the case who was awarded, as several other officers were either promoted or rewarded for their services, despite having either turned a blind eye to this case or been involved with misconduct or mishandling it.
In May 2017, Jasmine’s lawyer, Mr. Burris, actually called the officers a “cabal” that “took advantage of a young woman.”
“People were passing her around as if she was a kickball or something,” Burris said.
This sounds eerily similar to the types of activities that take place at elite sex parties, especially since he literally referred to them as a cabal. It seems as though the judiciary system often has difficulty punishing those with authority, giving them privileged treatment and allowing them to bend the rules, even if they are known sexual offenders and predators.
If we can’t trust law enforcement to actually do their jobs and properly investigate situations like this, even if they implicate their colleagues or bosses, then who can we trust? The sad part is that the government is no stranger to these types of scandals, as it’s at the very core of the establishment.
The U.S. Government and the Cabal’s Ties to Sex Rings
There has been a lot of speculation lately on child sex rings being used by the U.S. government. You may be familiar with the PizzaGate scandal, which allegedly unearthed a very high-level elitist global pedophile ring the U.S. government was involved in.
It emerged when Wikileaks released tens of thousands of emails from the former White House Chief of Staff under Bill Clinton, Jon Podesta, who also served as Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager. It’s because of these emails that many claimed Jon Podesta was a part of these child trafficking rings as well.
Below is a video of award winning American journalist Ben Swann explaining the Pizzagate controversy in detail:
This isn’t the first time people were concerned over sexual abuse by government officials. Ted Gunderson, former FBI special agent and head of their L.A. office, worked to uncover years’ worth of information on high-level pedophilia, sexual abuse, and satanic rituals performed by the government and the elite (or the cabal). In my opinion, Ted Gunderson is a wonderful place to start your research on this subject. You can read more about that in our CE article here.
Former U.S. representative Cynthia McKinney also knew about the government’s relationship to human trafficking, and she actually addressed it in 2005. She grilled Donald Rumsfeld on military contractor DynCorp’s child trafficking business of selling women and children (source).
Another individual involved in high-level trafficking was Jeffrey E. Epstein, a member of the financial elite infamous on Wall Street. In 2009, he pleaded guilty to charges of soliciting prostitution from girls as young as fourteen. He served just over a year in jail and became a registered high-risk sex offender.
According to former U.S. State Department official Steve Pieczenik, the Clintons and many more “have been a major part and participant of what’s called the Lolita Express, which is a plane owned by Mr. Jeff Epstein, a wealthy multi-millionaire who flies down to the Bahamas and allows Bill and Hillary Clinton to engage in sex with minors — that is called Pedophilia.” (source)
Prominent names who boarded the Lolita Express include former President Bill Clinton, Naomi Campbell, Kevin Spacey, Prince Andrew, Larry Summers, and other political figures, all of whom are listed on the flight logs. Even the current U.S. President, Donald Trump, has ties to Epstein, and was in fact accused of raping a 13-year-old girl at multiple different elite sex parties with Epstein. You can see the full logs here.
“Bill Clinton . . . associated with a man like Jeffrey Epstein, who everyone in New York, certainly within his inner circles, knew was a pedophile,” explained Conchita Sarnoff, an investigative journalist who, despite being bribed to stay silent, risked her life to expose the brutal reality of human trafficking. Sarnoff also wrote a book on the Epstein case called TrafficKing. “Why would a former president associate with a man like that?” Sarnoff asked. To read more about Epstein’s case, check out our CE article here.
Numerous victims involved in elite sex rings and occult sex rituals have come forward, exposing high-level corruption in regards to human sex trafficking and pedophilia. One of the more recent victims to come forward is a woman named Kendall who was sold at birth into a powerful, high-level international sex ring. You can read more about her story in our CE article here.
It’s clear that sex scandals are occurring left, right, and centre within the establishment. We need to stop placing authority on a pedestal so we can see that this type of preferential treatment will not help us achieve peace in society. Just because you’re a higher-up in the government or within a well-respected institution doesn’t give you the right to commit these violent acts, and our judiciary system desperately needs to reflect this.
