Minnesota Mayor Betsy Hodges has urged Muslims to file hate crime reports, according to her own Facebook page. Illogically, the reason she is making this recommendation is because a Muslim cop killed an unarmed white woman for no reason. There are no incidents of hate crimes against the Muslim community at the time.
You can’t make this stuff up.
In her comment Friday, she wrote: We cannot compound that tragedy by turning to racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia. It is unjust and ridiculous to assert that an entire community be held responsible for the actions of one person. That will not be tolerated in Minneapolis. If you are experiencing discrimination, you can file a

Hodges is the person who instituted a policy of hiring based on race. She is the one who kept an incompetent Somali officer on the force and she plans to keep doing it.
According to the Star Tribune, she said, “I’ve had more than one meeting with folks in the Somali community, and they are very eager to have more Somali police officers,” Hodges said. “And what I say is, ‘If we’re going to have more, you have to apply, and you have to ask people to apply.’ ”
Applicants need to be hired based on competence, not according to their race. Muslims should be treated as equals, not as a special, protected class. Islamophobia is fake news.
The Jihadist salute?
Pamela Geller noticed something else. Look at these men are giving the one finger salute which stands for Allah is the one true God. However, it has been taken over by jihadists from Osama bin Laden to ISIS.
The cyclist has been found, has video
The witness, who was seen bicycling east on W. 51st Street immediately before the shooting and who stopped and watched officers perform CPR “has been cooperative and provided an interview today,” according to a news release from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
The Star Tribune reports that the witness filmed part of the encounter and the aftermath. That’s according to a confidential witness.
Noor’s attorney has not even called authorities back and Noor won’t give a statement.
Noor’s partner, Officer Harrity told Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigators they were driving south through the alley between Washburn and Xerxes avenues S. with the squad lights turned off. At the moment they reached the end of the alley toward 51st Street he heard a “loud sound” and that Damond approached the driver’s side window of the squad car “immediately afterward.” Noor, who was in the passenger seat, fired past Harrity through the open driver’s side window, striking Damond in the abdomen. She died 20 minutes later.
Authorities are now suggesting the victim could have been on a sleep medication or some type of drug, which has outraged her family who said she would never touch a drug.
