Woman Who Called 911 Killed by Police in Minneapolis, Body Cams Turned Off

“It’s OK to cry, it’s OK to scream,” she said. “Share what you’re feeling.”

Leslie Redmond of the Minneapolis NAACP said she and other members of the NAACP who attended “stand in solidarity with the family.”

Nekima Levy-Pounds, one of three mayoral candidates who attended, said, “I hope and pray this is a wake-up call for the community to stop being divided by race and socioeconomic status … for treating everybody with respect.”

Dustin Johnson and his wife, Roz, live across the street from Justine and Don Damond. They saw the flashing lights and walked over to see police trying to resuscitate Damond as she lay on the ground.

Filming Cops was started in 2010 as a conglomerative blogging service documenting police abuse. The aim isn’t to demonize the natural concept of security provision as such, but to highlight specific cases of State-monopolized police brutality that are otherwise ignored by traditional media outlets.

      Accidental? What? You claim the cop in the passenger seat always has his gun pointed at his partner? WTF dude?

    On an active call and no cameras. You know if cops EVER had to explain things this one would be kind of interesting. I’m sure they have already somehow been cleared but will receive a nice long fully paid vacay as they pretend they are doing a “full transparent and impartial investigation”.

    Wow!……they won’t release the cops’ statements until they are sure there is no surveillance or cell phone video.

    The body cameras were not on. Half a sentence later. The body cameras were not on.

    Yeah, we get it, the body cameras were not turned on. Probably because they had not even gotten out of the car yet to turn the cameras on. I have no idea why this woman was shot, and I doubt there is any information that will come out that will make this justified. I wonder if there is any footage from the body cameras?
