Minneapolis Police Shoot Unarmed Woman In Pajamas ‐ With Bodycams Off
[HotAir] The Twin Cities law enforcement community finds itself in another deadly shooting controversy just days after St. Anthony police offered a buyout to an officer acquitted in the Philando Castile shooting last year [see update]. Late Saturday night, a woman who had called Minneapolis police to report suspicious noises in the area got shot and killed while talking to the responding officers. Justine Damond, an immigrant from Australia, was unarmed at the time — and the body cams that Minneapolis police promised would keep everyone accountable had been inexplicably turned off:

#9  Or they weren't required to have either the dash cam or body cams on based on the circumstances, and events happened too quickly for them to switch.

#8  Or corrupt cops involved in corrupt activity.

#7  My guess is they showed up and the crime was long over and they were flirting and showing off which is why the bodycams were off. Then the idiot in the passenger seat discharged his weapon by accident.

#6  And once the dust has cleared and we find out what really did happen, both cops should be summarily discharged from the force for having the body cams off. This is EXACTLY the type of situation that body cams were supposed to be present for, and these officers did the force a huge disservice (even if found innocent of the shooting) by not having video evidence of what took place.

#5  Shot fired from the passenger seat and into the victim outside the driver-side door--that's really a crazy scenario.

#4  Not just he bodycams. The Dashcam was off too, which means not even audio. And the shooter was Mohamed Noor.

After the Castile BS, this is not looking good for the Twin Cities PD.

#1  The headline makes it sound like the police were wearing pajamas, and had left their body cams with their regular uniforms.
