Cop charged with murder

Or maybe the title should have been "piece of shit cop charged with murder".

Officer who fatally shot Justine Damond is charged with murder
BY DANIELLA SILVA AND CORKY SIEMASZKO



A police officer who mistakenly shot and killed an Australian woman last July in Minneapolis was indicted on a charge of third-degree murder Tuesday, and the city's top prosecutor blamed "uncooperative" cops for slowing down the investigation.
Officer Mohamed Noor was also charged with second-degree manslaughter in connection with the death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, according to records from the Hennepin County Jail. Bail was set at $500,000.



Mike Freeman, the Hennepin County attorney, blamed stonewalling by the Minneapolis police for the delay. "This would have been done a good deal quicker if we had gotten cooperation," he said at a news conference.
Asked for comment, the police union declined to address Freeman's claims.

Sad that the police stonewall the investigation but not surprising.  That is why the percentage of the population that trust the police has fallen.  At the very least the officer royally screwed up and was criminally negligent but the police stonewalling makes it seem like it was much more than that.
