n the wake of the Somali Muslim cop who shot dead an unarmed woman in cold blood, Mayor Betsy Hodges urges Muslims to file hate crime claims.
Here on Facebook, she directed Muslims on how to file hate crimes:
To the Somali community: I want you to know that you are a valued and appreciated part of Minneapolis. I stand with you and support you. The
strength and beauty of the Somali and East African communities are a vital part of what makes Minneapolis so strong and beautiful. I am grateful to be your neighbor.
This week a Somali police officer, Officer Mohamed Noor, shot and killed a woman under circumstances we don’t yet comprehend. Justine Damond’s death was tragic and awful for everyone. And I want to be very clear that Officer Noor, a fully trained officer in the Minneapolis Police Department, won’t be treated differently than any
other officer. Justine’s death is a tragedy for our city. 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
complaint at http://www.minneapolismn.gov/civil…/discrimination-complaint
Mayor Betsy Hodges changed Police Department Policy to recruit and hire Somali Muslims, says “that effort will continue.”
It was Mayor Betsy Hodges who instituted hiring policies in the police department to prioritize the hiring of Somali Muslims. This at a time when more than 22 young men from the community had left the state to join al-Shabab in Somalia, and roughly a dozen people have left in recent years to join the jihad in Syria, including the Islamic State group. In November, nine men were sentenced on terror charges for plotting unsuccessfully to join the group and fight in Syria. Separately, a 20-year-old Somali-American went on a stabbing rampage at a shopping mall in St. Cloud last September, wounding 10 people before an off-duty police officer fatally shot him.
Muslims are not a special class, superior class. That is the sharia. This is America.
Hodges said “that effort will continue. The Somali officers on the force are seen as community role models, and are among the success stories of the immigrants in Minnesota.”
