After murder charge in Justice Damond case, movement against police terror demands justice for all

By staff

Minneapolis, MN — On March 20, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced charges against former Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor for the murder of Justine Damond. That same night, Justice for Justine Damond and the rest of the Twin Cities anti-police crimes movement came together to demand #Justice4All with a rally of around 100 people. March 21 was Noor’s first appearance in court.

According to Sam Sanchez, of the Twin Cities Coalition for Justice 4 Jamar (TCC4J), “Today at Mohamed Noor’s first hearing, the defense had the audacity to ask for him to be released on his own recognizance. They stated that the charges would be hard to prove. Justine Damond was murdered, it’s a fact. It looks like the defense and the injustice system are preparing for a not guilty verdict! Now is the time to fight, join us this Friday! We will stand-up and fight back to say #StopPoliceCrimes and #Justice4All.”

TCC4J holds that Mohamed Noor is guilty for the murder of Justine Damond, just like officers Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze are guilty for the murder of Jamar Clark.

The TCC4J demands justice for all victims of police crimes. Along with other anti-police terror organizations, the TCC4J is holding an emergency rally for all families and friends who had a loved one's life stolen by police violence. The rally is set for Friday, March 23, 5 p.m. at the Hennepin County Government Center, 300 S. 6th Street, in downtown Minneapolis.

The protest is endorsed by Black Lives Matter Minnesota, Black Saint Paul, Blue Lies Matter, Communities United Against Police Brutality, Justice for Cordale Handy, Justice for Darren Jahnke, Justice for Justine Damond Ruszczyk, Justice For Phil Quinn, Justice4MarcusGolden, Native Lives Matter, and The New North.
