Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau resigned Friday, just five days after one of the department’s officers shot an unarmed Australian woman who had just dialed 911 to report a possible crime outside her home.

Harteau resigned at the request of Minneapolis Democratic-Farmer Labor Party Mayor Betsy Hodges. “I’ve lost confidence in the chief’s ability to lead us further,” Hodges said in a statement Friday.

Justine Damond, a 40-year-old Australian woman and bride-to-be, was shot dead outside her home by responding officers to a 911 call she had placed. Officer Mohamed Noor reportedly fired his weapon from the passenger seat of his patrol car after being allegedly startled by a loud noise. He shot Damond as she approached the vehicle, according to his partner, officer Michael Harrity.

“I have decided to step aside to let a fresh set of leadership eyes see what more can be done for the MPD to be the best it can be,” Harteau said in a statement Friday.

    Political correctness has consequences…sometimes deadly ones.
    Under her ‘leadership’ they crowed about all the feel good vibes with an orgy of virtue-signaling of having a somoli police officer, who turns out to be a disasterous liability.

    Time to put bad cops in jail and concentrate on hiring good ones, PC BE DAMNED.

    This article makes absolutely no sense. The victim called about noise that frightened her and when the police arrived, he heard the noise as well but thought it was instigated by the victim and shot her without verifying.
    Why, then, does the chief have to resign? Do reporters get to write half a story because they’re too lazy to find out who, what, when, where, or why? Perhaps that’s so 80’s or something.

    I read another account of the events: the officers were engaged in a homosexual act and the woman surprised them. The muslim couldn’t leave a witness. I know it sounds “out there” — but it would certainly account for the bizarre “shoot across your partners face through a window at who ever it is”.

    Thanks for posting this. It would explain somethings. Was the police chief fired because she hired these two guys in the first place, I wonder. So sad for her soon to be family. Absolutely crazy, isn’t it?
