Continuing the tradition of ignoring the professionals until Bad Things happen…
Psychiatrists and training officers voiced concerns about a former Minneapolis police officer’s fitness for duty long before he fatally shot an Australian woman according to court documents. Former Officer Mohamed Noor is charged with third degree murder and second degree manslaughter in the July 2017 shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, who had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in an alley near her south Minneapolis home.
KARE reports that Hennepin County prosecutors filed documents revealing Noor was flagged by two psychiatrists during a pre-hiring evaluation in early 2015. They said he seemed unable to handle the stress of regular police work and exhibited an unwillingness to deal with people.
I have so many questions…

Police say they’re trying to learn why a gunman carrying a large amount of ammunition began shooting in a downtown Cincinnati high-rise building, killing three people and wounding two others before four officers all opened fire on him.
Police Chief Eliot Isaac says they will study footage from the officers’ body cameras and security from the 30-story building that headquarters Fifth Third Bancorp. Police say the suspect had never worked at Fifth Third and don’t have any information linking him to other businesses in the building.

In a case involving a professor who wanted to carry a gun on MU’s campus, a Boone County Circuit Court judge ruled Wednesday that the campus ban on firearms doesn’t violate state statute.
The case dates back to 2015 when MU School of Law professor Royce Barondes sued the University of Missouri System over its policy prohibiting the concealed carry of firearms.
The state statute in question, 571.030, deals with the unlawful possession of weapons, according to previous Missourian reporting.

Where i’m from, we like guns. They are as much a part of our story as Jesus, “Roll Tide,” and monograms. Even if you’ve never shot one, you appreciate the romance.
That appreciation begins when you’re young. Here is what I remember: November air, stadium lights, cut grass. We cheerleaders would stay after school to practice our halftime routine. On Friday nights, we’d crowd in front of the small bathroom mirrors to touch up our makeup—glitter eyeshadow if it was a big game—and emerge in a fog of hair spray.
The cheerleaders who were most envied were the ones who had their alarm clock set for 4 a.m. the next day. It meant they had a boyfriend who was taking them hunting, and that meant things were getting serious. When you were 15 or 16 or 17 years old, all you wanted to get was serious.
