The rule of law triumphs over social justice…

MPR News reports:  

A jury on Tuesday found former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor guilty on charges of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the killing of 911 caller Justine Ruszczyk.

This is believed to be the first time a police officer in Minnesota was found guilty of murder from shooting someone while on duty. Nationwide, such convictions are extremely rare.

I expected the jury to render a decision quickly in this case.  I’ll have another update posted tomorrow evening when more information is available.  This is also a great outcome for the civil suit lodged against Minneapolis.  There is much wailing, gnashing of teeth, and rending of garments at City Hall and MPD Headquarters this night.

Expect Leftist outrage and playing of the race/Islamophobia card.

NOTE: Scott Johnson of Powerline has been in the courtroom for the entire trial.  Go here for a brief pod cast–audio only–of his initial thoughts.
