Bride-to-Be, #JustineDamond, ย Calls 911 & Ends Up Dead

Justine Damond, Facebook


Justine Damond, a 40 year-old yoga and meditation instructor, was just a few weeks away from getting married. This should have been one of the happiest times in her life, yet it turned tragic near midnight on Saturday when she called the police reporting that she heard a noise in an alleyway behind her home. 

According to the New York Daily News, she met the police outside while wearing her pajamas and that’s when things went south. An officer in the police car shot and killed unarmed Damond. 

A blonde-haired, white woman is not your average case of police brutality in America, as we have seen unarmed black men and women killed over and over again and not one cop convicted or held accountable for it. 

Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, Philando Castile, Trayvon Martin, and most recently DeJuan Guillory are just a few of those black men and women who died at the hands of those who were sworn in to “protect and serve”. 

Apparently, the police car’s dash camera did not capture the moments that lead to Daymond’s death and the officer’s body camera’s were shut off. 

According to KARE, the officer who pulled the trigger was Mohamed Noor, who came to the United States from Somali at a young age and joined the Minneapolis Police Department in March 2015.

Noor’s lawyer, Tom Plunkett, issued a statement.

No details have been given at this time as to why the police felt it was necessary to shoot Damond. She Was known for being a spiritual healer and was from Australia, but had relocated to Minneapolis.
Both of the officers involved are on paid administrative leave which isn’t a surprise compared to the similar brutalities listed above. 

A report by NBC News stated that Daymond’s family issued the following statement:

“This is a very difficult time for our family. We are trying to come to terms with this tragedy and to understand why this has happened,” read the statement. 

Don Damond, told reporters Monday that he and the Ruszczyk (Damond’s real last name) family were heartbroken.

While families and friends of Damond are looking for answers, people have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Right is right and wrong is wrong regardless of race, gender, or status. This instance keeps reoccurring across the country and must come to an end because too many lives are being taken by those who are supposed to be there to help us, not kill us. 

UPDATE The audio transcripts of Damond’s 911 calls have been released:

Wth? According to Walmart, the N-word is a color now!ย 

It was brought to my attention in a Facebook group that I am part of, that Walmart has a wig cap for sale in the color “N*gger Brown”. I clicked the link and sure enough it was right there plain as day. 


Product LINK: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Jagazi-Natural-s-Full-Cap-Weaving-Net-Durable-Stretchy-Weaving-Net-Weaving-Cap-Wig-Cap-Size-M-Nigger-Brown/886390492

Walmart has since made the product not available. 


@Walmart, what the hell is going on? Do employees even read over the descriptions and approve them before they are LIVE for the world? If not, y’all need to tighten up on that and if so well someone needs to be held accountable because this is unacceptable. 

#DeJuanGuillory, Unarmed Man Shot by Police in Louisiana – What we know… *Updated 7/8


Unarmed #DejuanGullory (27), a father of three, was shot in the back by an Evangeline Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy in Mamou, Louisiana near 4:10 am on Thursday, July 6th. . 

There have been conflicting stories since the news broke early in the morning. 

According to WAFB, Channel 9 News (Website)

According to LSP, the deputy responded to an attempted burglary call in the town of Mamou Thursday morning at roughly 4:10 a.m. 

When the deputy got to the scene, he found Dejuan Guillory. The release did not say whether Guillory was suspected of committing the alleged attempted burglary.  
“Once contact was made, an altercation between Guillory and the deputy occurred,” states a press release. “During the altercation, Guillory was shot.”  
Guillory was pronounced dead at the scene.  

During the struggle, the deputy was injured and was taken to a local hospital. Officials did not provide details regarding his injury.  
The deputy, whose name was not provided, is reportedly in stable condition.
Later in the evening, investigators with LSP arrested Dequine E. Brown, 21, of Church Point in connection with the case. Officials say Brown was with Dejuan Guillory during the incident. She is charged with attempted first degree murder of a police officer and was booked into the Evangeline Parish Jail.  

Then later today this was released on Pinpoint News:

Mamou, LA- Ville Platte Deputy Paul Holden LaFluer was the officer involved in the shooting this morning.

According to the family, the girlfriend of Deputy LaFluer had been having an affair with Guillory.

Between 4-5am, Guillory and the girlfriend of LaFluer were out riding Guilloryโ€™s 4-wheeler to catch frogs; frogging.

Itโ€™s reported that the officer sustained injuries in the scuffle that ensued but no gunshot as originally reported. Guillory was unarmed although his fists are considered deadly (fighter).

The family of DeJuan Guillory viewed his body and said that DeJuan Guillory was shot 4 times in the back. They saw NO exit or entry wounds on the chest.

It is speculated by family members that because Guillory has a record and has recently served time for attempting to stealing an ATM, family members believe police said the deputy was there to investigate a burglary.

Heโ€™s beloved in the community by all races. All-star athlete, father, and business owner, Guillory fell on hard times and took to crime when he was younger. He turned his life around.

He was seen last night in a good mood from being paid on a big concrete project. His family and friends are speaking out saying he had no need to steal anything.

There is an outpouring of support for him on social media but the local media is not reporting on any details other than him being a possible suspect.

Community members in Evangeline Parish have stressed that their parish has a reputation for being the most corrupt department in the state.

In an emotional post by Guillory’s sister, she denies the “attempted burglary” story and says her brother was riding a four wheeler with a friend unarmed when he was shot.
