To the Somali community: I want you to know that you are a valued and appreciated part of Minneapolis. I stand with you and support you. The
strength and beauty of the Somali and East African communities are a vital part of what makes Minneapolis so strong and beautiful. I am grateful to be your neighbor.
This week a Somali police officer, Officer Mohamed Noor, shot and killed a woman under circumstances we don’t yet comprehend. Justine Damond’s death was tragic and awful for everyone. And I want to be very clear that Officer Noor, a fully trained officer in the Minneapolis Police Department, won’t be treated differently than any
other officer. Justine’s death is a tragedy for our city. We cannot compound that tragedy by turning to racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia. It is unjust and ridiculous to assert that an entire community be held responsible for the actions of one person. That will not be tolerated in Minneapolis. If you are experiencing discrimination, you can file a
At least the MUSLIM cop didn't shoot her dog to death!

In the next two weeks, the city of Boston will hang 50 posters to address public harassment and Islamophobia.
The posters present "A bystander's guide to helping a person who is being targeted," with the title "ISLAMOPHOBIC HARASSMENT" in bold, capital letters on top. Illustrations depict a woman sitting on a bus or train wearing a hijab, and an angry man yelling at her. A woman intervenes, conversing with the victim until the attacker walks away. The artist employs shades of purple and blues for the drawings, making the race of the illustrated characters unclear, though the intervening bystander appears to be white. Source
Dramatic pictures have emerged showing the moment two passengers were rescued from inside a car flattened by a shipping container, with the driver escaping with just minor injuries.
The incident occurred when a truck carrying the container swerved to avoid colliding with a vehicle in the city of Qingdao, eastern China, causing it to topple from the lorry and land directly on top of the car.
Emergency services called to the scene said they were convinced no-one could not have survived being crushed by such a huge weight, until they heard a woman’s voice emerging from the squashed vehicle.
The fire brigade spokesman Chi Tang was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: "We had a call about the accident to say that a lorry had fallen onto a car. We didn't expect anybody to be alive but then we heard a woman's voice and realised that actually somebody had survived." Independent

Olympia man charged in mailing of severed finger, fake bomb to IRS
An Olympia man who authorities say mailed one of his fingers to the IRS is now facing federal charges.
The Seattlepi.com reported Monday (https://goo.gl/a1MU1R ) that 68-year-old Normand Lariviere was charged with mailing a threat to injure after IRS workers in Ogden, Utah, discovered a package containing a fake bomb July 6.
Charging papers say he also sent his finger, a bullet and a marijuana joint to tax collectors in 2016.
Court documents say Lariviere has been upset with the IRS since he was laid off in the 1990s from his job as a civilian defense contractor.
He began filing grievances with federal agencies related to the Department of Defense, saying he shouldn’t have to pay taxes because the government hadn’t satisfied his claims.
Charging papers say Lariviere told investigators he made and sent the fake bomb. He remains jailed. Source
