STEVEN HAYWARD: Oddities Of The Noor Shooting. “Second and related, a question that I am sure the mainstream media will not ask, and the Minneapolis political class will suppress if asked in any case, is whether officer Noor was qualified to be a police officer as part of an affirmative action push to get a Somali officer on the force. It would be interesting to see his test scores and training evaluations from whatever police academy he went through. Is there evidence of political pressure to qualify Noor for active duty? Normally I wait for more facts to emerge before engaging in speculation on stories like this, except that this is one question that, as I say, is certain to be suppressed.”

I would expect that the record of his training, performance on qualifying tests, etc. — as well, of course, as any emails, etc. regarding his progress — would be available under Minnesota open-records law.
