Noor verdict sparks disappointment, outrage within local Somalis


On the same day former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor was convicted last week of fatally shooting an unarmed civilian, another young Somali-American was graduating from the Minneapolis Police Academy.

"When somebody is graduating we all dress up and we will go there and celebrate," said Waheid Siraach, co-founder of the Somali-American Police Association. "There was no such thing this time around. One of us was going to jail, and another one was coming out of the academy."
