Minneapolis police remove memorial left by hate group

Police in Minneapolis in the U.S. have removed a candle-lit memorial created by a white nationalist group to honour Australian woman Justine Damond shot dead by an officer.

An officer removed the framed portrait of Damond, along with candles, roses and signs reading "United We Stand", while police spokesperson John Elder told the Minnesota Public Radio News, "We can not allow any memorial and anything like that to be put up at that location".

Minneapolis police department spokesman John Elder said officers removed the memorial immediately after they were notified.

Damond had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in an alley behind her house.

On Friday, Identity Evropa created the shrine outside the 5th Precinct with a photo of Damond, flowers and a sign that read "United We Stand", with "Identity Evropa", right underneath.

Members of the group were present at the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville in August, where a young anti-racism activist, Heather Heyer, was killed after a auto drove into protesters.

The clashes came amid debate over the removal of statues and memorials commemorating the Confederacy across the country.

In a statement Sunday evening, Minneapolis Mayor-elect Jacob Frey condemned placing the memorial outside the precinct.

"We can not allow any memorial and anything like that to be put up at that location", Elder told the radio station. Damond approached police unarmed and in her pajamas when she was shot. Hate has no place in Minneapolis.

Damond's death drew widespread condemnation and led to the forced resignation of the city's police chief.

"I was wrong to discuss the agency's work and what discussions we were having internally at the Hennepin County Attorney's Office", Freeman said.

At this time, the investigation into the shooting is still open and Noor has not been charged with any wrongdoing.

"We are deeply concerned about the possibility that the initial investigation was not done properly and with greatest integrity and sense of completeness", said her father, John Ruszczyk. "And he used force because he thought he was gonna be killed", Freeman said.
