PHARM Podcast 208 Ketamine controversy with Minneapolis Police
Hi folks. On todays episode I discuss prehospital ketamine research and controversy in Minneapolis. show notes: Minneapolis Police Department involvement in prehospital sedation – Office of Police Conduct Review July 2018 Hennepin Ketamine Study Raises Questions About Ethics And Consent Shooting of Justine Damond A listener, Duke Powell sent in this feedback comment to clarify the details of the police shooting of Justine Damond. Thanks Duke. I retired as a paramedic from Hennepin County Medical Center a little less than 2 years ago and participated in at least one of the Ketamine studies mentioned in the Minneapolis news media. I’ve gotten thru just a few minutes of your podcast on this issue and would like to comment on the tragic police shooting of Justine Damond by Officer Mohamed Noor before moving on to the Ketamine issue in a separate posting. As you correctly stated, Damond had called for police thinking there may be a sexual assault occurring in the alley behind her home. Police responded as Damond apparently wandered into the alley to investigate further. Alleys are typically narrow with shrubbery frequently planted on each side of the alleyway making it narrower still. At nighttime these are considered dangerous passageways for police, especially for calls of violence. It is not unusual for police to have their windows down and guns un-holstered while driving through an area such as this. Apparently as the police slowly drove down the alley, they passed Damond not noticing her presence. As they proceeded she reportedly smacked the rear fender of the car and then walked up to the driver’s side window. She was immediately shot by Officer Noor who was sitting in the front passenger seat. Both officers were placed on Administrative Leave which is normal in police involved shootings. An investigation was conducted and Officer Noor was charged with 3rd Degree murder and 2nd Degree Manslaughter. As soon as the charges were brought, he was terminated from the Minneapolis Police Dept. and jailed. At a Court hearing, Noor was released after posting a bond of over $500,000. The legal process is on-going. While most would agree that Noor acted recklessly and his actions resulted in a senseless death of an innocent woman, it remains to be seen, under Minnesota law, if he can be found guilty.
