    From a legal standpoint that is neither unusual or surprising. He is following the advise of his attorney clearly.

    I don’t have a problem with him doing that, it’s his right but I can’t imagine that if a regular citizen refused to answer questions that the police would wait months to charge him. They have evidence that he shot and killed her and he is offering nothing to explain his actions.
    Can someone cite a single case where a suspect who is neither wealthy or powerful refused to answer a single question and the police let them run around free for months?

    I think a good comparison would be the death of Sherin Mathews in Texas, at the hands of her parents. The girl's father incriminated himself and was charged in a few days. After some initial cooperation the mother lawyered up. She was charged about 41 days later. I can't think of any cops who have ever been charged that quickly. Most investigations of LEOs generally take about one to two years.

    And nobody is disputing he is the one who shot her dead. One would think that in order to prevent arrest, at the very least he would have to claim he was fearing for his life when he shot her. I guess in this case one would be wrong.And still no charges even though no one is disputing he shot and killed her.
    Just my opinion

    I thought the police liked to put pressure on the suspect. At least that's the way they do it on a crime drama or in the movies. Sorry for the example but in my limited experience the police don't let average Joe just sit at home for a year before even questioning them. If a suspect don't want to cooperate they should arrest them.
    Is it no wonder that some don't trust the police. Remember this is coming from someone that supports the police, but I understand peoples frustration with the system.

    We need to do a better job of acting fair with everyone!

    Since Noor has retained an attorney and declined to give a statement (which is his right), if law enforcement puts too much pressure on him to evoke a statement, they run the risk of tainting the case. What we don't know is if Noor made a statement right after the shooting to supervisors, etc. Having said all that, I do think it has taken an awful long time for the District Attorney office to decide on charges. I can't imagine there is any evidence still to come in.

    As a LE officer who used deadly force on a citizen, he should be absolutely required to make a statement. If he can’t make a statement, then how do we know it was anything other than murder. Apparently he is not even claiming it was justifiable. He should have been charged with 1st degree murder the minute he refused to give a statement. JMO

    Minneapolis braces for decision over Justine Damond's fatal shooting
    SBS News (Australia)
    Updated 1 hour ago (as at 11:12 AEDT 11 December 2017)

    ‘Heartbroken family, friends and supporters of Australian life coach Justine Damond are bracing for the announcement of whether the US police officer who shot her dead in an alley will be charged.

    The Minneapolis prosecutor who will make the decision, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, has said he would make a decision before the end of the year.’

    ‘"There's going to be a reaction from certain segments in the community regardless of what decision is made," Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune newspaper.’

    ‘Somali-born Officer Noor has declined to be interviewed by investigators.

    The large Somali community in Minneapolis is also bracing for a decision.

    In September, the Minneapolis police union, after months of silence, stepped in after Mr Freeman told a town hall meeting the shooting did not have to happen.

    "We want an assurance that Noor will not be charged simply on the basis of Damond's status as a fine young woman in a nice neighbourhood," police union boss Lieutenant Bob Kroll wrote in a letter published in the Star-Tribune.’
