Canadian Mom To Go Free In Honor Killing

http://www.canada.com/news/3233752.bin

In an astounding ruling, Aset Mogomadova will serve no jail time for killing her 14-year-old daughter.

In October, Judge Sal LoVecchio acquitted Magomadova of second-degree murder and found her guilty of manslaughter in the 2007 death of her daughter Aminat. He sentenced her to probation for three years, with the idea that she would return to the court for further sentencing afterwards.

The judge rejected an argument by Crown prosecutors Mac Vomberg and Sarah Bhola, who wanted Magomadova, a Chechen Muslim immigrant to Canada to receive a 12-year prison term. Instead LoVecchio simply suspended her sentence.

The killing occurred in the family home in February, 2007, after Aminat and her mother got into an argument over her conduct.

Magomadova claimed Aminat came at her with a knife, after which she wrapped a prayer scarf around her daughter's neck until Aminat lost consciousness.

A knife was found in the room, but the daughter’s fingerprints were not on it.

LoVecchio rejected the original plea of self-defense, but ruled that the killing was unintentional....even though medical examiner Dr. Sam Andrews testified that the killing by strangulation would have taken at least 2 1/2 minutes. It also seems problematic that a young, active teenager armed with a knife would be outmaneuvered while coming at an older and obviously overweight adult, get a scarf thrown around her neck and not even manage to cut her assailant once.

“I really strongly disagree [with the sentence]. It sends a massively huge message to the rest of the country and the world that her daughter’s life was valueless,” said Joe Wamback, co-founder and chairman of the Canadian Crime Victims Foundation.

“Even though this girl may have been a handful and trouble, that’s not the issue. The issue is human life. Sentencing is not just about the criminal, but has to speak for the victim and to denunciation.”

Now watch the spate of murders that abound in Canada, and the calim of honor as a justification. I can't stand these liberal ass morons, political correctness and cultural relativism. That judge should be removed from the bench.

Why are we still allowing these people to immigrate to our countries? Their culture clearly is not compatible with ours. They severly curtain immigration to their countries and they closely monitor the foreigners who are in their countries because they understand this. They don't want their own culture corrupted!! Why should we wish to have ours corrupted? Simply placing a moratorium on immigration from Islamic countries to our countries would give us far greater utility for our national security interests than any thing we are currently doing.

You don't think this massive immigration is simply an oversight or good policy gone bad do you? Make no mistake behind the scenes money and other forms of renumeration are changing hands. This will continue until either you are outnumbered and they can come out from behind the curtains and take over the country or the more unlikely event that you all wakeup and stop your politicians from selling you out. I'm betting you'all never wake up in time. For those of you who like to plan ahead I'm suggesting you begin the process of becoming muslim.
