This is a related story to something that's been unfolding the last several days up here. The underlying story, a 16 year old girl didn't want to strictly follow the requirements of her family's religion. In the end, death by strangulation from her father was her penalty.<br><br>
Very tragic.

Suppose so, but didnt the article say that he called the police himself and told them he killed his daughter?<br><br>
Should be a short trial I would think.<br><br>
Its hard to believe that people like that really exist. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad">

Why not the death penalty? (assuming its legal there) The man chose to intentionally kill his daughter over a disagreement over clothing..... Granted, based in a religious belief, but good grief.....

Wow.... 20 years doesnt seem anywhere near long enough for someone who does something like that.....<br><br>
But if its the law.....I sure hope he gets the max allowed.

Did you know that the US is just about the only place in the world to really have "life without parole" sentences?<br><br>
In the western world, the maximum is between 20 and 30 years.

No, I didnt realize that.<br><br>
In the case of crimes like that... I'm not sure how much is enough as far as punishment goes. This was an adult, the girls father, who should be her protector, and he killed her instead. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad">

<i>Every Muslim, irrespective of their portrayal of Islam, needs to unite and be an unpaid ambassador to salvage whatever they can in a world where the credibility and true meaning of their religion is on the verge of being lost. I've lived in 3 different continents in the world and have seen the extremist, aggressive, oppressive behaviour that stems from the followers of Islam. As we're all aware, this is not the first so called 'honor killing' and it definitely wont be the last. Muslims, non-muslims and the government alike need to all work together to ensure that Canada is a little different than the several Muslim nations in the world that are immersed in war, either fighting the so called Western cultures they resist, or fighting amongst themselves. Having read the Holy Quran myself, what these muslims have done to the teachings of it, and how they have totally misinterpreted it is truly unfortunate. The Holy Quran is a beautiful book teaching Muslims on how to live a divine, happy, and prosperous life. Instead, it has turned into a means of spreading hatred and chaos. It's about time the Muslims represented the true essence of their beautiful religion.</i><br><br>
from comments on the same article.<br><br>
I agree.

Hey! Don't sell us short! We also have "enemy combatant" status which is way worse than "life without parole."<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cool">
