A 13-year-old girl whose beating death led to the arrest of her 71-year-old father had enraged him by refusing to say her prayers, according to neighbours.
No tools needed, so again a case of “Gun Death?”, but also this reeks of Honor Killing, now there is no exact comparisons, but I would like to make the argument that these killings are the opposite of the fabled “Hate Crimes”, a family member killing a loved-one to protect them from dishonor. You could say it’s a crime of love…and does it make any difference to you, or this pretty young girl?
As much as it disgusts me to hear about “Hate Crime”, I see no valid reason to judge the crime any differently than crimes of passion, or crime for profit, or “honor killings” like this. You judge a man by his actions, not by what’s in his mind, or heart, and not by the tools in his hand.
