I can remember when Canada was the more or less sane of the two English speaking North American nations; times they are a changin’ have changed!
I took a look at Jihad Watch prior to moving on to other, more domestic, affairs when this little number from the Calgary Herald popped up at the top; I envy Robert his “Spencidor’s Army” sending him items they glean from the net… it takes TIME to read all those news sources!
So much for domestic affairs for a while…
CALGARY – The Calgary mother who killed her teenage daughter by strangling her with a scarf more than three years ago will not have to spend a day in jail, a judge ruled on Thursday.
But, in suspending the sentence of Aset Magomadova and placing her on probation for three years, Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Sal LoVecchio said the penalty can still meet the ends of justice.
Yes, Virginia you read that right… three years probation for 2nd degree murder; it gets “better”! Let us take this nauseating mess one glob at a time; the additions in brackets are mine.
“At first blush (a suspended sentence) may sound like a get out of jail free card. It is not,” emphasized the judge.
“The court has said the act in question [murdering her daughter with her own hands] does not merit [two goats would not butt heads over this girl] a period of incarceration. [“not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2)]
There are other, even more reliable texts that support this woman’s actions according to Shari’a law…
“The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) used not to kill the children, so thou shouldst not kill them unless you could know what Khadir had known about the child he killed, or you could distinguish between a child who would grow up to be a believer (and a child who would grow up to be a non-believer), so that you killed the (prospective) non-believer and left the (prospective) believer aside.”
– Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4457.
On with the show…
What the court has done is reserved or to use the word of the statute, ‘suspended’ judgment on that point [the murder of her daughter] for a period of time on conditions. If the conditions are satisfied, then the individual will not be sentenced. If they are breached, the individual will be brought back to the court to be dealt with further.”
What this seems to mean is that if the lady is nice, and keeps to her probation then in three years it will be as though the murder never happened! At that time I assume the judge will go to the cemetery and wave his magic wand; the dirt will rise and the daughter will walk amongst us again, go to school, graduate, marry and live a long happy life. What is that Virginia? The corpse will just rot in the ground and a life will never be lived? Ce La Vie!
…LoVecchio deemed she did not intend to kill her, even though such an act required at least 2 1/2 minutes of continuous strangulation to cause death, and convicted her last October of the lesser included offence of manslaughter.
Manslaughter; oopsie, I just accidently, but with culpability, strangled my own freaking daughter for enough time to listen to Break On Through (To The Other Side) by The Doors and have a whole 5 seconds left to watch her eyes go dead in silence! Try it; play the track and close your eyes and just imagine the evil n this judge’s heart…
Gee Virginia, can you tell that I am a little tweaked by this judge? Knew you could!
…it was the wish of the family that “people would know mental health services for young people and hel[p] for their families will be improved, and changes made to the system, so that others who have to go through similar situations do not fall through the cracks.”
What more do you need to understand the 180 degree twist this family puts on blame, shame and trauma? Allah forbid anyone else should have to go through the horror of murdering their daughter… who mentions the daughter? No one!
Defence lawyer Alain Hepner said his client was crying after she learned she’d be free to go home and agreed it was appropriate.
…LoVecchio said he wrestled with dynamics of the family in reaching his conclusions.
“This was a family in crisis with events spiraling out of control,” he said, alluding to the friction between Aset and Aminat leading up to the deadly confrontation that morning.
MURDER, damn it, it was a murder, not a confrontation!
“It cannot be reduced to simply a case of mom choosing to kill her daughter as a form of discipline because she misbehaved. Quite simply, the events of that morning cannot be seen as a single isolated event.”
Yes, it can as I am sure that is exactly what was going through the “mom’s” mind at the time her version of Break On Through was playing in her head; and for 5 seconds longer.
Quite simply the above garbage cannot be seen as anything but trying to blame the victim or someone, anyone but the mother who strangled her daughter for AT LEAST 2 and a half minutes until she was dead, dead, dead.
But the Crown Prosecutor is not taking this lying down!
Crown prosecutor Mac Vomberg had argued for a 12-year prison term.
The Crown appealed the conviction long ago, but Vomberg said he could not comment about a possible appeal of the sentence.
“That’s up to another branch of Alberta Justice,” Vomberg said outside court, emphasizing there are “only degrees of losers, no winners” in the tragic case.
“We have to review this decision very carefully and we have to analyze exactly what are the terms of probation.”
I take that last to mean that if this Reader’s Digest Mom steps over the line even a fraction Mr. Vomberg will be there with a video camera and handcuffs.
Defence lawyer Alain Hepner said his client was crying and very relieved about not having to go to jail.
I am sure; she was probably shocked to her bones when they told her that Canada actually would send her to prison for this; and they would have, if she had not been a Muslim with “traditional ways” confusing her willing integration into Western society – and a daughter too willing to add to her confusion by adopting those ways too quickly! POOR WOMAN!
