It’s A Cultural Thing

Pakistani-German couple in Darmstadt sentenced to life for killing their daughter

Culture

A Pakistani-German couple has been convicted of killing their daughter on religious grounds after she slept with her boyfriend. The teenager was strangled and dumped in a nearby forest.

In case you didn’t know, this kind of thing is referred to as an “honor” killing.

And by the way, there is no such thing as a life sentence in Germany. Life means fifteen years here.

Lawyers for the defense argued that despite being in Germany for twenty-eight years, the husband was “not properly socialized” in German culture and his wife “had nothing to do with the normal world.”

  1. A Pakistani immigrant dumped his wife’s body 100 meters from my mother-in-law’s house. Hardly made the local news, never mind the national news. His excuse: She became too American.

  2. Lawyers for the defense argued that despite being in Germany for twenty-eight years, the husband was “not properly socialized” in German culture and his wife “had nothing to do with the normal world.”

    Then why no extradition?

  3. Yesterday’s California shooting is being spun by Obama and his followers as more “gun violence” and “work place violence.” He dissed Amerika’s gun culture in all places Paris, which just suffered a horrific attack that killed 152 people. Imagine the outrage in Germany if a 26 year old Muslim “Beamter” and his wife walked into the Rathaus and killed 14 fellow “Beamten” during the office Christmas party.

    • “if a 26 year old Muslim “Beamter” and his wife walked into the Rathaus and killed 14 fellow “Beamten” during the office Christmas party.” …then the media would say a German citizen on tenure and his wife did it, and gun laws need to be tightend asap.
