Ohio: Muslim immigrant shot, killed his daughter in her sleep gets 22 years for “involuntary manslaughter”

Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Andrew Rogalski said the father and daughter had several issues with each other in the months leading up to the shooting.

He said Tahani had been dating a non-Muslim boyfriend for about a month and worked to keep it a secret from her father who would not have approved.

    You take a gun, you load a gun, you take it to your daughter’s room and you shoot her in the back of the head, then you shoot her in the face, all because she was not obeying you or paying you enough respect as her father.

    And yet you are charged with ‘Involuntary Manslaughter’?

    Involuntary? What part was involuntary? If the answer to this is ‘Muslim Culture’ then we should not allow any more muslims into the West and deport all those already here, because you have just admitted muslims have no personal control over their actions and are forced to kill people who disrespect their culture or their religion.

    Manslaughter? If I shoot someone in the back of the head with a firearm I expect them to die and will be surprised if they live. Therefore the action in pulling the trigger is an unmistakable attempt to cause the death of the person I would be shooting – or it is some self-defensive action. Shooting someone in the back of the head is very unlikely to be a self-defensive action as you have to be in imminent fear of your own life. It is possible that the first shot was a mistake and poor gun handling with your finger on the trigger, but the second shot to the face indicates that it is most unlikely to be a mistake. We are left with very little doubt that this shooting was an intentional shooting of the woman, and without this shooting to be in self-defence we are left with the unsurprising conclusion that this should have been a charge of simple Murder. http://statelaws.findlaw.com/ohio-law/ohio-first-degree-murder-laws.html

      Thanks you saved me a lot of typing, and I think your explanation is spot on. Manslaughter my ass!

      Death penalty was the only just resolution.

    Perhaps if he appeals he’ll get a court that knows enough about Sharia to let him go.

    There was an honour killing in Thornecliff Park in Toronto (home of the Mosqueteria) the other day. Of course non of the papers are reporting it as such but that is obviously was. Of course by this standard I suppose it could have been an honour manslaughter.

      I remember when you could hardly buy a falafel in Thorncliff.

      Things are so much cooler there now.

    As bad as this is we can be thankful he was sentenced in the U. S. and not Canada where he would most likely be out of prison next week with a full apology for the inconvenience.

      Don’t forget the payout.

    “Involuntary manslaughter” may be a joke, but his 22-year sentence is considerably more than what he would have gotten in Europe for a murder conviction.

      Or in Canada.

      I believe that is Islamic Father of the Year Award.

    Islam must die.

      At least remove it from our countries.

      • Truthhurts

        Removal isn’t enough, they’d just come slithering back in.
