Posted on 10/14/2008 5:50:17 PM PDT by radar101
Almost a year after two teenage girls were found dead allegedly executed by their father in the back seat of a taxicab in Texas, the FBI is saying for the first time that the case may have been an "honor killing."
Sarah Said, 17, and her sister Amina, 18, were killed on New Year's Day, but for nine months authorities deflected questions about whether their father the prime suspect and the subject of a nationwide manhunt may have targeted them because of a perceived slight upon his honor.

There was one labled one before I think...I will have to find it...it was a while back...had on of those court/tv shows about it.
Welcome to Ameristan.
OK .. what exactly does that mean ... “honor killing” ... and what legal ramifications would such a term entail in regards to the FBI using it?
Ah I see they are saying it was the first time THIS case was labeled that way
I think with the FBI it is pr thing where they are squeamish about using the term due to it’s association with a certain religion of peace.
Kinda like when they had problems finding a motive with the LAX shooter and the Seattle shootings.
OK .. what exactly does that mean ... honor killing
An honor killing or honour killing is generally the murder of a family or clan member, most often females, when they (and maybe the wider community) believe the person to have brought dishonour upon them. A woman can be targeted commonly for: refusing an arranged marriage, seeking a divorce (even from an abusive husband), or committing adultery or fornication (even if she was the victim of sexual assault). These killings result from the perception that defense of family honour justifies killing a woman whose behavior dishonours her family.
WE DON’T WANT TO OFFEND MUSLIMS—The ONLY ones who do “Honor Killings”
Wy not, they offend me
FBI - Masters of the Obvious!
(widely called the “Feebs”...)
Not what I was thinking of but another case:
What would the muslims know of “honor?”
I can’t understand what kind of sick sonofabitch could kill his own daughters. Islam must be as much a mental disease as a religion.
I think that I’ll kill my neighbor’s dog who continues pooping on my lawn. That would certainly reestablish my honor. (America, what’s wrong with you? Why even allow these people to come into the country? Do you really have this great desire to self-destruct?)
hate crime is better term.
