Accused wife beheader citing spouse abuse (3 guesses which religion...)
UPI ^ | 9/4/2010

BUFFALO, N.Y., Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Attorneys for a television executive charged with stabbing and beheading his wife can introduce evidence of "battered spouse syndrome," a New York judge ruled.

Prosecutors in the case against Muzzammil Hassan said the decision by Erie County Judge Thomas P. Franczyk would force them to ask for a delay in the trial in the February 2009 killing of Aasiya Zubair Hassan, The Buffalo News reported Saturday.

Muzzammil Hassan has been in custody since the body of his wife was found in the studio of Bridges TV, the Muslim-oriented cable station the couple had co-founded five years earlier.

District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III said he was infuriated at being forced to seek another delay because of "psychiatric hide-and-seek" by the defense.

Hassan's defense team said they had not wanted a delay.

"We never wanted a postponement," Julie Atti Rogers said. "We never intended this case to get pushed out into the new year. That being said, we are happy ... to have his doctor testify regarding the evaluation that she did and the diagnosis that she made."

Ana Natasha Cervantes, a Buffalo forensic psychiatrist, and Kenneth Corvo, a Syracuse psychologist, are ready to testify Hassan suffered from "spousal abuse syndrome," Rogers said.

Oh that will go over well in the muslim community, a pu$$y male muslim being abused by his Westernized wife. I guess it’s as a good a diversion as this scumbag’s attorney’s can come up with...but, where’s NOW screaming it’s feminist head off regarding this pig’s action of sawing his liberated wife’s head off?

...Hassan suffered from "spousal abuse syndrome"...

More like Islam Syndrome, an acute and virulent form of mental illness.

If he gets away with it, I volunteer to set him up with my ex-wife.

Seeing how he's single and all.

Just sayin'.

Had to look it up! I’d forgotten.
“a monotheistic pre-Islamic religion of ancient Persia founded by Zoroaster in the 6th century bc.
According to the teachings of Zoroaster, the supreme god, named Ahura Mazda, created twin spirits, one of which chose truth and light, the other untruth and darkness. Later writings present a more dualistic cosmology in which the struggle is between Ahura Mazda (Ormazd) and the evil spirit Ahriman. The scriptures of Zoroastrianism are the Zend-Avesta. The language survives in isolated areas of Iran and in India, where its followers are known as Parsees.”

I want to say one more thing. Nothing is funny about this. This woman was killed. I put Amish down because it always seems to be the same types who are doing this.

we can’t expect a political cult that uses religion for a beard to behave like humans... nor even tamed animals... but like wild beasts with no value system with respect for human lives.

His last name brought back memories of the Bugs Bunny short “Ali Baba Bunny”, where a crazed man chased after him with a huge sword, yelling, “HASSAN CHOP!”

Spousal abuse?

Sure. I’ll bet when he cut off her head, it landed on his foot and bruised one of his toes!

This case should have received a lot more attention. I’ll bet the MSM won’t cover the trial much.

".... testify Hassan suffered from "spousal abuse syndrome,"

In that cult, when a wife asks for a divorce, would that be considered SAS?

He was an artist. Most artist are freaky. Your man Lawrence Welk probably owned a ballcock, what do you know?

THAT is the real reason behind this. Any little tiny bit of it will do - stare decisis and all.
