Moussa Sidimé gets 60 days in slapping death of daughter
CBC ^ | 05/21/2014

Posted on 05/21/2014 11:10:27 AM PDT by Phlap

Moussa Sidimé, a Longueuil, Que., man who pleaded guilty in the 2010 death of his teenage daughter, was sentenced today to 60 more days in jail and then probation of two years.

Sidimé, 74, pleaded guilty to manslaughter after slapping his 13-year-old, Nouténé, so hard that an artery in her brain ruptured.

His remaining children said putting their father behind bars would be doing the family more harm than good.

A criminologist who took the stand agreed, noting Sidimé had no recorded history of violence.

You can bet if he is a Muzzie that it isn’t the first time he’s been violent.

With good behaviour, he’ll be out in 40 days. (Just kidding — or am I?)

It’s OK.

It was an honor slap.

men shouldn’t be fathering at that age....they’re too old to be good fathers...being a good father means having patience, and stamina, and compassion and exuberance....

60 days, wow

In this country you might get off by saying cultural differences if you are an illegal or Muslim, heck some judge might throw you in the clink for 30 days for rape, but we have so many bad judges the bad ones really stand out.

Serving your sentence on weekends sounds like the most retarded thing I ever hard.

How about throwing them in jail 9-5 and paying them?

geez

“no recorded history of violence”

No one does, until they commit a crime.

Looks like the towelheads are winning.

Sidimé, 74, pleaded guilty to manslaughter after slapping his 13-year-old, Nouténé, so hard that an artery in her brain ruptured.

Should have gotten more time.

But it would be difficult to convict him of much more severe charges.

Murder can't apply, because that requires intent, even if only momentarily, to kill. Nobody tries to kill a more or less grown person by slapping her.

So the maximum charge that could probably stick is manslaughter, of which he was duly convicted.

A slap just isn't an efficient mechanism to transfer energy. Not to mention that most guys in their 70s aren't capable of hitting all that hard.

I wonder if she may have had some sort of embolism or other problem that interacted with the slap to cause her death.

I met with Member of parliament yesterday, and they are working on things like this, they just did a quiet 10% cut to all government agencies and doing more. Now we won’t get arrested for defending ourselves in our homes etc either.

Stuff like this is not indicative of the country as a whole just like I don’t judge the US off some nutjobs.

Of course I think you were probably just joking anyways.

I should think that such qualities as patience and compassion might actually be found more often among older fathers.

Um, life savings?

Between the ages of 20 and 65 (retirement), one should be able to pretty consistently bank more money away every year.

So you believe this Moussa Sidimé, at 74 years of age, has enough money set aside from his working years to support a 13 year old child as well as other children and (presumably) at least one wife? He must have done well indeed!

How many 60 year old men do you know who are interested in having a child/starting a family?

My country is gone. We have succumbed to the dark side...no pun intended. Except for your more draconian gun control laws, I believe you may be in better shape than the current paradigm of the the USA

Obama is a practicing Marxist a faggot (with faggot politics) and a sharia law backing Muslim.

God Bless Canada. May both of our countries get through this awful period together with Freedom.

And oh yes. I was kidding but in retrospect it was a bit nasty sounding.

Not being a hockey fan, the only time I hear your national anthem is when I watch the NY Yankees play the Toronto Blue Jays. It is a fine national anthem.

Looks like the Canadians value life just a little bit more than we do here in Amerika!

Abortionists never see a day within the confines of a cell down here. This scum at least gets 60 days!

How hard do you have to be slapping someone to rupture an artery in their BRAIN?!?

I mean, I might have some sympathy for this guy. My dad slapped me when I was a kid, and I did deserve it. Still, I can’t fathom how this could just be a momentary lapse of temper, if the child died from it.

Sell one to feed the rest? Oh wait, that was back in his home country. Not sure how he manages in Canada.

US isn’t gone yet, I still firmly believe there are enough Americans who will do what is right when pushed to the wall, which I think is imminent.

May God watch over us all.

You asked "And how does one support children at that age?"

That was my answer.
