Dallas Morning News ^ | 07/21/10 | Staff

Posted on 07/21/2010 1:28:03 PM PDT by DFG

An Irving mother accused of strangling her two children with an antenna wire told a 911 operator that she killed them because they were "not normal."

"Both are autistic," she said. "I don’t want my kids to be like that. I want normal kids."

Saiqa Akhter, 30, was arraigned this morning on a single charge of capital murder in the death of her 5-year-old son Zain, who died Monday. Family members have said the boy was autistic and had a speech impediment.

My Buddhist beliefs say that when this sub-human dies, it's "Go to Hell. Go Directly To Hell. Do not dally in the bardo"

A whole lot of bad karma to purify. It's gonna take a few millennia in hell to purify that, and then maybe she can come back as a cockroach.

My nearly 3 year old grandson (I call him Butter. His older sister is Peanut.)got his diagnosis of being on the autism spectrum just yesterday. He could never have been loved more before this diagnosis than after. To hear something like this convinces me that I could personally administer the death penalty concoction straight into her vein.

...

Saiqa Akhter, 30, was arraigned this morning on a single charge of capital murder in the death of her 5-year-old son Zain, who died Monday. Family members have said the boy was autistic and had a speech impediment.

Irving officials canceled a second arraignment this afternoon in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Faryaal, who died Tuesday evening a day after she was revived and placed on life support.

...

The children’s father, Rashid Akhter, emigrated from Pakistan in the late 1990s. He married Saiqa several years later, and she then moved here. He works as a computer technician.

“He did whatever he can do with his wife to keep her happy all the time,” Haque said.


I think the Muslim, Rashid Akhter failed in making his wife, happy.

In May 2009, the parents were contacted by Child Protective Services after they left their son home alone to take their daughter, who was having respiratory problems, to the hospital.

“They admitted to it and they said they understand why it was dangerous to leave a child that young at home by themselves,” said Marissa Gonzales, a CPS spokeswoman.

“They said they had been really concerned about their daughter and so they just hadn’t been thinking but they were adamant that it wouldn’t happen again.”

IRVING, Texas — A Dallas-area mother accused of strangling to death her two young children with a wire was charged with one count of capital murder Wednesday, police said.

A second murder charge against 30-year-old Saiqa Akhter was being prepared, said David Tull, a police spokesman in Irving. Akhter was being held at a jail in the Dallas suburb.

The mother called 911 on Monday evening, telling police she had used a wire around the necks of her children and both had turned blue, according to an affidavit for a search and arrest warrant released by police Tuesday. The warrant said police found the children in a bedroom of their Irving apartment.

Five-year-old Zain Akhter was pronounced dead at a hospital Monday, while his sister, 2-year-old Faryaal Akhter, was revived and placed on life support, the affidavit said. The girl died Tuesday night, the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

The medical examiner’s office ruled the boy’s death a homicide by strangulation and planned an autopsy later Wednesday on the girl.

Saiqa Akhter’s uncle, Wasimul Haque, told The Dallas Morning News that the woman had been depressed since moving into a new apartment in Irving.

The children’s father, Rashid Akhter, emigrated from Pakistan in the late 1990s, the newspaper reported. He married Saiqa, who is also from Pakistan, several years later, it said.

The woman has requested a court-appointed attorney but one has yet to be assigned, an Irving jail official said.

“And how many retarded kids are you willing to take in?”

Just because someone would not willfully seek out to adopt a retarded child, doesn’t mean that same person would harm such a child if he came via the genetic lottery. Everyone wants their children to be born normal, but most people who end up having abnormal children don’t kill them.

Not trying to speak in the place of DFG, but I am willing to take in any retarded kids I have.

I don’t think we have to be willing to adopt every retarded child there is in order to oppose them being murdered, do we?

Give me your address an I'll arrange to have a trio sent there for you.
They'll poop themselves, spit on you, hit your wife and kill your dog.

Got a normal kid already? Tough for him. I'd send him to grandma's because things will get ugly.

So.. how many will you take?

I can’t blame CPS on that. I wouldn’t removed kids from their parents in such a situation. I wouldn’t have expected their imminent murder.

Is it so tough not being lazy? Here I’ll help you.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melanie_Billings

Seems that Melanie and Byrd Billings were murdered by seven people some of them “dressed in ninja garb” last year and were parents who had 17 kids, 13 of which were adopted special needs kids. Seems like the couple got along fine with their kids and none of the kids killed any dogs or did whatever it is that you imagine “abnormal” kids do.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/2009/07/14/2009-07-14_fourth_arrest_in_murder_of_byrd_and_melanie_billings_assailants_in_ninja_garb_ca.html

And one of the suspects was a 16 year old kid, probably one of those “normal” kids that you speak so highly of.
