Alleged Honor Killing Attempt Made On Teen in Mississauga.

Sadly, there's no way I could possibly keep up with these types of stories. There are far too many of them.

I'm lost for words...this is disgusting.

Some of the reports about this crime are concealing that it has its roots in honor. I hope this misguided sense of political correctness doesn't hinder prosecution and the development of any needed programs to prevent future such incidents.

ERS - I'm reading your book right now and plan to review it soon.

How can someone think they can get away with this in Canada?

I hope these men are prosecuted and punished accordingly. It is not our custom to murder our daughters and sisters under the guise of family "honor" in North America.

I am glad to see subsequent reports spell out exactly why this murder happened. I only wish this young woman had survived.
