This is another disgusting indication of how we (in the West) continue to cave to barbaric practices of Islam. Just as law enforcement has made a half assed attempt to capture and convict the brutal torturing father of Amina and Sarah Said, here again is a leftard judge excusing the practice of Islamic torture. Dhimmi judge, no justice.
Torture dad gets 5 years NY Daily News hat tip Davida
A father convicted of torturing a relative of his runaway daughter's lover found sympathy from a judge Monday - getting just five years in jail instead of the maximum 25 years.
"I miss my daughter. My house is like a cemetery," cried Javed Khalid, whose daughter, Maryam, 15, ran away with her boyfriend two years ago, spurning a wealthy suitor her Pakistani family chose for her.
She's lucky she's alive.
"My little son cries for his sister everyday," he told Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Joel Goldberg. "I don't know if she's alive or dead. Help me, please!"
Khalid and three relatives were convicted last August of binding, beating and torturing the uncle of Maryam Khalid's lover in a bid to find the young couple.
They all faced up to 25 years behind bars in the August 2006 assault. One of the men, Shafique Mohammed, whose daughter ran away with Maryam and returned, is being held by immigration officials.
Deport the neanderthal!
In sentencing Khalid and Mohammed to the minimum, Goldberg said both are "hardworking fathers never involved in crime until this happened. Their daughters ran away from home and they believed the [victim]knew where they were."
A leftarded Jewish judge. Perfect. The judge is a son of a bitch. The girl ran for her life and married the man. She succeeded where Amina and Sarah failed.
Goldberg seemed to question anguished letters read at trial, purportedly from Maryam Khalid, who is still in hiding with Rana Usman, whom she has since married.
"The reason I left was because I wasn't happy. I and my boyfriend, Rana Usman, are together. I don't want anything happening to Rana's family," one letter said.
Jurors said those letters moved them to convict the men. Human rights activists say Maryam Khalid should fear for her life if she returns.
The judge let the bastard off with 5 years. That girl needs a witness protection program. Her life is not worth a plug nickel.
