I asked Gail Gartrell, "honor" killing murder victims Amina and Sarah Said's aunt, if she would take a moment and share her thoughts on Tissy Said's (Amina and Sarah's mother) recent confession. Despicable. The Muslims for whom she covered and abetted no longer have use for her, so she will now mine the murder of those tortured girls.
I, for one, believe Tissy should be in jail. Her crocodile tears, almost two years later, are transparent and pathetic. It is only now that she admits that it was an honor killing, but it was Gail Gartrell who was brave and true to those girls. Gail exposed the honor killing right after the murders, at their funeral. Gail spoke for those girls when no one would. Gail has received an unremitting, unrelenting string of death threats since Amina and Sarah's murder, merely for speaking the truth about the "honor" killing.
Does the murderous mom think that the magic words "honor kiling" are her get out of jail free card?
I have no sympathy for Tissy. This latest media ploy reeks of opportunism. She deserves jail and knows it. She brought the girls back after they had run away. They were dead less than 24 hours later. Tissy's myspace page after Amina and Sarah's death was "yaser's girl," with pictures of herself with Yaser.
This was her profile pic:
Tissy withdrew the affidavit she originally signed when the girls were seven and eight, testifying that Yaser had raped them.
In October 1998, when Amina and Sarah were 9 and 8 years old, they accused their father of sexual abuse.
The allegations were reported to the Hill County sheriff's office, where the girls told a detective their father had been touching them inappropriately. Amina told authorities she had been penetrated at least once.
Their mother swore in an affidavit that the allegations were true. (here)
The two girls told authorities that they had lied about the allegations because they didn't want to attend rural Covington schools and wanted to go live with their grandmother. A district judge later dropped the charges of aggravated sexual assault against Mr. Said.
Tissy is vile. She went to with the brother of Yaser Said after her daughters were murdered. And then went on the lam with another "devout Muslim". And so now they have discarded her. She is alone and she thinks she can exploit those poor beleaguered girls.
Not on my watch.
Here is Aunt Gail's take on Tissy's newly found guilt:
