It's easy, especially for me when I was younger, to say.. You go girl, good for you. Then in this country she would be given a slap on the wrist by a
jury who felt it was 'heat of passion'. Setting that precedent in the minds of others to morally accept her level of punishment for his 'alleged'
crime is dangerous.
It amazes me how the hosts of the video broadcast, (and many posters) here have almost automatically sympathized with her situation, decided she has
been getting raped for two full months, then chose to assasinate him the way she did and made her claims. IF she is telling the truth, I don't have a
problem with it.... but is it true?
In Turkey and many other countries a wife could be killed, (stoned if you recall) for committing adultery, what's HIS side of the story? Was he
seduced by her, did they have an affair...is she protecting her honor and that of her family while also hopefully avoiding a village stoning?
That is why she is being charged with murder,... examine the evidence to establish proof that what SHE is claiming he did to her ... actually
happened. Even so, at least in this country, sexual battery (as the only crime) is only punishable by death if the victim is a child...even then it
would require a mountain of evidence along with other extenuating circumstances.
A story aired this morning of this guy who was just given 50 years for killing his two roomates, do you think the family is happy with that? I
A man in Islo given 21 years for planning out and killing or injuring almost a hundred people...unimaginable.
We all see it over and over again.
In this case by the OP, if the decapitated man was in fact your brother, or son, and you KNEW of their secret mutual affair, would his punishment be a
What if they were involved in an affair and SHE caught HIM cheating?
I've seen people who I would have bet my paycheck were innocent, come forward later and admit they lied, and put an innocent man in jail 18 years,
because they were ashamed/scared didn't want to tarnish her reputation/ honor etc.
The real story may never be known now, either way, had he been alive and found guilty.... his appropriate punishment, in my opinion, would to spend
the rest of his life being raped over and over by big hairy Turkish thugs in a nasty Turkish prison, and her allowed an urgent abortion and victim
avocation assistance and support.
