think the regard for life is getting less and less as the years go on, years ago if you had a drunken row with your friends it was no more then a few slaps! Now, its kick them like they are a football or stab them!!!

It said on the news yesterday that they had a 30 year old in for questioning. He actually went to the guards himself.
They also said that it seems to be Irelands first ‘honour’ killing. Dont really know what that means but think its something to do with adultery.January 9, 2011 at 9:15 pm #107227hjsMember
Yeah, was it a woman and her cousin in the flat and the (male) cousin who died?
Very sad if it is an "Honour" killing, that is the case, altho obv would be in any case.January 9, 2011 at 9:23 pm #107229
this is what wikipedia say an honour killing is
An honor killing or honour killing (also called a customary killing) is the murder of a member of a family or social group by other members, due to the belief of the perpetrators (and potentially the wider community) that the victim has brought dishonour upon the family or community. Honour killings are directed mostly against women and girls. scary stuff
The perceived dishonor is normally the result of one of the following behaviors, or the suspicion of such behaviors: (a) dressing in a manner unacceptable to the family or community, (b) wanting to terminate or prevent an arranged marriage or desiring to marry by own choice, (c) engaging in heterosexual sexual acts outside marriage, or even due to a non-sexual relationship perceived as inappropriate, and (d) engaging in homosexual acts. Women and girls are killed at a much higher rate than men.
The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) estimates that perhaps as many as 5,000 women and girls a year are murdered by members of their own families. Many women’s groups in the Middle East and Southwest Asia suspect the victims are at least four times more.January 9, 2011 at 9:30 pm #107231

WOW!!!! Why would it be removed or need to be removed its just the facts about what an honour killing is about…. never heard of them myself, but i have read alot of cases where woman were going to leaving husbands and they throw acid into their faces, its a case if i cant have you in that state nobody else will want you!!!!January 9, 2011 at 10:29 pm #107245
i know my friend is a reporter for a us news station and is in the middle east and did a story about women that would want to get out of marraiges and like you said would throw acid on themeselves, or set themselves alight…
if their husband wanted to leave them, and go with someone else they would do horrible things to them so that no other man would go near them….

Been lots of these in Uk, am v accustomed to hearing about them sadly. 🙁
Think in some police forces there there are special units dedicated to dealing with, and other related issues, like forced marriages, v sad in this day and age… 🙁
