It always amazes me how certain criminals, in all their breathtaking audacity, somehow think that they should get preferential treatment if they happen to have religious or dietary restrictions. If you want to live your life as you choose, then don't commit a crime!!
Nour Hadid, apparently beat to death Bhia Hadid, her 2-year-old niece. Over a period of 4 days!
"The child had 55 separate bruises and was beaten "from head to toe," according to prosecutors, who say Hadid confessed."
Though the woman confessed, hubby Alaeddin Hadid claims she's innocent and is mad as hell, because police took the booking photo of his wife sans hijab (head scarf), because, yes they happen to be Muslim. Alaeddin has threatened to sue because it happens to be an "insult against our religion. We do not do this in our culture," stating the Orland (Illinois) police are "really going to be in big trouble".
Oh, really? Being deprived of wearing her hijab is against their religion but beating an innocent child to death is not? His concern over his wife's modesty rather than the fact that she used his niece Bhia as a punching bag, is truly sickening. And what was his involvement, one has to wonder? Then again, they do tend to stone people to death, in the name of honor, so perhaps modesty is more important than the sanctity of life.
As for the police photographing her in her tank top, perhaps she should have been wearing a turtle neck under that hijab. And the police were just doing their job. A matron was present during the whole procedure, and the hijab was returned to Nour after the mug shots were taken,although it was then taken back after she threatened suicide. Lots of material is not a good thing with someone who is suicidal.
And why should Nour be treated differently from any other criminal?! Perhaps she should have thought twice about beating a defenseless little girl to death. She's nothing more than a child killer and should be treated as such!
