Attempted Honor Killing in PA

Some Pennsylvania muslims from Buck's County attempted to bring the dark ages to Middletown by kidnapping their daughter's fiancé and threatening to kill him in the name of "family honor:"

Webber (police officer -ed.) said the alleged victim told him his fiancée’s family was upset the two had moved in together. He said there were cultural differences and that’s why 48-year-old Mohd Nasher and his son 20-year-old Mohammed Nasher were allegedly gunning for the fiancé.

“The father and son came in, grabbed our victim, pulled him outside, began choking and beating him. Drug him into the back of a Ford Explorer and that’s where they advised him that they were going to take him somewhere. He jumped out the other side window in fear for his life and as he went to run away the father told him, ‘I’m going to find you and I’m going to shoot you.’ The son went and grabbed a bat and went to chase after him,” Webber said.

Both Nashers were charged with assault and kidnapping. They both posted $20,000 cash bail and were released. ...

This happened with an hour's drive from where I live. What fun.

Their religion had nothing to do with this, though. Nothing at all.
