Another sick bastard

Via Boise's newest (legal) immigrant, SarahK, some disturbing news:

Yaser Abdel Said, the 50-year-old Lewisville father, remained at large, police said. He is accused of fatally shooting his 17- and 18-year-old daughters, police said.
Police said they suspect that Said may have shot his daughters -- Sarah Yaser Said, 17, and Amina Yaser Said, 18 -- and left them for dead in his taxi.

An excellent roundup is at hotair - the details are sadly familiar, and the pictures are heartbreaking. These were just typical girls, living typically. I know a lot of fathers with daughters, one of whom is an Egyptian immigrant, and I can say pretty confidently that every last one of them would jump between an armed assailant and one of his girls. I cannot fathom the man who would be that assailant himself; who would abdicate his responsibility to protect and nurture his own child to the extent of murdering her if she somehow failed to live up to his own unrealistic and stultifying visions of distorted femininity.

Cowardly monster.

I've posted it before, so I'll post it again - this sort of thing has got to be shut down in the West before it takes root. And fortunately for the daughters and sisters of other maniacs, this guy lives in a state that executes people for such crimes.
