The Muslim man who’s facing murder charges in Ottawa for the beating death of his wife and the abandonment of the woman’s two-year-old toddler — who was left for 10 days to fend for himself — should not even have been out on the streets.
In October, a judge named Heather Perkins-McVey denied an applicaton to brand this Muslim — Mohamad S. Barkhadle — a dangerous offender for previous crimes. Had she affixed the tag, Barkhadle would’ve been kept in jail for a very long time.
The Ottawa Citizen has the story:
Mohamad S. Barkhadle looked confused Thursday as he appeared in an Ottawa court on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of the woman whose toddler son spent 10 days fending for himself after her death.
Barkhadle, 31, winced and shook his head repeatedly as the charge was read. At one point, the justice of the peace told him to pay attention.
But this wasn’t Barkhadle’s first trip through the Elgin Street courthouse.
In fact, he was last set free on Oct. 26 after Justice Heather Perkins-McVey denied a Crown application to brand Barkhadle a dangerous offender, which would have kept him behind bars for an indeterminate sentence. The Crown also brought an application to designate Barkhadle a long-term offender, which would have come with strict supervision once he was released into the community. Perkins-McVey also denied that application.
Instead, the judge set Barkhadle free after giving him one and a half times credit for the time spent in pre-trial custody at the Innes Road jail. The judge said that conditions at the jail were “difficult” and noted that there were no rehab programs available for the addict there.
Before setting him free in October, the judge said: “Hopefully this has been a wakeup call to Mr. Barkhadle, as he will be closely monitored in future.”
Months later, in May, Barkhadle was again arrested for more serious crimes, including charges of attempted murder for allegedly choking another woman. In that alleged attack, Barkhadle was also charged with aggravated sexual assault, forcible confinement, overcoming resistance by choking, uttering threats, breach of probation and failure to report as required.
Those crimes are alleged to have happened months after police now say Barkhadle killed the woman in March. …
Barkhadle has been on the police radar for awhile. In 2012, police obtained an arrest warrant for him and circulated his picture to the public as they hunted for a suspect who had choked a woman during a robbery. The police have also told the press that they fear there may be more victims.
In 2010, Barkhadle was arrested and charged with pimping a 17-year-old girl. He was charged with procuring, living off the avails of prostitution, living off the avails of a juvenile prostitute using violence and breach of probation.
In another set of charges in 2011, Barkhadle was sentenced to seven months in jail for what a judge described as “morally reprehensible” crimes. Barkhadle, who was 25 at the time, was found guilty of possession of a dangerous weapon, criminal harassment and breach of probation, but acquitted of intimidation and extortion.
Wife-beating, as PamelaGeller.com previously wrote, on this very story, is sanctioned under Islam law.
But this Muslim allegedly got carried away.
A Facebook video by an Islamic group condones domestic violence and describes hitting wives as “a beautiful blessing.” A New York woman beheaded by her moderate Muslim husband, a woman beaten so bad that she swallowed her tongue and died, a woman set on fire by the Muslim who “loved her” ……sharia courts protect wife-beaters and honor killers.
Qur’an (4:34) – “Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.” Contemporary translations sometimes water down this word, but it is the same one used in verse 8:12 and clearly means “to strike.”
