Original post:

I was just about to log off for the evening when I caught this really weird story on Reuters about this guy Muzzammil who beheaded his wife in Buffalo? The man is a 44 year old Muslim and his wife is a beautiful…well, was a beautiful 37 year old woman. Look at this photograph. Don’t the both look totally regular and normal?

Am I hallucinating? This type of thing happened in the United States right here in New York? According to Reuters: 

Muzzammil Hassan, founder and CEO of Buffalo, N.Y.-based Bridges TV which launched in 2004 with a mission to show Muslims in a more positive light, was charged after reporting the death of his wife, Aasiya Hassan, 37, on Thursday night.
After Hassan, 44, told police his wife was at the Bridges TV offices, in the village of Orchard Park, they found her body there, beheaded, The Buffalo News reported.

I am trying to digest this story but I am having trouble. I cannot wrap my head around this one for nothing. I mean, WHAT?  WHAT? WHAT? Okay, you know what. Maybe I need to stop blogging and wake up tomorrow and find out that this was a figment of my premonitions and it is not real.  Cause, I mean, what kind of person does something like that? This man is being described as a “prominent man in the Muslim community.” Prominent as in what, for god’s sakes? WHAT? This guy lives in the United States? Not some remote village somewhere where people behave in a barbaric manner and do things like this to a family member? Their wives? The mother of their children? This is off the charts.

What could she have possibly done for him to do this? Is he on drugs? How do you cut off your wife’s neck and then go to the police and tell them she’s in your office and have the police go and find your wife in your office with her head chopped off? And where exactly is her head relative to the rest of her body? Huh? Is it nearby? In another room? What? Where is your wife’s head, Muzzammil?  What did you even use to do this? How is this orchestrated, Muzzammil??? How does this happen? This makes no sense whatsoever.

It really doesn’t.  I mean, I read that “Muzzammil Hassan was arraigned before Village Justice Deborah Chimes and sent to the Erie County Holding Center” but what does that mean??? I think I am going insane. I am really, really going insane. Please somebody help me.
