Founder Of American Muslim TV Network Charged With Beheading His Wife

A Buffalo-area man who founded an American-Islamic television network is accused of beheading his wife.

Police say 44-year-old Muzzammil Hassan told police Thursday evening that his wife was dead at his office. That's where police found the body of 37-year-old Aasiya Hassan.

Hassan is now charged with second-degree murder and police
believe the killing occurred sometime late Thursday afternoon.
Authorities say his wife had recently filed for divorce and had an
order of protection that had him out of the home as of February

Hassan is the founder and chief executive of Bridges TV, which
he launched in 2004 in hopes of portraying Muslims in a better
light. The Bridges TV website stated their aim was to foster a greater understanding among many cultures and diverse populations

    They got sidetracked into an economic debate when Tad mentioned the free-market economy. I don't know. He must suffer from ADHD. Tad was the bait-shaker. :D

    How you guys and gals got side tracked into an economic debate, I am not sure. I'm not going to track back to find where the thread changed direction. The real issue here is that we have radical Muslims living right here among us, and this particular sect was supposedly trying to demonstrate to us (Americans) that they are not radical. Now this guy has beheaded his wife. So much for his intended goal! The point is that we as Americans had better wake up. They have TRAINING CAMPS all over our nation and we are sitting idly by and letting it happen. The next terror attack will probably be launched from right here inside our borders by people who are already here. We have our heads stuck in a rectal area, and if and when we finally pull it will be too late!

    You all have done ran Old Tad away. He reminds me of the old woman, Agatha Trunchbull, on Matilda. Bitter, arrogant, and insecure.

    So, now Tad is claiming to be an economics major, huh? Must not have been very good at it, if he's managing a restaurant now, as he claimed in a different discussion. Too bad colleges don't offer refunds, Tad. You'd certainly qualify for one.

    Tad, You really have a problem. I didn't defend any of the examples I gave as good or bad, I simply stated that those examples are why we have a MIXED economy. I notice you didn't state where you got an economics degree.

    I don't see how these discussions go off on such tangents, but they're usually interesting anyway. They're especially interesting when Tad gets owned.

    Tad, don't try to correct someone for "misspelling" your name. I'm sure he did it on purpose since you seem to manipulate the names of others. And liberals are only bed-wetters in their twenties when they see people like you! By the way, you got owned! Yeah, "George Bush is my Homeboy" got you. And his posted name is not too long. You're just lazy, but have the nerve to talk about others being lazy. How hypocritical can you be?

    Tad, dude you just got punked!! Let it go, and find another forum to rant and rave about. With those $100.00 words you use, it should not be a problem. Educated, yea right!!
