Justice in Sweden

In an honor killing that involved the bludgeoning, burning (with hot oil) and stabbing (23 times) of another Muslim, an 18-year-old man is given 4 years of youth detention because he was only 17 when he committed the crime. From The Local in Sweden.

The 18 year old responsible for the brutal 'honour killing' of 20 year old Abbas Rezai in Högsby last year has been sentenced to four years' youth detention. His parents were cleared of all charges by Kalmar district court.

After serving his sentence, the 18 year old will be deported from Sweden and banned from ever returning.

Kalmar district court awarded Abbas Rezai's mother 113,000 kronor in compensation.

In its judgement, the court wrote that the crime for which the 18 year old was found guilty was deserving of life imprisonment. But the sentence of four years' secure youth detention was due to the fact that he was only 17 when the crime was committed.
This is social liberalism and Islamic fundamentalism all in one ugly portrait.
