Turkish boys commit 'honour' crimes

Nice to see the BBC reporting in the religion of pieces.

Young children - in some cases a woman's own son - have been used to carry out so-called "honour killings" in Turkey.

The duty of repairing the family's reputation is often delegated to a youth, believing they will get the minimum jail sentence, the World Service's Assignment programme has learned.

Now where does a 14 year old get the idea that he has to kill his own mother for the sake of the family's honour?

You gotta love this.

Instead of telling people honour killings are illegal or un-Islamic, some politicians have tried to tackle the issue from an economic angle.

They tell communities that honour killings can tear families apart, putting men in jail and children on the street.

Not to mention putting women in the ground.

That chirping sound you hear is the outcry from the Left.
