Anyone remember the Muslim TV station owner from Buffalo who carried out an honor killing against his wife? Well, guess what? He may claim insanity as his excuse for the brutal beheading. No mention of Islamic teachings, whatsoever.

Islam, the Insanity Defense: Beheading Honor Killer Mo Hassan to Cop Insane Plea
The murderer 'wanted to improve the image of Muslims.'
"Back in February, a prominent Buffalo area Muslim businessman who founded the BridgesTV network to improve the image of Muslims in the U.S., beheaded his wife after she filed for divorce. He beheaded her at his company’s office in Orchard Park, N.Y.
When a lone jihadi or 'honor' murderer gets caught, the MO is to cop the insanity defense. Why doesn't CAIR scream about defamation/insulting Islam? Clearly, if Muslims murdering in the name of Islam are insane, then Islam is a mental illness. Right?
Man accused of killing wife to get mental examination
'Lawyers may seek insanity defense
Muzzammil S. “Mo” Hassan, who is accused of beheading his wife, is expected to undergo psychiatric examinations that will determine whether his lawyers will be able to raise insanity issues at his upcoming trial.
During a hearing Friday, attorney James P. Harrington told Erie County Judge Thomas P. Franczyk that psychiatric examinations of Hassan, 44, are expected to be completed by mid-September.
Hassan, who was born in Pakistan, cofounded Bridges cable TV network, based in Orchard Park.
He has been jailed since turning himself into Orchard Park police about an hour after allegedly beheading his estranged wife and business partner, Aasiya Zubair Hassan, 37, in their TV studio on Feb. 12.
The week before, the victim had filed for divorce and obtained a court order of protection against Hassan, to keep him away from their Big Tree Road home — the scene of a dozen domestic problem incidents in recent years, according to police.
On March 12, an Erie County grand jury indicted Hassan on a single count of second-degree murder.
The victim, Hassan’s third wife and mother of the two youngest of his four children, was attacked in the Thorn Avenue office of the Muslim-oriented cable station the two launched about five years ago.
The couple’s children currently are living with relatives under court supervision.
During Friday’s brief court session, Colleen Curtin Gable, the chief homicide prosecutor in the case, complained to the judge about “repeated demands” of the Erie County District Attorney’s office as to how Harrington plans to defend Hassan.
Harrington, without showing his legal hand, told the judge and prosecutor he has been “working through some practical matters” in the case, which have delayed Hassan’s “evaluation” by defense mental health experts.
After prosecutors receive the required pretrial notice on the defense strategy, they will be able to arrange for their own mental health professionals to examine the defendant — if insanity-linked issues are part of the defense strategy.
After Harrington said he is confident he can provide prosecutors with his defense strategy by mid-September the judge scheduled another session in the for Sept. 18. To give both sides enough time to prepare Franczyk has scheduled a tentative Jan. 19 start of jury selection in the murder trial.'
Man, they work our system, don't they. Vile. The guy should get the death penalty."
