On January 1, 2008, Yaser Said murdered his two teenage daughters, Sarah and Amina, in Texas. He would later say that he was upset that his daughters were dating American boys and that they were becoming too westernized. Yaser escaped capture with the help of family members but was eventually apprehended and held responsible for his crimes.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the acts committed by Said and what he has referred to as honor killings. Yaser Said was reported to be abusive to his wife and children. His wife Patricia left the home with the children on multiple occasions, but she later said that Yaser threatened to kill her family if she didn't return. Were these murders honor killings, as Yaser has claimed, or did he say that to try to justify these unthinkable acts?
