Forced to Eat Pork Muslim Wife Slits Husbands Throat

NEW YORK — A devout Muslim woman says she slashed her husband’s neck with a kitchen knife as he slept because he forced her to eat pork, wear short skirts and drink alcohol in violation of her religious beliefs.

Rabia Sarwar, 37, a native of Pakistan, pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and was freed on $25,000 bail. She told police in a written statement that she was emotionally abused by her husband, Seikh Naseem, and forced to violate her religious beliefs.
“I did my best to cut his throat,” Rabia Sarwar wrote. “But the next moment he jumped on me and grabbed me.”

Cops: Crime in the Neighborhood? Move Out!

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Residents of Ohio's capital city are complaining that police officers are telling them to move out if they're fed up with neighborhood crime.
At least two Columbus city council members have heard the complaint.
An aide to Councilwoman Charleta Tavares says she has received more than 20 calls. Councilman Andrew Ginther says if police are making the comments, they're neither acceptable nor appropriate, though he says he believes most officers want to be helpful.
A police spokesman says the department addresses the complaints when it's given the name of an officer.
A police union official says he understands if officers are frustrated with crime. Fraternal Order of Police President Jim Gilbert says: "It's like the OK Corral out there."
