Daily Outrage: Man runs over his daughter for being ‘too Westernized,’ then tries to flee

WHO: Faleh Almaleki

WHAT: The Iraqi immigrant is accused of running down his daughter with his car for being “too Westernized.” Almaleki was returned to Arizona over the weekend following his arrest in Atlanta on aggravated assault charges. He was sent there after having been denied entrance into the United Kingdom.

WHY IT’S BAD: A dad running over his 20-year-old daughter and her boyfriend’s mom in a Peoria, Ariz., parking lot with his Jeep is bad enough. But compounding it with the dad’s frustration over his daughter allegedly disrespecting the family by failing to live by traditional Muslim ways is unspeakable. Almaleki has lived in the United States since the mid-1990s, which means his daughter has grown up with the iPod generation. She remains in serious condition; the other woman is in serious but stable condition.
