I tried to save our family from your dishonor
25 September 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

A classic episode involving third world culture, that is so different from ours. Honor killing is something occurred a long time ago in my country (luckily only in the south), but right now not anymore. A young Pakistani girl born in stateside is killed and something is written in blood next to her with reference to 9/11. Detectives thought at first the murder was related to racial issue: an orthodox jew, with whom she had an argument because of a video shoot, was cut loose thanks to a rabbi's deposition; beside she was in love with an Italian American boy (whose family didn't approve the affair) and she was 12 weeks pregnant. But Goren and Wheeler had to dig a lot more to find the truth.

This episode shows the rage growth in Muslim population after 9/11 attacks. Anyway it's not easy to them to deal with eastern culture, I think people so radical had better stay in their country of origin (not all of them of course, only the one who can't integrate)
