It's A Panic

A gay panic. It's all the, well, for lack of a better word, rage these days. Men kill other men because of a pat on the ass. But what about the panic that arises in a man when he finds out his wife has left him for another woman? What does he do with his rage?

A London man has been sentenced to nine years in prison, after which he will be deported, after an "enraged" and "frenzied" attack on his ex-wife, after she told him she thought she was a lesbian.

Adel Hdili, originally from Tunisia, left his estranged wife, Gail Hdili, blind in one eye and scarred after attacking her repeatedly with a knife at a bus stop last January. Mrs Hdili had recently left her husband after confessing that she thought she was a lesbian and had moved in with a woman she had befriended online.


The attack took place at a bus stop outside the woman's home after Hdili traced his estranged wife there using the address she had listed on her eBay account. He waited for her outside the house and followed her to the bus stop before attacking her, even though their five-year-old son was present. The boy screamed at his father to stop the attack, and Hdili was eventually restrained by witnesses.

Hdili pleaded guilty to wounding with intent after originally being charged with attempted murder. His lesser plea was accepted by the court.

Wounding with intent? His rage suggests something far more sinister.

Maybe we should start the "breeder panic" defense. Seems only fair.

Don't like someone? Want him dead?

Go ahead and kill him! Just tell the police he glanced in the general direction of your crotch and you had gay panic. Oh, make sure you stab him at least 61 times.

It's like a get-out-of-jail-free card! The cops will give you a high-five and send you on your way.

It doesn't make any sense. How can that be a defense. Very sad.

What is wrong with the judicial system? This is so wrong in so many ways. I'm aghast!

Gay panic is just another excuse for not taking responsibility for your actions.
