C’mon Baby, Light my Fire

An angry husband in Quebec doused his ex-wife with gasoline and set her on fire. The unfortunate woman survived the attack, but the extent of her injuries is unclear.

Despite the fact that the alleged perpetrator is a culture-enricher, the incident has a Mohammed Coefficient of 0%.

Video transcript:

00:00   The man you see on your screen is Fred Hadj Messaoud, 39 years old.
00:04   He’s the suspect who allegedly sprayed gasoline on his ex-wife
00:07   and set her on fire in the Saint-Sauveur district last Friday.
00:10   He appeared this morning at the Victoria park police station
00:14   by telephone for attempted murder and aggravated assault.
00:18   He was arrested Saturday morning in Drummondville. This afternoon he headed to the Quebec detention
00:23   centre where he will stay until his return to court. He may face life imprisonment in this case.
00:30   Considering that gasoline was used to set someone on fire,
00:33   it seems certain that he will be charged with attempted murder.
00:36   In this area the maximum sentence is life in very severe
00:41   aggravated circumstances. This will be considered, because
00:47   if it is done it would be done in the context of domestic violence,
00:51   and the courts will take that into account by imposing
00:54   a more severe sentence. —The 39-year-old man was a taxi driver.
00:57   He worked as a member of Taxi Co-op Quebec.
01:00   The establishment’s management reacted to the news
01:03   this afternoon by stating that a person with a criminal record
01:06   cannot be a taxi driver. A conviction would mean suspension.
01:10   Fred Hadj Messaoud should be back in court tomorrow
01:13   at the Quebec City courthouse. Pascal Robitaille for TVA news in Quebec City.

    Hadj seems like going to Mecca.

    Messaoud pretty much near the middle of Algeria.

    Could still be an “all faith” righteous man? or just an occasional attendee.
    Now is it a synagogue? church? or mosque?
    Nothing definite, mind you.
    Culture enriching delicacies.
