A new twist. Really? This was MSNBC's old twist:
"We're not going to cry, if that's what you wanted. We're not going to take off our scarf, if that's what you wanted," Alawadi's eldest daughter, Fatima, said at the vigil, addressing her mother's killer.The new twist is that there was friction between the daughter and her boyfriend, who didn't like the fact their parents were going to marry her off to a cousin per tradition. There was also friction between the deceased and her husband, who were evidently heading for divorce. So another epic media fail could be in the works. Go figure.
For many in El Cajon, the case has drawn parallels to that of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teenager shot in Florida last month by a Neighborhood Watch volunteer in a killing that has also drawn outrage because of its racial undertones.
