An Afghan diplomat was charged Friday with beating his wife "like a dog" for more than 15 hours in their Queens home, prosecutors said.
Mohammed Fagirad, 30, a vice consul at the Afghanistan Consulate, brutalized his wife inside their Flushing home from about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday until nearly midnight, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.
During the attack, Fagirad bit, slapped, choked and beat the 22-year-old woman with a belt, pushed her down a flight of stairs and sat on her chest, prosecutors said. At one point, prosecutors said, Fagirad threw his wife up against a wall, held her there by the neck and then let her drop to the floor, where he beat her with a belt. Fagirad told police his "wife was a dog and he was going to treat her like a dog," prosecutors said.
When Fagirad left the home, his wife fled and went to the 109th Precinct stationhouse, where she filed a domestic violence report, prosecutors said. She then returned home. When Fagirad returned, he demanded his wife's cell phone and called police to file a counterclaim, prosecutors said.
The woman, who was not named, was hospitalized for bruises and scratches to her neck and back. Prosecutors said Fagirad's limited diplomatic immunity only covers work-related infractions.

I thought it was pieces, head, arms, feet etc."If every poor man is to come here and start requesting money for all his children, the applicants will never be satisfied and the nation's finances will collapse." Emperor Tiberius: Tacitus:Annals

If he pushed her down the stairs, it seems to me they could get an attempted murder charge. To only charge with abuse isn't enough. He'll get out in no time.

Sic Hacer Pace, Para Bellum.
Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

We're talking about somebody who thinks it okay to beat dogs.
If you can't treat a pet nicely, you probably shouldn't upgrade to the human equivalent.

I think he reserves it only for religions who don't automatically condemn that behavior and that teach that women are "less" than men.
Christian men usually want to take the wife abusers outback and give them a taste of their own medicine, but hopefully restrain themselves and let the law take care of it.
