I'am a reformed murderer, honest!

An ex-convict on a Turkish dating TV show admits he killed two of his earlier partners, and served long prison terms..

He is now looking for another partner and promises he has reformed... http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-27349394

Amazingly nobody checked his police record. But then would the TV companies do that here? I don't expect them to.

Poor bloke. Still, that would be one relationship where you would think twice about complaining about him replacing the toothpaste lid or putting the toilet seat down...


On the plus side, you'd never dare ask him to build a patio, would you?

Re: I'am a reformed murderer, honest!

So killed 2 partners and a cousin- what on earth is he doing free?

Men who kill women on 'regular' basis are rarely reformed- having served his time or not (and he should still be behind bars) 14 years for 3 murders??? - same for peodophiles.

His first wife was his cousin, whom he murdered out of jealousy. He killed the second woman (his girlfriend) by accident with an axe. I guess that was manslaughter.

Oh right, that's OK then - green light alround
7 years for each murder- that seems fair...

England releases murderers after they have served just over half of their sentence, subject to good behavior. Do you think the death penalty should be brought back to be on the safe side

He served his time.

That's how justice works in civilised countries (and Turkey, apparently).

Re: I'am a reformed murderer, honest!

Don't let us go down that road.

The first question is should he be on TV? My second question, would any of us suspect we were dating a murderer?

The Turkish TV show earlier, http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7885898.stm

Any of us could be a murderer. They're not a different species, you know.

Re: I'am a reformed murderer, honest!

If he is reformed then good luck to him. Its not a chance I'd take, without a very, very long period of trust-building.

Perhaps if you ever have a daughter who has shared her life with a violent man for some years, and who you later find out has been violent to every woman in his life and has a multiple criminal record to that effect- you might feel different. If he'd killed my daughter and got 7 years- even though I am NOT for the death penalty- I don't know what I would have done.
This is why we have judges and law courts in civilised countries (and Turkey).

7 years for violent murder of a partner is not civilised, sorry.

Are you saying your daughters partner has been violent to her repeatedly over many years yet chooses to stay with him?

How do you know? You weren't at the trial.

You do understand the principle of the rule of law, don't you? Or do you prefer mob rule?

He got less than 7 years each. Each time he was release after 4.

The second woman was a married woman who he was in a relationship with. She didn't want to leave her husband, he tought she was after her money and that's why he killed her.

Him saying he is reformed murderer is a joke as he doesn't take any responsability for them. Many many times during the show, he kept saying it was destiny they died. Destiny??????

The show producer said they know he did prison for a crime but took him in thinking he needed a chance as he serve his time. The thing is, they didn't know why he was convicted.

You don't give the chance to a pedophile to work with kids because he served his time so why to give the chance to a women killer to help him with finding a new wife????
He had nothing to do on this show and they should have done proper background check. She was right to kick him out of the show. There are enough violence against women in turkey, let's not promote it by allowing this kind of people.

I am happy he got on the show so now women are aware of his past and convictions. If they are still interested, it will be at their own risks.
