An eye for an eye is a very simplistic way of looking at a complex subject in which a society needs to maintain order while at the same time not becoming that which it vilifies since that's wrong and things that are wrong aren't right and so that is why an eye for an eye is bad and as an example of how an eye for an eye is useless and stupid I'm going to make my entire post a run-on sentence improperly punctuated grammatically incorrect to prove that doing to others that which has been done to you only makes for a stupid backwater world..........
Or we could move forward, learning from that which came before.

States that do not have capital punishment still have the same number of offenses as those who do.
I hate to say it but it is not necessarily true. People commit crimes no matter what the punishment is.

How about a compromise?
Put the guy in prison, or house-arrest/electronic tag him, for 2-5 years, with a medically applied, unremovable blindfold. A life sentence, even, for the hardliners.
This punishment is harsh but humane at the same time.
