A Saudi judge has asked several hospitals if they are willing to damage a man's spinal cord as punishment for a cleaver attack that left a 22-year-old paralysed. The victim, Abdul-Aziz al Mutairi, became paralysed and subsequently lost a foot after a fight more than two years ago. An unnamed man was sentenced to 14 months in prison for the assault, but released after serving only half that time. The shortened jail time has reportedly enraged Mr Mutairi's family. His 27-year-old brother Khaled said they want an equivalent punishment for the attacker and have appealed to a judge in northwestern Tabuk province. "We are asking for our legal right under Islamic law," the brother said.

UNLESS like in England, you get a small blue disability badge to place in your car, meaning you get all the good parking spaces at supermarkets, right up close to the doors.

odds are that judge has sentenced at least one innocent man at some time during his serving,
should the judge be locked up for the same amount of time?
