If she does it or allows it, she will be no better that him.

I have always viewed retribution this way, be the better individual, don't stoop to their level.

Now if we could just get the tongues cut out of lying politicians the MSM would go quiet, and elections would produce someone of value. NRA members could even participate in retribution drive by's. Could be interesting on the possibilities of the new equal justice system.

sure its crude, but you can't say he doesn't deserve it.

Yeah if you believe in revenge as the ideal of justice, it's totally understandable.


he was tried and found guilty. HE did this horrible thing to her, and now she will never see again. not to mention it being a horrible and traumatic experience. all she did was refuse him.

most people support castration for sexual offenders, especially child molesters. how is this so different? its a well deserved specific punishment for the wrong he did. is there an element of revenge? yes. but revenge doesn't have to be bad. if someone murdered my family, is it so wrong for me to want revenge? revenge is a combination of justice and anger, and as the justice side was taken care of in the courts, the anger side will be taken care of when he gets what he deserves.

"I completely agree.

Humanity needs to reassert its empathy and focus on patience, love and forgiveness rather than retribution, revenge and retaliation."

I'd love to hear that sentiment from you if something similar were to happen to you or a loved one.

Patience, love and forgiveness gets you only so far. In a large community or society it would be abused by criminals for a easy way out of their horrific crimes. This man deserves much more than being blinded by his victim. He went out of his way to literally mutilate and destroy a persons face with full intent, he not only destroyed her face, her life will never be the same. His punishment in my eyes is much too merciful. God loves him very much, because she wasn't my daughter or sister.

Revenge is a terrible thing...It turns the victim into the monster.

The petty part of me says at least for once, Islamic law is working for a woman. When is the last time a woman won the right to do anything over there?

Horrible all the way around.

Quite correct. What happens if the "perp" turns out to be innocent?

The cycle will continue.

you know what? I saw the before and after pictures of this woman, and say, absolutely,
'an eye for an eye' is an apt punishment for this crime. If the American justice system actually punished people, we would not have more prison inmates than the rest of the world combined. Putting people in prison for life solves nothing and does not create a deterrent for other criminals, our system CLEARLY Proves. Now, saying this, I am all for handling drug crimes differently and ensuring mental health issues are medically cared for as well, but rape, pedophilia, murder, theft, etc. these brutal crimes, these are not crimes to 'play justice' with.

That's all fine and good until innocent people get hurt. And we KNOW that innocent people get sent to prison.

I think the uy is getting what he deserves, in order to live in a civilized world we need uncivilized punisments for those who do bad things to people, murderers, rapeists, people who mug old people, and so on, criminals get well looked after when they go to prison, free food, free medical care, where the victim has to continue his/her life with out any kinda support

Who was it who said, "an eye for an eye and the whole world is blind"?

Oh Yeah, Ghandi said that.

What a moron, huh?

As much as I agree, when I have been hurt by someone, I enjoy the fact that they got hurt back, if that were reality, and enforced, would anyone be left?

That quote: An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind is true if everyone sinned at the one time and had there eyes poked out or poked them out themselves then people would certainly catch on in time...I would hope, but there are varying degrees of sin...and most importantly...WHO...ARE...WE...2...JUDGE!

All your sympathy appears to lie with the perpetrator. What about justice for the

Victim? My concerns with all these 'Human Rights' are that the actual 'VICTIM' gets

bypassed in the rush to protest the 'Human Rights of the perpetrator

Don't be so quick to assume this person hasn't had something similar happen to them, nor should you mistake wisdom for naivety.
