At least Holland seems to be smelling the coffee. When will America?

This is saddening. Is this usually the type of punishment for this?
Seems extreme to me...

Shari'a law. In light of Islamic scripture, not extreme at all. Par for the course. He wasn't supposed to die, but flogging is pretty brutal.

In Iran, age 9 is considered "of age."
