Mrbogey: fnordfocus: And, surprisingly enough, it's going to come from Republicans like LA Sheriff Lee Baca rather than misguided left-wing political correctness.So it's going to come from Republicans that Democrats like and not the Republicans that they villianize?
God-is-a-Taco: Huh, Bangladesh? I figured it was going to be an Islamic country, but I figured somewhere like Saudi Arabia, Iran, France, Afghanistan, UK, Pakistan, or Sweden.They should to go back to elephants and 6-armed blue guys. No one would sin if Vishnu was watching.
thisiszombocom: how did i know this would involve brown people/ but not the religion of peace? surprising
StashMonster: ah wait ...In 2002, Bangladesh introduced the death penalty for throwing acid and laws strictly controlling the sale, use, storage, and international trade of acids.
brap: That's a retribution stabbing that any jury in their right mind would applaud.
AverageAmericanGuy: Crazy that he wanted her back.
God-is-a-Taco: I figured it was going to be an Islamic country ... Sweden
StashMonster: I didn't bother to watch the 10 minute video that goes with this, although I have no doubt it would help.My first reaction to this was frustration - how was she persuaded exactly? There must be a lot more to this. I expect it comes down to lack of other support services that she would be able to access if she lived in other countries.It might be pointless expecting there to be any such things in Bangladesh, though. How in hell's name it would be possible to make all the social changes needed for her to be able to be really independent of her husband's family (and blind as well) I have no idea.It doesn't seem right that signing some affadavit got him off the hook. That's the only thing I can think of that the government of Bangladesh could see to right away that would generally change things for the better - take a hard line on this sort of behaviour. But then again I've seen someone do less than a year for cutting his girlfriend's throat in this country (UK).Oh fark it. The whole world in general is just so messed up. I despair.
OtherLittleGuy: I am not saying that they should be dextered, but they should be dextered.We can also accept "Michonned" and "Carled".
nytmare: Do these third-world freaks keep acid lying around to throw at potential home invaders? Science experiments? Hunting? Or do they keep a flask handy just to throw at any woman who crosses them. Why is it so common to have a barrel of acid handy to toss around in the heat of passion?

Why is it so common to have a barrel of acid handy to toss around in the heat of passion?You can buy muriatic by the gallon in every major city in America with not a whit given. They use it for cleaning concrete and it's available in every hardware store Want sulfuric acid? Go to an automotive place. Many will sell it as battery acid.Either way, 3-5 bucks and you'll have more than enough.Flouric acid is especially nasty in that it kills the cells quickly and will cause them to slough off hours after even though you'll feel no pain. No clue on where to get that stuff. Mail-order at least.
francisright: I'm appalled at the reaction of most of the commenters of this forum.It's important to realize that every culture is different. Instead of vilifying the man, we should try to understand the cultural upringing that led to his particular decision.
Amos Quito: "...left blind by the horrific attack [...] she cannot look after herself."Truer words.../No, srsly...//If YOU were an alien...///Would YOU land on this planet?
charmbomb: This is going to sound pandering and naively American, but can I take her in? Like, sort of adopt her? I have money and a home with extra rooms. I would like to give her or someone like her a chance at education and a life... :( I see a lot of these stories... they make my heart ache.
jjorsett: Prey4reign: Greta_VanHouten: Poor woman. I hope some human rights group will be able to take her to some western nation where she'll get medical care and be kept safe. Someone should throw acid on the mother in law who bailed out her scumbag son.Proposing an horrific solution to an horrific act doesn't really advance us as a people.Are we really sure about that? If appropriate and certain retaliation resulted every time one of these acts was perpetrated, don't you think that most people would conclude the crime wasn't worth the cost to themselves? I'd count it as advancing ourselves as a people if it cut down on the number of women burned in the face with acid or subjected to an honor killing.
iheartscotch: jjorsett:This is, after all, the area of the world that even the Romans had trouble keeping in line; the area of the world that Alexander the Great couldn't conquer.
Langdon_777: iheartscotch: jjorsett:This is, after all, the area of the world that even the Romans had trouble keeping in line; the area of the world that Alexander the Great couldn't conquer.Genghis could have done it :) or at least Temujin.
fnordfocus: The only thing that confused me is if the same people really think Obama is a Sekrit Muslim, why they didn't support him, but then I remembered that he's black.
lohphat: When your culture treats women like chattel and systematically renders them incapable of living independently through withholding of education and career opportunities, don't be surprised when they're mistreated and rendered vulnerable as family burdens to be bought or sold.
fnordfocus: This is what we have to look forward to when the US starts to enforce Sharia law.And, surprisingly enough, it's going to come from Republicans like LA Sheriff Lee Baca rather than misguided left-wing political correctness.
JonnyBlack: I'm pretty tame now that I'm a bit older, but I want someone to kill this man. Not a farking revenge killing, no gore porn or bullshiat fantasies, just put a farking pistol at the base of his skull, angle it up, and make him dead. He's not a farking human, he needs to be eliminated like any other dangerous animal. fark me, we might do a hell of a lot of farked up shiat to each other as humans(and I've been a happy part of that tradition, I'm no saint) but there are limits.
Honest Bender: As seen in some movie or show:Wait until douchebag is asleep.Pour large pot of cold water over him.Tell him if he ever steps out of line again, the next pot will be boiling water...
