YoOjo: It's hardly an eye for an eye if someone's getting chopped over the back like a water buffalo in front of Col. Kurtz, is it?Or does he have eyes on his shoulders? Oh wait, did the first guy lose an eye, or did he get stabbed in the back? Right, because if he did the it makes sense, if you change it to 'back for a back'.
SevenizGud: if it is torture to do this to this criminal, then what would has actions towards the other guy be categorized as?
LewDux: Ali al-Khawahir left his victim paralysed a decade ago and is now facing the same fate from the waist down if he fails to pay compensation of one million riyals (£176,000). Al-Khawahir's mum has been begging wealthy philanthropists to come forward to contribute to the fund.Farkers, we you can save him, we you have Paypal technology
Fade2black: I'm ok with this. I sometimes wonder if the eye for an eye response was implemented here in the states.
Daedalus27: Question: If he has been in jail since he is fourteen years old, how can he be expected to earn the 1m riyals that have been awarded? If he is paralyzed, who will support him and his lack of prospects, allah?Wouldn't it be better to put his ass to work caring for his victim or working and paying his debt awarded? After all if they paralyze him, the victim gets nothing.
malaktaus: If you support the death penalty- and, what, 85% of Americans do?- why would you consider this sick?
Gyrfalcon: But how does this benefit the victim?If they really want to "make the punishment fit the crime" and all that, and the criminal isn't paying up, he should have to serve his time as the bound servant of his victim. Waiting on him hand & foot, obeying his every whim, wiping his ass when he shiats, etc. Make him actually pay for the result of his crime, and benefit the victim. While I'm sure the victim will have some mental satisfaction from knowing the attacker is also paralyzed, I don't see how it helps anyone out in the long run.
Capo Del Bandito: Recidivism cut. Problem cut. Someone vile is removed from the picture.The problem is...?
Bravo Two: Meh. Zero farks given. There are occasions where the victim should get a good shot in at the attacker. Rapist? Punishment is rape by horse using sand impregnated lube. fark civility.
Gawdzila: Wow, buncha sickos here. I see some people have trouble with the whole "two wrongs don't make a right" lesson.
Lionel Mandrake: Fade2black: I'm ok with this. I sometimes wonder if the eye for an eye response was implemented here in the states.Wonder about what? Whether we'd be as shiatty and barbaric as they are? Probably.
fusillade762: Capo Del Bandito: Recidivism cut. Problem cut. Someone vile is removed from the picture.The problem is...?You're OK with rich people being able to buy their way out of punishment?
MichiganFTL: Fade2black: I'm ok with this. I sometimes wonder if the eye for an eye response was implemented here in the states.We're banning Big Gulps and dodgeball, wondering is as far as we'll ever get.
Eps05: /if the victim was a girl he'd be a local hero.
Capo Del Bandito: fusillade762: Capo Del Bandito: Recidivism cut. Problem cut. Someone vile is removed from the picture.The problem is...?You're OK with rich people being able to buy their way out of punishment?You act as if human life *doesn't* have a coin value.Humans are not born with some innate value that is 'priceless'.People have worth. If someone is going to pay that ransom, make sure it's a good ransom.
