    this is unbelievable. we need to become oil independent.

    CAIRO A Saudi judge has asked several hospitals in the country whether they could damage a man's spinal cord as punishment after he was convicted of attacking another man with a cleaver and paralyzing him, local newspapers reported on Thursday.

    This eye for an eye stuff is BS. I hope no hospital gives him an answer he is looking for.

    When it first came up, it was a good policy because eye for an eye was originally instituted to curtail punishment given to a criminal. However, we're now even further from that point now and eye for and eye is a very simplistic and at times barbaric practice. Base everything on the rights and liberties of the indivudal and you'll be much better off for it.

    It's barbaric, but you cannot argue that the punishment does not fit the crime.

    I don't think it does. I don't believe the punishments handed down from the government should mirror the incidents of the crime itself. There is proper action the government can take, and there is action which must be restricted. You can't allow cruel and unusual punishment techniques. especially going so far as to medically paralize someone.

    Why ever not, after all the US Military regularly doles out cruel and unusual punishment to their prisoners.
