    It is wasteful. It is turning a worthless person into a drain on society; the law should focus either on turning him into a useful person or turning him into a useful corpse.

    I can't quite bring myself to say "reprehensible", but it is misguided.

    Is it? How many men will throw acid in a woman's face or maim her in that country for the next forty years? More or less than if he simply went to prison for a few years?

    Do think that this man didn't know what would happen if he were caught? He committed this crime because he thought he could get away with it.

    And I'm not talking about wasting his life, which I consider worthless. It's a matter of wasting the extra resources he would require because of his disability.

    I'm on the fence. On one hand, this woman's entire face was disfigured and the pain she suffered was probably 100x worse than what this man will feel under a medically supervised punishment. On the other hand, it really doesn't solve anything. Of course, everytime his family asked me to forgive him it would be one giant push towards going through with the blinding. I kind of want to beat this guy to within an inch of his life, let him heal completely, and do it all over again, myself...but "want" and "do" aren't always synonomous.

    Think of all the women that won't have to suffer or take up "extra resources" if he is punished and punished well.

    You didn't read the first part of that post. Harsh punishments do not deter criminals who do not fear being caught. The only way to deter crime is to make it clear that they will be caught.

    I put not sure.

    I don't think I will have a lot of sympathy with my views, so I rarely share them on this topic.

    I view cases like this as a sign that a person is severely damaged and not able to be rehabilitated.

    So in cases like this, I look at the defendant about the same way I look at a rabid dog. They have demonstrated that they really have no place to fit into a civilized society, and should be removed from it. But if the victim would prefer another solution, how can I not take their views into consideration since they are the victim, not me.

    so not sure it is.

    And punish him severly. There is nothing wrong with actully punishing a crime.

    Detering crime is admirable but doing nothing deters nothing.

There is no doubt he is the one that committed the crime. His crime has caused her permanent injury that is impossible for anyone to right.

    A man should always do what is positive, what accomplishes an improvement.
    Revenge does not do this.
    He should be "put away", in order to protect society.
