In Iran, where Sharia law applies, a guy threw acid in a woman's face. He asked her to marry him, she refused, and later he tossed the acid in her face. Anyway, this time the law was on the woman's side. Her face was melted and she was blinded for life. In a direct "eye for an eye" sentence, the judge sentenced the man to be strapped down in hospital, sedated unconscious, and enough drops of acid be carefully dropped in each eye to blind him for life. By the woman he blinded. The judge also ordered the man pay her compensation money. The woman refused to take compensation money from him, but agreed to be guided to drop the acid in his eyes with her own hand, as she wanted him to directly experience what she had to live with so he understood what he had done to her, and in hopes that the increasing number of acid attacks on women would stop. Human rights organisations world wide protested the sentence and asked that it be commuted.

An article.

I remember reading about this.

How tragic to ever have to have that kind of desire; To want or need to cause someone so much pain.



Did you not see the picture of the woman in the article linked? Were that me, I too would wish to dispense justice in an "eye for an eye" manner. I'm not saying it's the right thing to do, but I do understand it, and I'm not at all sure there's an adequately fair alternative.
