Saudi judge considers paralysis punishment - Yahoo! News

Saudi man gets paralyzed by a cleaver-wielding attacker, then asks the judge to have the attacker paralyzed as punishment. The judge is searching for a hospital to perform the procedure, but so far they've refused on either ethical or practical grounds.
Now this is just disturbing if you ask me.

What are your thoughts, do you believe that's the punishment he deserves?

Well, I'm in favor of equal punishment for crimes.... but not literally. I don't think any person should be subjected to a torture such as this.

I also think and eye for an eye is appropriate at times but.....

I believe there should be something learned from any punishment. At minimum the goal of the punishment should be a lesson. I fail to see how anything would be learned....

Also, the person may have been unstable.

I would like to see the person receive psychological help and eventually suffer within the prison of their own mind.

If they were to actually do that, it would cost more because then he would be living off of the taxpayer to pay for him to get along in life. They should just stone him......

I wonder what they were fighting about???
