An eye for an eye, a ganglia for a ganglia?
It’s a religion (or something).
An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. - Mahatma Gandhi.
Definitely not Christians.
Here’s a job to be looked forward to: Wiping up this guy’s s*** for the rest of his life. Where’s Mike Rowe when you need him?
Depends on how you look at it. Eye for an eye ~ certainly superior to our punishment system for drunk drivers who kill people.
Stabbed a Friend!??
So if he collects his blood money, does he have to go to prison for ten years to pay back the guy who paralized him and he now has had paralized?
It won’t be his ass, it’ll be a bag if they feed him at all.
One less active mooselimb to worry about.
Calling Dr. Gosnell! Dr. Kermit Gosnell please pick up the white courtesy phone,
Saudi Arabia needs you to “perform” an operation!
why did he stab his “friend”
So how much is somebody going to pay to support the paralyzed criminal? Shouldn’t they just go ahead and kill him, if what he did was bad enough to warrant paralysis?
So...I guess all cultures aren’t equal??????
You’re probably correct, I didn’t think it through. Probably a colostomy bag and a catheter, which means he dies inside of a couple of years from an septic infection in one of their filthy prison hospitals.
He was 14, so it was either over Skittles or a hand grenade.
Just guessing, his friend drew a cartoon picture of Mohmand.
“Stabbed a Friend!??”
Just being a Muslim, doin’ what MadMo did.
Who said that our ‘system’ is the only alternative.
That graphic omits the obvious:
Jesus of Nazareth.
The humble carpenter.
Lamb of God.
Unspoken here, is the relative status of the friend he stabbed at 14. Does anybody think that a member of a prominent family would be paralyzed for any offense against one of lesser status?
Such a peaceful religion.
what I was getting at was maybe his “friend” diddled him
Sure. Entirely possible. Or his “friend” objected to being diddled. Or maybe they were fighting over dibs on diddling the goat? This is Saudi, right?
Only sure thing is they weren’t dealing with a human female in the mix. Otherwise, there would have been acid involved.
