A 24 year old man, Ali Al-Khawahir,reportedly has been sentenced to being surgically paralyzed in Saudi Arabia.

When he was 14, Al-Khawahir stabbed a friend, who was paralyzed as a result. He’s spent 10 years in prison for the assault according to U.S. News and World Report, but now the victim is seeking “blood money” of about $270,000. If he doesn’t receive it, Al-Khawahir is to be paralyzed.

Al-Khawahir’s family is trying to raise money to make the payment.

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.

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?

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?

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.

That graphic omits the obvious:

Jesus of Nazareth.

The humble carpenter.

Suffering servant.

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?

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.
