    How do we define "justice" in the world from this...

    How do we define "justice" for a situation where a person alledgely kidnapped, drugged and gouged the eyes out of an innocent child, leaving him for blind?

    What would be FAIR punishment for this type of unthinkable act?

    Lock the person up and throw away the key and never allow them to see the light of day again.  That would be justice.  The natural reaction of course is to want to gouge his eyes out - but that would be vengeance and not justice.

    If it weren't for laws, the fair punishment would be to put him through what he put that boy through.

    But in today's society, proper punishment would probably be life in prison.

    Kidnapping is false imprisonment and a criminal act to be chargeable by criminal laws. The gouging out of the eyes and drugging the person i s a violation of the person, such as physical assault with bodily harm or more and is a crime that is a capital crime and usually draws the strongest penalty such as a death penalty. So the death penalty is 'justice penalty' for such an act against a person, more pronounced because of an innocent child.

      Hi IAccura!  This little child lives in China.  It was all over the news today.  I'm not sure what the penalties are over there.  The people in China are calling for the harshest!  The story really got to me.  It's terrible that someone could do that

    I think a fair punishment for this crime would, a prison term also some community service helping the blind.  Also some times theraphy would aslo would help both Lets help that child live a normal life instead of getting revenge.
