    A 21-year old man in Iran was just sentenced to one year in jail and the amputation of his hand for robbing a candy store. Seriously? These middle eastern barbarians make me sick.

      And doesn't your fluoride water make you sick ? And the death penalties, which by the way a lot of them had been injustices, doesn't that make you sick ?
      Instead of looking for faults in foreign countries, go and see your own.

    Well they only chopped off one hand. They probably thought they were being lenient.

    It would be interesting when they learn about disability and many other 'social' systems but maybe is not their time yet but in due time. tongue

    It's the law of the land. There are many who consider the death penalty to be barbaric too.

      Agreed. But I don't think we'd put someone in the electric chair for stealing a Snicker's Bar.

        The first three strikes you're out case in California gave life in prison to someone who stole a couple of packets of t-shirts.

      So I guess you are in favor of maiming someone as opposed to killing them?

      I'm not sure what to think about that.

    When you are dealing with mankind to deal out justice, you sometimes get less than desired results because their heart is deceitful and need to deal it out of the principle of love peace free and get to the bottom of the actions of a person and try to keep that action from happening again from that person. Be not deceived: whatever a man sows that is what he will reap.You must be careful what you sow in your life on earth because you will reap the fruit of it and hope that you get true justice considering everything that involved in your own free will decision that you make every moment of every day. Thank you.

    Isn't it in the Bible about cutting off limbs etc? I'm sure there are some on this site who would say it's okay.

    And there you go Jim, jumping to conclusions. Did I say I approved or disapproved of either?

      There you go ignoring punctuation again.

      It was just a question.

    Don't blame this on "middle eastern barbarians".

    This is the nature of government: remember the Salem Witch trials? not too many "middle eastern"ers in there!

    The truth of the matter is that government leads to these idiocies, no matter who's in charge.

    My thought is this, if you don't like their justice system don't move to that country, also if you think we are too harsh on criminals over here just think about how other countries handle things.
