The Man Who Threw Acid In The Face Of 4-Year-Old Girl Just Learned His Fate

Our nation’s laws are constantly under debate. For every person out there that believes things as they stand are far too strict, there’s another person that thinks there are not enough laws on the books. The same thing applies to our nation’s penal system. While some feel that the punishment doesn’t fit the crime in plenty of instances, others think that sentences handed down aren’t harsh enough.

As the Daily Mail shares, the difference between our nation’s laws and penal system and that uf some other nations is that our systems are constantly evolving. Changing times call for a reexamining of some long-held beliefs from time-to-time, but that’s just not an option for other countries. Some subscribe to dated ways and beliefs that make observers heads spin, but there are also times when it seems like those outdated ways are more than appropriate.

For example, an Iranian man was recently slapped with some harsh punishment for his deranged actions. It seems that he blinded and disfigured a toddler by throwing chemicals in the child’s face. No word on what led him to commit such an unfathomable act, and there was understandably a ton of outrage over the sick crime.

Although it’s not used often, Iranian authorities determined that this horrific crime qualified for what is known as an ‘eye-for-eye’ punishment. As such, the man was sentenced to have acid thrown in his face so that he too could be blind and suffer as horribly as his victim had. While that’s pretty far out of left field and a little much for some observers to take, others opine that the man got what he deserved.

There’s no easy answer to this one. The man committed a repulsive crime, and that would warrant extensive jail time in virtually any society. But is that enough of a punishment? Advocates of eye-for-eye sentences think not, and they generally take the concept of punishment that fits the crime to a whole other level.
