    Iranian man who blinded victim with acid has eye gouged out as punishment

    Davoud Roshanaei, who lost an eye and an ear in a 2005 acid attack, has postponed the retaliation punishment on his own attacker who was set to suffer the same fate on Wednesday.
    It was literally an eye for an eye.

    An Iranian man had his eye gouged out Tuesday after convicted of blinding another man in an acid attack, according to local reports.

    The unidentified man was first rendered unconscious in Rajai Shahr prison in Karaj before medics carried out the vengeful sentence on his left eye. The removal of his right eye was postponed, the state-owned Hamshahri newspaper reported.

    The punishment known as qesas, or "retaliation in kind," came five years after the man blinded and disfigured an unidentified man for life. In addition to the retributive procedure, which is decided by the victim under Iranian Islamic law, the convicted attacker was ordered to pay a fine and spend 10 years in prison.

    Another prisoner's similar procedure was scheduled to be performed Wednesday but was postponed until the first month of the Iranian New Year — beginning March 20 — local media reported.



    That decision was one reportedly made by the victim, Davoud Roushanaei, who lost an eye and an ear after a man, only identified as Hamid S., poured acid on him in 2005.

    It was the second time the sentence was postponed after a medical staff refused to perform the surgery in January.

    "The delay is from the medical side and is not our fault," a judge later told the state-run Iranian Fars news agency. "We had a meeting with the forensic medicine and they will let us know once there is a doctor who is willing to carry out the sentence".

    Non-profit Iran Human Rights in Norway, which has vocally condemned the sentences they deem to be "barbaric," hailed the doctors' refusal.

    "Participation in such punishments are serious violations of the Hippocratic oath and anyone who takes part in carrying out such sentences can not be called a doctor," they said in a statement in January.

    The punishment is nothing new.

    Ameneh Bahrami, an Iranian woman who was blinded and disfigured by a spurned suitor in 2004, was also given the option of reciprocating with drops of bleech in both of his eyes.

    In a moving display of forgiveness, the 34-year-old instead showed him mercy.

    "It is best to pardon when you are in a position of power," Bahrami said during her2011 court decision.

    Her selfish attacker, Majid Movahedi, called her compassion "very generous."

    "I couldn't imagine being blinded by acid," he said tearfully.

    Because study after study has shown that increased punishment is not a deterrent.

    What for? Not being your typical keyboard douchebag like you and your right wing compatriots? For not wanting everyone different than myself to be put to death? You are also a moron, dummy.
