I never thought I would be applauding Iranian justice, but I think I have to on this one. It is a little over the top, but throwing acid in the face of someone who rejected you is absolutely ridiculous - I think the sentence is justified and sends a clear message to others that they should think twice before doing something like throwing acid in the face of one who has rejected them.

I don't think 'eye for eye' applies in the instance you cited.

However. just recently India's Supreme court decreed that the death sentence is appropriate for those who commit so called 'honor' killings. It's about time!!

I think that they CLOSE family members should be able to, because lets say, your daughter got kidnapped, raped/assaulted, murdered, or physically wounded, close family such as the dad, mother, siblings (older), grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins should be able to decide what happens to the criminal. If my child or relative was assaulted in any way, or murdered, I would not want them roaming around. They should be locked up at the very least. Execution only if nessesary!! I am still tender on that topic, but If they have murdered numerous people they are simply too dangerous to have alive. Think about it.

Not a good idea. If the defendant is convicted by Due Process, then the punishment has to meet DP and that entitles them to 8th AM protection.

While some would be more lenient, some would not, and ALL must be dealt with according to the Bill of Rights.
