Our allies in Saudi Arabia (you know, the people we absolutely love, adore and lavish praise upon despite having many, many good reasons not to), are trying to punish a man who paralyzed another man in a fight. Their idea of a good punishment? Having a doctor render the man in question paralyzed as well.
What a terrible, awful country. You don’t do things like that to people, you just don’t. This clearly has nothing to do with justice, it’s just about revenge, retribution and pain. Society as a whole does not improve by having this man rendered a burden on the rest of the country (and yes, I know that in better, more civilized nations he wouldn’t be, but we’re taking about Saudi Arabia here, where civilization has been dead for centuries).
This is a terrible aberration of justice and I really sincerely hope no doctor will cooperate.
