http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/meast/02/19/acid.attack.victim/index.html Mods, please move if this has already been posted. Armeni Bahrami has demanded that the attacker who blinded her with acid when she rejected his marriage proposals suffer the same fate. An Iranian court has upheld the sentence that supports her wish, and it is likely her attacker will be blinded with drops of acid in the coming weeks. She has refused payment of the customary "blood money" which typically prevents the perps from receiving equivelent sentences. I find this story compelling because given the horrific crimes we discuss on a daily basis, what would you do in her place if given a chance to have the perp suffer in the same fashion as you have? I would not be able to mutilate another in this fashion, I believe. But I can completely understand her desire to hurt this man in the same way...to give him the same sentence.
