Report: Saudi judge asks hospital if it can damage convict's spine after he paralyzed man

A Saudi judge has asked several hospitals in the country whether they could damage a man's spinal cord as punishment after he was convicted of attacking another man with a cleaver and paralyzing him, local newspapers reported on Thursday.

As an RN I am going to be horrified if they find a hospital willing to do this.

What is even more me distressing to me is that this country is an ally of the US.

Why don't they just hang the bastard, i mean they don't seem to have any qualms about chopping heads off and disposing of troublesome women and others.

The softer side of Islam, seeking medical punishment.

With anesthesia and proper post-op care too? I wonder if they will arrange for home health care afterward, if discharge criteria is not fully met.

Oh, they're our GOOD FRIENDS, Chuck. Yeah.

So much for do no harm, eh?

MK, remember it's supposed to be a spine for a spine - it's in the Koran

LA, all good and probing questions.

Sue, welcome. Very good point. Scary isn't it?

Brooke, it would be sad to see a doctor do this.
