Crucified Pedophile

Post by JensJohansson » Fri Nov 06, 2009 11:07 pm

No, it's not the name of some Norwegian metal band...
RIYADH (Reuters) - A Saudi court of cassation upheld a ruling to behead and crucify a 22-year-old man convicted of raping five children and leaving one of them to die in the desert, newspapers reported on Tuesday.

The convict was arrested earlier this year after a seven-year old boy helped police in their investigation. The child left in the desert after the rape was three years old, Okaz newspaper said.

International rights groups have accused the kingdom, the birthplace of Islam, of applying draconian justice, beheading murderers, rapists and drug traffickers in public. So far this year about 40 people have been executed in Saudi Arabia.

In Saudi Arabia, crucifixion means tying the body of the convict to wooden beams to be displayed to the public after beheading.

Can't they just chop off his microphallus? :roll:

Although, what he did was twisted. I'll say crucify him but let him live. Torture without executing him. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

From what little I know about Saudi executions, the beheading probably went pretty quickly- much more so than the pain he inflicted on those kids, and not to mention leaving one in the desert to die.

I just got an image in my head of pedobear, beheaded, on a crucifix.
I just died a little bit.

I guess I would vote no...obviously you have to be totally insane to do what he did. With that said, there is little point in torturing someone for having a mental illness. It would be different (maybe) if his crime was a calculated risk, like robbing a bank. Or raping a horse. :lol:

That's true, but I don't really follow the argument that any punishment is ok as long as it isn't more severe than the crime. That would be like burning down an arsonists house, just because we can.

Perhaps that would fit the crime... I don't know.

Saudi Arabia is still stuck in the 1700's when it comes to such issues.

But it really progressed to 1800s' in other issues, like women's rights ... In about 100 years they'll be really progressive.

The much better punishment would be a castration and then letting him go, together with publishing his picture on every lamppost.

Trust me, I lived there for 9 years as a child due to my dad's work... not a very pleasant place I must say.

See, that's the thing... for me, it's about as horrible as a crime can be. I really have a sensitive spot for crimes that involve children. What punishment does fit this crime? Instinct says things like castration, stoning, etc. On the other hand, we are a civilised, modern society and should not forget that.

I'm glad I'm not getting into criminal law other than the basics in my studies. In my view, it's by far the most difficult area of the legal profession.

I don't think the criminal justice system in Saudi Arabia bothers to deal with lesser crimes if someone's already committed a big one. What are they going to do, imprison the corpse?

I don't think a public beheading should even be considered legal, but the guy definitely deserves an ass kicking or long jail time.

Yes, but it's the same as saying 'They really shouldn't have burned people suspected of witchcraft in the 1500's'.

The Saudi Arabian legal system likes to think that it's in the middle ages.

True... The Saudi Arabian system is from the middle ages, or even before that, like cutting off the hands of thieves (even petty thieves!), and as if that's not bad enough, they do it without proper trial (only 4 witnesses required).

However, do you think you wouldn't feel urges to kill somebody if they raped YOUR child ? or left YOUR child in the desert to die ? Would you then agree with the Saudi legal system, or the European legal system (a pat on the head, and a few years in prison, and useless attempts to make that individual capable of being amongst society again ?? )

Just some thoughts I wanted to throw in the air in hopes of a civilized discussion.. :)

Exactly.

But with the rather glaring inadequacies and lack of transparency in the Saudi legal system, how do we even know that this guy DID commit those crimes? If he didn't, then the real rapist is still out there.

This goes for all other crimes, too.
