Oh yeah, you read it right, a Saudi Arabian court has been asking hospitals if they could sever a man’s spinal cord as a punishment for paralyzing another man. The Saudi defendant was in a fight over two years ago when he paralyzed the victim. Now the courts in Tabuk, Saudi Arabia want a local hospital to sever the man’s spinal cord as punishment for the crime. One Saudi hospital has already stepped forward saying they could perform the surgery. Amnesty International released this statement about the possible sentence: “We urge the Saudi Arabian authorities to not carry out such a punishment, which amounts to nothing less than torture”. Amnesty went on to suggest they give the man a hefty fine and a flogging.

You really know you’re up shit creek when Amnesty International is suggesting you get flogged. Jesus, those Saudis are f*ckin’ crazy. – Kid Chronic
