Blinded woman wants "eye for an eye"

TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) -- Ameneh Bahrami is certain that one day she'll meet someone, fall in love and get married. But when her wedding day comes, her husband won't see her eyes, and she won't see her husband. Bahrami is blind, the victim of an acid attack by a spurned suitor.

If she gets her way, her attacker will suffer the same fate. The 31-year-old Iranian is demanding the ancient punishment of "an eye for an eye," and, in accordance with Islamic law, she wants to blind Majid Movahedi, the man who blinded her.

I agree.  The punishment should fit the crime.

I agree with her and hope she gets her justice.  I believe criminals should be punished in the way they punish their victims.

 I support this woman's decision, I wish our justice system gave victims a choice about punishment.

I hope she gets her way! If it were the other way round though, they would likely kill her. By stoning no less!

Can they actually transplant his eyes to her or are they going to throw acid on his too?
