Three teens to have fingers amputated for theft in Iran

Three teens to have fingers amputated for theft in Iran

Iran has reportedly sentenced three teenagers to have their fingers amputated for stealing. The three minors, Hadi Rostami, Mehdi Sharafian and Mehdi Shahivand, lost their appeals in the Iranian Supreme Court this week and were subsequently ordered to have four fingers severed from their right hands. It is unclear when the judicial measure will be carried out.

Ok now guys let’s remember that to criticise this is islamaphobic and we wouldn’t want that now would we. So let’s all do the more progressive thing by praising this and import more of it into the West

Most Muslims are in favour of Sharia law and this type of punishment so let's not pretend it's the minority. Please see the link carried out by Pewresearch to verify these claims. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/08/09/muslims-and-islam-key-findings-in-the-u-s-and-around-the-world/%3famp=1

This is beyond all human dignity and is a severe Human rights violation. I now support Trump against Iran.

Oh well they knew their countries laws and ignored them so bet if we actually had laws like this crime would go way way down fast

The left also doesn’t support this either do don’t act like we do. The government is terrible and thats how most hyper religious right wing conservative governments end up. This is the reason why the left hates the right because if it supports your narrative you would defend these actions so long as trump approves of it and thats the problem. Trump isn’t a god he is just a corrupt man. The sooner the right learns this and moves on the better.

Just yesterday, Nigeria made a law for surgically castrating rapists. Now this. While these laws are made to punish, I wonder if at all it leads to any deterrence? And shouldn't that be the goal really? Deterring crimes rather than handing out bodily harm, especially over crimes as silly as thievery?

Yes, that's what Iran needs, a workforce without fully functioning hands. Genius.

I'm curious as to the lifelong effect this has on the "criminal". Are they shunned into a life of crime? Unless I can be seen otherwise, the punishment tells me that the attitude is being marked "once a thief, always a thief" as they would have this and be judge by it without an option for rehabilitation. Would there effect if the punished was found innocent later? How does that work?

This is very cathartic for anyone who's ever been robbed. I wish only that the summary included a description of what they have stolen. If they stole food then the punishment is an atrocity.
