Iran cuts off right hand, left foot of prisoner...

This is just sickening.
Iran’s Islamic judiciary cut off the right hand and the left foot of a prisoner in the volatile town of Ahwaz, southwest Iran, state-run dailies reported Tuesday.

The individual was identified only as Adel A. and had been charged with armed robbery. An Islamic court in the town of Mahshahr handed down the sentence of amputation of Adel’s right hand and left foot in public.

Iran’s State Supreme Court upheld the sentence, which was carried out inside Karoon Prison in Ahwaz.

if he was guilty of armed robbery, I don't have that much sympathy for the guy.

It's the poor people shoplifting a loaf of bread who get a hand cut off that is barbaric (not to mention stoning women to death for being raped.)

Of course, due process isn't all it's cracked up to be in that dung heap so who knows what he did or didn't do?
