    An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth? Give them credit for taking a hard line against domestic violence. :shock:

    I suspect this one will not have a happy ending, although in rare instances these things do:

    I'm trying to come up with a worst case scenario. He did it to me; he did it to my wife; he did it my daughter; he did it to my 2-year-old GRANDDAUGHTER, and I still can't see myself injecting acid into another person's eyes as 'justice'. Doesn't this just make me as bad as the bad guy?

    It's better than killing the bastard, which is what a lot of people would want to do.

    This should be a capital crime.

    Come one man. Obviously, I can't read your mind and neither you or I can ever truly know what we would do in a situation like that, but I'll bet you'd be willing to do a lot worse things than that to him if he had done this to your wife, daughter or grand-daughter. When you went to the hospital and your saw your female relative fighting for her life with her face covered in bandages, don't you think your inner-barbarian would surface in its fury?

    In fury (caught him mid-act), yes! In cold-blooded revenge, not so much.
    (and yes, there is a difference)

    What about a day, or even a few hours after the act?

    Marlow would invite them around for tea?
