Never SurrenderWhat she did was wrong and against the law in that nation, now shes getting severly punished, however the same people then condemn Horn who followed texas law but said it was too extreme are saying that she deserves the extreme punishment.

That's just intellectual dishonesty, like the case of Joe Horn and this one would really be the same. It takes more than just "neither apple or lemon contain meat so they are the same thing" type of thinking.

Though this is just as useful as debating with a pile of stones.

Exactly if she blew herself up and killed 10 people, they would give her the "ay ok".

A perfect example of a totalitarian society spilling over with sexual repression.

Religious law over reason, and sense...

It was her own stupidity thats gotten her in trouble. She ignored the laws or didn't take the time to look them up and memorize them. Now, I want to make it perfectly clear that I don't support what I'm about to say here. If you're going to do something intentionally stupid that gets you in trouble with the law, learn the location of your embassy and either plan your crime around that area or make sure you can outrun the police officers so you can get to your embassy. Once again, I just want to say I don't support that, but it has a good chance that the odds would turn in your favor. Also, when did she assault the officer? I just read that she panicked.

First of all: The law is wrong Second of all: She is stupid Third of all: How will prison help her? She'll be poorly treated, but come out of it as some kind of martyr against the cause of Islamic law with people supporting her actions. I don't feel she was trying to do this for any real cause, she was drunk, and when you're drunk, you're stupid, and when you're drunk in an Islamic country, you are a peabrain that is beyond stupid; the point being, she'll be and probably already is an attention whore, much like Paris Hilton, but with years of jail time and no solid gold toilets to go home to.

I purposly tried NOT to comment on the opening post, even though I still equated Bush as always being bad and every other country gets a damn break around here and other gaming forums for some reason. The only reason I can remotely think of is a severe generation gap, I am not all right wing-republican, and no where near soooooooo far radical leftist as these forums seem to be..

Damned if you do, damed if you dont, since I have 356 neg rep points with 600 posts.You people must have not grown up in a rough neighborhood because this aint reality as I know it.

Close the thread if you want.

Before it's closed, considering you are from Germany, you will never get it, we need some USA moderators, thanx. By closing the enlistment thread, I might as well be under the power of hitler IMO.

We could just extradite her back here and let her go free, could we not?

Also, doesn't Islamic law blame the man involved for everything, so she should get off scott-free? Considering how women are held with such little regard in Islamic law, they can't exactly treat them as if they were men by giving them the same sentencing.
