Default Mirror Punishment?

I'm not exactly sure what kind of "debate" this would spark. But why has this method never been used here for punishment? Do you agree with it/disagree with it?

Here's an example of what I'm talking about:
Quote:
Madrid, Spain (CNN)- An Iranian woman living in Spain is welcoming a Tehran court ruling that awards her eye-for-an-eye justice against a suitor who blinded her.
In a Spanish radio interview, she says her aim isn't revenge -- it's to make sure her suffering isn't repeated.
Ameneh Bahrami was blinded and disfigured in 2004 when a man she had spurned threw acid on her. Late last year, an Iranian court reportedly ruled that Islamic justice calls for the attacker to be blinded with acid, too.
But the victim says she is entitled to blind Majid Movahedi in only one eye, because under Iranian law "each man is worth two women."
She also says he would be blinded by having several drops of acid put into one eye, whereas she had acid splashed all over her face and other parts of her body.
She says she's waiting for a letter from the court telling her to go back to Iran for the punishment to be carried out.
Bahrami tells CNN she first crossed paths with her attacker Movahedi in 2002, when they attended the same university. She was a 24-year-old electronics student. He was 19. She never noticed him until they shared a class. He sat next to her one day and brushed up against her. Bahrami says she knew it wasn't an accident.
"I moved away from him," she said, "but he brushed up against me again." When Bahrami stood up in class and screamed for him to stop, Movahedi just looked at her in stunned silence. Bahrami said that over the next two years, Movahedi kept harassing her and making threats, even as he asked her to marry him.
Then one day she was leaving work and he snuck up behind her. When she turned around he threw acid on her face.

I'd LOVE to see it used.

Revenge justice is obviously never a good thing. That being said, if someone was to hurt my family I would have a hard time restraining myself.

These countries have so far to come, I'm surprised the guy that blinded her is even gonna get punished at all.

Even if it's ruled through the courts? I think if it was "controlled, watched, and regulated" it could be a good thing.

I don't even agree with state sanctioned murder, but now we are talking about state sanctioned torture. You don't see how that is immoral?

I think He should be blinded completely.
I find it interesting how these countries look down on women, and most males are raised in the US to respect them over all.

Yeah I'm serious. I think if we had that kind of punishment it just might deter people from committing crimes.

I'm not saying it should be used for stupid petty crimes but heinous crimes (rapes and murders)
