Sadly Noted. I feel she should have gotten one or the other. Jail or whip,whip but NOT 90 of them. Thanks Cal

Cheree how can you say such a thing !!!!!!!.To beat or jail a 13 year old child for having a mobil is outragous,OK maybe she should not have had it in school but this kind of punishment is not on.How can you think its ok to beat a child once or 90 times..Abusing kids will not teach them right from wrong.If this is how you deal with kids I pity any in your charge.

I agree with Big Cat there is too much testosterone running those countries and look at all the violence. Maybe that is because the way they are running things is not natural. It needs to be in balance male /female and over there forget it. They are insane!!!

Human rights? Nah! Human Wrongs.... Saudi Arabia is amongst several countries that have terrible human rights records.

90 lashes can kill a person! This is a serious human rights violation.
