An eye for an eye?

Now I am not sure what I think of this one. Here we have a woman who was blinded by acid in an honor crime. She has asked that instead of blood money being given to her from the criminals family she wants the full eye for an eye treatment. She has asked that he be blinded by acid just as she was.
Now as an individual fate for this particular man I find it hard to find fault but I cannot swallow a legal system that goes in for such a brutal system of “balance”.
While I certainly think a society has a right to protect itself from those who would harm it we cannot take liberties with the concept of mercy.
