A Saudi Arabian woman has been sentenced to 200 lashes for being gang raped by six men; this was her sentence after a retrial! The original trial had sentenced her to 90 lashes, but her own lawyer found that punishment too lenient, since she could have been given the death penalty according to Saudi law. The woman violated the Islamic doctrine of Wahhabism, which "forbids unrelated men and women from associating with each other, bans women from driving and forces them to cover head-to-toe in public."

UPDATE: I misread the Breitbart article: the woman's lashes were for getting into a car with a man she wasn't related to, NOT for getting raped. Because that's so much better! Also, her lawyer thought the sentences on the men were too lenient but unfortunately got a judge who just increased his client's sentence. D'oh!!

@nowimpissed: Yeah, she wasn't sentenced for being raped — but for being in a car with her rapists, who happened to be unrelated men. Kind of like if police in the West charged a rape victim with underaged drinking while also prosecuting her rapist. How black-hearted.
