    Default Thug hoiks woman's eye out of window

    What's the world coming to when a fellow can't do a bit charlie and get smashed on Superlager? Then pluck his ex-girlfriend's eye out with a bit of light thumb pressure & a coat hanger and throw it out of an eighth floor window.

    Do the eyes have it? You decide.

    A man who gouged out a woman's eye and threw it from an eighth-floor balcony has been jailed for attempted murder.

    Francis Murphy, 26, was convicted at the High Court in Edinburgh of using a metal coat hanger to prise out the eye of 27-year-old Natalie Farrell in May.

    Judge John Morris QC told Murphy his crime was almost "medieval" in its barbarity and would make a right-thinking person "recoil in horror".

    Murphy, from Dundee, was jailed for 12 years.

    During the trial, Ms Farrell described the attack at her home in Dundee's Dalfield Court on 26 May this year.

    She said she had ended her 10-year relationship with Murphy and had started a new partnership with another man.

    However, Murphy turned up at her home, attacked her new partner, then grabbed her and said he was going to take out her eye with a metal hook.

    She described how he tried at get his thumb and two fingers into her eye and pull it out.

    She said she passed out when Murphy began throttling her.

    When Ms Farrell regained consciousness her eye was on her cheek hanging by the optic nerve.

    Murphy then grabbed it and threw it over an eighth-floor balcony.

    Ms Farrell said she only learned that her eye had been pulled out when a friend found it and gave it to paramedics.

    Her neighbour, Noel Pittham, told the court that he watched Murphy try to force Ms Farrell over the balcony as he attacked her.

    The court also heard from Ms Farrell's friend, Jade Hall, 24, who recounted hitting Murphy with a brush to try to stop him from attacking her friend.

    I think I'm going to pass out now. Damn you, vivid imagination.

    I suppose notoriety suits some characters. Mr Murphy looks every bit an "eyeball gouger" - a term I've only ever heard used on the rugby pitch.

    Maybe Murphy can start up a prison rugby team?

    The tales of casual violence from Scotland tend to be particularly lurid.

    Hmmm, quite the charming man I should say. Must've loved her eyes. Wonder what quotes he said to her when they were together. "Darling, Your eyes glitter like the morning sunset at autumn's fall."

    I honestly don't understand how someone could do that to a person. It's so physically/mentally gross and horrible.

    I wonder why she broke up with him. He sounds like a swell fellow.

    Look, I dont know why we cant simply execute people responsible for things like this on the spot, no one locks up rabid dogs and attempts to rehabilitate them, no at best its a decision as to whether the dog get shot or darted and exterminated "humanely" later.

    I say just kill them, kill them in sufficient numbers that the rest of them will be afraid enough to stop killing their wives and children.
