Halocho #431 - How often can one murder the same person?

Causing a person's blood to drain from his face is considered murder.

In Hebrew, embarrassing somebody is referred to as מלבין פני חברו - whitening a fellowman's face; since the blood drains from his face when embarrassed.

Embarrassing somebody is forbidden - whether verbally or otherwise - and could make one lose ones portion in Olam Haba - the world to come.

Embarrassing somebody is forbidden both in private and obviously in public.
