Brutality → Ling Chi (execution by slow cutting)

Ling Chi - execution by slow cutting - was practiced in China until it was outlawed in 1905. In the execution, the criminal is slowly cut in the arms, legs, and chest, until finally they are beheaded or stabbed in the heart. Many western accounts of the execution method are largely exaggerated, with some claiming that the execution could take days to perform. This is a particularly revolting image of a criminal who has been executed by this method.

One modern eyewitness report from Journalist and Politician Henry Norman, describes an execution thus:

"The criminal is fastened to a rough cross, and the executioner, armed with a sharp knife, begins by grasping handfuls from the fleshy parts of the body, such as the thighs and the breasts, and slicing them off. After this he removes the joints and the excrescences of the body one by one-the nose and ears, fingers and toes. Then the limbs are cut off piecemeal at the wrists and the ankles, the elbows and knees, the shoulders and hips. Finally, the victim is stabbed to the heart and his head cut off."

Sick... The human species is SICK! Or maybe just the man could think of such cruel ways to murder someone. I hope an outbreak occurs in which only the male of the species is affected, and wipes you all off the face of the planet! YOu know.. There happens to be a species of lizard whom are all female, and are still able to reproduce... It's called evolution.

Ling Chi was for severe crimes such as - in that region, honouring your parents is a big thing, respect them 110%..if you kill them, this is your punishment. Opium was given most times for 2 suggested reasons. Mercy or to make sure they remain awake without fainting throughout the punishment.
