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."

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.

Jesus christ some of you guys are total pussies... "No one deserves that, that's just fucking sadistic"? In case you didn't notice in your bubble of ignorance, SOME PEOPLE DO DESERVE THIS. Imagine if you had a kid and someone raped and killed it, you saying you wouldn't subject them to this and much more? Step into the real world and open your fucking eyes, humanity isn't all candy floss and flowers, shit like this happens, get over it

Bring this back and put it on pay-per-view, give the victims families the profits from the pay-per-view!!! Jail is no deterent for criminals, and it certainly isnt rehabilitation either. Prisoners live better than most people in the free world. 3 meals a day, medical care, a bed to sleep in, and no bills to pay. To hell with those leaches, they show no mercy or compassion while committing crimal acts so why reward them with compassion and care. An eye for an eye.
