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."

This pic as always fascinated me even more so
since i saw the movie Martyrs which suggested
that the poor women in this pic had actually
achieved Martyrdom at the precise time the pic
was taken as you can see (if you believe in
Martyrdom )she is clearly grinning or smiling as
if she has crossed over into another state of
consciousness & seeing something we couldn't
possibly comprehend

我只想說,在中國古代,滿清十大酷 ,只有你想不到的,沒有做不到的。 遲處死只是其中的一種罷了。而且這 些刑罰是政府當時使用的。可見當時 人們是多麼殘酷。

Why was Ling Chi outlawed? I know it is gruesome, and
completely inappropriate though criminals need to be
punished, but what forced the government to change
the law?

mr han
"humans what a bunch of idiots, and man to his fellow man" but its true criminals should be punished and made to suffer these days instead of 3 course meals , playstation's in a warm cell no saying hit them or have captial punishment, we live in a cruel world so why are guys who killed children or other humans getting treated well ? when families suffer , go look at yourselves
