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."

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

There's something about this pic I find oddly
comforting & I'll no doubt be called a sick freak
but I for 1 believe Ling Chi to be a martyr & you
can clearly see she is seeing beyond our sick &
evil world & looking into a beautiful place it gives
me a grain of hope of a better place on the
other side.
