"Death by a thousand cuts"

I was alerted to this lingering death, a gruesome method reserved for criminals such as murderers and traitors in China from AD900 until its abolition in 1905. Throughout history, acts of cruelty to human beings know no bounds and it is merciful that today we do not condone such methods in meting out punishments for serious offenders anymore although behind the four walls of the prison cells, we hear whispers of atrocities committed to extract confessions.

  1. This is worse than the crucifixion of Jesus! It sickens me. I'm ashamed I watched the whole slide show.
