AT FORT LEAVENWORTH TODAY

A great number of people are now attending mandatory counseling on the 'proper' treatment of their newest death row inmate.  If I was running the place they'd be getting issued baseball bats with little tiny carpet tacks studding them. "Not more than 10 full power strokes delivered to the prisoner in order to motivate him to shower, shave, eat, die. Stick to the extremities. You don't want him dead before justice has authorized it."

This one is guilty. He needs to beg to have sentence carried out.

  1. I sort of like the old British Raj solution of wrapping him in pig skin and them blowing him out of the end of a cannon.

    1. Bacon and eggs for breakfast, BLT for lunch, pork shoulder followed by pound cake for dinner.

      It was only last week that we drove through my old Post and I showed her the old home, the older home (Custer's) and the old Stockade that was alive in my day there. The Federal Pen is elsewhere and we didn't bother to go there. I figured Custer Hill was enough.

      My God how it all changed over the decades.

  2. Blowing from a gun is a method of execution in which the victim is typically tied to the mouth of a cannon and the cannon is fired.

    As reported; "The prisoner is generally tied to a gun with the upper part of the small of his back resting against the muzzle. When the gun is fired, his head is seen to go straight up into the air some forty or fifty feet; the arms fly off right and left, high up in the air, and fall at, perhaps, a hundred yards distance; the legs drop to the ground beneath the muzzle of the gun; and the body is literally blown away altogether, not a vestige being seen."

    Feed what is left to a saddleback pig - and then name the pig Nadal Hasan. Just my ten penneth worth.

    1. I'd pay as much as a pound to see Nidal Hasan disposed of in that fashion.
