digital video montage dealing with guillotine execution in the early part of the 20th century; most notably that of eugene weidmann in 1939. the enthusiasm of the crowd, as well as the fact that the event was filmed from an apartment window, became major factors in the french governments decision to ban public executions. as a result, the weidmann execution was the last public guillotining in france before the death penalty was finally abolished in 1981. musical setting is the viola solo "elegie" by igor stravinsky, performed by miles hoffman..

It was often practiced to hold up the just cut-off head by the hair so it
and the audience could look at each other. Tales of up to 30 seconds,
responding by blinking, once twice but failing to reach tree times, and
making faces after being slapped. Because real evidence is covered up,
it's probably not good.

Death is not instant with the guillotine. The brain and the body do not
"instantly" die. Because it is so swift, the head and body go on for
several minutes. They say the eyes can actually see right after the
beheading. Death is never "instant" unless pulverized, like in a plane
crash where the plane smashes into a mountain or the groud at high speed.

@ipage1 Thank you commenting. Most humans are heavily conditioned by
religion and misconception on life. Each one that awakes from the daylight
dream is an enormous step because he enlightens all around without doing
anything. So, if you "know" you become responsible. Waken up and we will be
just fine.

@Neemeess french didn't invent it. there were machines similar in use in
other countries. (look up Brown Bess, par ex.) french made it more
efficient by angling the blade. so, instead of chopping, it sliced.

Author BloodOfYeshuaMessiah (9 months)
For those that think this is a quick humane execution think again. It is
well known that blood remianis in the head continuing to supply blood and
oxygen to the brain for up to 30 seconds. This means the individual remains
alive and aware for up to 30 seconds after decapitation. By far the best
form of execution is a Hyperbolic Oxygen Chamber similar to what pilots
train in. Gradually oxygen is reduced inducing painless sleep followed by a
painless death.

@kanedonny The firt Law to ever be institutionalized was Capitol
Punishment. The reason for it was to put into the minds of the poplace that
murder is a bad thing. or in some extream cases that revolts would not be
tolerated. It's ment to be horrific. Most sates within the USA have banned
exicutions, And what replaces it? In Maine the death penetaly is 25 years
for horrifically, sadistically murdering a woman. That to me isn't justice,
but it'll have to do.
