I can imagine some people being influenced by a crucifixion.

The Confederate soldier was peculiar in that he was ever ready to fight, but never ready to submit to the routine duty and discipline of the camp or the march. The soldiers were determined to be soldiers after their own notions, and do their duty, for the love of it, as they thought best. Carlton McCarthy

In Saudi, executions are a big deal. Paw gathers up the young'uns and Maw throws a picnic lunch together before everybody loads up and travels to the execution square. They have to get there early, because A) you have warm-up sentences, where just a hand or foot gets chopped off, and B) since it gets mighty hot in the middle of the day, they try to wrap things up by late morning.

Now, most common criminals have their head severed by a professional executioner in a single whack. But for some special folks, you get the very best executioner, and he takes three swings. The first swing is just enough to break the skin and cause superficial bleeding, along with pain. The second stroke severes the spine, but not the carotids or jugular vein. The third stroke takes the head completely off.

Entertainment at its finest. :thumb:

The rest of the body. I assume if they are anything like the Turks, they just let the body rot until it falls off.

BTW, the Turks tend to hang theirs off the bridge on JFK Boulevard...
