      All of those execution methods are more cruel than just decapitation/bullets to the head because they frequently botch, they don't do it because it's graphic and doesn't LOOK "civilized" enough

        This is correct.
        People act like decapitation is barbaric etc but its really only a benefit to those doing the capital punishment and people being shocked by muzzies.
        In ye olden days beheading was the greatest mercy only afforded to aristocracy.

          Beheading is very rarely ever over in a snap anon. It's usually botched, requiring several swings, or they saw through. The guillotine is really the only thing that made it remotely "humane" or "merciful".

    Because despite America carrying out loads of executions, Americans are surprisingly uncomfortable with the idea of the death penalty.

    While it's seldom directly acknowledged by the authorities, there's a very real effort to aesthetically distance the act of executing a prisoner from the reality of killing. People say the goal is to minimize the convict's suffering, but it's really about finding a way to end a person's life without visibly damaging their body in a way that might be disturbing to spectators. So we use electricity, or inject poison, or suffocate them with gas, because all of these things leave the convict looking as though nothing has happened to them. Sure, shooting them or beheading them would be far quicker and more certain, but that makes a mess and forces the viewer to confront the visceral reality that the state has murdered a person.

        Well, that's the whole point. American execution methods are meant to look as little like a killing as possible to reinforce the distinction between a sanctioned kill and a murder.

        If they just had a police officer walk up to the condemned and shoot him in the head with a pistol, it would be much harder for people to ignore the similarity between an execution and a murder.

            It's not necessary if the goal is low crime rates - there are enough national case studies of that. Their use of caning and hanging is just the result of early 20th century British legal influence, a less individualist attitude, and the memory of the opium wars and a time when the city was notorious for crime and lawlessness.

            The opposite seems to be true in the case of Germany. Their crime rates were higher in the 1970s-80s, but that period saw a lot of penal reform in the BDR, like near-abolition of life w/o parole and improvement of prison conditions. There's also certain crimes where there's little room for leniency, like terrorism, child sex abuse, mass murder or murder aggravated by sex abuse or the age or status of the victim. It's not like those crimes don't exist in just about every country, just like lesser crimes like burglary and assault.

    This is a topic I'm interested in
    It actually stems from post-christian European neuroticism of nation-states and the church
    Europeans and the church would torture you to death for knowing your ancestor's runic alphabet script. They would torture you to death for picking mugwort in the woods and claim witch craft. Whites have such an ingrained, domesticated slave mentality after 1,500 years of christendom scared to know what a Germanic or Nordic rune, or making sure you name your son a nice hebrew name like Matthew or John instead of a pagan name like Thorir.
    Nothing wrong with murder. But throw a homosexual into a bog to drown and be done with it like the good times. But post-christendom introduced all this goofy, moronic israeli golden bull burning shit from the Middle East
