In France in the 1700's executions were not uncommon & the condemned were decapitated by the country's Chief Executioner. This position was hereditary & in 1726 Charles-Jean-Baptiste Sanson suffered an early death leaving his 7 year old son Charles to take over these grisly duties. The child  could not wield the heavy ax required to chop off a head until he reached the age of 12. So in the meantime a surrogate performed the executions. However the law required young Charles to put the official seal on the act, which he performed admirably after witnessing the gruesome deeds.

Maybe that is why the French invented the guillotine eh?

The guillotine was invented in order to speed up the number of executions during the Reign of Terror, an executioner would get tired wielding the axe all day long, not so with a device to do the job.
In fact the Scots "invented" the guillotine, they had a contraption called the maiden which pre-dated the French version by 230 years.

If I'm not mistaken, the guillotine replaced garrotting as the French form of national execution

Sounds a little milder that drawn and quarters but still ends the same I guess. Executions in the civilized countries of the world has gone the way of Dodo bird. It's odd at the number of innocent people executed in the States that are now coming to light since DNA evidence was introduced. What do you say to a person who you have stuck on death row for 20+ years and find out he's not guilty. Sorry really doesn't cut it, does it. Even worse what do you tell a persons family after you have execute someone and find out later that he/she was innocent.

Mostly vindictive women giving false testimony in rape cases. Hell hath no fury, Pete. In reality you pay the victim or family.

 Mostly vindictive women giving false testimony in rape cases. Hell hath no fury, Pete. In reality you pay the victim or family. I watched something about a guy in Texas getting the needle. It was his wife who may have lied and got him to where he was. On the day she was there and I guess he must have been yelling and swearing at his wife. Calling her a liar and telling her she knew the real truth Gov. Perry said later that he had heard him. When it was thought that the guy might have been innocent, they asked Perry who I guess must have signed for the execution and also witnessed it, what did he thing. His answer was, well if you had heard the way he was talking to his wife, you would know he was guilty.

I imagine I'd be up set and doing a lot of yelling at my wife too, if she knew I was innocent and she was just being vindictive.

The early 1950s here were a bad time for wrongful executions. Four men hanged between 1950 and 1953 have since been shown to be innocent, or at least not guilty of a capital crime, too late for them of course.
Two hanged in the early 1960s are also said, by some, to be innocent, but there are no moves to look into their cases as yet as the evidence for their innocense is not strong enough to warrant a formal investigation.

Yes, they far outnumber those who've been wrongly convicted.

Of course you are right, Mark. I will gladly add to my tax bill to provide for the families of those wrongfully convicted if Pete will do the same for the victims of those rightfully convicted. I wonder whose tax bill would be more?
