This is a picture of a man who is about to be executed using the execution device called the garrote.

The garrote is an execution device that is documented to have been used in the first century BC Rome. This torture method found its way into modern history.

The condemned would sit with a metal clap wrapped around his neck before the executioner turned the screw that would theoretically burst his brainstem, killing him instantly.

ME: Statistics show that the poor masses are mostly the victims of injustice and therefore, many of them suffer death penalty, and consequently face death by the garrote. Whereas, the elite politicians who steal public funds go unpunished. Unfortunately, they hardly face death by the garrote, but the poor defenceless masses, whose commonwealth the elites use to defend themselves. So sad.
