WOW! The people of Greece were just sold down the river YET AGAIN!!!! WTF

Everything is for the protection of the greedy bankers... I think social unrest is about to explode and Greek gubmint will be toppled by angry mobs...

All the U.S.A. is missing is a swastika like symbol - or has it become the flag?

it has to be just right, to long and you decapatate the person and to short you dont brake the neck on the fall.

Its a hard one

The Guillotine has none of these problems. It's also much faster in operation.

The Guillotine is too classy, curbing is warranted.

I think I am going long torn up chunks of sidewalk caked in bubbly blood. I was really impressed during the UK "you can't goto school" riots where they ran out of rocks so pulled up the sidewalk for more projectiles. Very nice, good clean message when you tear out the road and toss it at your oppressors.

But that would be cruel...letting just the tips of their toes touch the ground.

Guillotines are so much faster. The French eliminated 350,000 elites in a few months. At the time the population was about 4.5 million.

True, but they suffer more when you hang them. Although for sheer terror, making them lie face-up on the guillotine would be matchless.

the 350,000 actually took a couple years.  They had more than one guillotine.

Where are the bodies hanging from the nooses?  Didn't the Greeks watch enough Westerns to know how to use these things!

Or do as the Chinese do. Bullet to the head. Then bill the deceased's family for the bullet.  I wonder if that would stem our social and ethical collapse.

And guillotines would be more analogicaly appropriate,  sending a more historically chilling message.

That's why you need to attach names to them, so nobody misunderstands whose head goes in it.

For added points, make a rag doll and put that in the noose, also with a name on it.

There are ways to do a lynch mob correctly. Seriously.

What happens if the rag doll is black, and the name tag happens to fall off?
