Beheading

The Corrections Museum

Bangkok, Thailand

Prior to the introduction of the firearm Thailand used beheading by sword to guarantee that the prisoner would no longer be up to any more mischief. After the 'head-man' had done his job one of his helpers would chop off the prisoner's feet so that the leg irons could be recycled. Thailand's best loved executioner came from China (he is pictured here). By the way, like in America, the condemned man was entitled to choose his final meal.
