Reviews

"... it has been up to humans to decide in what manner death should be administered. Both the Bible and history record some terrible methods, include burning, drawing and quartering, flagellation, dismemberment, and crucifixion. Modern technology added the electric chair, gas chamber, and lethal injections."
