Because it`s satirical of the propaganda we here in the American school system are brought-up to believe... that all savages are noble, and all civilized men are savages. Haven`t you been through the public education system?

Oh, my, because we most certainly want to point out matters of race, now don`t we? Anybody has the capability to kill someone. So, why the hell is race brought into it now?

It is a form of the "Ordeal". They used it way back in the day, and still use it there at times. Normally it involves heating up a giant ladel until it is red hot and the person must lick it three times. Somebody inspects the tounge and punishment will insue if there is a burn.

Or maybe we could go Braveheart on them, and then we could rip out their groin and stomach. We could pour hot oil on their entrails, and shove it into their face. We could cut off their limbs one by one as they scream in agony. And, then, we could slowly saw their head in two.

Justifiable punishment?

Much more entertainment than old boring lethal injection?

Get a freaking hold of yourselvs, people.

This was based on an old India folklore. The "boiling oil" is supposed to be just plain room temp water. The "guilty" would be afraid of the burn and would not stick the hand all the way in the pot. The "innocent" has nothing to fear and therefore, would put the hand all the way in and get it wet. The "guilty" one would be the one with the DRY hand. Well, somebody screwed that up!!

During the middle ages, mainly during the inquisition, they did this to people suspected of being witches.

"then decided to take the law into its own hands"

They can say that again! If I were them I`d flick the oil in their eyes after I`d dipped my hands in, they`re punishing the innocent to a severe degree, that`s crappy justice in my opinion.

Maybe they should just throw them all in boiling oil, and God`s wrath will determine who stays alive and who doesn`t.

The dead ones are guilty.

bet that`ll stop the guy from stealing food from kids again. or the next guy who wants to.
i think we all do need harsher punishments!!
this one had no logic to it, but maybe if they knew who did it and made THAT guy burn his hands. then send him to jail!

That`s horrible. Kind of like that lady who had to lick the burning coal, and if her tongue ended up blistered she was guilty.
