Sometimes I just wonder how inventors of the past came up with such animalistic ideas of torturing a human. It is not my place to judge but, isn’t really our right to let such harsh actions take place under our understanding?

If you think the legal and formal sentences and penalties that criminals have to pay for in this generation is cruel and inhuman, you should see what used to happen decades ago. Just one word, BRUTAL!
The face of law and order has seen the dawn of new era with an evolved system of punishment according to their respective crimes.
#1. The Coffin Trap.
The criminals were often stuffed inside a mini iron coffin, the sizes differed according to how serious the crimes committed were.
#2. The Spanish Donkey.
Prisoners were seated on the sharp wedge and heavyweights were tied to their legs in order to slice down their body through the middle.
