    The last executioner

    An excellent article here > CLICK < about Chavoret Jaruboon, the Bangkok Hilton's executioner for 30+ years.
    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    What a life... and what an end to his life.
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    Hes amazingly understated and matter of fact about his job.
    Remind me and I'll give it to you Rob when I next see you.

    I dunno.
    They broke down the job into so many roles , that it almost seemed that he didnt 'kill' them.
    And , while I often observe the Thais being very hard hearted people , they have a real aversion to taking life.

    It was the 'broken machines' who were shot , according to him.
    Not that he was placed face to face with them at the end.
    Somebody brought them.
    Somebody strapped them in place.
    Somebody marked the spot on them.
    Someone else the corresponding spot on a screen.
    He walked in and squeezed off 3 rounds, then 3 more , then 3 more if somebody indicated that was needed.
    Then left.
    You know , he names some of the criminals, and these were the worst of the worst , who had numerous people that had witnessed their crimes ...again according to him , but I guess verifiable.
    Some spooky stories of course , of people who lived through this.
    Thai stories wouldnt be Thai without the , um , 'spiritual' side.
    If I remember rightly , a woman who lived and was reprieved...

    Without wanting to sound too contentious , I feel theres nothing wrong with ridding society of those with a drive to commit multiple murder.
    m talking about the multi-witnessed , caught on tape , or self admitted murdering kind.

    ( Of the 5 Thai women here now , they ALL said , hands down , that if there is absolutely no doubt about
    a multiple murderer being guilty , then that murderer should die.)

    ^I agree. Still hard to kill someone... can't be good for your mind to kill so many people, no matter how evil they are? I know it happens in war, but even then, there are issues later often enough.
