Japan executes first three prisoners since 2010

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. You've got to admire this bit of Japanese psychology, make the bastards live every minute for years listening in terror for any noise at the door - mealtimes and Tenko must be fun!.

    "…Sometimes held for decades, they are not warned in advance of when they will be put to death, meaning they fear every day is their last…"

    Apparently at any minute of the day or night, without any warning, the door will be slammed open, a couple of burly guards will charge in, grab and frog march you to the scaffold and boof! You're done and dangling in a couple of minutes or so.

  4. Good for them, its what is needed here for scum like the gangsta's that think shooting & stabbing are ok! Mind you the usual suspects like these handwringers will be along to say its nasty :- "But rights groups like Amnesty International have called for it to be abolished, saying the condemned have few visits, little exercise and are forced to spend almost all of their time sitting down in their cells."
    Typical, no thought for the victims just bleeding heart b*****ks for the criminal scrotes!!

  7. I must admit I thought the Nips would have used the old Samurai sword to lop off the noggin, dissapointed to see it was the noose!! ;-(
  8. ...apparantly this is the way the Russians do it/did it as well.

    Only the prisoner was shot in the back of the head.. even less warning.

    Their line was it was actually more humane..

  10. ******* amateurs - Albert Pierrepoint could do it in about 10 seconds!;-)

    All joking aside, good drills by the Japs, though I'm a little disappointed they didn't go the traditional route and use a Katana...
  11. According to Syd Dernley who was an assistant hangman in the 50s Pierrepoint's record was 7 seconds when he hanged James Inglis at Strangeways.

  13. You want to wheelspin the ******* to death with an 80's motorcycle? Sounds alright, a combination of heat and abrasion with some carcinogenic exhaust fumes and shreiking 4-1 pipe for good measure.
  14. Good drills, Nippon!
