Medieval Crime Punishment Was A Horror All Its Own

medieval crime punishment was truly a horror all its own. I have heard terrible stories about the way we execute people today in out time but none of these stories, and let me tell you some are really, really bad, compare to the terror that was inflicted on people in the medieval crime punishment times.

Way back in medieval crime punishment times those who committed crimes, any crimes were dealt with swiftly and cruelly. These people were not held in jail for any length of time, just as long as it took to set up their execution. In medieval crime punishment times that was the only use for jails. No one was incarcerated they were all put to death in medieval crime punishment times.

What they did to people back in the medieval crime punishment era was practically unspeakable. They used to kill anybody and everybody back then and their ways of doing it were horrific. If you were a thief they used to press you to death. This was one of the more common way of killing prisoners back in medieval crime punishment times.

The way that they did this was to lay the prisoner down on top of a sharp rock. This stone was in the center of the back and in medieval crime punishment times once they had done this part they would bring in extremely heavy stones or blocks. These blocks were then placed on the chest of the prisoner in order to press them until they dies either by not being able to breathe of by the sharp stone piercing through their chest from behind. These were the types of tortuous ways that prisoners were killed back in the medieval crime punishment times.

Another common method of death in medieval crime punishment times was to hang criminals up in the courtyards und simply leave them there. This is where these people would hang until their bones were picked clean by birds and other live creatures. In medieval crime punishment times the bodies would hang there for some time in order to deter others from committing the same types of offences. This was rather effective back in medieval crime punishment times. I don't know about you but that would certainly work for me if I lived in medieval crime punishment times.
