Capital Punishment reintroduced in The Isle Of Man!

1 post in this topic

The first instance took place on Monday.

At 12 noon, the prisoner, the priest and the hangman made their way slowly across Douglas prison court yard to the execution apparatus at the yard's far end.

It was a microclimate of wind, hail and rain which can sometimes happen on the island.

The hangman is irritable, wants to be seen to get it right, in addition he's had the proverbial 'skinful' the night before.

The prisoner is understably distressed and continues to protest his innocence, much to the hangman's annoyance.

He asks the prisoner to be quiet and reminded him that 'it's alright for you, the priest and myself have to walk back in this weather!'
