Pierrepoint cleans a woman after she has been hanged to do this he removes all her clothes you see her fully nude


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


When I first saw the name and trailer, I knew that the theme of the film was anti death penalty. The film is not entirely about Albert pierrepoint’s biography. It reflects the cruelty and inhumanity of the death penalty system. I am not a very firm anti death penalty activist, because some people do deserve to die. But the film is really worth seeing because most of the events in the film are true. Recently, I heard that it was shown in North America, which may contribute to the local anti death penalty movement.

The ancestral profession of the British Albert pierrepoint family is hanging. He himself followed his father’s footsteps and became a hangman. He won the admiration of the officer for his fast and effective execution process, and was proud of creating a execution record of 7.5 seconds. Moreover, he was personally called by Marshal Montgomery to execute the death penalty of Nazi war criminals. Therefore, he was famous in the countryside and was applauded by everyone. However, the situation was unpredictable. The anti death penalty movement after the war was powerful, and creation made people. Pierre point walked into the gallows one day and suddenly found that it was his good friend who was going to be hanged. After the execution of the hanging under heavy psychological pressure, he finally collapsed at home and collapsed in front of his wife. Times are changing. After Pierre point resigned in 1956, the death penalty was no longer carried out in Britain since 1965. By 2003, the death penalty had been completely abolished in British law. The death penalty has disappeared as a historical term on the three British Islands.

Pierre point is not the last hangman, as the North American title of the film says. He was only the last chief hanger. After he resigned, some prisoners were still hanged. But his departure marked the end of a period of history. The era of the death penalty as a profession is over. No matter how people evaluate the death penalty, Britain has entered a more civilized era, and the British no longer recognize the rationality of the death penalty. Pierre point’s own experience also made him an opponent of the death penalty. Pierre point in the play is very professional. He can calmly face all kinds of reactions shown by the condemned prisoners, but he can’t start with his old friend tish. The executioner is also a human being, and he will mourn the death of his kind. As he said, “at least these people kill for jealousy, hatred or a whim. What am I doing? What can I say? I murdered them, hundreds, hundreds“

China has a long history of death penalty. It is not easy to persuade people to abolish the death penalty. Liu Bang’s three chapters also stipulate that murderers die. In our culture, death doesn’t seem to be a terrible thing. Thousands of people watched the execution, cheered and bought human blood steamed bread like Lao Shuan. Of course, the execution in medieval Europe was so beautiful, but hundreds of years ago, people realized that the death penalty was an unpleasant thing, and the death penalty began to move indoors. Modern Europe has basically abolished the death penalty. However, outside Europe, including developed countries such as the United States and Japan, the death penalty is still a very important means of punishment. This year, China’s Supreme Court said it would withdraw the right to review the death penalty, which seems to be a measure to reduce the death penalty. Of course, in a country with a very imperfect legal system, we can only say that reducing unjust, false and wrong cases is the primary problem at present. As for the abolition of the death penalty, this foreign thing is the tail of capitalism for the broad masses of the people. It was cut out of sight at the beginning. With a population of 1.3 billion and thousands of deaths a year, it is not unacceptable for most people. The promise not to impose the death penalty for economic crimes has also been opposed by many people.

I saw an article about the case of swindling 200000 yuan by pretending to be Premier Zhou’s signature when the founding of the people’s Republic of China. Most of our parents should be familiar with this case. According to the people who grew up after the reform and opening up, 200000 was not a small amount at that time. Why can we get a signature? The bank’s security mechanism is very questionable. Of course, the key is not here. The key is that the defendant is a college student in the period of the Republic of China. Today, he is very aggressive. He is bent on doing business, running industry, getting promoted and getting rich. He has tried to obtain wealth and status in many ways, but society has changed and individuals have lost the right to get rich through personal struggle. And after he cheated the 200000 yuan, did he spend it? No, he cut the bills into pieces and burned them for days and nights. If today, he can take the money out to avoid the wind. When he asked for the money, he also took care to let the bank prepare old tickets, not serial numbers. Unfortunately, the experience in the market economy can no longer be applied in the era of planned economy. Individuals are bound in their own units and communities and can’t go one step further. He and his mother were so frightened that they waited to die until they were arrested. Today, such a case will certainly not be sentenced to death. The defendant’s lawyers can find out many reasons, including inadequate bank security measures, the defendant’s failure to obtain tangible benefits, or the defendant’s abnormal mental state. If coupled with the offensive of media publicity, it will come out in ten or eight years at most. Maybe they can publish books, go on TV and make another profit. But he was sentenced to death at that time. Is this kind of death penalty useful? I think there is, but it is not big. It has neither recovered 200000 yuan cheated nor strengthened the bank’s security measures. It is at most a deterrent to the ignorant people and let them realize that “those who steal the hook are thieves and those who steal the country are Hou.” only. This is the kind of death penalty I oppose. People should not be sentenced to death for acts other than murder.

If the prisoner killed someone, the evidence is conclusive and all kinds of judicial procedures are complete, it can be said that the defendant must have done the case in fact, so what? There are many judicial examples of this, and I’m afraid the most are those desperate housewives. Note that I’m not introducing American dramas. These housewives suffered from domestic violence on weekdays, and because of women’s weak position and nowhere to seek justice, they finally killed their husbands in anger and were put on the dock of murder. It is said that in western judicial practice, one can prove a special mental state through psychological identification and be pardoned by a judge or jury. In China, because most of the cases are in rural areas, psychological identification is certainly hopeless, but there are also many people sentenced to death with a reprieve or indefinite period. In addition, there is a term in American law called “kill in the heat”, that is, passion killing. Americans believe that people have no self-control when they are out of control. If you can prove that you are out of control when you kill, you can escape the law. China has no such concept at all. I am also opposed to these two kinds of death sentences, because the defendants are actually the victims, or just on a whim. Their death has no logical deterrent at all, but can only reflect the judicial indifference to human nature.

Of course, the choice of the death penalty is ultimately determined by politics. The labor government abolished the death penalty in Britain in the 1960s in order to show that it attaches importance to human rights and win the support of voters. Today’s labor government will not care more about Saddam’s death sentence, because it is not in line with political interests. It seems that the same is true in China. It is political common sense that the death penalty should not be abolished when the majority of the people do not agree with the abolition of the death penalty. The immediate goal can only be more justice in justice. However, no one does not want to see that there are fewer and fewer death penalty prisoners and criminal cases in China, and the final death penalty will naturally die.
