Public: Punishment: Death
Hang Glider   (+5, -1)  [vote for, against]
Although I do not support capital punishment, I am for giving convicted criminals a fighting chance and an opportunity at freedom.

"For the charges of heresy against the supreme rule of the state under God, as a representative of God on Earth, The Crown hereby sentences you to death by hang gliding.

"As this is a new procedure of the courts, recently baked, I will briefly describe the nature of your fate: You will be taken to the highest elevated point in our great nation and given the command of a glider. You will be harnessed to the glider by a single rope. Of which, one end will be affixed to the glider, the other firmly tied around your neck.

"You will then be instructed to take hold of the glider with your two hands, which I imagine will be quite cold due to the altitude, and with it in your grasp, take a running leap off the side of this nation's highest reachable point."

"Bailiff, remove the prisoner."

"Dead man walking!"
