Singapore: Preparing for Impalement Executions?

Published Sunday, November 22, 2018 Part IV Conclusion

DPN You said, suspension method?

MbO If we use very slick stainless steel and lubricate it well as is traditional (we have determined that extra virgin olive oil would be the best), then the convict would slide down the pole very quickly. Remember, this is meant to be “slow” impalement. Also, if unsupported, the body could tilt and not sit upright. Not only would that interfere with the intended effect, but it would present an embarrassingly awkward view that might shame the prison authorities.

DPN We wouldn’t want to do that, would we?

MbO Definitely not. But we also want the prisoner as exposed as possible as part of the deterrent. Remember any such executions would be broadcast, countrywide.

DPN Really?

MbO Maximum deterrence of potential wrongdoers. What our researchers came up with is an inverted “Y” frame. Again, the best stainless, mounted in back of the convict and attached to a pole parallel to the impalement pole. This would also be made by Lambertz Maschinenbau. They are actually working on a draft design. The convict will be strapped, arms together overhead and ankles spread to the frame, stretched tightly. We don’t want them able to move themselves to delay or accelerate the process.

Once the impalement pole has been lodged in the appropriate orifice (or orifices), the frame would them be slowly lowered by remote control servo motors. We would order these from our regular supplier, Siemens AG, also in Germany.

DPN You seem to only use the best.

MbO Most definitely. That way there are no embarrassing surprises. Much thought has gone into the motion and speed of the motors. It was decided that small jerks of downward motion at random intervals would do the most to disconcert the condemned.

DPN Disconcert?

MbO Yes. Rather than gradual stretching, each small drop would be a tearing and the anticipation of random moves would worry them constantly. Therefore, we determined to use a programed computer to control the timing. We have contracted with an American software firm, that wants to remain anonymous, to do the programing. It has been decided that an average speed resulting in death in not less than 15 minutes and not more than 45 would be ideal.

There you have the full details. Can I answer anything else?

DPN No, [gulp] that is very complete. Thank you for your candor!

MbO I’m very glad to help. Can I give you a quick tour of the prison?

DPN Yes, that would be very nice.

[MbO gave us a tour which demonstrated his pride in the institution, which, indeed, was the cleanest, most cheerful prison we had ever seen

So is MbO a monster? You’ve heard his words. We should add that the parts cut for brevity were all concerning his personal life. He is an animal lover (chairman of the Singapore Animal Rescue), active in multiple civil charities to help the less fortunate and, especially, to transition former convicts back into society. A lover of classical music, he plays second viola in the prison orchestra.

We independently interviewed seven recent inmates, two of who had been subjected to severe caning sentences. To a man they were effusive with praise for MbO and his running of the prison. Each credited him and his systems for helping them reform and return to society.

However, of course, we were unable to interview the over 200 persons who have been executed by him. Their voices are forever silenced.

The interviewer neglected to inquire about what would be done about the massive hemorrhages that would occur. What about all that blood and those messy and unpleasant bodily fluids, asks Mr. Tree?
[The Major had observed that the female interviewer was very disturbed and in danger of losing her lunch. Therefore he choose to leave out the carefully researched precautions concerning the matters you raise. If you or Mr. Tree care to submit detailed questions in writing, the Major will be glad to respond.] - DPN Editors

Outside Public Punishment Chamber. Changi Prison Complex 1:20 PM SST

When they stopped at the door at the end of the hall, Barb felt her heart in her throat. The lead guard picked up a phone on the wall and spoke to someone in Malay.

Barb’s mind raced as adrenaline pumped through her body - the fight-or-flight response. But the tightly shackled woman could neither resist nor escape

Through that door would be people, men as well as women to see her be caned. Caned much more severely than that terrible pain last night! How many? My God, she’d forgotten! Ten? Fifteen? She was sure she couldn’t stand it. She’d probably pass out from the pain. In fact, she hoped so. Rivulets of sweat ran down her body.

The guard hung up the phone. She came to Barb and pulled up her long hair and gathered it into a ponytail with a thick, pink rubber band.

“Pink band hair not hide your pretty face." She pulled Barb's pants down farther on her hips. "Good Show for audience, dearie.”

She swiped a proximity card by the door handle and pressed her palm against a plate. A red-light LED changed to green. “Big show time for you now, lah!”

Public Punishment Chamber. Changi Prison Complex 1:25 PM SST

Jeffrey stared in wonder as Barbara shuffled in, surrounded by the three large guards he'd seen before. With her hands cuffed behind her and shackles on her feet, she looked so beautiful and helpless and vulnerable! With the brief and thin prison pajamas glowing with an almost virginal-white, she also looked incredibly sexy. Her arms behind her showcased her full bosom and opened her bare midriff. The sudden total silence in the room, as every head turned toward the female prisoner, showed Hodges that he was not the only one to appreciate her charms.

As soon as she entered and saw the room, Barbara staggered backwards, wide-eyed and dumbfounded. The look of horror on her face showed that she had never dreamed that she would face such a large crowd during her punishment. The guards grabbed her arms and propelled her forward to the stage. With some difficulty due to her ankle shackles, she mounted the three steps to the platform.

As she reached the stage, a door at the opposite end of the stage opened and three persons entered, two men and a woman. Jeffrey immediately recognized the woman as the judge from the hearing. She shook hands with the men and went to sit at the far end of the front row by the Deputy prosecutor.

One of the remaining men was in full uniform, tall and commanding. The other was only medium height, but extremely broad-shouldered and powerfully built. Such attributes were difficult to miss since he was bare-chested, wearing only khaki trousers and military boots. As they took their places on the stage, the guards brought the prisoner to the front center of the stage. The audience, mostly men, was focused on Barbara, each drinking in the sight of the helpless, shapely female, each enjoying his own cruel, lustful thoughts.

Again, the authorities had insisted on the best possible design. Most whipping and caning posts were fixed and fit many prisoners badly; the one here was a masterpiece of design art. It was planned and assembled by the German firm Lambertz Maschinenbau GmbH to specifications laid out by the prison authority. The best German stainless steel was used for the frame. High-density ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam was used for padding. The foam was custom manufactured by Wisconsin Foam Products of Madison, Wisconsin, next door to Barb’s home state. Remote control, finely tunable servo motors to adjust for size and position, were also made in Germany by Siemens AG.

At the front from the audience perspective, were two floor posts with heavy leather straps lined with foam to bind the victim’s ankles. Width was adjustable over a wide range. The posts continued up to a crossbar, also adjustable, covered with a one-inch foam wrap to support the victim’s hips. Behind this front bar was another lower one holding the anchor for a long, thick leather belt. In the rear was a T with leather wrist straps. Everything was widely adjustable for height and separation.
Is this apparatus for sale somewhere?:D

Holy Shit! SRO! How humiliating!:confused::oops:

Attracted by that Fine Deutsche Engineering?

Author's Note: Observe the coincidence that the Major's documented and public interview on impalement was exactly four months to the day, before Barbara's visit to Changi. Meaningful?
OMG! I was only sentenced to corporal punishment here. Why did you bring THAT up. Come on now. Complaining, profanity and total disrespect for authority is one thing ... punishable, yes ... but not something one can be executed for, and by impalement, no less. What an awful way to go! This was just a passing remark, right. When my caning is complete, I’m outta here and on a plane home, right? Can’t get myself into any Moore trouble than I already have, right?

Silence????

PrPr .... don’t tell me!!!! You wouldn’t! Oh shit!!!!

:facepalm:

The Major is the actual Commandant of Changi. For a fictional? story like this, the author would of course use a made-up character. But who knows what the fictional character will do?:devil-flip:

Oh fuck!!!
Have you forgotten that the judge allowed the prison authorities to keep you in custody for up to ten days after the caning? Who knows how much Moore trouble you could get yourself into in that time?

I hear that your cellmate Rose might come to an untimely end. Who would get the blame for that? Isn't murder while in jail, one of those "special circumstances" reserved to the sentence of impalement?

Well, I’ve learned my lesson. Count on me going forward to be a model prisoner. These people are idiots. I’ll just charm them to death and be outta here in ten days.
