    Sandbags. Wasn't completely off.

    "He was then taken to an abandoned cannery behind the prison, which served as its death house. He was strapped to a chair, with a wall of sandbags placed behind him to trap the bullets. Five gunmen, local police officers, stood concealed behind a curtain with five small holes, through which they aimed their rifles. When asked for any last words, Gilmore simply replied, "Let's do it!"[5] The Rev. Thomas Meersman, the Roman Catholic prison chaplain, administered the last rites to Gilmore. After the prison physician cloaked him in a black hood, Gilmore uttered his last words to Father Meersman: "Dominus vobiscum" (Latin, translation: "The Lord be with you.") Meersman replied, "Et cum spiritu tuo" ("And with your spirit")[6]"

    It's the White House circa 1950, completely gutted while being renovated for the first time in ~150 years. Apparently they considered tearing it down and building anew as it would have been a bit less expensive, but Truman lobbied for restoration given the rich history.

    Thomas and Olive Hamilton were also instrumental in expanding the Klan’s influence in Augusta. Early in October, for example, during a Billy Graham revival in Augusta, the Klan’s Grand Dragon, Dr. Samuel Green chartered a women’s Ku Klux Klan in Augusta. Though the Grand Dragon refused to reveal their actual numbers, he said that “the Augusta women had the minimum requirement of 100 more than three months ago.” The Grand Dragon also told the press that the number of klansmen in the Augusta Klavern “spurted forward 500 in membership in the past three months and is continuing that rapid growth.”

    Less than a week after the Graham crusade ended, moreover, Hamitlon’s church, the Woodlawn Baptist Church, started its own revival. Not surprisingly, the Klan’s Grand Dragon, Dr. Samuel Green, appeared in Augusta on the second night of Woodlawn’s revival. This time he initiated 164 new Klansmen in ceremonies witnessed by some 1,000 members of the Augusta Klavern. The Klan was growing by “leaps and bounds,” Green explained, and Augusta had “a strong outfit” with “some of the best people in the community” as members. “The people in Georgia,” he stated, “are becoming more and more cognizant that they must fight for states’ rights, and they are beginning to do something about it.”

    Woodlawn’s revival was in its final days on November 2 when the States’ Rights Democratic Party, with South Carolina Governor Strom Thurmond at its head, won only 4 states in the presidential elections: Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and South Carolina. Indeed, the party quickly dissolved in the aftermath of President Harry Truman’s upset victory in 1948.

    Hamilton and his family continued their efforts, however, to improve the Klan's image in Augusta. He and Olive led the local klavern in distributing food and money "toward brightening Christmas for Augusta's needy." The Augusta Chronicle briefly described the Klan campaign in an article accompanied by a photograph showing Hamilton and other Klan leaders sorting canned goods as his daughter Sally watches. Though the Klan "spokesman" interviewed for the story was never identified by name, there can be little doubt it was Hamilton.

    I think I saw something on how Utah does it on NatGeo a few years back.

    they put the criminal in a room and harness him into something, I can't remember if he's sitting or standing. There were like 5 openings or windows in the wall where the shooters looked through with their rifles, not even 20 yards from where the prisoner is strapped in. Then each of the shooters is given a bullet, one of the shooters is given a blank, but nobody knows who gets the blank. Then they all take aim at the same spot on the prisoner's chest and boom.

    This was a while back, so I may be off on some of that. I just remember the show talking about having 1 blank to preserve some doubt in the shooters' mind as to whether or not they killed the inmate. Pretty wild to think about. I think I'd rather them just tell me that I got a live round and put one in the guy than have that to think about the rest of my life. Just weird.

    The rationale is that, back in the good ol' days, people weren't always okay with just murdering a guy, even for the state, even if it was "a bad guy." The blank was to give everyone in the group a bit of doubt regarding take a life

    Truman was a Mason.

    [​IMG]

    When the White House reno was underway, a large number of stones turned up that bore the master's mark of the various (operative, not speculative) masons who had carved them. Truman had 48 of them set aside, and sent to the Grand Lodge of each state along with a letter of authentication, that they had come from the White House's original masons, and the letters were framed in wood taken from the floor of the old Oval Office.

    Here's a snippet from Life Magazine detailing a scandal involving Lyndon Johnson's protege, Bobby Baker, who ran a whorehouse in DC called the Quorum Club. The best prostitute there was Elly Rometsch, an East German seductress who was "down for anything, including other girls." JFK visited her numerous times and remarked that she was "the best he ever had."

    Rometsch would later be revealed to be a KGB agent. It appears JFK fell for the classic honey pot

    re: Detroit pictures from a few pages back.

    My entire mother's family lives outside Detroit so I have been going there my entire life. Last year, my uncle gave me a tour of the city. It was amazing how many buildings looked exactly like the ones listed. Pontiac, Chrysler, etc. You name it and you will see an old factory with their names on it. Since it costs so much to bulldoze them, the city just leaves them. Hell, you can see skyscrapers even in the "nice" part of downtown that literally have for sale signs on them. It truly is sad.

    We drove through a poverty stricken area and there was a house on fire. Right in front of us, a home was just burning and there wasn't even a emergency vehicle in sight. It is such a depressing place. I have a lot of pictures on my old cell phone that I will try to put on here later. It is scary to imagine how many homeless people are living inside of some of the abandoned factories. Hell, they are so big, it wouldn't surprise me if there were whole communities in some of them.

    "Fascism offers that leadership through which the will of the people can be effective. Thus a dictatorship of the people themselves replaces the present dictatorship of vested interests. Parliament and government are paralyzed by universal talk. Programs for which the people have voted are never implemented. As a result real government under democracy rests in the hands of the great interests, such as international finance. Fascism restores to power the people. That power can only be expressed through leadership voluntarily accepted and chosen, but armed by the people with power to do what they want done."

  20. Tony Ray Bans

    Tony Ray Bans Most Overlooked. Most Overbooked.

    The reason Utah had the firing squad for a long time is because of the Mormon Doctrine of Blood Atonement. If you are a mormon, commit a crime, and allow another mormon to execute you, you are forgiven. Hence, allow a prisoner to choose his method of execution. That is where the idea for the law came from.

    I don't think so.

    It was legal in Utah in the early/mid 1800's but never used.

    Iirc we(the US and its leaders) were pretty put off by the French's lust for it and it was viewed as a little too barbaric for our tastes.
