The death penalty is killing a person as punishment for a crime My research question is To what extent has the death penalty in France changed since it was first established Some questions that I hope to be able to answer by the end of my research are When was the death penalty abolished in France When did they first start the death penalty in France Do they still practice the death penalty anywhere in France and What crimes were associated with the death penalty Some people think the death penalty is a good punishment because of their religious beliefs but others think that it is just plain cruel I know that when there were public executions the people were entertained by the executions for some reason I dont know for sure but I think the death penalty was abolished in the late 1900s in France yet it is still used in other countries around the world For their executions the French used something called a guillotine a machine with a heavy blade sliding vertically in grooves which was used to behead people Although France used the guillotine other countries around the world had their own ways of executing people Part 2The first use of the guillotine took place on April 25 1792 when Nicolas Jacques Pelletier was beheaded at Place de Grve on the Right Bank His execution took place at 330 in the afternoon Having been the first time to use the guillotine some people were unhappy with it Some thought that it was too swift and clinically effective Abbott Using the guillotine left the crowd unsatisfied because the executions were no longer entertaining They did not just want to see heads getting chopped off they wanted the torture that was shown before the guillotine was used Therefore they wanted to go back to their old methods Some of the methods used before the guillotine were hanging breaking at the wheel decapitation
