Wordless Wednesday

We were at the Texas Prison Museum two weeks ago.  This is 'Ol Sparky.
He is no longer in use, thankfully.
The inmates called it "Riding the thunderbolt." 
Very thought-provoking.

Here in Florida, we have an Old Sparky also. It was the sole means of execution in Florida from 1924 until 2000, when the State of Florida, under pressure from the U.S. Supreme Court, signed lethal injection into law. Although no one has been executed in this manner since 1999, prisoners awaiting execution on Florida's death row may still be electrocuted at their request.
Little bit of our macabre history, to be sure.
