Eugen Weidmann Haiku

War comes to us soon –

Let’s get one last beheading

Out of our system

France’s last public execution by guillotine took place 79 years ago today. The spectators were apparently so rowdy that President Lebrun went ahead and banned all future public executions. And who was among those spectators? A young Christopher Lee. (You know. Saruman. Dracula. Count Dooku. And actual real life WWII spy.)

Weidmann himself was a garden-variety murdering piece of shit who killed six people for their money. (He had previously served time in prison for robbery.) He shot at the unarmed cops who came to arrest him; they wrestled him into submission anyway. Once in custody, he confessed almost immediately. So that was that.
