Hilliary Clinton/Tim Kaine 2016
Gary Gilmore was executed by firing squad as per his request. But because Mormons believe in "blood atonement" and firing squads shed blood, it became controversial on religious grounds and the method was stopped because it might look like the LDS were just practicing their religion.
But yes, only two people in a firing squad have real bullets in their rifles and the rest are blanks. The second is in case one misses. But the idea is that no one in the firing squad knows which one shot the fatal blow and so no one can take credit for killing a man and the doubt helps to alleviate any moral conscience of they might have....even though they all volunteered to execute someone.

Semper Fidelis, Semper Liber.
Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
"One woman was beaten by her ex-husband repeatedly. He was in prison for a short time but released years earlier than she'd planned. "He strangled me and stomped on my face and punched me in the face in front of our three kids who were completely helpless to the situation, a year and 9 months later he's getting out," Heather Duhachek said.
Timothy Moody was facing 14 years behind bars for beating Duhachek. "When I knew I was in trouble was when I looked up and saw the bottom of his shoe above my face and I just thought to myself, oh my god, he's going to stomp on my face."
Moody was sentenced to only 6 years, but was released early in July under the good time law. More than 4 years sooner than she expected. "It was just the gray bottom of a tennis shoe above my eye and I just shut my eye as tight as I could and I turned my head to the side and I could see my daughter, my five year old standing there and as she's standing there and her dad is stomping on my face she's just got tears rolling down her face."
Duhachek says the attack affected her children severely. "Mommy was on the ground and daddy was on top of her, he was holding her really, very bad. I heard her crying, he wouldn't stop," her daughter said."
(rather than pst the photo of the aftermath, I'll just post the link. I image is rather...barbaric...)

Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
