TRUTH !!
dr. Joseph-Ignacio Guillotin was upset by the unfair treatment of prisoners
who were put to death. aristocratic criminals were allowed a quick and
painless death, whereas commoners were subjected to public, slow and
torturous forms of execution. as a step toward eliminating the death
penalty completely, guillotin pushed for a more humane method to be used for
all classes.
he himself eventually was put under the blade of the product of his efforts.
