(1) Human beings are always thinking of ways to punish
other human beings.
(2) Many years ago, the governments in Europe and the
United States used "stocks."
(a) It was like a big piece of wood with holes. The "bad"
person would have to stand or sit behind the wooden board with his/her
arms or feet sticking out of the holes. The passing "good"
people would laugh at him/her. Sometimes the "good" people
would throw dead cats or dogs at the "bad" person -- an action that
sometimes would kill the person in the stocks.
