Colombian Necktie
During the 10 years long civil war in Colombia, also known as La Violencia, there was a method of execution so terrifying it instilled fear into the hearts of all. This method was the infamous Colombian Necktie. The executioner would first make an incision under the convict’s chin using a blunt knife and then pull out his tongue, leaving him to choke to death. The Colombian necktie is often associated with Pablo Escobar – he’s considered to be its creator, but that couldn’t possibly be true because he wasn’t even born when the civil war started.
