Explicit pictures of Garrote used on Filipinos found online
All Filipinos learn about the GOMBURZA in History class, so everyone knows about how the three priests (Mariano Gómez, José Apolonio Burgos, and Jacinto Zamora) were executed by garrote. Here are pictures of the strangulation device used on other Filipinos, from before and during the American occupation of the Philippines.
Just a warning: Take note that some of the images below depict people being put to death.
Here’s a picture of capital punishment carried out on a criminal, dated 1901 from the US Library of Congress. The location of the execution? New Bilibid Prison. Update: we’ve moved the picture to this gallery.
Another picture of an apparent execution, carried out with an American sentry nearby.
On a related note, here are two pictures from the same era of Philippine history. The first shows Filipinos surrendering to the Americans, and an artillery piece from the period.
