Have you ever thought about when they first started doing electrocutions?

As I am reading they set it up for people to come and watch if they liked. It was like a big chair on a pedestal and then many chairs in the audience like it was some kind of show or something? Would you want to go see someone get electrocuted? Why would anyone want to see this harm come to people?

I would rather not see it. But I know that the families of the victim normally want to see the one who hurt their loved one suffer. It's almost like it gives them a sense of peace.

Westinghouse was the inventor of Direct Current, Tesla was the inventor of Alternating current (which could be sent much further distances) Westinghouse actually went around promoting the electric chair which used Alternating Current as a way of discrediting the technology as unsafe.
