When I lived in Austin there was an execution style killing at the TCBY down the street from my apartment. Some sadistic asshole decided to kill the five or so teenage girls who were working there after blindfolding them and tying their hands. That image has always haunted me. It was a week night and early in the evening. Shit. I could've walked in on it.

If I remember correctly (it has been about ten years) there was no money stolen from the cash register.

This is what I think of when I think of execution - to answer the question that started this node.
