Now this is a bad way to go: Woman Kills Man By Squeezing His Testicles
Woman Kills Man By Squeezing His Testicles
The man on the graphic photo below is a 42-year-old shop owner in the Meilan District of Haikou City, in Hainan, that big island south of mainland China. He is dead. A 41-year-old woman killed him. By squeezing his testicles.
Update: Yes, you can die from extreme testicular pain. Here's the scientific explanation, by urologist and San Diego Sexual Medicine's director Dr. Irwin Goldstein.
According to witnesses talking to China News 24, the woman was riding a scooter and tried to park it in front of the man's shop. She was going to pick up her son, who attends the elementary school in that neighborhood.
The man went out of the shop and told her that she couldn't park her scooter there. She protested and a the shouting match started. After a while they started to fight physically. The woman called her husband and brother, who came to the scene. But things got a lot worse than just a few smacks here and there: the woman grabbed the man's testicles and squeezed them so hard and long that the man shutdown. He collapsed on the ground out of the pain and, worse, he was dead. Yes, people. dead by ballsqueeze.

3. I was in a pool of jurists where the accused was charged with assault by squeeze.
I was in the pool of jurors that week, and while I was not selected for this jury, I got to witness the jury selection process.
The accused, a woman of about 30, was charged with assault and battery, specifically squeezing her (now ex-) boyfriend's testicles.
As part of the voir dire process, the attorneys focused on two specific issues for accepting/rejecting potential jurists.
The first was basically, do you believe a woman can assualt a man? This was mid-1980's. A couple female jurists were excused because they simply didn't feel that could happen. One woman stated she was an abuse victim and she was pretty sure no woman could ever physically assault a man. This was a serious discussion conducted with the decorum one would expect of a courtroom
The second issue, was basically, can you fairly and impartially judge on what is a rather sensitive subject? Or would you be too embarrassed to do so? This discussion resulted in cycles of decorum mixed with howls of laughter from (almost) everyone present.
At one point a potential jurist, female, around 80, broke up when she was being questioned on it, and the infectious laughter took over the courtroom. The gallery was roaring, the prosecutors were giggling, the judge turned his back and bent over. Only the defendant was immune. She slumped over the defense table, her humiliation obvious.
When decorum was eventually restored, the attorney repeated his question as to whether the potential jurist could rule fairly or thought this was too sensitive a matter.
"No, I can be fair", she replied, "It's just so darn funny." It was a long time before the laughter subsided.
My favorite courtroom scene ever.

7. Reminds me of a passage from Bishop Tutu's book
Desmond Tutu was on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission after the apartheid system collapsed in South Africa ("No Future Without Forgiveness" was the book title). As part of the rehabilitation of South African society, anyone who voluntarily appeared before the Commission was absolved of any criminal penalties for testifying about their actions under the apartheid regime.
One man who testified had been a policeman and a guard in one of the more notorious prisons. He related his participation in the torture and murder of a black activist the police had apprehended. He and his pals had beaten the man unconscious when he throttled the man's testicles, which swelled up to the size of grapefruits. He testified that he then punched the swollen glands, and the man died, his skin turning from black to a sickly gray as the guard punched his testicles.
Oddly enough, I didn't feel like laughing after reading Tutu's account. But to each his own, I guess.

8. Torture is horrible
And there is no excuse for it. Did Desmond Tutu say in his book why the activist was tortured? Or was the guard just into torturing people? That's a rhetorical question, so no need to answer.
