* Knee-capping was often used as a punishment by the IRA and other Northern Irish paramilitary groups. There were four versions of it: A) [[ThisIsADrill a drill]] B) putting a gun at the back of the knee and firing C)a sledgehammer, originating with Protestant terrorists and gleefully adopted by their Republican counterparts, and d) [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill cinder blocks]]. Many patients from the UK and Ireland will travel to have every day hip or knee replacement surgeries in Northern Ireland because the surgeons there... well, let's just say they've had plenty of practice.
