When the officials get word of it, they took the chance to torture Fierro.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Literature/GoodOmens'' with [[MinionWithAnFInEvil Crowley]] and his houseplants. Crowley's heard talking to plants helps them grow, so he takes this to heart in his own fashion. When his houseplants fail to grow fast enough, he puts the "fear of Crowley" into them, by taking the failure plant away, but first taking it around the apartment, telling the other plants, "Say goodbye to your friend, he just couldn't cut it." Then he takes the plant away, and leaves a large, empty pot somewhere conspicuous in the apartment.
-->''Crowley's plants were the most luxurious, verdant, and beautiful in London. And also, the most terrified.''

* In the backstory of ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', young [[TheDreaded Tywin Lannister's]] absolute [[KillEmAll annihilation]] of House Reyne and House Tarbeck during their rebellion, even in the face of being offered a surrender, was partly an attempt to send a warning to any other subservient houses that had grown bold under his father's weak rule that any sign of disloyalty would not be tolerated. Decades later, this act has been immortalized into the song, "The Rains of Castamere", the mere singing of which by a messenger to any lord threatening to defy the now Lord Tywin [[OhCrap is enough to make them fall into line]].

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petrus_killings Petrus Killings]] in UsefulNotes/Indonesia back in the '80s. Long story short, local thugs and gang ringleaders would be hunted down, executed without trial, and their bodies left in sacks for the masses to find and scare the others. Whether this heavy handed method actually worked or not [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement is a discussion for another time and another place.]]
