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.]]

** Even Conservative commentators have remarked that her treatment of the miners and their union, after the long bitter Strike ended, was needlessly vindictive, and provoked deep bitter and lasting resentment, which adds to the undeniable fact that vast swathes of [[OopNorth the North]], Wales and Scotland are no-go areas for the Conservative Party. Her management of the Strike itself suggests an exceptional degree of ruthlessness and state force was condoned to beat the miners into submission.

* In ''Fanfic/CodeGeassLelouchOfBritannia'', though he doesn't kill them, Charles has the two princes who sold out Lelouch to the EU stripped of their nobility (allegedly for their incompetence) which he then grants to Lelouch. It's noted in-story as being a reminder that the fate and fortune of every noble, even the princes and princesses, lay in the emperor's hands.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': During the final arc that sees the Federation invade the Dominion stronhold on Cardassia, the Cardassian resistance (led by Kira and Damar) is becoming an irritating bother for the occupiers when Weyoun suggests to the Founder the idea of leveling a city of a million people to show the Cardassians what happens to anyone who betrays the Dominion.
