  1. No, I don’t think anyone has technically been executed by the actual government under these laws.

    Often what happens is that people breaking these laws are murdered by raving mobs before they would have a chance to be executed by the government. This way the government keeps it’s hands technically clean and they have some plausible deniability.

    But the troublemaker is still dead, and the mob is never really fully prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
