Necklacing is an enslavement, torture and slaughter method used in African nations and elsewhere around the world against an individual to terrorize the group into submission. The process involves restraining an individual by placing a car tire around their chest and arms, filling the tire with gasoline and lighting it with a match. The perpetrators and bystanders watch the victim dance until death or until rescue. The victim may take up to 20 minutes to die, suffering severe burns in the process.

May all beings be free of hatred.

May all beings be free of pain.

May all beings be free of suffering.
