Not the best shot, but a moving subject I thought so I took the best capture I could of this graffiti on a house near where I live. There was also graffiti on the fence but that was painted over the other day. I can only assume the mention of electrocution is in reference to E.C.T. (Electro Convulsive Therapy) which (as some of you probably know, but I'll outline it for those who don't) is a contentious therapy used in certain psychiatric conditions in which seizures are electrically induced in anesthetized patients.
During my nursing education in one of my Psych placements I was witness to this procedure being performed on a number of patients. As mentioned before, the patients are always sedated during the procedure, the patient is not conscious (as Jack Nicholson's character was in 'One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest')
I actually know of a friend of the family who suffered from extreme depression. No therapy, drugs or other interventions helped him until he finally agreed to try E.C.T. and it had a profound positive effect on his condition, he was like a new man afterwards and remains so to this day...
