"Cruel and unusual punishment" finds its way into the American lexicon from the United States Constitution, in which, in Amendment VIII, it declares, "[e]xcessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted." The United States Constitution is mentioned in the Star Trek: The Original Series episodes "The Omega Glory" and "Court Martial". ProfessorTrek 19:59, July 16, 2011 (UTC)
