The Confession Hook

The Corrections Museum

Bangkok, Thailand

Prisoners who balked at voluntary confessions were given additional persuasion to talk with the help of the jaw hook. Bound and upright, the prisoner was forced to stand on his toes; a hook was placed under his chin. When his physical stamina faltered the hook would bite deeper and deeper into his jaw.
