Restraints

The Corrections Museum

Bangkok, Thailand

Sometimes the prisoner only had to be held still; the main theme was not to make him scream with agony ... rather it was to keep him in one place. Of course, many times a byproduct of the restraining device was discomfort.

The picture with Golf in it illustrates how a couple of bamboo poles could easily be employed to keep the man from making a dash out the door or though a window. It also made dining a real chore ... not just for him but for his table mates as well.
