Ancient waterboarding: It is to tie up the criminal so that his head cannot move, and then let the water droplets continue to hit his head.
There were many criminal laws in ancient China, and different criminal laws were implemented according to different types of criminals. One of them is known as the drip punishment. What is it? Now let’s get to know.
The first was to tie the prisoner up so that he could not move his head, which was the main part of the torture.
Then, let the water droplets keep smashing to the top of the head, dripping from high up to the top of the head downward. At first, the prisoner does not feel anything, but when dozens of days later, the head will gradually fester, the water droplets began to penetrate the top of the head role to the person’s head, and then the prisoner will die of pain.
It is said that ancient women would rather commit suicide than suffer this punishment, and they knew how cruel this criminal law was. This kind of criminal law still comes from the Shang Zhou Dynasty, and it is also the most endless era of ancient criminal law, because Zhou Wang was a very grumpy emperor, who often tortured people around him because of something unpleasant.
The reason why the water keeps dripping on the forehead is that the inmate is unable to open his eyes and forcing the inmate to close his eyes will bring a great sense of psychological fear. Continuous dripping is very irritable, but this restlessness continues to increase because the inmate is unable to move.
The cold water used in the dripping torture further aggravated the discomfort while the continuous dripping of ice water on the forehead caused headache and blurred consciousness, etc. , it can be seen that drip torture is likely to lead to psychological collapse and severe physical discomfort.
