The Shin-Vice













The Shin-Vice

"There is a frequent phrase used by judges, that the accused has confessed without torture and thus in undeniably guilty. I wondered at this and made inquiry and learned that in reality they were tortured, but only in an iron press with sharp-edged channels over the shins, in which they are pressed like a cake, bringing blood and causing intolerable pain, and this is technically called without torture, deceiving those who do not understand the phrases of the inquisitors"
