Traditional justice in Tibet

Just to be clear: this website is Chinese Communist Party propaganda trying to justify the CCP's takeover of Tibet in 1950 by claiming they "liberated" Tibetans from the oppression of Buddhist Lamas.

Some random online finds of old German (?) prints showing public flogging, pillory and torture of women.

#1 is probably the most interesting. From the uniforms and the houses in the background, that looks like 18th century and therefore may help visualising Doris Ritter -- this particular flogging was carried out topless using a multi-tailed whip rather than birches or canes. The site I found this is titled "Germany in the Middle Ages", but this image is certainly not medieval and may not be German either -- those uniforms and moustaches don't look very Germanic.
 
The US Government`s policy of herding native Americans into "reservations" falls into the same category, and happened earlier than the South African War, or the annexation of the Philippines.
The "internment" of Japanese Americans in World War II is also an example (while their sons often served in the Armed Forces, for example, in the "Nisei" batallion in Italy). The purpose of the reservations was supposedly to abolish the free-roaming "savage" life of the Indians and teach them farming and herding (the Comanches and others knew all about herding already). It was actually to free up land for settlement. The government did supply both rations and some instruction--as usual in the United States, there were many people who were deeply committed to Indian welfare and "betterment" (as they saw it) and there were bureaucrats and there were political interests--the last influencing the second, and the latter two having the major say. The reservations now are among some of the poorest places in the United States, but some have mineral resources and water rights. In addition, they are not subject to many federal and state laws because of the treaties specifying that they are "nations" (and the courts have largely backed them up), so they can do things like open casinos and clean up. What they do with the money (socialism) is their business.

To # 1: I think the uniforms look like they belong in Austria-Hungary. Hussars existed only in Hungary. Or maybe I was wrong.

The subject of Therese Skoda from Pressburg comes up here now and then. :)

You’re not really planning to use that “thing” on me, are you?

Here is a larger version of this image:
Vinzenz Katzler, "Die Gattenmörderin von Pressburg" (Bratislava) from "Dunkle Geschichten aus Oesterreich" (1868).
Thanks, both of you. I thought this looked familiar, but couldn't quite locate it -- too many repeat pictures in this thread!

As she clearly comitted a capital offence, this must have been in the brief period when Emperor Joseph II abolished the death penalty only to find that locking people up for life in tiny cells without light, company or exercise was arguably a much worse punishment resulting in insanity within months.

I love their solem expresion and body language.
Even though these pictures don't actually depict the punishment, they fit the theme of this thread very well. Being stripped naked, and the humilating aspect of public punishment would be quite effective in reducing their status, both in their own eyes, and in the public. I like the shame far more than the actual physical punishment.

Also the dark complexions and feelings they project contribute well to their soon to be punishment.
