  1. Walling

    Walling is a method of torture that consists of stressing an individual by placing his heels against a wall and repeatedly having his body slammed into the wall by a torturer. The intent of walling is for the individual's shoulder blades to hit a flexible wall specifically constructed to create a loud noise as to scare the individual into believing excessive damage to his body was underway. Commented on in a memo written by Stephen G. Bradbury, a Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General during the Bush administration, Walling "involves what may be characterized as rough handling," not involving a threat of imminent death. However, regardless the lack of danger or physical harm, this act is widely regarded to be torture.
