The cane leaves the marks all over prisoner’s body and rips his skin. Canning is done privately in prisons which means that nobody is allowed to watch this torture. Sometimes another police officer holds prisoner’s head so that he can remind him to keep breathing. After canning is done, prisoners are given medical care and cleansing of the wounds. This kind of punishing often leads to death of the prisoner, but it isn’t considered for a death sentence.
