This neo-Nazi guy who shot up the Holocaust Museum the other day. He's now saying he knows of other shootings planned to take place. Sounds like terrorism to me. Shouldn't we waterboard him to obtain the information of when, where and who?

If we can't break him with rubber hose beating then that would be a solid option.

I couldn't care less what you do to him. He's trash, much like what was water boarded at Gitmo.

I don't understand why you would think we'd have a problem with it, and I don't understand why you would have a problem with it. If he actually did say what you say he said, then you make sure.

So then we're all okay with the idea of torturing American citizens to obtain information?

I got news for you. Happens all the time. Cops beat the poo out of someone if they know they have information that can save an innocent person's life.

IMO, torture should be a last resort, but I am unwilling to forbid it completely. If they think he is serious about it, and really does have relevant information, then I would torture and suffer whatever consequences the legal authorities might deem fit. Of course the situations were it might actually do some good are extremely rare.

How does one define torture?

Pulling fingernails? I think we'd all say yes.

Waterboarding? We do that to Navy Seals.

Punching a suspect over and over again?

That's like saying you don't like the idea of your wife sleeping with other people, but you'd hate to disallow her from doing it (in general. I know little to nothing about your wife).

You either don't allow torture or you do. There is no gray area.

No, its nothing like that, not even a little bit. Torture is like War. It sucks, you hate to do it, because it causes a lot of pain, but there are occasions when it might be a necessary evil.

I thought only religious conservatives and siths deal in absolutes? IMO, there are plenty of gray areas in many things.
