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?

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.

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.

Besides that being a pretty rotten comparison, what you're describing is also illegal.

Should we change the laws to let them both be legal?

It is not a rotten comparison. It's dead on.

Do you stop at every stop sign, even when no one's around? Sometimes people see a bigger picture...like innocent lives at stake...and they make individual decisions to go past what the law allows. I'm fine with that when terrorists are involved.

And American citizens, too, evidently. And you're okay with it being done illegally.

If he's a terrorist, you're damn right I am. Anyone willing to kill innocent people to make some political point doesn't value human life and I'm fine with not giving them human rights. They don't play by any rules.

Then make torture legal and extend it to all American citizens. People would love that.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
