Next up:

"Well if that guy robbed my house, and he may know who will rob my neighbors house, I'm all for torturing him!"

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 you knew you personally would be the victim of his next shooting, would you waterboard him to save your own life?

Obviously not.

Jack Bauer would.

But if I had the opportunity to waterboard him, I'd be diligent enough to not let him escape, get a gun and then come back and shoot me.

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.


The problem is treating other people with a double standard.


There are plenty of criminals in America that have information, but we don't torture them.


The idea that America wants to be the flagship nation needs to be supported by not having openly contradicting actions.

You dodged the question. That doesn't mean you win, it means you have a flaw in your thinking.... you may not be entirely wrong, but your position is not without its vices. if it was, you'd have been able to answer sans Jack Bauer shields.

If you're talking law, I agree. If you're talking having a suspect in a room with no witnesses, and he knows where bombs are that will kill innocent people, I say do what you gotta do. Just don't film yourselves doing it.
