    Oh, what a nice scenario. But in real life, there are a few problems:
    1. You don’t know for sure the guy did it. The guy is just a suspect at this point.
    2. The suspect could be you.
    3. Someone under torture will do or say anything to make it stop. The info is unreliable.
    4. You assume it will be used with good sense and only for high probability suspects that “really deserve it”, but once you agree with torture, where do you draw the line? Only presumed terrorists? Only presumed murderers? What about presumed rapists? Or presumed kidnappers? Or… Next thing you know, torture becomes standard practice and you slide all the way back to the effing middle ages.
    There is a reason why torture was banned in every civilized country.

    Nah, she should have made him a guest account. What’s the point of password protection if you are going to log someone else in upon request?

    Insanity – doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result.

    A rather poor definition, but still, when is Mrs. Godfrey going to understand that sending Nate to detention isn’t working?

    There was about 2 decades break in between where we didn’t go out of our way to kill each other.

    Just about enough time to harvest another crop of kids to fill the trenches, now that I thing of it.

    @William Pursell This is ID, not the USA.

    Who doesn’t like a nice win-win scenario?

    It’s a matter of quantity. 33lb of minerals and a bit of toxic sounds bad, but it enables you to read the sunday paper for years without paper… according to a recycling website, 500,000 trees are cut for every weekly run of all Sunday newspapers.

    Say “thank you”, tree. Rudy’s right on that one.
