You know in the movies how the bad guy always has some "truth serum" to give to the good guy, but it doesn't work cause he is enured to this drug?
Well that doesn't happen. You whack a guy with heroin for a week and then take it away, he'll cry like a baby and tell you everything you want to know.
There's even some other recreational drugs that will get the suspect talking without him even knowing it.
Torture as punishment is barbaric.
Torture for specific information to save lives may be appropriate in some cases. Someone smarter than me would have to define the criteria tho.
My Karma ran over your Dogma.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
