    That might take three hearbeats, as some of them might need 2 shots.
    You know, just to be sure.

    I said "no", mainly because I feel that a false dichotomy has been presented. There are more options than "torture or not torture" and I'm not okay with torturing anyone, regardless of whether or not it is warranted.

    Give me liberty or give me death, kind of explains it don't you think? If you sacrifice your morals then what do you have left? You've now become what you despise, shouldn't someone torture you next?

    yes.

    I would be operating on emotion and I love my family.

    Would I for any old joe schmo...probably not unless I had been trained to do it properly to effect the best and most profitable outcome.

    I'd chop off fingers for my family--kill for my family--I'd draw the line at permanent disfigurement otherwise.
