    Default Suppose you tortured someone

    How would you do the interviews to find out what they knew?

    Why the hell would I have to torture someone to find out what I want to know? I'm not wired for that crazy shit, man.

    Doesn't torturing someone just make them tell you what you want to hear even if they don't know anything? I think it's stupid and mean.

    Torture has been shown to be ineffective in getting at the truth. People will say whatever will make the torture stop, which means they are often saying simply what they think the torturer wants to hear.
    Though the ground was burnt and everything turned into ashes, we will revive again. The sky is still blue, the crashing waves from long ago are unchanged. This is Earth, our planet. This dream is in the hearts of people; so long as they do not abandon it, it will not fade away. For the sake of tomorrow, keep a song in your heart. For the sake of our future, let us stop our crying and stand on our ground firmly.

    That's what seems to be the conclusion from what happened after 9/11 with the water boarding and all that. Worthless.

    Suppose further that someone from apparently organized crimes had approached your family to do violence on you. You don't know what issue this is related to. You had a minor dispute over a payment in some job. Then you were employed with someone who also had problems with you. Then a friend of friend made a contact with you and there was a whatsapp message to deliver the package to the said location, or else. Now you've done nothing. But someone surely wanted to do violence on your family. Wouldn't you want to interview that person to find out what was that person's problems related to, and how you are related to that?

    Do I need to tell this is make-believe and an exercise, and not an actual situation?

    Wait, the guy in the basement is wailing. I have to get back to him

    You do realize you post is coming across as gibberish, right?

    Don't you have the will to decipher. It isn't like there's lack of substance

    If it helps, lets make this a philosophical question.

    Suppose you've lived a nice life with no major arguments with anyone. However, someone is threatening you with mafia-like violence and you now have him captured. You don't know where he came from but you have three suspects.

    *One guy is in dispute over a plumbing job
    *Someone doesn't like how you cleaned his car
    *Someone wanted some goods transported for him and they are not there

    So, the guy was supposed to do violence on your family as a revenge on something, but now that he's captured, he's not willing to talk. How would you find out which of the three possible grievances that guy has on his mind? Can we trust what he is going to say? Is there a way to approach the truth? So tell your non-torture ways of finding this out. Why was this guy on your lawn threatening on your family, and he was definitely going to do something. We got him tied now so he's not going anywhere. What can we do to find out why he approached these premises?
