LOTS of people have been tortured, suffered, and died throughout history.
Some eras were worse, others better, but people can be really inhuman to each other.
Heck, we even have torture schools, some teach you to be tortured, others to do the torturing part. It's a government specialty.
Torture sucks. Me, I can't watch it. It doesn't bother other people. I understand both sides. But I can't watch it, myself. I don't hold to the theory
you never get information that way. You do. It's noisy, and there's lots of bad data. But it's useful if you have other info to weigh it against. And,
of course, there's lots of ways to torment people. It's not just soldering irons up the ass. You can cut people loose from their community really
easily. That's torture, too, in its own way, and that works a lot of times better than breaking toes or faux shoving people out of helicopters.
