well, here's my sorry attempt at an answer....
for the most part, our police forces do their jobs without torture and by keeping by the rules. if someone gets murdered, they usually find the
murderer, if there's a big narcotics deal coming down, they have ways of learning about it and closing the ring down. sure, it isn't 100%
effective, but nothing in life is. But, how are the police finding out about the narcotics deals before they happen, or find the murderer? alot of
times, they make deals with their buddies, don't they? ya know, give us what we want, and we'll reduce the time you're spending in jail a little
well, maybe here is the problem...we don't make deals with terrorists, never have, never will. the people we have in gitmo are there untill "the
end of hostilities" and then they give us all the impression that won't be in our lifetimes. no real opportunitiy to prove their
innocence....they're guilty....no debate about that one. taken them far from home....the idea of escape and returning home seems rather hopeless.
all hope taken from them, all chips removed from the table...
there's no bargaining power there. maybe this is what is creating the need for torture? I mean an innocent person can only think of so much bs to
give a person before he runs out of ideas...and then, they'll still keep coming back for more, won't they? and the same can be said of the guilty
ones really....how can one really be sure that they've told you all they know? maybe he knows more, let's find out!!! are they interrogators
psychics, that they know the guy knows something to begin with?? if they are, why don't they just read their minds and well, get the information
that way...they aren't!
I have the same gripe about their parole policies, they won't give parole until the convict shows "remorse".....but, well, no system is 100%
perfect, what if they are innocent? then all you are doing is coercing and honest person into becomming lier!
