I assume he is a murderous thug at best and that he holds information
that might save thousands of lives - and I still maintain that a society
that tortures him is a corrupt society, and that those who approve of
that torture are not fit for civilized companionship.
Torture corrupts a society, and its regular practice guarantees the
eventual deaths of hundreds of thousands.
