Don't Hurt Me - I Have Rights!

Remember all the whining and crying on the left about "torture" and how America shouldn't stoop so low and resort to the methods of the enemy. Well, courtesy of ABC News and RightWingNews, here's the "torture" the left doesn't want the military to inflict upon captured terrorists, who (it should be noted) fly airplanes into buildings, strap on explosive vests packed with ball bearings to go to weddings/funerals, take school children hostage to wire them with pounds of Semtex, and cut off heads for shits and giggles:
  • The Attention Grab: The interrogator forcefully grabs the shirt front of the prisoner and shakes him.
  • Attention Slap: An open-handed slap aimed at causing pain and triggering fear.
  • The Belly Slap: A hard open-handed slap to the stomach. The aim is to cause pain, but not internal injury. Doctors consulted advised against using a punch, which could cause lasting internal damage.
  • Long Time Standing: This technique is described as among the most effective. Prisoners are forced to stand, handcuffed and with their feet shackled to an eye bolt in the floor for more than 40 hours. Exhaustion and sleep deprivation are effective in yielding confessions.
  • The Cold Cell: The prisoner is left to stand naked in a cell kept near 50 degrees. Throughout the time in the cell the prisoner is doused with cold water.
  • Water Boarding: The prisoner is bound to an inclined board, feet raised and head slightly below the feet. Cellophane is wrapped over the prisoner's face and water is poured over him. Unavoidably, the gag reflex kicks in and a terrifying fear of drowning leads to almost instant pleas to bring the treatment to a halt.
Correct us if we're wrong, but at least three of these were used semi-regularly during PT at the Academy in recent memory along with the "Leaning Rest." We wouldn't be surprised to find out that all six were used along with the "Telephone" by Burge and the boys in the back rooms. According to International Law, only the "Telephone" would rise to the definition of torture. These are merely coercive. Should the day come when terrorists smuggle a device into this country, we pray that someone uses these "torture methods" to save innocent lives.

I'm not one for torture, but I'm definately not one for airplanes into high rise buildings or any other mayhem they wish to bestow upon the U.S. If they wish to do battle and be
treated in a humane fashion, then wear a uniform and fight a conventional war. Otherwise, fuck em!

I'd like to know where you work. Is every single offender on every job arrested in your district? Don't give me that "home front" bullshit. If it's so important to protect the home front then you should go to 016. But you probably wouldn't want to give up your spot. Besides, you'd have nothing to do when you're off work if you didn't sit around listening to your scanner.

It is common policy with new developments to have set-asides for "affordable housing". These units almost invariably go to people who we don't want to live near us due to their different mores and values (i.e. staying up on a work night until 3AM making noise on the front porch). This reeks of socialism! In a capitalistic system this is not supposed to occur.
This is done in the name of the almighty God of Diversity. News flash! Diversity isn't a noble goal to be forced upon us. It is something that we should be allowed to embrace or not as we choose.
If diversity is so important, can anyone tell me how much money is spent in traditionally black colleges in an effort to recruit white & Asian students? Do non-blacks get extra points on their entrance exams, as minorities do elsewhere in order to push for diversity on the campus? I have heard many blacks say they are sending their children to these traditionally black universities so they can "be with their own". The only way I can be near all Caucasians is if I move to a rural area. The hypcocrisy is a shame in the whole diversity issue. I would wager that if a legitimate survey was taken, the results would say that most people want to live with those that are like them and share a common value structure. Its sad that diversity is being forced upon us. LET US COOSE OUR OWN FATE!
Lastly, its not because the color of a persons skin that I don't want to live near them, its because its been my experience that those of other races do have different value systems, many of which I don't want my children to be exposed to . I am not saying that my values are right and theirs are wrong, but my neighborhood at this point does reflect these views and I would like that to remain unchanged. My children can learn about other cultures when they get older and are in high school.

when you call someone on their use of proper spelling and grammar, make sure yours' is correct---contex is not a word but context is and youre is not a word but you're is----for example: "don't take this out of context but you're a retard, go back to first grade."

S.C.C.

Let me start by saying that I'm far from liberal. In fact, I'm one of the few card carrying Republicans in the City of Chicago, County of Cook.

However, when it comes to prisoner torture, you got this one wrong S.C.C. While some of these techniques you've descibed are borderline acceptable, ones such as "Water Boarding" and the "Belly Slap" can't be described any other way than "cruel and unusual." You know, Eighth Amendment territory.

It's tempting to condone this type of conduct considering that some of these prisoners are responsible for heinous acts of terrorism. But we're the U.S., the good guys, shining beacon for the rest of the world, and what have you.

If our founders in their ultimate wisdom prohibited such conduct by the government against its own citizens, the U.S. shouldn't be carving out exceptions for citizens of other countries.

Also, please remember that not everyone subject to these measures actually committed the crime of which they are suspected.

Torture works (physical & psychological), is used at all levels of law enforcement, and will always be used...until a better method comes along.

Only certain people have the heart to administer it and of course some enjoy it.

As long as torture produces results and saves lives, I will continue to sleep well at night.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I don't want all the citizens of the city living where I live, especially the citizens in my district. Even if they are clean and work hard, their relatives may come by.

If you can't afford to live in certain areas, you don't belong there.

Some may not like this comment, but look at predominantly minority areas and they turn the areas into shit. My area is clean. No garbage on streets and no people standing on corners or sitting in their cars all night.

Yes, torture is wrong and produces flawed results in that the subject tells whatever he thinks will stop the pain. But you misunderstand the post. These are not torture by any means of the imagination. These are coercive methods. None of these violate the protocols of the Geneva convention, International Law or in fact, US Law.

If the Army wanted to, they could line these people up against a wall and shoot them - they were caught on the field of battle not wearing the uniform of a recognized armed force; they regularly conceal themselves among the civilian populace; they are not signatories to any treaties. But we don't do that. These aren't "citizens of other countries" - they're terrorists and unlawful combatants. Everyone of them has had at least one hearing, sometimes more before they are shipped to Gitmo. Anyone who says different is ignorant of the facts. These are bad apples and whatever is necessary to get info out of them and save innocent lives, we'd support. The fact that ABC News and certain politicans claim this is "torture" is simply a lie told for political purposes and it could at some point, endanger innocents.

The so called "minoritY" in chicago is not a minority, they are the majority. They chose who will be the Mayor, who will run Cook County and every thing else.

Only when Chicago is just like Gary Ind. and no longer suitable to live in will things change.

S.C.C.

Not to belabor this point (though I am on topic - a novel concept on this blog), but where does one draw the distiction between what is merely "coercive" and what constitutes torture when a detainee is subjected to repeated slaps and waterboarding?

If I can't legally use these measures when interrogating a gangbanger suspected in a shooting (bear in mind organized street gangs have claimed many more lives in this country than terrorism did on 9/11), then why is it acceptable for the military to use these techniques against "unlawful combatants," whatever those are?

Should only those who wage war on behalf of a recognized government be entitled to the protections of the Geneva convention? Aren't we carrying out torture on a technicality here?

Why are these measures only being used on prisoners detained outside the U.S. such as Guantanamo Bay? Can you really keep a straight face when you say none of these measures violate U.S. law? Exactly what U.S. law allows these interrogation tactics?

I admire your zeal for bringing the terrorists to justice and averting future attacks. However, we are the U.S. and do not (and should not) have the luxury of an "ends justify the means" approach in the war on terror.

WTF? how many hundreds died on 11 Sept??? can you actually sit there and tell us torture of a few assholes (Assholes at the least) in order to save the lives of INNOCENT individuals (be them Americans, or whom ever) shuldent be condoned? If they wear a uniform, they are in the Millitary, and shuld be subjected to the Geneva Convention (not like 3rd world countries read it) If they wear a face-mask, toilet paper arround the head, a Table cloth or any thing else, The rules went out the window when the plane went into the window at the world trade, pentagon and so on.... Unfortunatly its just a matter of time before they have a chance to hit us again (I got a funny feeling that its gonna happen!) GOD FORBID if it happens here! I wouldent wish that on anyone. But... If it does, and one of yours, be it family or friend, gets killed, I'm willing to venture that you will be the first one who walks a pig into the room where Osama's mother is tied down and has the poor animal ass-rape mom while Osama is watching!

I am no liberal but first the terrorists, then the gang members, then "corrupt organizations", then corrupt organizations definitions will include police departments, government agencies, and then individuals who's actions disrupt society, then anyone suspected of commiting a crime.
