Should people be tortured in certain situations... Suppose that hypothetically, a terrorist plants a bomb in downtown Chicago. Suppose further that the terrorist was caught before the bomb exploded. Should we torture this man in order to save the 1000 something lives that the bomb he planted will kill? Would you sacrifice one life to save thousands? If you choose yes, should we have special government officials conducting the torture? Or should any polilceman etc, be able to? If so... isn't there a chance that they will develop certain complexes and go home and use their work against their family? Very much like military kids are raised in a more strict enviroment.
