    [h=1]NY State Senator Calls for Torture in Boston Case[/h]http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2013/04/22/us/ap-us-ny-senate-torture.html?hp&_r=0

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York state senator is advocating torture to extract information from terror suspects including the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.
    Republican Sen. Greg Ball of the Hudson Valley had taken heat for his Twitter posting Friday. He asked who wouldn't want to use torture against the second suspect in the Boston bombing.
    He continued to push the position Monday in a tweet and a press release. He says he's not shy to join those who believe torture is justified in the war on terror to save lives.
    He says that includes suspects apprehended in the United States by civil authorities.
    Ball says the Boston incident shows this may be a new normal and American should see it as a wake-up call to use a different set of rules.

    I believe shoplifters should be tortured so a bombing suspect is certainly fair game. Fuck 'em!

    I think a bombing suspect should have to talk to Stripes and Dogstar69.

    The Israelis do it. Jews torture you by raising the interest on your mortgage.

    You don't go around publicly advocating it. That way you only justify the terrorists' actions. "The USA does not torture." however we may help captives wash the mud and grime off their faces. We will happily give them as much running water and a towel as necessary to get the sand out of their faces. Gallons even.

    Froggy, I don't think this kid will need much coercing. His brother was the driving force behind these acts.

    waterboarding is such a harsh word with negative connotations. i prefer "cleanliness is next to godliness"

    as a devote muslim now that his brother is dead, it is his responsibility to take over as the head of his brother's family, providing fatherly care for his son and husbandly care for his widow.

    Rep. King, also yours, said we should interrogate him as an enemy combatant, and then give him his rights in a criminal trial, and withhold all info gleaned by said "torture".

    wtf is wrong with Boston and New York these days?
