What are your thoughts on physical torture?


Recommended Posts

I am wondering what do you think about physical torture being used on criminals. Would painful torture as a punishment scare people away from committing crimes? Why would it be a good or bad idea to torture criminals as punishment.

Depends entirely on the criminal and the nature of the crime they’re considering... plus their motivations for considering it... but, in most cases, no. It would teach people to avoid getting caught, not to avoid the crime.
