    Taser = Torture? Why hasn't the BO administration weighed in on this, or have they?

    You Loon. The BO admin is weighing in on torture. The whole country is talking about torture. The questions are legitimate. What part of the questions are "stupid"?

    You just saw an opportunity to throw an insult and you took it. Why don't you try actually presenting a position on the questions?

    Good grief. What a load of crap.

    If the officer cannot endure the training or has a doctor's excuse or whatever, he is a washout. This has absolutely nothing to do with The Prophet and is not torture.

    Where in the world do you get your ideas?

    Another thing, if I were posing the questions just to provoke an argument, I'd have used some provocative title like most of you Loons do.

    As an electrician, I can say without a doubt that purposefully zapping someone with that much voltage can easily be defined as torture. All it takes is that and weak heart and you have an instant corpse.

    BS. Tasering causes extreme pain and discomfort (and sometimes kills people). Isn’t that what the BO admin and the Loon brigade are so upset about?

    What are you saying: Aa cop who feels his life is in eminent danger is different from a president who feels like his country in eminent danger?

    Where do we draw the line in the sand?

    He is still a washout and still needs the training and exposure to the Taser since he carries one.

    Frankly some of the training I went through in the military could easily be classified as torture as the media is trying to define it these days. The purpose was 1) to prepare us for what might happen, 2) to train us for physical adversity, and 3) for us (at least officers were told this in my time) so in mock interrogation exercises that we would understand why there is reason to steer the troops away from extreme measures - when possible.
