I believe that torture is completely ethical, and for many reasons. Torture is a punishment that should be used throughout the world. It allows judicial officials to punish someone fairly. You see, people do many terrible things, that are punishable by even something beyond death, like torture. Torture promotes fear, and fear keeps people from doing bad things. Over all, torture is very ethical.
(Note: I do not support torture. Please remember this as I debate. Thank you.)
Torture is what some would call cruel and unusual punishment. Which most would call unethical. I feel that torture is counterproductive because you are doing terrible things to a person to find out about the terrible things he did. So the logic behind torture is "an eye for an eye"? I thought laws, procedures and rights were established so that we no longer lived in medieval times. I thought with becoming a civilized world we would do things the civilized way.
