Hello,

It always is nice to see other Indians on this site.However, I must admit I'm not too thrilled about the 15 minute time limit for posting arguments, as I can't seem to organise my arguments that well.

I will be arguing that police torture is a really bad Idea, especially in a country with corruption like India, because it will empower them to violate human rights.

Already, the country has a yawning gap between the rich and the poor, with many celebrities like Salman Khan and Anil Ambani's son getting away with murder.

Existing laws that prevent torture of prisoners has done nothing to prevent the police from harassing RTI activists.

The police exists to protect the people.They should not take the law into their own hands.

Legalizing tortue will do just that, and will make them into a tool for corrupt politicians to spread terror among the comn people.

I look forward to your arguments.

Regards,
CynicalDiogenes

Just to be clear, you actually agree that the police can beat any detainee......

I am against this, and will say that even convicted felons should not be beaten or tortured by the police.

If this is the case I will accept it before mahashivratri......:)

please clarify this by then.....
