I dont think Torture should be in the United States... People do stuff wrong but if you Torture them your going lower than them. I do think they should die how they killed the person say if someone kills someone but beating them and leaveing them in the wood they should have that done to them but I find Torture wrong... I think you should let them die how they kill people

Thank you for accepting my debate.

Why I believe torture should be allowed


At first glance, we need to realize that the people the government torture are not some regular people, but are terrorists who's goal is to kill innocent people. The government needs to have every tool possible to extract information, as long as it doesn't kill him. I believe it is justified. Torture methods such as Water-boarding are only used in time ticking situations.


We also need to remember what the role of government. in this limited government, it's job is to protect the people. Once we start to regulate and make it harder to for them to do their job, it makes it easier for terrorists.

Torture in the United states should not be allowed because it no human being should have to go threw that much pain! When we start torturing what will happen next.
