On “Down in the Dungeon with the Torture Trolls (warning: rated J for Japanese graphic violence)

It's bad enough that trolls are allowed to stay and screw up the site. Now we have trolls running the blog too.

This place is going to the dogs dregs.

So... is it ok, or is it not ok? Either it's worth it, or it's not. This cowardice of "let that guy take the fall" is unserious.

Torture should be extralegal, spontaneous, and vanishingly rare.
Those obscene scumbags made an institution of torture in MY country, they legalized it and systemized it, and ginned up a whole bureaucracy to support it.
Release ALL the memos.
Let the DoJ, the Justice branch, deal with them.
Like the Founders intended.

I hope they hang ‘em high.
