“Life-saving compassionate torture”

Life-saving torture is not cruel. It is motivated by a compassionate desire to avert moral catastrophes and it is morally justifiable because the right to life of innocent people trumps the physical integrity of wrongdoers.”

This idea, written by pro-torture advocate Mirko Bagaric, argues that when the US tortures individuals it’s done with the greatest care in the world and simply about saving saves. Wrong. Time and time and time again.
