Hardened crooks have copied the CIA-style interrogation technique where water is poured on to a cloth covering the victim’s mouth and nose to simulate drowning.
Why in the world would criminals used ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’? I thought they were the equivalent of frat pranks or just a little good natured ‘roughing up’. Yep…there’s nothing like being the example for the rest of the world.
You may not weep at the thought of drug dealers behaving in this fashion; you might however be disappointed that they’re taking their cue from the government of the United States of America.
The story brought this quote to mind….
The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
