      In the third century A.D., Ulpian wrote that we should not trust information obtained through torture simply because some are “so susceptible to pain that they will tell any lie rather than suffer it.” Torture may extract some truth, but the vast majority of it will lead to false confessions, mistruths, and outright lies. Here’s What Actually Gets Terrorists To Tell The Truth — And It’s Not Torture. Over the past five years, psychological research — some involving real terrorist suspects — has shown how to get information from people who don’t want to talk.

At the same time, as a seasoned defense attorney, he was all too aware of the danger of police abuse; he.

    In his book, Why Terrorism Works: Understanding the Threat, Responding to the Challenge,Alan Dershowitz argues in favor of judicially sanctioned torture of the ticking bomb terrorist. He argues that this proposal will minimize and prevent the use of torture against ticking bomb terrorists by creating a democratic system of accountability. Not even brutal totalitarian societies (e.g., the Nazis and the Soviets), which had no qualms about using torture, were able to completely prevent violent attacks against leaders or civilians.
