Nakiya Steen Chapter 5 Response Walter S. Riley Elizabeth Walter Torture Torture is an act that is used by someone to force pain on an individual and in return receive sensitive information. The chapter dealt with the viewpoints of torture. WHile many believe that torture is acceptable especially when the victim is left alive, I disagree and believe an individual should not be exploited for information. I do not think torture is the only way to can urgent information: “Because torture has immense costs. These are significant enough to outweigh any tactical gain, should there actually be any.” (Burke, Jason) It is not okay to physically hurt someone and claim it for the better good of a nation. I understand that innocent lives could be at stake but innocent or not these people are humans. Though I do believe in a well equipped military I do not believe that intentionally hurting someone for information is something that is okay.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
