Is Torture Ever Justified? - In this case, it is in regard to the due process rights of terrorist suspects and the use of torture. Is the use of torture on terrorist suspects constitutional or not. This debate began after 9/11 happened and the government implemented several anti-terrorism measures, in which justification was placed under the veil of utilitarianism. These measures outweighed many individual rights, including due-process rights and the right not to be tortured (Pollock, 2010). This removal of due-process from suspects was "so detainees and aliens could be held without charges for extended periods in investigation detentions" (Pollock, 2010, p.487)....   [tags: Criminal Justice]
