That's what I'd do (I mean that is if I could withstand any pain at all). Give up information that your intel would find plausible and lead you into an ambush. I have no doubt that has happened many times.

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus

Should judges be required to spend a week in jail so they know full well what they are doing to people when they order them to be jailed?

Should you be required to honestly equate and compare things before being allowed to post?

Jail is meant to confine people. Water boarding and pepper spray are both explicitly meant to cause pain/discomfort to elicit a particular response. And, again, it's not like there isn't already a precedence of people being required to be pepper sprayed before being allowed to use it in their job.

This is what I get for reading your posts.

Even foam, though it's easier to direct, can be thrown back at you by a quick thinking person. Every time I've sprayed someone, particularly in confined spaces like cells, I've been affected by it too. The difference is they're usually getting it for the first time and aren't psychologically prepared for it.

That would make sense. Sort of like the military training involving putting on a gas mask when actively being gassed.
