SMF (SAD MOTHERFUCKER)
As you read this, someone somewhere is being tortured
by a government agent. Torture is the deliberate infliction of pain, physical
and/or psychological. Its application can either leave no physical scars (deprivation
of sleep, food, or water) or it can be applied so severely that it kills the
subject. Torture is practiced throughout the world by government security
forces and their auxiliaries, as well as by insurgent or other armed actors.
While it is frequently used to extract information or incriminate a subject,
it is also used to produce terror. Incredibly gruesome torture killings are
not so much aimed at the unfortunate victim but at that person's entire community.
The effects of torture can linger even for an entire lifetime. In terms of
the U.S.A., torture has figured as part of its counter-terror doctrine, and
its use has been documented on the part of domestic police forces and U.S.
