Just a minor quibble. Torture is the use of physical or emotional coercion to extract evidence or a confession for a crime, and is a separate thing from whatever punishment is later given. So no, the protection against cruel and unusual punishment in the Constitution would not apply to torture.
Speaking of which, a great read on the history of the use of torture in western societies is “Torture and the Law of Proof” by John Langbein.
Wow… “Torture and the Law of Proof” by John Langbein.
Was this a required, but unreferenced/uncited, text for some law course? Perhaps your teacher was a sadist (or even professor Langbein?)
You bring up references as obscure as mine.
I had to read it for one of my undergrad econ history classes. Very interesting book.
Weird All for office
