After the slaying, Christian used the victim's credit and debit cards to get money through an ATM, buy gasoline and shop at Wal-Mart and other placesIt sounds like he might have gotten some accurate information on those PIN numbers. I know I'm beating this to death -- no pun intended -- but nonsense about torture not working is repeated time and time again. It may be painful for some to admit, but torture can be quite effective at extracting accurate information -- especially when that information is specific and verifiable.

Torture Works Yet Again
Ronald Christian was sentenced to 107 years yesterday for torturing & killing another man in Alaska. Among other things, Christian wanted the victim's PIN numbers for his ATM and bank cards. Apparently unaware that torture doesn't work -- as many torture opponents like to pretend -- Christian tortured the victim for information before he killed him.
