Firefighters found Cole walking near the Palouse Highway and Valley Chapel Road with a broken nose, concussion and wounds “all about his head and body,” ... The assault charge alleged the men inflicted harm “which by design did cause such pain or agony as to be the equivalent of that produced by torture.”I guess they didn't find any of their stolen property, if you believe the people who think torture can't work to obtain accurate information.
The suspects are accused of dragging Cole from his apartment at 3005 E. 35th Ave. hours after the burglary, then beating him until he told them where to find some of the stolen items.What do you know. It looks like beating information out of someone actually worked. Who knew? Pretty much any criminal brutal enough to employ it knows that torture can be a relatively quick and effective way to extract accurate information, especially when that information can be verified by independent means.
