Question: Why bother with torture, when I can just give you a shot and you can't help but tell the truth? Wouldn't the shot be cheaper?

I don't think we should be injecting terrorists with alcohol, that might not go over to well

I feel like injecting alcohol in general probably isn't a great idea...

It might also be for psychological impact. If you know you will probably be tortured during interrogation you might be more likely to spill what you know before they begin. Where the shot on the other hand, unless you have a phobia of needles, you could just force them to use it even if it's for no other reason than being obstinate. The downside to torture though, is that if the person being questioned doesn't have your information, they might tell you what you want to hear just to make it stop.

Well it might be more expensive.
Since with waterboarding all you'll need is a table, some water, and a towel.

And you have to pay the people that do the water boarding. You think they're volunteering?

you'd have to pay someone to DJ 4DM1Nister the shot as well
besides it's not like if they weren't waterboarding someone they'd get the day off

I'm just saying, it takes time to break someone down with torture, especially tortures that don't leave lasting marks. So why not give them a shot and be finished in an hour instead of spending days or weeks screwing around with a guy that may genuinely not know anything about what his boss is planning?

When the objective is gathering information, the faster the better. Also, sodium penthonol is cheep.
