Default Re: Working Blue

Mickey's right about torture.

Er, I mean, in a very limited legal sense he's right.

He may not remember it from law school, but I do, and I'm pretty sure I went to law school before he did.

The seminal case is Ploof v. Putnam, and it says what Mickey says it says: in cases where the defense of necessity applies, an action that would ordinarily be illegal is legal if it is necessary to prevent a greater evil.

It's the defense we used in the trial of the Winooski 44. http://www.amazon.com/Por-Amor-Al-Pu...5050057&sr=1-4
