Scalia: Torture’s ‘bad,’ but not ‘unconstitutional’

Last month, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia sparked controversy when he defended torture on BBC radio, claiming that it’s “absurd” to say that the government “can’t stick something under the fingernails” of a suspect to get information. In Missouri last night, Scalia again said torture should be allowed. “It’s a bad thing to do,” said Scalia. “But not everything that is bad is unconstitutional.”
