I give good torture-rape quote


OnMilwaukee’s editor publisher Andy Tarnoff and I had a sharp disagreement over his suggestion that the Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev be repeatedly raped in prison as a punishment. Milwaukee Magazine asked for a quote about the argument for a blog post.

“Just as the first amendment allows an entertainment website editor to make a jackass of himself, the eighth amendment prevents jackass suggestions for torturing criminals from becoming public policy.”

I think I summed it up rather nicely.
