    2 hours ago  Darius Rejali, in his book about torture and democracy, claims that torture is pretty much ubiquitous—democracies do it, autocracies do it. But the tactics countries use vary. Democracies tend to prefer what he calls “torture light,” or what they believe is non-scarring torture—sleep deprivation, exposure to cold, etc. Pastor Richard Wurmbrand (–) was an evangelical minister who endured fourteen years of Communist imprisonment and torture in his homeland of Romania. Few names are better known in Romania, where he is one of the most widely recognized Christian leaders, authors, and educators.

      The story has also served the basis for a number of novels and nonfiction books, making The Torture Mother amongst the most notorious American killers and indeed the most violent criminal in Indiana history, as her prosecutor darkly described. Sources: New York Daily News, Indystar, Indianapolis Monthly, Daily Mail. Torture definition, the act of inflicting excruciating pain, as punishment or revenge, as a means of getting a confession or information, or for sheer cruelty. See more.
