“Torture is used to discover whether the criminal be guilty of other crimes besides those of which he is accused. Which is equivalent to the following reasoning: Thou art guilty of one crime, therefore it is possible that thou mayest have committed a thousand others; but the affair being doubtful I must try it by my criterion of truth. The laws order thee to be tormented because thou art guilty, because thou mayest be guilty, and because I choose thou shouldst be guilty.”
–From Marquis Beccaria, “An Essay on Crimes and Punishments” (1764).
