Special 24 Post – Now I Know I’m in Trouble

So the end of the world is nigh. Apparenty, the Canucks had a judges conference, in which the topic of Jack Bauer and 24 came up.

It was a whole heady discussion about is it right that Jack uses so much torture, and should he abandon Constitutional Law and whether he should make such claims as:

  • “Tell me where the bomb is or I will kill your son.”
  • “I don’t want to bypass the Constitution, but these are extraordinary circumstances.”
  • “I need to use every advantage I’ve got.”
  • “If we want to procure any information from this suspect, we’re going to have to do it behind closed doors.”
  • “I’m talking about doing what’s necessary to stop this warhead from being used against us.”
  • “When I’m finished with you, you’re gonna wish that you felt this good again.”
  • “You don’t have any more useful information, do you?”

Me? I say “HELL YEAH” I did not stick with this show for 6 seasons to have a dull, boring and NICE Jack. It’s called drama. It’s called fantasy. Would everyone just chill out, and stop blaming 24 for the United States’ activity in the Middle East?

And this is the kicker…. Justice Antonin Scalia agrees with me. Or I agree with him. Regardless – we see eye to eye on this one. *SIGH* Oh well. At least I know 24 won’t get taken off the air without a fight now…

Get the article, in all of it’s dull reporting-ness here.
