Prosecutor: “You look nice. Would you like to serve your country by sticking your head in a toilet so I can see if you’ll drown?”

April 14, 2009

The WSJ Law Blog is reporting something that, at first glance, is, well, a shocking call for volunteers.  The Vilas County Prosecutor in Wisconsin is seeking women who are 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 140 lbs., who would be willing to stick their head in a toilet to see if it they’ll drown.  Apparently, the victim in the murder was depressed, so maybe they should do a depression screening of the volunteers.  It seems that might be probative.

It’s shocking, I suppose, but not really.  Why doesn’t the prosecutor just ask Donald Rumsfeld?  That’s what he authorized in Abu Ghraib and beyond, so I’m assuming there must be select government evidence on this issue and, since it is government evidence, it will likely show that one cannot drown in a toilet.  That would be torture.
