To the editor:
Perhaps my mind is twisted by having so many of my family working in corrections, but I can’t go along with the media consensus that those who approved and promoted torture should be given a pass. From Garrison Keillor on the left to soft and hard right commentators, writers agree that prosecution would be nasty and politically unpleasant and to be avoided. Many people are doing time for behavior attorneys thought defensible.
Crime pollutes the state; justice clears it — even when the criminals are well-dressed, especially when they wear flags in their lapels.
