He did something bad, but he still has rights as an American to not be tortured if we let this happen to one which this country did almost 30 years ago now we see it has run amok the abuse of power the expensive over use of isolation. All because we have no humanity.
You might not like Tom but hes a living breathing soul just like you and me.
