Abstract:
Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowtiz proposes the United States adopts a torture warrant for situations such as a "ticking time bomb" scenario. In other words, he is recommending making torture part of our judicial system. My thesis explains Dershowitz's "ticking time bomb" dilemma, describes his controversial view on torture, and recommends an alternative solution. In "The Evan Willis Hypothesis," I point out flaws in Dershowitz's argument, such as limited time restraints, the impact of legalizing torture warrants, and the results of "coddled" torturing. I then submit my own resolution.
