Shocking War Crimes Occured in Shreveport Louisiana

The Criminal Behind the New Catholic Inquistion

In a shocking puff piece on a the Principal of Loyola and his retirement after decades(Formally Jesuit- which makes sense because we know how they are) there is this shocking stuff

"I still have dislocated shoulders from holding up dictionaries at arms length for two hours while kneeling with my nose pressed against a chalk-drawn circle on the blackboard," 1973 graduate Rob Martin recalled. But, he added, "I never got any discipline that I didn't deserve. Mr. Johnson was a rock to us — smart, tough and an excellent teacher.

I remember those huge forearms that instilled fear in us (back when Jesuit was a mass of restless teenage boys). We had tremendous respect for this great man with the big heart and the twinkle in his eye." Johnson chuckled, saying, "I can see (him) right now, red-haired Rob Martin."

He said he and others who administered the feared after-class punishments "used to give them the choice of being paddled or having penance hall." He said most chose the paddling. "'Let me have the licks. I can go home.' Kneeling with dictionaries outstretched for any length of time was excruciating."

Bill Ostendorff, Class of '72, and now high in the command structure at the Department of Energy in Washington, D.C., was a student of Johnson's three of his four years at Jesuit, "three great years of teaching that forever impacted me positively. Through four years at the U.S. Naval Academy and three post-graduate degrees from Texas, Georgetown and the University of Maryland, I have never encountered a teacher or professor who embodied the ideals and commitment to excellence that I saw in (him)."

Excellence? I hope the UN and Nancy Pelosi are on top of this. As we can see this torture and enhanced punishment techniques no doubt has had an effect as these former victims are now in the highest level of Govt. No telling how they are acting these nightmares out and becoming the new offenders

Let me be clear I am not making light of torture but it strikes me that after we get past the hot topic of water boarding there is a lot being put under this torture label. Such as throwing someone against a wall, head slaps, intense sleep deprivation, head holds, and putting a terrorist in a box with a caterpillar. In fact that dictionary thing that is mentioned above bears a similarity to a practice that appears to be banned.

As to the memos lets us review

The Attention Grab: The interrogator forcefully grabs the shirt front of the prisoner and shakes them

Attention Slap: An open-handed slap to the face aimed at causing pain and triggering fear
The Belly Slap: A hard open-handed slap to the
abdomen. The aim is to cause pain, but not internal injury. Doctors consulted advised against using a punch, which could cause lasting internal damage

Long Time Standing: This technique is described as among the most effective. Prisoners are forced to stand, handcuffed and with their feet shackled to an eye bolt in the floor, for more than 40 hours

The Cold Cell: The prisoner is left to stand naked in a cell kept near 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius)

Waterboarding: The prisoner is bound to an inclined board, feet raised and head slightly below the feet. Material is wrapped over the prisoner's face and water is poured over them. Unavoidably, the gag reflex kicks in and a terrifying fear of drowning leads to almost instant pleas to bring the treatment to a halt

Forced to listen to rap artist Eminem's "Slim Shady" album. The music was so foreign to them it made them frantic, sources said.

Now no doubt if one was arrested fpr lets say for murder most the above techniques could be used to find the bodies. But is the above all torture?
