ALBANY - Would it be okay to torture Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to get information? One New York State senator has immersed himself in controversy by saying he'd be "the first in line" to conduct the torture.
Sen. Greg Ball, R-Lower Hudson Valley, not only continues to defend his position on torture, he also continues to suggest those people who disagree with him need to check their own conscience.
After the marathon bombing suspect was captured Friday, Ball tweeted:
So, scum bag #2 in custody. Who wouldn't use torture on this punk to save more lives?

He then proceeded to double down his comments speaking with Fox News.
