    What place does this have during a SHTF? How important would it be to successfully extract information from others?

    Maybe it would lead to the revealing of attack plans, supply storage, etc. But it does raise the issue of ethics and morality.

    I suppose we can get to methods if the conversation gets that far but if it helps you to discuss the subject an interrogation can be as simple as a conversation between two people.

    What are your thoughts on the issue?

    Thanks

    Ultimately, you'll get farther with interview than interrogation. Yes, there is a difference.

    I think youre mixing 'interrogation' with 'torture'.

    Not at all although that is the impression some are obviously getting.

    Problem is..... in order to get some details when time is short, interrogation usually leads to torture. And most people when faced with torture, will tell you anything you want to hear just to either stop the pain or have you kill them to stop the pain.

    So, I feel that interrorgation has real flaws, morals set aside for another argument in the future.

    Thanks for that response!! Other readers, take note here. This is what it looks like to share your thoughts on the issue of interrogation.

    You sounded a little like Michael Weston with those thoughts. However, I've read as much several times.

    The wonderful thing about interrogation is that there are tons of different techniques/methods...some of which have to work or no one, good or bad, would use them...but I am by no means an expert on the issue.

    I know you said you wanted to skip morality but you've done a beautiful job thus far...what are you thinking in regard to your capability of carrying out the job on a moral/ethical level?

    Thanks

    If you are only talking interrogation, and not torture, I don't see much of a moral issue there. If they are not free to leave, you need to have a good reason for that imo.

    Probably not a road many of use are qualified to head down...

    Unless you worked with the HET guys (Human Exploitation Team).

    We conduct interviews with suspects as well as interrogate suspects, but you have to have some basic techniques down before you are effective with either.

    Also, in a SHTF where there is no rule, the effectiveness of some of the techniques become a non-issue such as the prospect of punishment in a judicial system and the deals that can be made. When there is no law and order, what incentive would someone have to talk to you at all other than resorting to external pressures such as food, water, comfort, sleep, and ultimately, pain?

    I have worked in internal audit and been involved in fraud invesigations in the corporate world. I have had some training in interview techniques, especially what could not be done. I worked with a security investigator (former Detroit Police), even with limitations we had in the corporate world he was very effective. i was on his side of the table and I felt the desire he created for them to spill their guts, even when they were not the suspect. I definately did not want to be on the other side of the table from him.

    In the corporate world we only interviewed people. We never interogated them. I was stunned by some of the things people would say.

    My SHTF Interrogation/Interview kit fits nicely into a internally-lit briefcase and consist of the following items:

    - Propane torch (M. Wallace brand)
    - Various sets of pliers
    - one 12" length of pipe, one 9" length of pipe (for hard-ass hitting)

    .... I'm kidding.

    Really, unless you are really good or the guy is just dying to spill the beans, or both, you are not really going to get much out of the SHTF "interview" with just no incentive to back your game.

    Who would you Interrogate?

    :dunno:

    Once you take a prisoner you have to feed him, house him and such. . You'll have to keep him under guard 24x7.

    Now what?

    While your Interrogating him, he will be collecting info on you.

    If you release him, he will likely just run back to his group with his new found info.

    So are you going to not release him? Are you going to kill him?

    :dunno:

    Sometimes your better off not starting something that you don't have an "endgame" plan for.

    You let him go, he will bring his group back and rape and pillage. It's not a choice anymore. It's a matter of survival.
