TIFFIN - Twenty-one undocumented immigrants allegedly have been forced to stand naked in the Seneca County jail in an attempt to get them to sign documents that would expedite their deportation, a claim that

We torture combatants don't we?
We got rid of Habeas Corpus didn't we?
We have blurred the line between terror and war haven't we?

Welcome to the new moral disorder.
