the last time torture worked…

 

Jean de Brébeuf, J.S. (suspected spy)

Jean de Brébeuf, J.S. (suspected spy)

You would have to go way back to 1649, to a couple of Huron villages near present-day Midland, Ontario. A large group of Iroquois are intent on plugging security leaks along their northern frontier. They suspect a couple of French priests in the Jesuit order of being spies among the Huron and Neutral tribes, and reporting valuable and militarily sensitive information back to New France. They capture Jean de Brébeuf and some other guy, tie them both to stakes… and begin forceful, vigorous, and energetic interrogation techniques.

 

Ahem… what’s that?  It didn’t work? They didn’t talk after all?

Well, we now return you to our regular programming…
