SENATOR GREG BALL ISSUES STATEMENT ON TERROR TWEET

Brewster, N.Y. – (4/21/13) –Senator Greg Ball (R,C,I-Patterson) Chairman of the New York State Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee issued the following statement following his Friday night tweet regarding Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

“On most days, New York State is terrorist target #1, and playing paddy cake with mass murdering killers is not effective in my opinion. In the war against these sick cowards who seek to harm innocent men, women and children, information can and often does save lives. Terrorists play by a different set of rules by manipulating the greatest strengths of our open society against us. One of the questions to be asked is this: is “torture” ever justified in the war against terror, if it can save lives? I am not shy in joining those who say yes, and I believe we must give those tasked with protecting us every constitutional and effective tool to do so,” said Senator Greg Ball.
