Even without physical damage, Jack, torture seriously damages a person's mental state. You've basically reworked their understanding of the world, where they are supplicant, fearful, and possibly mentally damaged. Torture is hard to overcome mentally, and is best left alone accept in extreme cases (against anyone who is sadistic enough to have tortured some one themselves). Most people abstain from torture on moral grounds, because of its inhumanity. The more realistic interrogation method is intimidation, or coercion through manipulative discussion (bringing up a criminal's actions as an effect against loved ones, or loss of job, etc.)
