Confession is good for the soul. It can relieve an incredible weight from your shoulders, allowing you to meet the next day a changes person. The truth can have that effect on you. Confession can also be good for the body. Having elecrtodes attached to your private parts can make you see the error in your ways. It brings you closer to God, as well. At least, that's what you hope when you ask him repeatedly to get you out of your jam. But God likes confessions too. Ask any Catholic.

Sometimes the ways we try to extrude a confession from others gets called into suspicion, like when you set fire to the accused. If you are going to pour gas on somebody and threaten to light them on fire to get a confession, wait for the confession. It doesn't do you any good to simply torch them without anything signed. I think that is going too far. Although I would have confessed before they brought out the gasoline, even if I didn't do it. I can't imagine what else they tried that didn't work, to get all the way to immolation as a scare tactic.
