In RealLife, however, this is perhaps the '''''single''' worst interrogation technique'' imaginable, taking the JackBauerInterrogationTechnique to new [[{{Pun}} heights]] of unreliability. Anyone with any bit of common sense should realize that an interrogator would need to keep his man alive if he's ever going to get some answers, but because this method relies on threatening to kill the person with the needed information, this means that in the event that a suspect remains uncooperative the interrogator would be put in a position where he has to either (1) not do it and lose all credibility and control of the situation, or (2) let his lead fall to his death and lose the information he would have had. [[CantKillYouStillNeedYou Dead men tell no tales]], after all. Furthermore, any death threats may give a potential informant the impression that his interrogator may just [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness kill him after he shares the information that is asked of him]], anyway, which doesn't give the potential informant any incentive to cooperate.
