Well, there was that one time he was interviewed via phone on Fox News Live. What he said might give some people the idea that he's kind of horrible. For others, I'm sure they like him even more.

With the terrorists, you have to take out their families

The thing is..... HE'S RIGHT.

If a terrorist understands that his actions will cause hardship for the rest of his family, he'll rethink that beheading. Ask yourself why Russians seem to have fewer problems with terrorists than the west.

effective != morally acceptable

What happens when they choose to take out families/religions for opposing policy decisions? That comment went way too far.

Because threatening people's friends and families is a disgusting mob style tactic, maybe. One commonly employed here in the states, actually. Steven Avery comes to mind, and when they don't do things like that they severely threaten 'family men' because they know they'll plead to whatever they want to continue supporting their family. That's their goal, because men struggling to keep their family safe wont look behind the curtain too much. Pile on charges and classes and testing and whatever else you want, label them publicly as criminals so it chokes their revenue stream, they'll be so busy scrambling that you can get away with whatever you want, meanwhile you and your chums count the stacks pouring in and laugh.

TL;DR yea it's effective, the same as it would if you kidnap their children and hold them hostage.
