    I'd agree with him. Just separate criminals from society until they are ready to come back in as productive citizens.

    Regardless of the crime committed?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Terrorists can never become productive citizens. Remove them from society by means of a short rope and a long drop.

    He murdered over a hundred people.

    He murdered a friend of mine.

    You don't see it as a big deal, huh?

    Prison is supposed to be about rehabilitation as well as punishment, but at some point you can't really argue that people CAN be rehabilitated.

    Clearly, we need to give this guy more cancer. He owes us death by cancer, damnit. Can we remove cancer via surgery from one person and place it inside him? Does that work?

    Actually in several islamic societies terrorists have been rehabilitated and re-educated with Islamic schooling.

    Keep him in prison until we know he won't commit more crimes. If he won't, then why keep him there? Yeah, it sucks, but I'd rather leave punishment to a more infallible judge, if you get my drift.

    No way in hell. Someone who plots and carrys out an attack that blows up an airliner full of totally innocent people should be either executed or locked up for life and NEVER released. One who commits mass murder has forfeited their privilege of living free in society.

    So tell me, under the system I was talking about, when exactly would someone like this get released? When would we be sure that he wouldn't do it again and so could trust him in society? My contention is that it would almost always be that he would never get released.
