So, under this law, a 'conspiracy' is an agreement or a kind of 'partnership' in criminal purposes in which each member becomes the agent or partner of every other member.
    Yes, I know that, I was responding to the claim that nobody did anything wrong and thus shouldn't be punished. They were mistaken. Thanks for digging that out though.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If convicted then they should be taken out back and have a bullit put in their heads right then and there.

    Can't believe I'm gonna even be close to agreeing with you Scorpion but I'll go for swift execution with no more than 1 year for appeals after sentencing.

    I know some of you will definitely not like this. But i believe that there should be a sentence of a delayed death penalty so that if we have a situation where some terrorists take hostages for some concessions on some issue then when they decide to execute a hostage we kill one of the prisoners. Sorta a reversal the prisoners in a sense become our hostages.

    Aside from anything else.....You know the terrorists would care less about that, right? Human life has no value to them....Ours or theirs.
    (that's what makes these animals so dangerous & hard to fight...Just like the Kamikazes of WWII...These guys want to die!)

    Oh I like this plan not only that if they decide to say cut off somehead then we get to go one step futher. Hmmm maybe I need to rethink my answer on this.

    We don't want to become what we are fighting. This makes us no better than they are.

    If it got to that level I want no part.

    I'm all in favor of all executions being done that way. You get convicted by a jury of your peers, you get one mandatory appeal and anything past that, you can only appeal on the basis of being factually innocent. You're innocent until proven guilty until that first conviction comes down, then as far as I'm concerned, you're guilty unless you can prove yourself innocent.

    Put an absolute 5-year cap on the execution, shorter if possible and clear those cells.

    No, why give them what they and their supporters desire, martyrdom.
