I'm sorry but from the moment a person joins with the enemy, they are no longer citizens, they are in fact enemy combatants on top of
I am against the current government and the people who operate it. They are not working for the people as they are elected, appointed or hired to do.
The acts congress commits is just as bad, if not worse than treason. Yet are we going to kill them all in cold blood?
I don't actually think people arguing this are in fact Terrorists themselves, but you simply cannot make excuses for or defend the actions of
Since there is no clear information on this 16 y/o boy, then to assume he was a terrorist or even took part in terrorist acts or training, is
misleading and just ignorant. You didn't know this boy, and so far no one has provided any information on him (assuming any even exists).
I do worry how the laws will be applied, but in this case the person is a Terrorist. You cannot gather evidence for a trial when in combat
against Terrorist groups, nor should anyone be expected to. The simple solution is for the Terrorism to stop. Making it easier for them to get off and
rejoin their fellow Terrorists in trying to eliminate the West from the face of the earth is well, just dumb and very naive.
Today the definition of a terrorist can be protesters. For example...the
authorities in London recently labeled
#occupylondon a domestic terrorist group.
yet they aren't breaking any laws...unless protesting is suddenly a terrorist act now. Denouncing your
government, isn't terrorism. It's called revolting.
This kid was dead before he was born. His fate was sealed by the person who would raise him. He is not a child by any stretch and could not be
considered as such in this case. The true blame lies with those who brainwashed him and raised him. Placing him in a prison here would only allow him
to recruit others and result in lots of innocent victims. Doing so would make anyone involved in part guilty for the inevitable future deaths at their
Did you even think about what you were writing? Or are you just going to use stereotype remarks to make your point. A kid is a kid. 16 or 6. How he is
raised doesn't change that fact. Again, you assume this child was a terrorist and was performing terrorist acts. Prove this. Instead of insulting
someone who can't defend himself. We have several terrorists in prisons in the US and Cuba...do you see them "recruiting" anyone? Imprisoning them
might give more steam for terrorists to join a "jihad" but it in no way means they are recruiting anyone.
At some point you must add common sense to the law if you do not want to make it worse rather than better. Once a person joins with the
Terrorists, they give up any Rights. Why do think Treason is supposed to result in being shot on sight? It's because that person if left alive will
kill anyone on the other side. It's naive to think otherwise I'm sure.
Everyone has rights. even criminals, and in this case terrorists. We give people in prison meals, beds, water, clothing etc. And I think you need to
reread that constitutional article again : "No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act,
or on Confession in open Court.
" I don't know where you get this killing from, but I think you are watching too many movies. This is reality, not
a game show or a blockbuster film.
