-points to the philosophy forum-
Meant to ponder and consider this, so try not to gut react to the topic alone but actually consider this:
Lets say in 100 years, there is a way to 100% predict if a newborn will murder someone in their life. Do you execute the infant right then and there?
imprison for life, or simply let it go about life with absolute certainty that people will die (unknown, might be one, might be millions, but they
will maliciously kill, that is the only certainty. Maybe when they are 10 years old, maybe 100..who knows.)
...and try not to get too bogged down in "The Minority Report" side discussion..although that is similar in concept, this academic consideration is
about a infant, not full grown people a hour before they do whatever it is they are going to do.
Also, I know the concept is impossible technically speaking, well, as far as we know...but just roll with it anyhow.
