Re: A stabbing just happened (*fill in the blank*)

Ideally the perp would have been apprehended and made to face the families of the victims in court.

The man was an active threat to the public and the only course of action was that taken by the police.

Even better, the Tories would not have scrapped early release monitoring policies in 2012 and the incident might never have happened. But itís a handy - if disingenuous - stick for Bo Jons Un and Priti Vacant to wave around at election time.

Cheers,
Nick

Those with a political agenda use religion as a springboard to whip up fanaticism and we see the result before us.

Looks like we've found another supporter of state extrajudicial executions!

Lovely.

Therefore you believe all radicalised terrorists and murderers can be rehabilitated and should eventually be allowed back onto the streets!

Letís keep putting words in other peopleís mouths shall we?

Do you think the point of prison is punishment or rehabilitation?

How about protecting the rest of society from dangerous individuals?

In my view the purpose of prison is a mix of all three purposes.

Re: A stabbing just happened (*fill in the blank*)

the guy was executed by the police, the many videos posted online show the police pull everyone holding him down off, and shooting him when he's lying on the floor. He's already had one hell of a beating and been disarmed, but on the pretence of a suicide vest he was executed.

Now, while in this case he deserved what he got its a very slippery slope, this guy is now a martyr and we don't want to be going down the NI route again

So who's for extrajudicial state executions and torture?

I'm pretty sure they'd only use it for terrorists. It's not like the state has any history of abusing its power over the life and death of its citizens...

I think some people here need to work on context and how to frame questions.
