I thought this merited its own thread, rather than continuing the thread about the child castration cannibal guy. * The question occurred to me while reading about the Boston bombing debate on the BBC The BBC mention that some US commentators want the bombers to be treated as enemy combatants. My question is: why not paedophiles? Paedophiles have a clear agenda, they share advice, and they network and work together to cause horrific injuries and death. Indeed, several orders of magnitude more deaths and injuries than terrorism. Apparently the principle is that if a bad guy is sufficiently bad or somehow well organised then the gloves come off. So, again, my question is: can we detain paedophiles with a streamlined process of law, and or shoot them with unmanned drones? *Incidentally the guy is a British immigrant to the USA, and I feel not enough British people are stating unequivocally that we're against kidnapping, torturing, and eating children.
