Letting The Terrorists Terrorize Us, Ctd

More

by Chris Bodenner

The FBI arrested four men last night for attempting to bomb two Bronx synagogues. Hilzoy reacts:

This raises the difficult question: what should we do with these would-be terrorists while they await trial? And if they are convicted, what then? I assume that if it's too dangerous to move people at Guantanamo to the United States, it must be much too dangerous to allow these jihadists to run loose in our prisons. After all, they might provide financing for other jihadists from their supermax cells, or radicalize other prisoners, or use special Terrorist Mind Control Techniques to create a whole army of brainwashed convicts under their complete control. I'd suggest killing them, cutting them into pieces, and shipping their parts to parts unknown immediately.

I'm waiting for Harry Reid to hold a press conference demanding that the suspects not be transferred from their police cars to a prison cell (i.e. "released").
