The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

Okay, the decision to have trials for terrorists in non-military courts?
Yea? Or Nay. What is the opinion on the Forum? I'll start. I think it's good in some cases, not in others. Depends on the nature of the evidence. And I'll admit that there is a part of me that feels some of those boys should have been shot on site. That's my version of a proper "military trial."
So... I'm trying to get past that "shoot the bastards" instinct philosophically. Help me out here.
