Considering the recent events here in Scotland and the report on guantanamo bay there is definetly a huge divide on the debate as to whether terrorists should be shown compassion. What message does Scotland's action send out to those who don't understand compassion, the terrorists themselves? Scotland has made a stand but this debate needs to happen.

So what do folk think?

Terrorist freedom fighters or glorified serial killers.

You can't seperate out this question from the question of are the people in question guilty to begin with. There is certainly huge questions regarding the Scotish case. Guantanamo is just such a legal mess that I don't think any of the so called convictions can be counted on.

to me it's irrelevant paul. if someone is in prison like that on their last legs then i've no problem with them getting compassionate leave - regardless of the crime.

some trott out the old argument - 'well they didn't show compassion for their victims'...well that's the difference between us and people who commit murder! we're capable of compassion.

If they had their way then we shouldn't have treated him on our social healthcare system. Where do you draw the line? I suspect if he had been convicted in the US he would have been executed by now! He is going to die, what else do they want.

All very well as it was not our loved ones he bombed, if it was one of mine I would say fukc him. Punishment prison the death sentence is not only about the prisoner it,s about the victims too.

You can get some exceptions like the parents of Tim Parry who forgave the bastard that put a bomb in a waste paper bin in a shopping mall, but it would not be me. I would say let them rot.

Every human being deserves compassion, as long as in granting this you do not put others in danger

The only problem with the Libyans case I have is I don't think the conviction is safe, he was ordered to do so by an autocratic nut job, I always thought that Gadaffi gave semtex to the IRA and this colonel in Libyian intelligence use semtex in his transistor radio altitude bomb, at that time semtex was not easy to come by. But thats conspiracy theory nonsense, I would still question his full involvment is this atrocity.

No compassion. Let them rot in prison as an example to others. If the bastards from 7/7 were still with us I would put their heads on spikes on London Bridge.

And thus creating more people willing to die to teach the Eglish that they cant treat people like shit without that shit comng back to take revenge. That attitude serves no positive purpose.

Hmmm, indeed. Would still go for the spikes. Sorry love, more fun that way. Even if it does infringe ( yawn) human rights.

Yes I agree with this. They may be terrorists but they are still human beings. Treating them as anything less makes us worse than them

Then your asking for (and probably want) trouble like was seen on 7/7
Your part of the problem.
Its nothing to do with Human rights, it all to do with basic cop-on and common sense
If you go out and rapeand murder and torture people then its fair to expect that some of them will not take it lieing down.
