Isn’t imprisoning terrorists a human rights violation?
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will set out tougher rules on releasing people convicted of terrorism offences after an Islamist attacker injured two people in a stabbing spree days after he was set free half way through his prison term.
Sudesh Amman, jailed in 2018 for possession of terrorist documents and disseminating terrorist publications, was shot dead by police on Sunday after he went on the rampage with a stolen 10-inch (25 cm) knife on a busy London street.
Amman had previously praised the Islamic State militant group, shared an online al Qaeda magazine and encouraged his girlfriend to behead her parents.
Johnson said the government would announce fundamental changes in dealing with people convicted of terrorism offences.
“Those measures will build upon the actions we have already put in place,” said his interior minister, Priti Patel. She said there would be legislation to end the early release from prison of counter-terrorism offenders.
“It is right that these individuals are kept behind bars,” Patel said.
So, you move all of these terrorists into your country, then you lock them all up?
This seems like a really convoluted way of stopping terrorism in Britain.
Wouldn’t it be easier to simply not flood your country with terrorists in the first place?
