    Quite regrettable really. Apparently she was quite a good student. Just imagine her parents thinking "Where did we go wrong?"

    Celebrating the death of anyone is shameful. I have nothing more to say.
    So you'd cry for hitler or stalin or chairman mao would you? Thats a really flawed sense of morality you've got there.

    No because I dont think we should give the state that kind of power.Goverments have shown themselves to be incompetent in the past and they'd probably get it wrong.But thats a different topic,this wasnt an execution she died in a war.If anything it was suicide.

    I hardly think a misled child is on the same level as a dictator like Hitler.

    But surely a serial killer deserves death more than a 16 year old who joined a terror group to be sexually abused? Funny enough, the former would have caused much more "terror".

    I wouldn't call it suicide since she was a bit dim about the risks.

    EDIT: She joined when she was 15 I think.

    So?
    Maybe she could've gone on to study Medicine and cured Cancer idk... Point is she seemed bright so it feels like a waste of talent. Plus she missed out on life in general. Kids are generally easy to trick I guess.

    Obviously the serial killer deserves death more.But 15/16 is more than old enough to know the risks especially as the media has been filled with news about them. This 16 year old joined a group which has committed genocide.Nobody made her go to syria so that kind of indicated she wanted to join in with their activities.You make it sound like she was a victim in all of this but you dont just accidentally stumble into isis.You're actually making 16 year olds sound really stupid but how many of them join a terror group? They deserve a lot more credit than that.

    Why does the news paint it as sad when a female ISIS member dies? She must have been an incredibly horrible person. I really couldn't care less.

    You said anyone.And this misled child could very easily have been a murderer herself.

    Well she must have regretted it later on since she wanted to return. I'm guessing it wasn't all bunnies and rainbows like she expected.

    Agree to disagree tbh. I just find celebrating a 16 year old's death and being against capital punishment being mutually exclusive.

    I still don't think that the actual death of anyone, Hitler included, should be celebrated. We can celebrate what followed on from Hitler's death - the fact that he killed no more innocents. But, the same consequences could have been achieved by other means. For example, imprisoning him for life. As such, no I would not celebrate Hitler's death.

    Out of curiosity, would you feel sympathy for a French woman who married a murdering SS stormtrooper during the Second World War only to then be killed in an Allied air attack?
    It's far worse than that. It's the equivalent of a young woman in 1943 watching Nazi propaganda videos showing the gassing, torture and mass murder of Jews and deciding 'oh yeah, I want some of that' and rushing off to occupied Poland to shack up with one of the SS murderers responsible and to play a role in the atrocities. I wonder if anyone would have expressed sympathy with that young woman if she'd been killed in an Allied airstrike or if anyone would have said 'oh well, she just got radicalised by Nazism, it's obviously partly our fault for letting this happen', but I doubt it. It only ever seems to be Muslims who cannot be held fully responsible for what they do.

    You are so on point.

    I don't see why the two should be mutually exclusive. Capital punishment has a meaning, and being unintentionally (as far as we know) killed in an airstrike is not it.

    Being opposed to capital punishment != being opposed to death more generally.

    I didn't say the girl getting killed was CP. Or am I misunderstanding?

    If you don't want a serial killer to face death but you're inflating balloons when a girl who probably hasn't committed any acts of physical violence (let alone killing someone) is killed, it's pretty contradictory imo.

    In what way? You're for CP or against the partying?
