I don't think there should be any question of descrating the Koran in public OR in private. The Islamic community would find that completely offensive. One might argue that they* hate us anyway, but nonetheless I see no reason to offend them further.
However I quite agree that we should not have to pay to keep these terrorists in our jails, the cost to the taxpayer will be huge seeing as they will need to be kept in secure accomodation, and probably kept on suicide watch as well.
I'm not overly keen on having this other terrorist extradicted into Britain either, another prisoner at greater cost to the British people.
Obviously I don't want these people to go free, so I therefore think capital punishment should be an available option. However, no one was actually killed by these men, depsite their best intentions so killing them might seem slightly extreme.
So, a little gentle torture to get as much information out of them as they have, then we extradite them to the US for offences there. Once we've got rid of them we can delight in the knowledge that we treated them appropriately, and trust that they'll now be dealt with fairly abroad.
*I refer to a small minority of extremists, not the Islamic community as a whole.
So we are now into killing brainwashed people who haven't even killed anyone?
The very society they attacked is a fair and a Just one.
By killing them we are merely succumbing to an extremist punishment, which is no charcteristic of the British they seek to destroy.
Lock them up forever, no early release, no insanity plea-bargaining, just bye-byes.
