Thread Name: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
If anything I have slightly hardened my position. UK law does not acknowledge her defection to Isis is by itself a crime. I would argue it should be. She should be both punished and incarcerated until it is established she poses no threat.

There are those that argue:
she has been groomed, trafficked and horribly abused

She is brainwashed. She was an immature teen when she went. She has lived for years amongst extremists

She was a child when she left and is not yet out of her teens.

etc etc

There are some here who are saying "they were just kids" and are the same people who were campaigning for the referendum voting age to be lowered to 16 on the grounds that people of that age are perfectly capable of exercising mature judgement.

The fluffy bunnies are those that seek excuses and refuse to acknowledge the crime. You backwoodsman have never been among their number on this thread.

I do not think that saying coochie, coochie coo and handing out a giro is really going to hack it!r
