American Morning’s Wednesday audience was horrified to see the alleged killer of Dr. Tiller being given prominent coverage for his views.
What do you think about Dr. Tiller’s alleged murderer being given media attention? Would such an action trigger “copy-cat” murders? Should the alleged killer be considered a “terrorist” as suggested by one viewer? Should he be given the right to voice his opinion or should others who are official “spokespersons” be the ones to express themselves?
Some were perplexed by the controversy surrounding the Gitmo detainees being house in a U.S. prison, noting that some of the most notorious prisoners of all time have been safely secured in maximum security centers in the U.S.
Del: This is the silliest controversy yet! The only problem with incarcerating Gitmo detainees in US Prisons is the extra cost of solitary confinement. They will not convert Americans to terrorism because they will not meet them. IF they are put in the general population, they will not survive 48 hours! Think Jeffrey Dahmer. Prisoners are lawbreakers, not traitors. For that matter, what would happen if they were released in the US? I'm sure we'd be glad to come welcome them with shotguns in hand.
What do you think about the Gitmo detainees being incarcerated in U.S. prisons? With so many dangerous criminals successfully housed in such facilities, is this a non-issue as the viewer suggests, or something more serious that needs further examination?
