Default Should EVERYBODY be given a fair process?

Just curious: What do you think. Should EVERYBODY be given human rights, such as a fair lawsuit? Think about the likes of Hitler, Stalin, ... Should there be a difference between "normal" criminals and people who, without a doubt, commited genocide or mass murder? What if there were VERY little doubts (e.g. Bin Laden)? Do you think itīs important for society that everybody is within the right?

If this is reference to our other thread, I don't think fair process is at issue, but rather severity of punishment.

Milosevic can have a fair trial, and they be shot when he's found guilty by the mountain of evidence.

Yes, fair trial for everyone. Unless, we end up like the people we are fighting and we turn our society into a copy of theirs. Our grandchildren are safer if we don't.

Due process for all. Anything else leads to a very slippery slope.

Look at the ridiculousness going on in the Hussein trial. They should have shot the rat in his nest.

No. Republicans should be shot on sight.

Loss of liberty never begins with something happening to a good person. It always strats with a scumbag being denied rights. Everybody says "who cares, he's a scumbag." Eventually, the definition of scumbag gets expanded.

That's why scumbags deserve defense attorneys.

Those people you mentioned were/are entitled to a fair trial followed by a first class hanging (or lynching in the case of an innocent verdict).

You need to brush up on your legal terminology, or just give your post a once-over after you write it (human rights? fair lawsuit?).

Anywho...

In some situations, an individual should be outright killed without any attempt for apprehension or a fair trial...

...unless you think GWB should call up the Rangers, SEALS, and Force Recon and tell them to set their phasers on stun while hunting Osama.
