Releasing Terrorists to Prevent Terrorism

Britain is reaching new heights in legal idiocy as it prepares to grant early release to up to 30 "high risk" terrrorist convicts, including "some of the most dangerous men in Britain ." Why are they doing this, you ask? Well, according to the UK's "most senior" judges,
long sentences for terrorist crimes could “inflame” rather than deter extremism

That's right, keeping terrorists in jail too long inflames extremism.With that sort of logic, maybe criminals shouldn't be imprisoned at all. A good scolding may be all they need, and maybe a fine. I don't know, that might be a bit harsh. If the fine is too great it could inflame extremism.
