What does the "jury" have to say about this?

U.S. Holds 3 Juvenile Terror Suspects

quote:
Amnesty International called for their immediate release. Spokesman Alistair Hodgett said the United States was violating the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child that states ``every child deprived of his or her liberty shall have the right to prompt access to legal and other appropriate assistance.'' The United States is one of three countries that has not ratified the treaty.

No problem there… in fact, I would should scrap the young offenders act and just send kids convicted of terrorism (burglary, arson, vandalism, etc) directly to Guantanamo Bay.

'If fish can feel pain, then maybe Iraqi children can, too'

quote:
The recent report by the Royal Society suggesting that fish can feel pain will come as a severe blow to all those anglers who have hitherto operated on the principle that fish are incapable of feeling anything. It comes as an even bigger shock to those of us who have for so long applied the same principle to human beings.
If fish can feel pain, does this mean that a 13-year-old child, picked up in Afghanistan, hooded, flown several thousand miles to Cuba and kept in a chicken coop, may also experience physical sensations bordering on the uncomfortable?
