A (topical) tale from the Court by raistlin

User avatar
I was in Youth Court today when two 17 year old lads were brought in custody charged with attempting to join IS.

No messing. Straight to Crown Court in custody.

However, what was disturbing was their complete and utter naivety, absolute innocence, radical rhetoric, and to be frank, their almost childish misinterpretation of the Koran.

Apparently, there is no shortage of those who would follow the same path in the West Midlands.

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?

Worrying, very worrying.

Will get a whole lot worse before it gets better I fear.

The organisation is very keen to accept new recruits who have been indoctrinated under the guise of religion. They go to lengths to encourage and ease the transition of these adolescents (and others) to their goal. What they are not told, and learn at their uncomfortable leisure, is that should they realise they have made a mistake they will not under any circumstances be allowed to leave. They are then viewed as a flight risk and their circumstances are reduced drastically. Apparently there are hundreds of such people held in desperate conditions. Their families at home must be despairing.

Paul, do not hand them over to the Judges:


"Don't think of them as problems, think of them as opportunities."
"OK, I think I've hit an insurmountable opportunity!"
