! Luban
! 2 models in thinking about terrorism
! law: treat them as criminals
! war: treat them as enemy soldiers
! US war on terror uses elements of each and puts them together in hybrid model
this gives US advantages of both without the restrictions
! but we should either take the law model or the war model and not use hybrid
! pg. 9
! law model you have to prosecute ppl. for their personal involvement and not only based on
their membership to a group that have engaged in criminal acts
! war model everyone is a legitimate target
! pg. 10
! criminal law punishes both conspiracy and the wrongful act
! Waltzer
! pg. 9
! if the police could prevent 5 killings by killing collaterally one person he is not allowed to
kill b/c there is big restriction on collateral damage in the law model
! better let 10 guilty ppl go than 1 innocent person convicted (law model)
! punishment in law model is dependent on their crime
