Should extradition be given to people with neurological conditions such as Asperger's Syndrome?

  • They do not know

    Yes, if you have a mental illness that is messing with your brain like this, then you can not think and function properly and how a normal person would, so you will be more prone to do things that are very wrong, but will not realize that your doing it.

  • Neurological syndromes do not make it OK

    Labelling someone with a neurological dysfunction does not make them beyond the reach of the law. There are still consequences for such people in all countries. If a crime is committed in a country, it is up to that country's criminal justice system to decide what that consequence is. This is not just a duty, it is a sovereign right. Just because we identify things a certain way in our country does not mean it should be done that way in all countries

  • Yes, some deserve extradition.

    If I could answer this question with both yes and no I would, because this is a very complex question with many moral and ethical philosophic approaches. But if one is suffering from a mental illness, that affects how they think and even their ability to make simple choices. This has tobe taken into account.

  • Based on the same rules as anyone else

    To one of the No Column people of course we shouldn't extradite people just because they have Asperger's Syndrome.

    But not extraditing someone just because they have Asperger's would be like not extraditing someone just because they have ADHD.

    A desire to hurt people or act out criminally is not part of the diagnostic criteria for Asperger's Syndrome.

    People with Asperger's sometimes get phds or find themselves at the front of innovation. So the notion of granting them special treatment when involved in a crime is ludicrous.

  • No why would we extradite a person?

    No we shouldn't extradite people with Asperger's Syndrome from America. What kind of message does this send to the people around the world. Hey if you have a disability we will force you to move from the country, because we don't give a damn about people of the United States of America. No way should we do this by any means. I forgot this is a country that doesn't care about it's own people. We care more about money, and foreign countries than we do about the homeless and sick in our own backyard. We need to stop playing rescuer to everyone and clean up our backyard first and foremost.

  • Extradition for Asperger Syndrome should not be allowed

    Someone with Aspergers, and or Neurological conditions should not be extradited for any situation. People with a functioning brain can't understand what exactly is going on in the mind of these people and they really don't know what they are doing. It is very unfortunate that they don't understand that they might be hurting people but you can't punish them for something that they don't understand and send them somewhere unkown that they had no idea of doing something wrong.
