Now, who exactly is "they"? Don't we first have to find out, before we can
actually speak about "members of their group"?
What about this Oklahoma lunatic, for example. Who was "they" in that case?
Every white person? Every white christian person? Every person of his home
town or state?
Let's say tomorrow they put you in a detention camp. Maybe you wear the
wrong beard or they got the wrong address, whatever. Would it be okay for
you, to be deprived of every chance to inform your family, speak to a
lawyer, tell your boss, try to clear the misunderstanding?
BTW, the Geneva convention was made for "regular" wars, where the parties
can be clearly identified. I haven't seen detention camps for suspected
Mafia members yet.
