To worry about all the convicted supporters of terrorism who are being jailed

So Anjem Choudhary and his ilk, including the charming pair who've been jailed today for supporting ISIS, have all been jailed for a few years. What happens in 5 years' time or so when they are all released? Will they really have changed their views? Or will all the time in prison to reflect and read and brood on things and possibly share their warped views with each other make things worse?

Is there a better alternative (that isn't inhumane or impossible)?

No, not whilst the European Bill of Human Rights governs our actions.

They need to be out if circulation as they are a danger to us all. I suppose they get some kind of therapy in jail?

I say lock them in isolation with 'thought for the day' playing 24/7.

In two minds... not that long ago we (the Irish) were all branded terrorists too....we've lost so much from that and there is still so much fear involved. It's part of such a huge arms game with so many vested interests that the young and vulnerable get swept up into it for something they can't help (who they are born as).

They won't have changed their views but they will have radicalised other inmates. Swapping one type of gang warfare for another.
