Like, who? When? Frankly I see no precedent for the title of the OP. Wouldn't "The most heinous criminal" be guilty of destroying civilized society? If civilized society is destroyed, or even undermined, then how can it expect to "afford....basic rights?" Indeed, isn't the criminal who undermines civilized society, and who suffers the consequences of a less civilized society, simply "reaping what he sowed?" Specifically, we see criminals attack the US on 9/11. They do great damage to our society. Our society adopts less civilized means to defend itself. Who is to blame?
