On the Sandy Hook Shooter (expanding upon previous post)

The mentality of the attacker was:
  1. Loner
  2. Geek
This is very similar to other mass shooters.

Should we execute all loners and geeks, just to be on the safe side?

Or just imprison them like the Japanese during WWII or the Jews during the Holocaust?

But, if we execute the loners and the geeks, then we lose something.

Something precious, our innovation, our innovators, and the future. Should we kill the future engineers and scientists that will create new computer hardware, new cars, new houses?
