U.S. journalist Michael Foley was recently beheaded by the ISIS terrorists association in the middle east. After video of his execution went public online news organizations reported that the U.S. government had threatened Foley’s parents with criminal prosecution if they paid the ransom themselves. Proponents argue that there is no price on a human life and the US should allow families to pay ransom to terrorist organizations if they choose too. Opponents argue that paying ransom will encourage terrorists around the world to kidnap Americans.  See recent terrorist ransom news
