More Please! British Boxer Killed Fighting w/ Jihadis in Syria

Sure there's a risk that those going to Syria eventually come home and are better trained to commit acts of terrorism here, but it seems to me that most of those going to Syria aren't going to come home:

An amateur boxer has become the tenth known Briton to have died fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s forces in Syria.

On Thursday police were searching the house where Anil Khalil Raoufi, 20, a mechanical engineering student, lived with his family in a suburb of Manchester.
Officers said they were attempting to establish how "a man from the North West" could have come to be killed in Syria, although they did not confirm his identity.

It is believed that Raoufi was fighting with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), a jihadist group linked to al-Qaeda.

Hell, instead of prosecuting these guys if we discover their intentions why not buy them a one-way ticket?
