Should looters go to jail?

BIBLE HISTORY DAILY: First Person: Should These Looters Go to Jail? As published in the July/August 2017 Biblical Archaeology Review (Hershel Shanks). Much of this essay is about an imaginary looter and a (regrettably) imaginary inscription. But the question in the headline is about some real looters. More on their story is here. And more on Operation Scroll is here and links.

I leave it to you readers to decide on your own answer to the question.
