Question about Gitmo prisoners: Law vs. Ethics?

There are 3 categories of prisoners 1. Innocent people who we just picked up at the wrong place wrong time 2. terrorists who have clearly broken the law. 3. Those who seem to want to harm us, who are probably dangerous, but we don't technically have evidence against them to convict them of a crime. ... show more There are 3 categories of prisoners

1. Innocent people who we just picked up at the wrong place wrong time

2. terrorists who have clearly broken the law.

3. Those who seem to want to harm us, who are probably dangerous, but we don't technically have evidence against them to convict them of a crime. and some of the evidence we obtained can't be used in a court of law because it was obtained through illegal methods like waterboarding.

So my question is: What do we do with that 3rd category of prisoners?
Follow the law and let them go?
Or break the law, fellow ethics, and keep them in prison?
