[PHI 2200] Precogs and Judges

Consider the following scenario, which is a mix of Minority Report and Judge Dredd:

Precogs can see into the future and tell when a murder is going to occur. Once the future murderer is identified, judges seize the future murderer and execute him/her on the stop.

With which of the following do you agree?
  1. Executing a future murderer is wrong (or unjust).
  2. Executing a future murderer is right (or just).
And why?
