We really hate sex offenders as much as the next normal human being, but damn, do we have to chop off their kibbles & bits for the rest of their lives?
A new bill passed a Senate committee in Louisiana today that could give judges just that option. For first time offenders, judges would have the option to chop it off or burn it off in a chemical process called MPA (medroxyprogestrone acetate). For second time offenders, the judge would be required to turn them into a eunuch, as long as a doctor agreed. Just in case you thought this was the easy way out, the bill clearly states that the castration would not decrease jail sentences at all. Just an extra little bonus.
While removing someones sex organs would definitely deter sex crimes, is it right? What if we find out they were wrongly-convicted years down the line? The twig n berries wont grow back. This type of punishment hasnt been legally practiced anywhere since the 19th centuryunless you count the Nazis
Should we have it here in the uk?
