Let the punishment fit the crime?

An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. It's my opinion that rapists and paedophiles should be castrated. These criminals if caught and charged go to prison and become perhaps more evil than they already are. I say, rid them of the means to think about and commit these crimes and put them and their shame back in society. If this is not enough - if these degenerates still insist on making wrong choices....medicate them. It makes me sick to my stomach to think that my tax dollars are supporting these mongrels in prison and they may re-offend following their release. Do you agree/disagree?

I totally agree with you and yes defiantly to the Castration and if the use their Hands chop them of as well I have my reasons lol to say this. As they do not just use the one thing they use their Hands to.

i feel the same way. anyone that touches a child in anyway should be raped and then castrated. because you know darn well that they'll get out far before they're projective release date. the world would be much better with these men castrated because at least you know they'd never be able to rape another girl or boy again. i agree completely. we're feeding these fools and clothing them while they're in prison. our tax dollars could go to something more meaningful like schools and children in orphanages and families that struggle to feed their children. i would much rather have my tax dollars spent on the castration of these men instead of paying for their well being in prison.

Yes, if the punishment was more scary more people would think twice before hurting another! I would brand a big R or P on their forehaeds so everyone could know what they were, but I've been a victim so my vision of these things is maybe a little scewed. I would do it to people who hurt animals too.

I most certainly agree with you, castration on 1st offence, I say send them all to an Island way far away with no way off and no electricity ,so no tv or puters or radio ,all together and they can molest each other all they want ....
