First of all, I don't know how accurate this report is, but if it is true, then we have a problem here. Yes, child molesters and other sex predators are the scum of the earth but, as despicable as these people are, we still have a Constitution that forbids cruel and unusual punishment, even for scum like this.(Sutton County, TX) – Hundreds of violent and predatory sex offenders are being transferred from multiple correctional facilities all over Texas to a specialized medical research facility where they will spend the rest of their lives being used as subjects in medical experimentation and testing.
In a bold move Texas congress passed a bill in early October to give researchers permission to use the most violent, predatory, repeat sex offenders as the first human subjects who will be used in more cutting edge clinical inquiries.
Castrate 'em? I'm OK with that. But to force them into medical experiments is beyond anything that could even be considered remotely civilized. Are we a nation of laws, or a nation of savages? That, my friends, is the 64 thousand dollar question. Yes, revenge is nice. I would love those punks to suffer immensely, but what price am I willing to pay for that? The loss of my own humanity? My answer to that question is a resounding NO!!
Finally, while evaluating this thread, consider the source, as to whether this is really true or not. But either way, this is a very interesting question, and I am sure that we are going to get some very interesting answers in this thread. So what say you?
