    Should all child molesters be castrated before leaving prison?

    This sounds like a good idea to me. I think that all convicted child molesters should receive mandatory castration in addition to their prison sentences. I don't know why we aren't doing this. I've heard that sometimes pedophiles get offered castration as a way to reduce their sentence, but **** that. Just castrate all of them I say.

    often it is not a purely sexual thing, it can be more about power and control, or something like that.

    and how would you go about castrating female child molesters?

    so i dont think castrating all would be a good idea, only those whose motivations are mostly sexual

    How can you tell what their motivation is? And if they molested a kid then I don't think they really have a right to complain. That's my opinion.

    well you can ask them, put them through therapy to find out, that sort of thing.

    on that second point, i agree, however it's not likely to be effective in all cases

    A german woman shot dead in court a pedophile, who had raped and murdered her child.

    He had been previously chemically castrate at his request, then when that did not work, he was physically castrated, that obviously did not work, to cause an erection is a mental thing, his mind was not normal, so he could still become erect.

    Pedophile should be locked up until there is a proven medical cure.

    Ever heard of "cruel and unusual punishment?" It is against the law for a reason.

    Child abusers of all kinds should be sterilized. I have no problem with taking more draconian measures to make it less likely for child molesters to victimize more children.

    Given my druthers, child molesters would be executed. The only thing that stops me from endorsing such a policy is that it would provide a perverse incentive for molesters to kill their victims.

    Re: Should all child molesters be castrated before leaving prison?

    I don't see any justification for such a measure as a routine procedure, but regard it as a viable option in special cases.

    No definition of and distinction between terms like "child molester" and"pedophile" has been offered.
    There are significant differences in the popular, clinical and legal understanding of the terms, which call for different judgment and consideration.

    I ask the topic starter to give a more detailed overview of the type of offenders and gravity of offense castration is proposed for.
    "REGRETTABLE NECESSITY, n. An avoidable atrocity. The term is often employed by presidents and prime ministers when announcing bombings of civilian targets and invasions of small countries."

    I guess the arguement against it would be the same as those against capital punishment: what if they are innocent? Once you cut it off, it's no longer returnable, so to speak.

    But just for pure satisfaction factor for the victim's family, I would support it.
