    We (Australia) do not have a Bill of Rights. We have a written Constitution...the laws that govern the country, but not specifically a Bill of Rights. Even if we did, similar to America, I would still advocate for the castration, or better yet, the execution of child rapists. It is not fair and it is not just that children and women who are raped receive a life sentence, but the rapist is free to walk around a few years later, free to do it to some child or woman again. Why is it that the rights of criminals are protected but the rights of victims are not?
    Muslims are not radicalized by poverty, racism or lack of integration. Muslims are radicalised by Islam. The fact is that Islam is the only religion where its followers become more violent, the more they follow their religion. Author not known to me

    Depends on what state you live in. If it's not a federal crime, it's their call.

Why not subject them to the entire prison running a train on them, THEN flay them alive?

    Of course, I'm being extreme, to illustrate the point that when you allow the behavior of the criminal to change your national morality on the treatment of criminals, where and how do you draw the line? Of course this is an emotional topic, which is why I bring up your constitution. These documents are important because they provide sound guidance when emotion makes wisdom difficult. If this is constitutionally allowable, that's one thing. If not, well...that's another.
    Being extreme is ok. Passionate is ok. Why stop there? Because castration may be the only thing that stops sexual predators. No need to go beyond that.
