    Default Castration a "Cure" for child molesters?????

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/0..._n_831502.html


    I apoligize Merlin, for stealing your link.... After I read the article, I spent some hours in thought. I generally do my best to try and be forgiving of most people that have wronged me. When someone wrongs a child, or someone I love, I am NOT able to forgive... I do not believe their is a cure for anyone sick enough to harm a child. My only hope is that kharma is quick to rid the world of this disgusting person before he has the opportunity to harm again. One fond memory of loving Eureka, was a story that came about of a wife suffering spousal abuse.... some lovely women went to discuss this issue with the husband, and if I recall, one broke her cane on this fellow, and had several replacement canes within hours.

    Unfortunately, castration will only remove one of the "tools" of molestation. It will not remove the emotional, psychological or physical need to commit such horrendous acts.

    Exactly what I was going to say only more eloquently stated.
    I choose...to live by choice, not chance; to make changes, not excuses; to be motivated, not manipulated; to be useful, not used; to excel, not compete. I choose self esteem, not self pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice, not random opinions of others.

    Zyklon-B is a good cure for child molesters.

    MM12, first, no apology necessary. I welcome all discussion on the subject. The more public awareness the better. I believe it has been clearly demonstrated this method does not stop molesters nor for that matter rapist. What it might do is deter someone. I stress the worf might. The death penalty didn't stop murder.

    The additional arguement that the death penalty for molesters has also been discussed at length. The arguement is that if the penalty is death it will encourage the molester to kill the child when finished. The penalty doesn't change.

    Having spent, now in my 19th years trying to get molesters out of Carroll County and help the children I have two suggestions:

    1. Every time a prosecutor or judge (circuit) files for election you ask them "in public" their position on the isssue. Make it a priority with them.
    2. Demand life in prison without parole.

    Lastly, serve on juries. We still live in a place where who you are (not just CC but America) determines both the charge and the punishment. Don't allow that to continue.

    I am blessed that three of the four major missions of the foundation are now permenent serving women and children in our area, Child Abuse, Domestic Violence and Rape. None were here when we started in 1993. Our last, as you know is Breast Cancer and children and families in poverty. At closer to 70 than 60 my time is seemingly limited so yes, steal the thread, raise awareness and get everyone to join in to stop, the "catch and release" program that goes on in our courts with these offenders.

    It surely stopped the murderer where he/she was executed....

    A "Leper Island" for child molesters sounds like a reasonable punishment.... NO access to children ever...
