Convicted pedophiles have the option of castration for early release so the states could save money.

what do you think?

  • The reason why castration is NOT an option is because it will NOT prevent sexual assault. They will always find another way. I wouldnt let a plea bargain be an option for some that is so sick. JMO Good question!!

  • Does early release include having them stand against the wall and their brains blown out? Sorry, but that is my take on pedophiles who have ADMITTED guilt. Ruin a child's life, end yours. That's the way I see it.

    I don't think castrating them will work. I also don't think all of the counseling in the world will repair the child of the damage done, nor will it fix the pedophile at hand. Nothing can undo the damage once the pedophile strikes and chooses to act inappropriately.

  • No, it won't help. They can find other tools to hurt children with.

  • Why bother locking them up to begin with? Convict them and put a bullet in there head at the earliest opportunity.

  • It doesn't work and only makes them more violent. They should release all non violent drug offenders serving mandatory sentences and other non violent offenders. Child molesters should get life with no parole.

  • The only 'treatment' I'm ok with for pedophiles is a lead pill. Cheap, effective, and guaranteed to make sure that no child is ever hurt by that one again.

  • unfortunately there are other ways to sexually assault someone. so unless we remove their limbs as well, then this isn't really an option. i say keep them in there til they rot.

  • Since when is having "the parts" a requirement for being a pedophile? There are female pedophiles as well. So long as they have hands - and eyes - and mouths with which to speak, they are still a threat to children.
