Obviously, I realise even that is quite drastic, so I'm not talking about people who've downloaded porn, even if it is category 4 or 5. But people who have raped infants.

I am asking the question though... NOt arguing FOR it. Is it workable???

Maggie34Behave Thu 01-Oct-09 19:57:34

...given that only 5% of sex offenders don't reoffend. I read that on the hanging thread. That is a shocking statistic.

Hmm, I'd like to see how anyone can argue AGAINST it....

GoldenSnitch Thu 01-Oct-09 20:05:26

sod the 'chemical' just chop thier nuts off.

In fact, chop the lot off. If they can't use it properly, they shouldn't have one

tvaerialmagpiebin Thu 01-Oct-09 20:06:23

Can someone tell me exactly what this is?
I presume it is a drug treatment to suppress hormones?

drlove8 Thu 01-Oct-09 20:10:01

like bromide?. did you see that on news ? two women and a bloke emailing sick photos of what they did. angry
poor poor wee kids .
they 3 evil b`stards need shooting.

drlove8 Thu 01-Oct-09 20:12:41

sorry maggie , i dont think it would be workable long term , because they just simply wouldnt take the meds.
the american "hospital/prison" thing is an idea ... they cant leave and are away from kids .saw program about it.

Depo provera, the contraceptive jab basically. No wonder it fucks women up sad

I'd vote for the chopping their genitals off, men and women that is.
or hands maybe.
Both.

if one of those kids were mine I would want more than just castration

shock - so its group therapy for peados? ...hows that going to work ? its just getting them in touch with more sickos, and teaching them what to say to psycs to get them back into society.hmm
feel free to correct me if im wrong.

Oh, ffs.
People who are chemically castrated do not magically stop molesting kids. They find other ways of abusing them, often even worse.

tykes4eva Thu 01-Oct-09 20:27:12

totally agree drlove. i dont think these people can be rehabilitated, and therefore should not be released from prison, but then the prison becomes jammed full of people who you can't release then what?

tvaerialmagpiebin Thu 01-Oct-09 20:32:08

Without wishing to sound like a lefty lentil-weaver etc....

Surely what we need to do is address why people get like this. Do we really think that child abusers just materialise out of thin air and do sick things just for the sheer hell of it. I may be very naive but isn't it true that most abusers have been abused themselves. They have no real idea of what consititues normal physical behaviour because they have experienced the opposite.

Not for a moment am I condoning what they do, not at all. But just whacking them full of hormones isn't going to solve it, or stop them abusing in other ways, as other posters have said.

I don't claim to have the answers. And thank God my child has not suffered like the ones at the nursery in Plymouth.

drlove8 Thu 01-Oct-09 20:33:01

shoot them , or maroon them all on a island in the middle of nowhere after they get steralised ( so they cant breed future victims).sad

Jux Thu 01-Oct-09 20:37:02

Perhaps we could just tattoo it on their foreheads. Then there'd be no problem would there?

drlove8 Thu 01-Oct-09 20:38:08

not all abuse victims turn abuser and its an insult to those who have survived abuse.
i think it particuarly disgusting as it only goes to verify that the abusers who claim this , are abusing with the full knowledge of what they are doing to their victims , yet have no empathy toward them.
it is a poor me -feel sorry for me and give me slap on the wrist kind of excuse .
it angers and disgusts me beyond reason... shoot them. problem solved !

pigletmania Thu 01-Oct-09 20:40:02

yes just chop their blooming bits off that will do it, they deserve nothing less. Dont know what to do with the women though.

babybarrister Thu 01-Oct-09 20:40:45

unfortuntely it does not in fact work in that it does not remove "the urge" merely prevents genitals from being able to do anything about it .... [my experience representing paedophile killer in Broadmoor....]

babybarrister Thu 01-Oct-09 20:41:49

ie child murderer rather than killer of paedophiles ....

ThePrettiestStar Thu 01-Oct-09 20:43:31

I definitely think there is something inherently wrong with people that can do this kind of thing.

It surely can't be learned behaviour, for example, to do this to a baby?

SardineQueen Thu 01-Oct-09 20:44:46

The answer is.

Don't let people out of prison/secure hospitals until there are a whole stack of people willing to guarantee on their lives professional repuatations that there is absolutely no chance of reoffending.

This should be the case with all sexual predators/extremely violent people.

Why they let them out to do it again is beyond me.

Physical castration, tattoo on forehead, and large doses of heavy duty medication.

And tag them, not just a normal tag but a deeply implanted impossible to get out tag, so all futrue movements can be monitored.

Or the public could just be informed of local abusers.

TinyPawz Fri 02-Oct-09 14:35:16

castration is too good for them.

Cruel & Unusual punishment is the way to go. Public stoning is what is needed. These animals can't be allowed back into our society. The money that would have been spent on keeping them in prison, should be redirected into child protection, therapy for victims, and to find more of these animals.
