I heard on the local news they invented this shot for sex offenders. It's a depo shot to lower their sex drive so they won't have the sexual desires. That should be wonderful news to you all.

sadly, this measure does not keep some from re-offending. it only suppresses the physical sexual drive, not the sick psychological factors that cause them to do what they do. recidivism still occurs. more often than not, i would think.

This sort of question... I have no clue how to answer. I want to say that they should die (animals get put down for less...) but then, I have no clue if I am being logical/rational/moral, or being vindictive (seeing as I was molested when I was younger...)

Oh hell, I'm just not good with morality questions period.

I don't know how to answer this poll seeing as it isn't worded correctly...

The poll question is flawed.

"do convicted serial sexual predators deserve to live or should they be euthanised?"

is not a yes or no question. Yes could be "yes, convicted serial sexual predators deserve to live" or it could be "yes theys should be euthanised"

I think that the bad ones should be "isolated from mankind and his environment" for the duration of their lives. I say lock them in a cell with no means of killing themselves and leave them to consider their crimes.

The lesser ones might or might not be safe to release at the end of fixed terms of jail time.

I know it is tempting to kill off the worst cases, when captal punishment is used it is a step onto a very slippery slope which could lead into the abyss. But I am not 100 % either pro or anti death sentance.

yeah I kind of thought this too so I didn't vote.

but I'm anti death penalty no matter what the crime is.

I think if a sexual predator is killed in revenge by someone who'd been hurt by them, the person who kills them should be able to just walk or get a minimum time though.

sexual offenders are usually perverted.
a perversion is a misappropriation of a natural drive.
so people who like to have sex with donkeys are perverted and people who like to have sex with children are also perverted.

the perversion lies in the fact that their desires are misplaced, and are not biologically logical.

even masturbation is a "perversion" because the result is not conducive to reproduction.

but people will act very forcibly to satisfy their sexual urges, even if those urges are "perverted".

i attach no emotional connotation to that word. i just know that sexual drives that are aimed at inappropriate targets are not what we want to happen freely in society.

so how to deal with it?

i would propose not just a chemical castration, but a physical one for people that are driven to criminal acts in order to get sexual gratification.

i think that people who have sex with children, or rape any people, should be ridded of their sexual desires by castration if they wish to remain in our society.

if they want to be given another chance, then they should sacrifice the gonads that drove them to the inappropriate and unsavoury acts they enacted because of them.

a sexless person will never commit a sexual crime.
castrated sexual predators may devote what little wit they have instead to productive development... if they have their "all reigning and authoritative" testicles cut off.




i would say that they should be castrated if they wish to stay in society, or they may remain with their sexual drive and wank away in prison for their lives.

If you're a 40 year old man molesting a 3 year old boy, you've got some heavy-duty problems upstairs most likely stemming from some child abuse so it's partly not the offender's fault. His actions are his own fault, sure but the inherent behavior or the desire to offend - the seed which was planted wouldn't have been there had he not endured the trauma himself. That is why I'm all for rehabilitation.

Touch my daughter and I will f*** you up one side and down the other.

Baited poll answers by the way.

no I believe in castration for those type of individuals that lessens the sexual urge. Furthermore they should be kept locked up if its serial offenses.
