Don't want to put child rapists to death? We'll just castrate them instead.

Stuff like this is why Bobby Jindal is so frikkin' awesome. The Supreme Court activists justices said that the state of Louisiana can't execute child rapists, and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal retaliated by signing the "Sex Offender Chemical Castration" bill. Sah-weet!

Today, Gov. Jindal signed the "Sex Offender Chemical Castration Bill," authorizing the castration of convicted sex offenders. They get a choice: physical or chemical. Oh, and they don't just get castrated and leave - they still have to serve out their sentence.

From the release:

SB 144 by Senators Nick Gautreaux, Amedee, Dorsey, Duplessis and Mount provides that on a first conviction of aggravated rape, forcible rape, second degree sexual battery, aggravated incest, molestation of a juvenile when the victim is under the age of 13, or an aggravated crime against nature, the court may sentence the offender to undergo chemical castration. On a second conviction of the above listed crimes, the court is required to sentence the offender to undergo chemical castration.

Gov. Jindal made it absolutely clear that signing this bill today was about more than just sending a no-tolerance message across his state: "I want to send the message loud and clear - to the Supreme Court of the United States and beyond - make no mistake about it, if anyone wants to molest children and commit sexual assaults on kids they should not do so here in Louisiana. Here, we will do everything in our power to protect our children and we will not rest until justice is won and we have fully punished those who harm them."

Anyone want to take bets on how long it will be before liberals start moaning and crying over how cruel and unusual this is, and how we can't possibly do this to these poor, poor men? Anyone?

See, looking out for the welfare of the victims -- and of course, the "children" that liberals claim to so valiantly crusade for -- never seems to matter so much to liberals. They're much more concerned with making sure that murderers, rapists, and their ilk are never, ever uncomfortable or unhappy in any way whatsoever. Start talking about actually punishing them for their crimes, and liberals get furious with righteous indignation. They're never quite as concerned about the actual crime committed, though. That doesn't seem to bother them as much.

In any case, high five to Bobby Jindal for showing that, unlike a lot of Republicans, well... he's still got balls.

these poor, poor men

What about the women? Seems we've been seeing more and more sexual abuse and rape cases against women lately popping up in the news as they are dragged out of the shadows that used to hide women from even consideration. Teachers...psychologists...

Dave W:

A woman cannot forcibly rape a toddler the way a man can.

Teachers performing statutory rape aren't the same as someone raping a child. There is a HUGE distinction. The people who commit statutory rape aren't the ones who would be put to death anyways. remove them from this equation and this ruling. Violent rape of young children is what we are talking about here.

I think that Bobby Jindal is the man for signing this into law. The libs are just going to have to face up to their own unintended consequences on this issue.

I find it kind of funny that they are fine with people like Kevorkian helping kill people with diseases, but when it comes to child rapists, no, they serve some purpose to society. The left is absolutely disgusting...

"Teachers performing statutory rape aren't the same as someone raping a child. There is a HUGE distinction. The people who commit statutory rape aren't the ones who would be put to death anyways." -- Dave W.

No one's going to be being put to death by the state for ANY kind of rape from now on. In this regard, the U.S. is no longer in the same league as, say, Iran or Saudi Arabia, and for this, you can thank your Supreme Court.

Dave, obviously you understand that there are salient differences between those who are terminally ill and ask to be killed, and those who are guilty of committing awful crimes.

Abortions are still legal, so there are people who will be put to death for rape. The state spares the person who's had an opportunity to do great things for humanity but instead chose to commit atrocities against humanity; and the state protects the killing of innocent life who's had no opportunity to do great things for humanity.

And for this, you can thank your Supreme Court.

I really, really hope he becomes a voice for the right wing.

The Grumpy Old Bald Guy:

Physical Castration should be done with a Cheese Grater with out the benefit of painkillers, and as for the Chemical Castration, I'm thinking HydroFloric Acid, injected directly into the testicles. This is for Child Rapists, Im not lumping 16 year old boys getting caught with thier 15 year old Girlfriend and her daddy pressing charges, but those sick SOB's that get off on raping babies, toddlers and prepubescent children of both sexes. Also any card carrying member of NAMBLA. Or we could just NAIL their testicles to a stump out in the swamp and let the Alligators solve the problem

Stupid? I beg to differ. I've noticed a marked increase in the past year or so of women being arrested for sexually assaulting children (I think it's because it's in the paper more and/or they're being caught more). It's a very legitimate question.

Cassy, be careful when praising Bobby Jindal (called "Swindal" here in La.). He is the BIGGEST RINO and fraud ever elected in Louisiana (and that says a lot Edwin is still in jail). Unless he changes his mind in the next few days, the largest pay raise in the HISTORY of the state and probably in the nation will go into effect for the state legislature. He made a promise to the people of La. he would not allow any pay raise for the legislature to go into effect until AFTER the next election. This one will go into effect next week without his veto (125% paired down from 300%). Rush put him on the political map by referring to him (as a vice presidential candidate) a few months ago, but believe me if he doesn't veto this pay raise he will not be re-elected to another term. The legislators mentioned in your article are the main culprits this is all for show ...standard procedure in the banana republic of Louisiana. Yes I voted for him! Yes I thought he would end corruption in state government and NO he hasn't same ole...same ole! Don't beleive me read here: http://www.thedeadpelican.com/ and here: http://www.wwltv.com/local/stories/wwl062608tptucker.40b1e1c5.html The voters here are fed up with this BS and he will be voted out next election unless he has a change of mind SOON!! He has sold out the conservative people of Louisiana. Big Time!!! The legislative pay raise is only one thing, his so called "ethics reform" is a JOKE...don't get me started!! And YES I voted for him!! Damn!!

Falze, those moderately attractive female pedophiles are on TV because... people want to see them! Oh, naughty teachers!

Rape statistics are still very gendered. Men are more likely to be beaten up or shot, but women are more likely to be raped. The media's perverse interest in Foxy Blond Teachers Gone Wild is just slimy infotainment, in my opinion.

But unfortunately Jindal doesn't have enough "equipment" to veto the monstrous and ludicrous payraise for his legislator buds. I'm sorry, but a RINO by any other name still smells.

Ding dong, still wrong. I'm talking about local cases reported in the newspaper involving children, not almost-legal teens, and not these few sensationalized cases. And my question related directly to these outlier cases and how this would be applied to them - not that it was common. Shall we not punish women for mugging someone because men do it more often?

JamesT Author Profile Page:

Well. The gov of Louisiana has the power to pardon right? So, if say a child rapist gets shanked and killed, the gov could pardon the shanker.

Just saying.

In a perverted manifestation of the old jokes that a liberal is a conservative who's been arrested while a conservative is a liberal who's been mugged, the left considers criminals, specifically minority offenders (who are political prisoners anyway) a solid democratic voting block. Victims are otherwise meaningless stepping stones on the perps' journey to martyrdom and redemption through the nihilistic view of random evil as acts of civil disobedience.

I read this crap all the time when I used to pick up anarchist newspapers at a local food co-op. Angry rich white kids daydream about organizing and directing armies of prisoners, not realizing the first thing these guys would do is trade these kids' asses to each other for packs of cigs.

Emerson, those people exist on the outskirts of seriousness, and have no impact on the political process, anymore than their far-right counterparts do. Actually, anarchists are far-right, in that they believe "government" is wrong, full stop. Still, they often have very good pot, good CD collections, and throw fun parties, so there's no harm being friends with a handful of them.

Falze--prosecute everybody who commits an offence, regardless of gender, obviously. I don't think we're disagreeing about anything; as to whether or not you're seeing more reported cases of woman-on-toddler pedophilia in your local newspaper, I have no idea. Pedophilia still seems more likely to manifest itself in men, based on what I read, but who knows, maybe women are closing the perv gap. Fingers crossed, ladies! /sarc

Hyper:Nazism is sh... (Below threshold)


Nazism is short for National Socialism, and Hitler joined with both the obvioulsy far left USSR (for a while) and Mussolini. Left and Right are meaningless, it's between socialism and representative democracy. Churchill wrote that socialism's only inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. To that I add it punishes success and rewards laziness and failure.

It's hard to say what American anarchists believe, as their ranks are filled with nihilists, sociopathic assholes and spoiled adult children who hate everyone around them and won't stop talking about it. They're against government, yeah, but they're against everything for its own sake. Their versions of life under anarchy are vague at best as they have no idea what to do on a daily basis besides equating Bush with Hitler and littering buildings with posters.

Anarchy in Europe is more serious, dangerous, Orwellian and Kafkaesque. Here in America it's a phase for most and an unfortunate lifetime choice for psychopaths.

Well, you can have a repres... (Below threshold)

Well, you can have a representative democracy that is socialist. I'm a social democrat, and there's nothing contradictory within that label.

Anarchists (well, the teenagers who call themselves anarchists) are reponsible for keeping the oh-so-shitty-and-expensive AK Press in funds. I love reading stuff by Emma Goldman et al, but the tripe they publish is laughably bad. I guess that might have to do with committed anarchists dropping out of school and removing themselves from society before developing a respectable grasp of English in school. I dunno. Good for a laugh, anyway. As for European anarchists being Orwellian, um, they're assholes but pretty much diametrically opposed to police statism.

Great idea Mitchell. But if he gets the tingle down just one leg would you "fix" the ball on just that side or do both???

Just wondering
