This state wants to castrate child molesters

From the 'Fair Use' files of Tony Caputo

Oklahoma is showing America that is means business when it comes to child molesters. Oklahoma State Senator Mark Allen recently proposed a bill that would aim to chemically castrate violent sex offenders.

Florida and California already have similar bills on the table or in practice, and now Oklahoma has joined their ranks.
Under the proposed legislation, first time sex offenders would have the option to undergo castration in exchange for an early release. However, if they refuse and end up back in jail for a similar offense, they would be forced to be chemically castrated.

Allen said his legislation would ultimately help society by finally ridding it of repeat sex offenders.

“The inmate has to go through counseling before going through the process,” Allen said. “I think they’ve had about a 90 percent success rate. If somebody wants an early release from prison they can go through the process.”

Many people are in favor of this type of legislation, including David Slane, an attorney who has worked with over 500 sex offenders.

Slane said, “I remember one in particular who told me he went to his doctor voluntarily. He used this hormone therapy and, as he said, ‘It cured me. I no longer have the thoughts. I no longer have the sex drive.’ For years afterwards he had never re-offended. So to me, that was proof in the pudding. There may be something here.”

Every state may need to enact a law like this. Sex offenders are the worst type of people around and every possible measure should be taken to ensure that they can never harm any more innocent children ever again.

This is something that should unite people from both sides of the aisle.
