Indonesia's President has approved tough new punishments for child sex offenders, including a maximum penalty of death and chemical castration, after the brutal gang-rape and murder of a schoolgirl. "This regulation is intended to overcome the crisis caused by sexual violence against children," President Joko Widodo said at the presidential palace in Jakarta. "Sexual crimes against children are extraordinary crimes, because they threaten the lives of children."
Under previous laws, the maximum sentence for rape — including that of a minor — was 14 years in jail. By introducing chemical castration, Indonesia joins a small group of countries that use the punishment worldwide, including Poland and some states in the US.
Mr Widodo was spurred into action after the murder and gang-rape in April of a 14-year-old girl, who was attacked by a gang of drunken men and boys as she walked home from school on the western island of Sumatra. Her battered body was found three days later in woods, tied up and naked.
Eight states allow chemical or surgical castration of sex offenders. They are: California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Montana, Oregon, Texas, and Wisconsin. California was the first state to allow chemical castration when its governor signed into law a measure allowing certain sex offenders to receive medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) treatment or its equivalent as punishment for their crime. MPA, an artificial female hormone, is commonly sold under the name Depo-Provera and is used to treat abnormal uterine bleeding, promote menstrual cycles, and treat symptoms of menopause. When used by men, MPA has the effect of reducing their testosterone levels to pre-puberty levels.

This law would never pass in the US. Think of all the politicians, execs, Hollywood producers, cops, actors and powerful individuals involed in unspeakable kiddie stuff.
- a great execution method for pedos is attaching all 4 limbs to 4 different horses and pulling in different directions or just running wildly.
- or Vietnamese roulette, similar to Russian Roulette, except instead of one chance to die, you have 4, and one chance to live. ... (keep playing until dead..... imagine how mentally forked that would leave someone
Kiddie lovers deserve it.)
