Given the recent events where killings like this have taken place, it shows that our American system of tracking registered sex offenders needs to be improved dramatically. Just how they can improve it I am not sure, but I think that perhaps some form of tracking device should be called for.

There's one easy, and simple solution. Castration.

We should be more careful here, if the solution was easy, it would be found a long time ago. A lot of you seem to be preaching extreme solutions.
Ok, what about cases like this;
A 18-year old has consensual sex with an 16-year old, but is convicted of statutory rape. Are you going to castrate him as well?
Dawsy said Couey's half-sister and two other people were charged with obstruction for failing to notify police when Couey allegedly told them he had committed a crime. A fourth, the sheriff said, was picked up for questioning in the case but was charged only with failure to pay child support in an unrelated matter.
