A 14-year-old girl was raped in a park in the capital on Saturday, allegedly by two men from Eastern Europe.
Meanwhile, a government minister has said surgical castration might be the best option for those who raped minors.
"Society has to protect itself."
How many times do we hear that a convicted sex offender has reoffended?

I for one consider capital punishment equally barbaric to any form of dismembering of victims.
Changing our society, equalizing people, improving our educational systems and seeking to rehabilitate the offender is the only right thing to do.

One thing that doesn't change though is that predators CAN'T be rehabilitated.

I'm with Intrepid on this. If we go cutting off body parts of people who break the law, we're going to have to cut the hands off thieves and murders, and cut the tongues out of those who perjure. It's barbaric.

I understand your position, truly. But I think the biggest reason we haven't found a way to rehabilitate these monsters is because no one is willing to spend as much money seeking that answer as they are housing them in prisons.
I have to say, it isn't that they can't, the way simply hasn't been found yet. And the reason that I say is because these crimes aren't crimes of 'passion' but rather psychology. That's a fact too.
