More Cruel than Capital Punishment? The Case for Castration

I left a comment on The Badger Blog Alliance about what to do with violent sexual predators.


That got me thinking, why don't we castrate violent sexual offenders? Cruel and unusual punishment? Capital punishment must be more cruel at the very least.


I can see how we wouldn't want this done if there was the chance of castrating the wrong person. Fine. Require DNA evidence or other conclusive evidence that shows 99.9% certainty that the party is guilty.

Is it the unusual factor that makes it not used? I don't think it's that unusual. Perhaps no one has brought it up since we gained the technology to do DNA testing.


If someone is an expert of sorts on the history of "cruel and unusual punishment" cases, please let me know where this falls as far as precedent.


It seems like the perfect solution, castrated, the individual will be impotent and have no sex drive. While I'm no expert on this, I ask you, why not castrate violent sex offenders?

My understanding is that castration - whether physical or chemical - does not stop sex offenders from offending again.

And, while I understand the impulse, I'm not a big fan of allowing the state to sever body parts. A little to Islamic for my taste.
