In the Czech Republic, the issue was brought home last month when Antonin Novak, 43, was sentenced to life in prison after raping and killing Jakub Simanek, a 9-year-old boy who disappeared last May. Mr. Novak [pictured above], who had served four and a half years in prison for sexual offenses in Slovakia, had been ordered to undergo outpatient treatment, but had failed to show up several months before the murder. Advocates of surgical castration argued that had he been castrated, the tragedy could have been prevented.
Some sex offenders even want to be castrated because they don’t want to have the urges anymore. LITTLE CHILDREN anyone?
And they’ll castrate a chipmanzee for THROWING ROCKS, but let a kiddy-diddler keep his doodles?
