NJ: New Jersey child molesters won’t face castration threat any time soon

[trentonian.com]

 

In a year filled with arrests for sexual crimes against child victims, there is a familiar refrain heard each time one of these arrests is announced. “Castrate him,” is shouted from all corners of society and social media.

Almost 80 alleged child molesters or kiddie porn collectors were arrested this year by a regional task force. None of those offenders, however, will ever have to face castration-style penalties if convicted in New Jersey Superior Court.

That’s because New Jersey, unlike a handful of states across America, lacks a law that would require certain sex offenders to be neutered or semi-neutered.

Removing a sex offender’s testicles or doping him up on testosterone-reducing drugs may sound harsh, but that is the law of the land in certain jurisdictions outside the Garden State.

Several states across America have laws requiring certain child molesters to take so-called “chemical castration” hormonal drugs that curtail sexual desire by sharply reducing testosterone levels, but New Jersey state lawmakers have not seriously considered that idea since the turn of the century.

Surgical castration — a medical procedure that physically removes a male’s testicles — is an option for certain Megan’s Law offenders in California who prefer to voluntarily undergo a permanent, surgical alternative to hormonal chemical treatment.

Attorney General Christopher Porrino, during his final weeks as New Jersey’s top cop, has announced this month the arrests of 79 alleged child predators or child pornography offenders under “Operation Safety Net,” a nine-month, multi-agency child protection initiative led by the New Jersey Regional Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.

    Holy…!!!

    The article actually credits California’s LOW recidivism rate to… you guessed it…

    The relatively low rate of convicted sex offenders committing new sex crimes in California suggests the Golden State’s comprehensive method of managing convicted sex offenders (through castration) is effective.

    You can’t make this stuff up.

      Oh! I forgot cutting the thief’s hands off now has one little problem, he can’t do many other things, provide or take care of self and family and live a whole normal life and enjoy life etc…..etc….! Well, what the heeeeeelllll, a man with no testicles can’t have family or joy of sexual relationship and play the masculine role in life etc……etc! HELLO! And this is acceptable, so called treatment….NOooo! It is clear violation of right to procreate and cruel and unusual punishment ! Does not matter he did this or that ! Law forbids this action! Like the Francis Tullier case ! Fuuuuuged up BC——-not AD judge said……render unto Caesar what’s Caesar’s ! Who in the blazes lets this ROMAN Nut Job Be a Ruler in An modern day advanced, civilized Democracy that is based on Judaism, Christian values ! Who allowed this SICK twisted perverse judge to operate in the courts??? Who? Anyone?

    This is gender discrimination because it does not mention spaying of females, just neutering males. Same effect on different body parts.

    I may be mistaken but I always though castration was becoming a eunuch. You know removing the whole twig and berries.

    On top of that I don’t exactly understand the point of removing someone’s testies as that’s basically what happens when we get a vasectomy or married anyway, haha.

    Either way physical mutilation is cruel and unusual. The female version would have to be sewing together her ehem…. Area

      Chemical castration changes your hormone balance, which should reduce aggressive behavior and sexual impulses. Physical castration is the removal of the testicles, which does similar things, but is permanent. This is very different from a vasectomy. When a male has a vasectomy, hormone levels are not affected, as the testicles are intact.

      The ancient Greeks had three types of castration, only one removed all of the equipment.

      In regards to RC’s, I knew of two that had chemical castration, it helped but wasn’t a silver bullet. One ended up civilly committed. It does not always help with ingrained thought patterns about risk and reward.

      In regard to the article, most of these guys do not deserve chemical or physical castration. I believe the author’s religious and/or cultural background are the driving force of the article, and his thinly veiled outrage that all should be treated in a hideous manner comes across as something that should be acceptable by all people. He doesn’t accept that castrations have limited usefulness and that are not required automatically.

    This is stupid as hell ! even think that this is right ! really ? we still have to worry about something this barbaric ! just because of these sick a$$ mites that always yelling out on some form this trash , this kind of thing was going on real tough in like 1927 Buck v Bell ,
