State Senators Approve Sex-Offender Castration

BATON ROUGE, La. -- The Louisiana Senate has approved a proposal to impose physical or chemical castration on sex offenders.

The bill by Sen. Nick Gautreaux, D-Meaux, would give judges the option of imposing chemical castration on those convicted of aggravated rape, simple rape and indecent behavior with a juvenile.

Chemical castration would be mandatory on second offenses, and the offender would have the option of choosing physical castration instead.

The bill moves to the House.

[Ed: Previously, the use of castration as a punishment has been used against blacks convicted of rape (often with very thin evidence) in the Jim Crow South as well as against racial or genetic "inferiors" by the German National Socialists. This is an evil policy motivated by the darkest of impulses. Those who would support it have much to examine within themselves.]
