i read that in germany, sex criminals are castrated by law! and it seems that this law is quite effective as it generates low re-offending rates among those who had undergone the procedure! as for the surgical castration, it is conducted by an expert, however it comes not as a punishment, but as an option! yes an option, and on average there have been five such castration every year over the past decade!
at first i was shocked by this law, but when i thought about that nepalese woman abducted at a mall and raped for 9 hours in jahra, it suddenly grew on me - i really wish they apply it here in kuwait forcibly and not as an option, maybe then sex criminals would think twice before committing their crimes!
