In-class writing assignment: about the castration to the child-minors sex rapist.

One girl lost everything and have to live in painful dreams. This is the news recently in South Korea: the castration. I would like to say that castration is mandatory, and if it is done, then it is better to physically castrate the criminal. The girl lost her health, personality, dreams, and the freedom to live normal life. It is justifiable for these criminals, and I will provide the reasons.

 

First, it is effective. Let’s think about chemical castration. It is expensive, and it does not even completely stop the function of testicles, which leads to sexual indulgence. So when the injection stops, criminals return to normal state. Also, punishment recently implied to the criminals, ‘electronic tagging’, is proved to be ineffective. Rapists only think this as a jewel, since police cannot know what one is doing. They only know where the person is located. However, physical castration had not failed its purpose ever since it was first enforced. In Czech Republic, operation was done on 90 criminals, and the rape rate significantly dropped since then. The punishment includes completely removing the testicles, so without further treatments, the castration lasts forever.

 

Second, it can prevent further crimes. According to a jail survey, criminals are extremely scared about physical castration, even more than capital punishment. If you are a men, then anyone would be scared of this kind of punishment, since it is permanently destroying one’s most important function in a man’s life. This is justifiable and proper punishment to prevent possible crimes, since the possible rapists will most likely cease thinking about an offense. Furthermore, critics say that the most important purpose for the punishment is making sure that these criminals return to society in a state of the normalcy. But I guess ‘ceasing the possibility’ should be better for many people who can be the future victims.

 

Some can say it is inhumane. Saying that it is a torture, and making a human’s body deformed cannot be tolerated in any circumstances. It is understandable, but the problem is, that ‘some’ do not see the damage children have gotten. Victims get their intestines, anus, vagina, and other essential organs severely damaged. It is not all. There is the damage to the brain also, as well on to one’s soul. More than we can imagine. When a psychopath do the continuous murder, many people agree that he deserves a death sentence. Then these people say this is not the case for rape, if the victim is alive. See the facts I listed above. The victims are not truly alive. They are suffering through endless torture both physically and mentally.

 

In conclusion, the chemical castration is reversible, so that the criminals can go back to the normal life, but the injury the victims got is irreversible. We should not let our precious kids in the hand of dangerous rapists. “Rape is a crime against sleep and memory; it’s after image imprints itself like an irreversible negative from the camera obscure of dreams. Though victims’ bodies would heal, their souls had sustained a damage beyond compensation.”, said an author and educator who met many victims. So for further preventions and effective punishment, I think physical castration is needed.
