    IL - Sex Offender Tries To Castrate Himself

    At least he tried to do something, but too bad he didn't succeed all the way.

    SPRINGFIELD -- A convicted sex offender tried to castrate himself with a fillet knife, apparently after having an urge to offend again, according to a police report.
    The 59-year-old man removed one of his testicles Sunday night and flushed it down the toilet. The other testicle was severely injured.
    The man, who was not identified in the police report, called a friend for help and police and paramedics found him bleeding profusely when they arrived. Police said he was expected to survive.
    The man told police he was feeling the urge to touch and hurt children, the (Springfield) State Journal-Register reported Tuesday, and wasn't trying to kill himself but was trying to stop that urge. more at link

    That's why I feel a little sorry for them. They're sick. They're a type of sick we can't allow to run free - but they didn't choose it. They do choose how to respond to it though, but sometimes the sickness wins, even if you fight it.

    Except i dont believe anyone is born with this "sickness". They bring it upon themselves, imo.

    I don't believe that - not for all of them, maybe not for most of them. They do choose how they respond to it.

    He's so miserable at the idea of what he might do that he's cutting off his own balls, and you think he chose this?

    How? I think it's their sexual orientation.........I think many were abused as children and identified with their abuser, for them it's a power thing. I think the rest are just wired wrong, that's why they can not be cured.

    There's something kind of heroic about this--credit where credit is due.

    You know what bothers me most about "castration" as a solution for sexual offenders: I hate to sound rude, gross, BUT even without a penis these offenders STILL have fingers and tongues...either of those can ruin a child's life as well, it's not just a penis...not to mention only body parts but "foreign objects" are ALWAYS available...this can hurt a child as badly as a penis any day.
    If someone is an SO won't he get off in ANY way possible? He doesn't have to have a penis to derive sexual pleasure....ugh....sick....

    Just like you brought your heterosexuality on yourself!?

    There but for the grace of God. What a sad sad state of affairs it must be to have to mutilate your genitals because of your sexual drives. How much you must loathe yourself. Heartbreaking.

    Medical castration would be available to him, I should think, but I imagine he hates himself so much he feels like he deserves this.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    then perhaps he should have gone for free counseling- I am sure this was not his FIRST episode, and knew the system- he was more than likely aware of help available- even if it was medical castration-

    It's not sad to me, but then I am an abuse victim....and even though I was I'm not out there sexually abusing kids and the thought of it makes me sick beyond belief.
