I’m not actually sure how I feel about the below proposal. One the one hand I’m all for cut their dicks off! Then they can’t stick ‘em where they are not welcomed. However, will that really prevent them from committing sexually violent crimes? No, it won’t... they just won’t be able to use their dicks to commit those crimes if they are cut off. Will this actually protect people from these sexually violent perps.... probably not. What do you think?

Republican Sen. Emmett Hanger's bill would require the state to study the use of physical castration as an alternative to civil commitment for sexually violent predators. A similar proposal was vetoed four years ago.
The civil commitment program's budget grew from $2.7 million in 2004 to $24 million this year. Gov. Bob McDonnell has proposed spending nearly $70 million over the next two years to meet the increasing demands.
Hanger's bill also would require study of the crimes that qualify for commitment, the process and housing options for those who leave the program.
