Indeed it was recently found that in England & Wales, the prosecution wasn't even giving the defence evidence that could have been used to clear defendents names, just how disgusting is that, and as a result innocent people went to jail.

I am sorry but innocent people going to prison is never right and rape must be proved beyond any reasonable doubt and based on all the available evidene, like any other crime. As accusations and injustices are unaccptable as is the stigma involved, and wronfully sending people to prison leaved a lasting scar on peoples lives.

One false accusation is one too many and the idea of castrating people on this basis is beyond belief.

Interesting....as with many crimes a few make false allegations...and it sounds like in almost all of THOSE cases they were found out and the accused was cleared.

Regardless, castration is not 100% effective simply because in both men and women, the adrenal glands produce a small amount of testosterone and believe it or not, many eunuchs can have sex...

And they could certainly get testosterone from other sources to boost that from their adrenals so...try again, OP.

Nope, but their sentences should be extremely long allowing them to get out early if they voluntarily get castrated.

That would be okay. There's already way too many people in the world because of people not exercising self control.

In the discussions I've had, it's been "only" 2-10%. That's 6,000 - 30,000 false accusations. That anyone thinks that's insignificant is stumbling. They also seem to think everything just goes back to normal after they're cleared, after having been expelled from school, lost their jobs and their standing in the community.

Apparently, you can't get justice for real victims without sacrificing thousands of good men.
