Sadly, I don't believe castration will prevent a rapist from assaulting another woman. There may be individuals who are amenable to "re-education" but I have little confidence in that path. Rape is not about sex. It's about power and punishment. A eunuch is still capable of horrendously violating his victim. I would prefer to see these beasts locked away from society (sorry I can't go with the death penalty in most cases). I'm sure the experience of having his front teeth knocked out and becoming "Big Bubba's" ***** for the rest of his life would be much more educational.
The punishment should fit the crime.<br />
An eye for an eye.<br />
Inside Jail has its own justice, I think there is still honour amongst criminals. There are a lot of inmates who hate rapist. Just don't give the rapists protection inside jail.<br />
Just let them go and the rest will make the rapist life hell.<br />
I was inside myself a long time ago for a few days because I didn't pay traffic fines and I was the one separated from the hard core and I have seen their own justice dished out to rapist.<br />
While I was inside I had the dishonour of having my dinner served to me from one of a group that packed raped and murdered a woman in perhaps the worst of its kind in Australia.<br />
If there are any Aussies reading this. This name will need no introduction. Her name was Anita Cobby.<br />
The rest of the inmates made very sure his life is hell for the rest of his life. His hand was put into the deep fryer. What are they doing to him and the rest now.

Have done to them, What they did to their victim. Only ten times over. If it's with a kid then I say it's time to cut something off...
Prisons too good<br />
Shoot him in the box section and then dump him in the desert to dry up.
My first thought is castration. However, as another has pointed out, rape is about power and control issues, not sexual ones.<br />
Rehabilitation is possible, but highly unlikely within prison walls as it's a festering place of negativity and violence. As a 'payback' type of punishment it does fit the bill though.
Death if you could proove 100% that they did it.
Some kind of medication which would mean he could never get an erection again ... and therefore never have sex, but still desire it mentally.
Being a survivor i have gone over every scenario in my mind . The question is would the punishment be enough to change the vile person who thinks raping someone is a good idea . Then you need to change the laws and the people who are supposed to enforce them as well as society. People form an opinion about rape victims quickly and not usually good ones , that is wrong on so many levels .
I agree with the majority's decision, the amount of time suggested by any given legal jurisdiction. On average in the United States, it's traditionally been a little over 7 years in prison for first-time felons. The circumstances vary greatly case to case which would affect the sentencing.
