A confessed rapist, Bobby James Allen, was sentenced to 25 years in prison, days after he voluntarily underwent castration as part of a plea deal to avoid life in prison. For a mere $2000 a castration of a sex offender could aide in keeping our streets safer. Bobby James Allen was known 1999 as the “Ninja Rapist,” and he had a “signature” style to his crimes as he usually dressed in black, wore a mask and was armed with a knife. Voluntarily huh? OK, who thinks that maybe this should be the punishment for repeat rapists and child sex offenders? Take the “voluntary” part out of the mix and we will see just how many crimes occur and the lack of repetition.
