Sex offenders could be forced to have hormone injections under radical plans to tackle crime being considered by Downing Street.

Strategists think the injections - effectively the "chemical castration" of sexual predators to suppress their urges - would help prevent attacks.

The controversial proposal is one of a number being looked at by Tony Blair's strategy unit as part of the Prime Minister's policy review.

Other ideas include installing microchips in the mentally ill to monitor their behaviour and sending text messages to parents to warn them a paedophile is at large in their area.

One document, entitled Crime, Justice And Cohesion, says there will have to be "trade-offs" between liberty and security as technology and profiling are used to tackle crime.

Face and voice recognition, a DNA database, identity cards and satellite surveillance are all mentioned.

The paper also highlights how sex offenders in Denmark are given hormone injections, Switzerland prescribes heroin rather than the substitute methadone to addicts and prisoners in Texas are forced to wear pink T-shirts.

We already do that in america, in some states.

What i think is absurd is paying so much undue attention to sex offenders. Other forms of criminal activity are a much larger problem.

We will always have sex offenders, no matter how much we try to drug them. Many many people are sexually abused somehow in their life time and do not report it. There are millions of sex offenders that are roaming the streets not because of a crappy system, but because no one has turned them in. Another thing is a guy that gets drunk and goes streaking can be made a sex offender. Same as a guy who is 17 and has sex with his 14-year-old girlfriend. Making drastic decisions for all sex offenders is a terrible idea because innocent men and women can be hurt. Not that they aren't already being hurt by being falsely accused of being a sexual offender. But this idea is totally ridicules as a whole. To me it seems like how they used to think that only insane people masturbated and put stuff over their penises so they couldn't do it. If it is made a well known practice, 20 years from now we will be thinking “God we where dumb”.

I know one way to get rid of sex offenders, make sex unoffensive.

Haha yeah. That is something we really really need to do because sex is an important part of human existence and we shouldn't be ashamed of it. But I strongly oppose rape and touching little kids!

Statutory rape however, and pedophilia, can be overly exaggerated, this is why ageism is never a good thing, some of these girls could be charged as an adult if they were working a street corner but because they only did it out of love for someone over the age they are innocent children, double standard much?
