Sex-Offending Teacher Asks to be Castrated - CT

WILLIMANTIC, CT ( KTLA) -- A school teacher from a Willimantic magnet school was given 13 years in prison after being caught having repeated sexual encounters with a 15-year-old student.

Adam Friedman, 46, of Newington, received his sentence Thursday after pleading guilty to second-degree sexual assault, risk of injury to a minor, possession of child pornography and violation of conditions of release.

Friedman has been in prison since 2009 after he violated a court order to break all contact with the girl after he was first arrested.

Friedman was an instructor at the Arts at the Capitol Theater magnet school in Willimantic when he was arrested in December 2008.

Prosecutors say Friedman had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl between July and November 2008.

The assaults took place at motels in Columbia and Manchester, and at the girl's grandparents' home in Hebron.

At his formal sentencing Thursday, Friedman asked Judge Elliot Solomon to allow him to be castrated instead of going to prison.

According to Friedman, "prison is killing me."

The sentence should be carried out quickly: “Chop, chop”

Frankly, I’d like to be able to consider that option. There are already transgenders who have themselves mutilated. There would appear to be armies of men in this country who just cannot control themselves, and voluntary surgery might be an option. Men are so hard-wired for mating with those younger than they are that maybe they should cut off the hand that offends them, or whatever offends them. Eunuchs are cheaper than incarceration.

Castration should be standard procedure for child molesters.
Chop it off with a hammer.

Contrary to popular belief, castration does not reduce the sex drive of someone or even an animal after it has experienced sex over a period of time as the natural urge has already been cultivated.Cattle, dogs, sheep and hogs will still try to hump if they were not clipped at an early age. Castration of a human being does not mean the urge is not present nor will it neccesarily stop a sexual predator.

Pervs don’t need anatomical “equipment” to rape someone because the desire still exists, as does the tendency toward violence. A frontal lobotomy might do the trick, or permanent chemical “castration” to alter the thinking process.

Personally, for perverts I think a daily meaningful relationship with a cattle prod might make someone have a come-to-Jesus moment to consider right and wrong.

Men are so hard-wired for mating with those younger than they are that maybe they should cut off the hand that offends them, or whatever offends them. Eunuchs are cheaper than incarceration.

Transgender women take testosterone blockers and get bilateral orchiectomies because they feel that the testosterone is poisoning them and they don't care to use their male sexual organs as a man does, preferring instead to get the testes removed to look and feel more like a woman than a man.

I can tell you that even after being castrated it is still possible to fully function sexually as a man by taking shots of testosterone.

So if their mind is evil, castration won't stop them. If the intent is to punish the man and protect other girls from being victimized by him, then he still must be incarcerated to serve his time. Castration is not going to a sufficient deterrent or a sufficient punishment.

Prison is killing him? Well, I'll will bet the girl and the girl's parent's are not too happy either.

Penis amputation along with removing the testes would be the more definite surgical fix. Offer that to him...

He really screwed up. Apparently it is illegal to have molest students of the opposite sex...

There is even a medical procedure for it.

Go to jail, make chemical castration a condition of parole.

“Penis amputation along with removing the testes would be the more definite surgical fix.”

It’s a start, but I’ve heard stories from cop friends who’ve investigated rapes, and a penis and testes aren’t necessary at all. It’s disgusting to hear the things men have raped women and children with. One horrendous incident took place during Oktoberfest... and I’ll let you figure out the “wurst” case scenario.

I suppose that those who are happy with the thought of castration for this man would also go along with the removal of the Clitoris of females who have done the same thing.

Having spent time working with both stallions and geldings, I see a marked difference in behavior. However, I honestly don't know the realities of surgeries for humans, what stage of life they would be effective, etc. I was writing largely out of frustration.

It's just this contagion and contamination of pedophilia!! Is there so much more of it, as it seems to me, or just more awareness?

You know, not to long ago in the history of this country, girls were wed at a very early age, 13-14 years old. That was considered prime child bearing age. Even advertisements of young girls clad in short dresses bending over, not even 50 years ago. Remember the old coppertone ads?Everything is reported now, before it was just hushed up.

I remember a time when little children showed affection towards one another without anyone suggesting that they were gay. I remember the Coppertone baby, and there was no suggestion of sexualizing at the time. We noticed that baby's bottoms were cute in the same way that we noticed that their little toes and fingers were cute. Remember bearskin rugs pictures, an item of hilarity sometimes, but hardly sexual.

I remember powder-puff football, when the guys dressed up as cheerleaders, each trying to out-ugly-woman the next guy. It wasn't considered drag, we didn't even know what drag was, but Bugs Bunny did it all the time to make a fool out of whoever he was trying to make a fool of. Was Geraldine and The Devil Made Me Do It drag, or comedy?

I remember when nobody thought that Sam and Frodo were gay.

Sigh///what a cesspool we live in now!
