The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Well... at least he wanted to stop

Most sexual offenders want the world to buy into a false sense of security when it comes to them having paid for their crime, and thus being "okay" to roam around in society once again. They want us to forget their past crimes, and naively accept that they are "safe". Most of them, but not all of them. There is a small, undisclosed number of offenders out there that are willing to admit that they can not be stopped- at least not if they are out in the free world, where a potential victim is around every corner.

A convicted sex offender tried to castrate himself with a knife after apparently having an urge to offend again.

After the 59-year-old Springfield man severed one of his testicles and flushed it down a toilet, he called a friend for help. Paramedics arrived and treated him for his injuries, and he was rushed to the hospital, the Springfield State Journal-Register reported. Police would not identify the man, but say he is expected to survive.

The urges don't leave... and yet- the courts release hundreds of these predators back onto society every single day. At least this one was willing to admit something that the head shrinks and courts won't.
