Your argument is that an offender will only ever have sex if it involves children.The point of chemical castration is that it does not merely hurt one's ability to perform sex, but one's actual libido/sex drive.
I think it is perfectly appropriate to destroy the sex-drive of convicted sexual predators of all stripes, whether they rape adults or children, in order to lessen the harm they have on society. And I would also argue that the ACLU's point is inane. The implied right to privacy does not include the right to retain the ability to rape children. And even if by some warped and over-broad reading of the case law it did, that right can be curtailed through the due process of law upon criminal conviction, just as practically any of our rights can be.
I run the block watch in my neighborhood and we have a sex offender who lives one street down who has to register, and the community is informed.
He attends our meetings with his wife and they have 3 kids.
He was peeing in the tree line of a highway and got ticketed for urinating in public.
He plead guilty and expected to pay a fine at his sentencing.
The sentencing judge who was different than the judge he plead guilty to pushed his crime to a sex offence since children could have seen him.
In the state he was tried in exposing oneself to a child is a Class 3 sex crime or the highest level, equal to raping a child or another person.
I have personally seen his court paperwork and can confirm that he started with urinating in public and it escalated from there.
He can't change his offender classification, he wasn't allowed to rescind his guilty plea and he even has a personal letter from the state trooper stating that he was more than 20 yards off the roadway with his back towards traffic.
His children were born after his trial, he runs a successful business, is a great guy and a good neighbor.
Under the Alabama guidelines he would be castrated as a class 3 offender.
You might say that he would be an exception, but the law would still apply.
