Every day the evidence grows that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is a strong leader. Right after the Supreme Court declared death too harsh for child rapists, Governor Jindal signed a law imposing chemical castration as a punishment.
They get a choice: physical or chemical. Oh, and they don’t just get castrated and leave - they still have to serve out their sentence.
Gov. Jindal made it absolutely clear that signing this bill today was about more than just sending a no-tolerance message across his state: “I want to send the message loud and clear – to the Supreme Court of the United States and beyond – make no mistake about it, if anyone wants to molest children and commit sexual assaults on kids they should not do so here in Louisiana. Here, we will do everything in our power to protect our children and we will not rest until justice is won and we have fully punished those who harm them.”
Love him or hate him, you've got to respect his courage.
