Father wants child rapists castrated

Sebastien wants harsh punishments for child abusers
Sebastien wants harsh punishments for child abusers

Cyrus Matthew Sebastien, a father of two from Coulibistrie, has made a call for stiffer penalties, even castration, for men who sexually abuse children.

There have been a number of cases of child sex abuse in the courts lately and the matter has been the center of public discourse in Dominica.

“It is time the authorities take a stand and if any man is found guilty of child molestation the maximum sentence that should be given is 75 years in prison,” Sebastien said while participating in an event against child abuse recently. “And also a part from the 75 years in prison I think they should detach their penises from their bodies….”

He wants equally harsh punishments for women who he said encourage men to abuse their children.

“I remember the Taliban in Afghanistan where such women would have been attached to a horse back and driven along a playing field. This would have been the punishment for the women,” he opined.

The emotional father said most of the time he is brought to tears when he hears of the abuse of minors by grown men.

“It burns my heart when I see what men are doing to children in this world,” he noted.

Sebastien mentioned also that he is very much concerned about, not only his two daughters, but the generation to come.

“I have been hearing and noticing what is happening, the evil that is happening to children, they are being molested, they are offered ice cream, corn curls, ice pop and then and some of the men do wrong to them,” he stated.

He described himself as “a real man.”

“I can lie down on my back, on my bed, on my pillow, wherever and my children play with me, go on my back, put food in my mouth and I feel good. I don’t feel embarrassed. I feel like a man and I make sure that I deal with my daughters as  children,” Sebastien said.

He said some women and mothers play a role in the abuse of children.

“They take bribes from the men. Men offer them money whether $500, $600 or $1000, men offer them appliances such as stoves, telephones and televisions just to keep their mouths shut,” Sebastien said.

    G. B.

    Thank you for your comments.

    Yes, you and I know that both Christ AND the devil exist. Some pastors shy away from saying anything about the devil that would equip their congregations for spiritual warfare.

    There is a dearth in the land for the hearing of the Word of God. A one sided gospel is being preached that does nothing to prepare people for eternity. There are two roads, two births, two masters, and two destinies.

    There are multitudes of people under the influence of the devil, bound by cords of sins, and blinded by the god of this world. For those who do not know what I am talking about I can only say this. Read your New Testament. Let those who know the truth as it is in Jesus preach the unadulterated gospel that has power to save, deliver, and pull down strongholds.

    The Bible says “To the law and to the testimony. If they speak not according to this Word it is because there is no light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20)

    Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill…

    I do not know your relationship with HIM. But as a child of HIS.I’m told that I wrestle not against flesh and blood but the battle is against principalities,powers,those who rule this dark world and spiritual wickedness in high places.Can you castrate these MR. Sebastien??And their commander-in-chief here’s his resume: he comes but for to kill,to steal and to destroy.In other words what he can’t kill,he will steal and where he can’t kill nor steal he will destroy.
    As I said sometime ago in a comment.The world is a huge stage,we are the actors and actresses.Actors and actresses are coming on and getting off daily.And we act out one of the two,good or evil,and these roles are very broad way beyond our imagination.
    It’just a little food for thought….

    What does the word of GOD say.Anyone who harms a little one should hang a big stone around his neck and go drown himself in the sea.With that said, Mr. Sebastien the guys who are doing the actual raping that your natural eyes can see and your natural ears can hear about is just a small part of the problem.Castrating,putting to death,locking up for I don’t know how long is not going to solve the problem.As a child of GOD I’ll tell you what the problem is.Here we go: The rapist that you’re hearing about or even seeing up close is flesh and blood like you and I.However there are the ones that you can’t see with your natural eyes and those are the ones that you can’t castrate,put them to death or lock them up for I don’t know how long.Only one can deal with them in that capacity and if you,as a natural man would like to have any head way with them you have got to go through that one being.HE is the most high GOD.

    Cut off the offending organ? Hmmmmmmmmmm. That would be sharia law. No! Offenders are sick, sick,, sick and should be rehabilitated. They are pedophiles (like thieves/kleptomaniacs, murderers, drug addicts, etc.). The stiffer sentence (as opposed to the present slap on the wrist) would be a deterrent. After 36 years and the proper rehabilitation, the child molester could be let back into society.

    Stop this garbage about castration. What we need is a legal system that is working. Too many times these sick men are given a slap on the wrist, because the legal system has failed us as an institution.

    This is ridiculous. This goes against any form of human rights. Anyone who can come up with such a suggestion is as bad as the rapist themselves.

      You are the ridiculous one! This man makes a lot of sense. If this is how Justice is served in our country, how will our safety thrive? Men are abusing children and only getting 8 years in jail. When they are released, they are going to do the exact same thing again. Why do you want to put our children in harms way? Thank God someone in Dominica understands what needs to be done. Castration means, you cannot rape again. 75 years in prison is just the amount of time needed behind bars for such gruesome pedophiles. Start looking at things from a parent’s point of view and then speak. You calling this genius a rapist? You sound guilty of something hmm..
      Didnt these children have human rights too? So its okay for their rights to be violated?
      Thats all I’m going to say, now back to drinking my tea.

    Needless to say the problem of sexual child abuse is not limited to Dominica. But DNO goes world wide and is read with appreciation in Canada so once again I will wade in.

    Thank you Mr. Sebastien for adding your voice to the growing number of people on the beautiful nature island who have the courage to stand up and be counted in this battle against what must be the greatest evil of the 21st century. The anger is turning to rage and the lid will soon blow off.

    Nobody has suggested yet that any child molester or rapist has been treated too severely by the court. Instead what we are getting are three suggestions: life in prison, castration, or execution, and in some cases a combination of the first two. Some have said what they would do if any man harmed one of theirs and it is not nice. Not nice but more probable than possible unless your government makes some difficult choices and makes them soon.

    Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. International Evangelist.

      What these men really need is to surrender their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ. If they would repent of their sins and believe in Him as their Savior He would wash them clean by His precious blood and give them a new beginning free from the guilt of the past and the fear of the future.

      Please read John 14:6, Acts 4:12, and John 3:16,17!

      They need to have an encounter with the Savior who can change their lives completely.

      The Bible says ”Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

        Rev.with all my respect as you and i know very well that jesus exist but don’t forget that the devil exists also …it is stated in the bible that the narrow road will have very few people that are chosen and will have every lasting life but the broad road will be full with people but this is the road that will lead to destruction….

    Castration does not solve the problem. It just creates a man with a squeaky voice who no longer has to shave. Urges are still there and the mast will still work. Again, most abusers don’t even use that part of their bodies anyway.

    Furthermore, there is a problem here. Assuming that the castration goes ahead, who would do it? I mean, it would be an intrusive event and obviously would need to be performed by a medical professional, not just an angry person with a pair of bolt-cutters.

    Secondly, when the items are removed, who has possession of them? Surely, they are the property of the castratee who could bring legal action under human rights, property laws (presumably) to have them returned to him as of right.

    Solution – go for the death penalty for child abusers in default of which, the prime minister should be personally charged with removing the offending items from the offender under medical supervision. That would certainly get his popularity back with a snap and double…

      Bolt cutters are archaic and passe.

      Now there’s chemical castration. Many countries throughout Europe have passed laws enforcing chemical castration.

      It’s the Government of Dominica show their testicular fortitude and make legislation for chemical castration.

    • The surgery would be done by a medical professional if possible in a prison hospital, if not in a regular operating room, with armed police guards sanding not far away.

      I do not wish for this extreme punishment but I can understand those who have had a child victimized
      wishing it was an available sentence.

      Many sentences handed down for sexual child abuse in Dominica are far too light especially in view of the fact that pedophiles are rarely “cured”, and frequently re-offend.

      By the way this no laughing matter. :cry: It is nasty business. :twisted: Please don’t make a joke out of it.

      Something more needs to be done and you don’t have many options left.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

    I agree with the castration but not imprisonment. They should be castrated but tax payers money should not be used to feed them. Let them go and work. The mothers, however, should be given jail sentences.

      Why does everything have to bring in the politician. Our little girls lives are being taken from them and you bring in the similarity of that to the corrupted politicians. Your mind seem to be corrupted Maybe it have not hit your home as yet. Wait till it does, you will not even have the time to think of politicians much less for their corruption.

  18. June 4, 2015

    Rapist should be either killed or sentenced to life in prison..because cutting a man’s penis does not prevent him from raping,,where i am living now ,people rape with bottles,sticks,iron,hands,sex toys such as dildos and any other objects that can satisfy their criminal minds,they do it in groups,policians,bbc employees,actors,doctors ,police and nurses are raping kids,kids disappeared after they said they would report it ,,,why wait till they “the rapists ” take it to a higher level ,which might end up one day to a child’s death to make them an a example by life without payrole or death…castration never deter rapist …their are prostitutes in dominica ,if a man really desires to have sexaul intercourse he should go to the protitutes and not destroying children’s lives,the gov’t would have taken serious action concerning these rapist if their children were raped …especially the prime minister he would have sent the police and give order to kill his child’s rapist..This…

        You are a bigger “JACK” the head of state is the prime minister ,he is the one who can decide above all whether a law should be changed because right now dominican’s have no right to demonstrate what they are not happy about…even though you are the chief of police the prime minister can tell you “STOP” and you have to stop,,,any country with a queen and a prime minister the head of state is the queen not the prime minister “jack”live in your nut shell and continue speaking like a “jack” ..
