Hitting Sex Criminals Where it Hurts

Maori activist Titewhai Harawira has recommended a traditional Maori punishment for sex criminals to ensure that they don’t re-offend: Her solution: tying flax around the offender’s penis and pulling until the penis drops off. “I’m sick of all this liberal rubbish … we should go back to what they did in the old days.” Dismissing caution that the action may be inhumane she said it would be a “powerful deterrent.”
