This is a great idea. Human beings are animals too. We sometimes forget that we are animals and think that we can solve all our problems through persuasion or conditioning. But I have long thought that some people should not be parents. They are too stupid, violent or just incapable of being parents. Sure they can be the mother and father, but they can’t parents. This is something that is often forgotten. Its easy to make a baby. Very easy, and usually fun, unless you are too drunk to remember it, or the chick was a bad lay. And the bad lay part is more common that most people think. Still I think that people should stop being so selfish and realize that they don’t need 9 kids anymore. 2 is enough. Not 8.
S.C. Councilman: Sterilize Bad Parents
CHARLESTON, S.C. — A City Council member, reacting to a video store holdup believed to have been carried out by children, says parents who can’t properly care for their kids should be sterilized.
“We pick up stray animals and spay them,” Larry Shirley said in a story published Saturday by The Post and Courier of Charleston. “These mothers need to be spayed if they can’t take care of theirs. Once they have a child and it’s running the street, to let them continue to have children is totally unacceptable.”
Shirley’s comments come after police say a video store was held up by a group of children, including a 14-year-old girl suspected of wielding a BB gun that looked like a pistol.
The holdup happened about 9 p.m. Wednesday at a Hollywood Video store. A 14-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy were charged as juveniles with armed robbery. A 9-year-old boy was not charged because police said he was too young. He was released to his mother.
“What we’ve got is a failure in society, whether it’s in Mount Pleasant with yuppie parents or whether it’s on the East Side with poor crackhead parents,” he said, referring to areas in and around Charleston.
State Sen. Robert Ford, a Charleston Democrat, agreed that the crime highlights a societal problem but dismissed Shirley’s suggestion to sterilize people as “crazy.”
“What Larry Shirley needs to talk about is getting City Council to provide some recreational facilities and activities for these kids and creating an atmosphere conducive to a normal society,” said Ford, also a former councilman
