It’s time to give Caesar what is owed Caesar

Sharia law, Cajun style: a 78-year-old convicted child molester was castrated as a condition for parole in Louisiana. Because mutilating old men is how they roll down there. His prostate cancer delayed the operation, but finally the judge insisted that “it’s time to give Caesar what Caesar is owed,” which is evidently one wrinkly old penis. “They tell me it’s comparable to having your wisdom teeth pulled,” says Maj. Richie Johnson of the West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office. I’m pretty sure having your wisdom teeth pulled and having your dick, um, pulled are actually in no way comparable, but I’m loathe to argue the subject with someone named Major Johnson.

Update: the CBS story on this begins “Convicted pedophile Francis Tullier, 78, cut his prison sentence in half - and that’s not all”.

The operation (a medically unnecessary procedure for which some doctor needs to lose his license) was performed at the Earl K. Long Medical Center. Which looks like this:

Just saying.
