Roberto Calderoli, Italian minister for legislative compliance, demands chemical castration for the four Romanians accused of raping an Italian woman near Rome last week. He declared for Corriere della Sera that this measure was the only measure of defense against those who are unable to control their instincts.

The idea was supported by former Parliamentarian Maurizio Ronconi who proposed the same measure for those molesting children. Citizens in Guidonia went on the streets to do their own justice but the four were protected by the police.
