No surprise there! He pleaded guilty to all charges to avoid the death penalty. I'm sure he'll be kept out of gen pop (or else he'd be dead in a day anyway), but he will still have more freedom and a better quality of life than his victims.

HOWEVER, he claimed that the girls asked him for sex and that none of them were virgins when he took them and admitted to having multiple sexual partners. Just a reminder that one of his victims was FOURTEEN when he took her. He even blamed the FBI for not catching him sooner. What a forking dirtbag.

Yeah, I only made it a minute or two in before my blood pressure went through the roof. I think the women he kept have shown amazing grace and strength the few times that they've made public statements.

Yes, I'm glad they don't have to testify or go through a trial.

They all seem so amazing. They looked incredibly resilient and happy in the video they released. They've apparently been given a lot of money from many people and some celebs--I hope they can all be happy and go do whatever the fork they want.

Whew. I'm getting teary thinking about their video. It was nice that they made it -- they need their privacy, but I think we all want to know that they are ok!

Here is the sentencing memorandum. https://www.documentcloud.org/documents ... filed.html

The medical report starts on page 15 and chronicles the effects that 10 years of confinement had on the victims. Its pretty horrible.

I mentioned to Brian that I searched for his name to make sure there wasn't already a thread - it was never brought up when they got free. I think people really don't want to talk about this because it's shiitake that comes right out of a horror movie. We all know that rape, murder, child abuse, etc. exist but it seems like a lot of people don't want to acknowledge that something like this can happen. It's too much to process.

I think its one of those events that you can't have much debate about, and often threads get started because we want to process something with the group. Clearly the women have been through hell and Castro is a monster (despite trying to blame his porn addiction for what he did).

It was just a terrible case and its a scary reminder that there are likely other guys like this out there. And that we live in a rape culture where women are regularly blamed for all the terrible things that happened to them. Like Ariel Castro using his daughter's friendships with the victims to lure them in because he must have seemed like a safe person for them and then calling them sluts.

Apparently a musician near us was keeping his daughters in the house and raping them in the hopes of raising a "pure bloodline" he started raping his daughters when they were 8. He had the babies (some of whom have genetic issues) delivered at home, with no medical care etc. http://gothamist.com/2013/02/26/new_jer ... of_fiv.php http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/1 ... 94530.html

It is terrifying to know that people like that are out there.

Woah, should Amanda Berry's daughter's name and DOB not be redacted from that Sentencing Memo? Someone at the DA's office is getting reamed out today.

Her name and face have been out in the media prior to this. When they first released the picture of them at the hospital they had her face blurred out, but later the unaltered photo was released (I assume because her mom said it was okay).

It's one thing if her mom gives consent for the media to show her face, but a minor's name and birth date should never be released in a public court document, especially if they are the victim of a crime.

When he says that the FBI failed the victims, the expression on the cop's face behind him is priceless.

I had to stop watching the video though. This guy... UGH *!&^%&^

I'm glad they tore it down. I'm not sure what's going to happen to the immediate neighborhood. I'm not pro-death penalty, but when the women first escaped I remember thinking I wouldn't care if Castro was executed, perhaps even be happy if he was. I feel pangs of liberal guilt about that, but where the house stood is one mile from where I live, and I found out that Amanda and I are the same age to the day. I've thought about everything I've experienced in the past ten years and know I wouldn't be myself without those experiences. I really think he robbed those girls of their lives, in a certain sense killed the people they would have been had they not been held captive.

Apparently it was a part of his plea bargain - he had to relinquish the deed to his house. Symbolism aside, nothing good would've come from leaving it standing, it would've just been vandalized and if some idiot tried to set it on fire they'd probably take half the neighborhood with it.

Hopefully they will plant a garden in its place or something similar.

What a coward. I know every prisoner costs tax dollars, but it's really unfair that he kept those women locked up for a decade and he was able to take the easy way out not even a month into his sentence.

I don't know how this is going to sound, probably terrible, but I would rather someone who hurt me was dead. I think if I knew someone was in prison I'd always have a fear that they could somehow escape and hunt me down, so personally I'd be relieved.

Yeah, but still unfair that he was able to make a serious decision about his life, whereas this women were denied that (apart from suicide? I don't remember enough about their conditions to know if that was even an option). Everything about this case sucks, apart from the fact that the women are free.

I don't think there was really a non-coward option for him. He didn't think his victims were victims so I doubt his suicide had anything to do with them, just thinking "I'm forked for life, might as well make it a short one"

Yeah, I guess my feeling is that his absence from the world might help bring closure to the victims, and now the taxpayers are spared the burden of supporting him. And while I can't imagine anyone feeling any particular sympathy for him or sorrow at his passing, I don't think death by hanging/asphyxiation qualifies as an "easy way out."

yeah, with lethal injection, they put you to sleep first, right? that would have been the easiest way out. (but i guess he wanted to die on his terms.)
