Cleveland’s Castro brothers ignore taunts during first night in jail

The nasty taunts of fellow inmates didn’t stop the Castro brothers from sleeping like babies.

The notorious siblings suspected of holding three young women hostage for a decade in a Cleveland home were housed Wednesday in separate cells — where they brushed off jailhouse insults.

“They seem relaxed,” said a guard at the Central Prison Unit at the Cleveland Police Headquarters. “Mostly they’ve just been sleeping with their heads under the pillows like they don’t want to be bothered.”

A fellow inmate said Ariel Castro, 52, owner of the house where the women were held in chains and ropes, was the target of vitriol from other prisoners.

“They were screaming at him all night,” said the 20-year-old ex-prisoner after his release. “He was just laying there, taking it. They were saying, ‘Don’t feed that rapist! He doesn't deserve any respect!’”

The death penalty isn’t harsh enough for these monsters.

Part of it is a frustration with a system that takes years for death row inmates to get executed, if ever.

They had ought to be worried about getting the Jeffrey Dahmer treatment. If the state is smart about it, they are going to keep these guys far, far away from the other inmates.

Budget cuts - that might not be feasible, not that I mind. Generally, I think we have a moral responsibility to keep prisoners safe behind bars, but when the laws don't allow for an appropriate penalty, I'm okay with ordinary decent criminals solving the problem for society.

It is frustrating but the answer is to fight for the death penality, not torture people.

I have no trouble executing the Castros by flamethrower.
After a fair trial, of course...... we are not savages.

A flamethrower execution is civilized---a humane
punishment for years of savagery inflicted on three girls.

The Cleveland police are beneath contempt---going to the horror house---walking away---then conveniently "losing" the call records to cover their incompetent ***es.

Worst of all was the Asst prosecutor---the audacity to subvert justice to pump his heinous ethnic solidarity agenda. ....

The Asst prosecutor used the press conference to proselytize---to announce he, too, was a Puerto Rican (like the monstrous Castro family).

The barely literate imbecile actually insisted we should not paint all latinos as criminal.

The dumbo failed to realize HE was the problem-- forcing on the public his ethnic solidarity poison at a time when the nation hungered for justice for these horrific crimes.

The guy infected the discourse on justice for three brutalized girls. They should show him to the door and kick him out.

Probably Castro got away with his brutality for so long b/c of ethnic solidarity.
