yeah I hear that, Ive read about it too.
so, if Stockholm was present why the urgent mad dash to freedom screaming for help from passerby's 10yrs later and not before? or why did it apparently just change?

did every single person in the house suffer from Stockholm? there were multiple people...



I haven't read the rest of the quotes, but as a Militant and extremely non apologetic women's rights advocate, I'd like to Correct a few uh, Pornified misogynist MYTHS if I may,

One, as thus far (and I am not read up on the entire case yet) we do not know IF the alleged murdered or tortured any other female, male or Child in Front of these victims, if so, That alone would be enough to assure the alleged had complete control. It's not hard to do unfortunately and the BDSM PORN abuse INDUSTRY literally SELLS manuals to assholes instructing them HOW to brainwash and destroy a female or child to a point where they will themselves offer themselves up as slaves. yes it's sick, Worse, is that these manuals, one in particular that I know of, is sold as a type of Behavior Mod that has police techniques. How do I know this, I'm Militant anti-porn and anti-trafficking and in research for writing I come across this sick garbage. Which is Whi yes I do have the Hate issues and disgust with Numerous patriarchal stupid women who Cater to this garbage...both religious and liberal, what we term as "fun feminists". (I prefer the term Judas Bimbos) and no, I'm NOT nice about this NOR do I care what Men or women think...Talk to Victims with LIFETIME of SEVERE damage and sympathy runs out real fast. You develop Zero Tolerance, unless one is a Psychopath who hates women and there are PLENTY of Them out there...

So, yes until we know all the facts, it's not shocking the extremes these B)&$$& will go to to enslave and destroy for their own power dominance violent sickness. And yes there can be women who assist...horrific as that may be for some to believe, it happens. The Psychological damage and shame, self blame, FEAR and paralyzing horror as well as identifying with the Captor is yes real, and doesn't end just because they are rescued or escaped, it can take Years and well does. A good case research to understand this horror is testimonies of captive slaves, such as one young woman who was rescued in UK, was a slave (Sudanese) to a Muslim and sold, bartered, etc (she too was Muslim, African, her captor Arabic and yes it was also a Racist thing) and even after she was rescued it too her years to undo the brainwashing and dependency learned as a slave. She was a domestic slave (there was sexual assault and horrific physical abuse) but imagine sexual torture and a forced childbirth? We don't know if the alleged threatened the child/children or tortured them too...as a means of more terror and control. Like Domestic Viole ce when there are Children who are in danger, victims Will appease to lesson the threat to others, in ways outsiders wouldn't understand...this is how the power/control violence dynamic works.

Several said here this couldn't be possible because there was more than one, Actually it could be MORE possible because of group think terror, meaning, threatening harm to one IF the others don't comply then the others will feel responsible...etc., like they do with POWs in WAR. The BDSM manuals believe it or not are also the same techniques and methodologies used in Militarization and terrorizing POWs, etc., psychiatry etc., brainwashing, same thing in CULTS. It's one thing to only have yourself to be responsible for...quite another when Other victims, whom you would identify with, feeling responsible for if they are harmed or killed because you disobeyed the captor/torturer, etc.

I mention my advocacy and life experience here, not to toot horn, ok, I work in solidarity with Numerous women, some who are Survivors of far worse than I've gone through....it's part of MY therapy, actually but also an obsession because having endured cult abuse, I have a real hate and obsession for JUSTICE against these jerks, and the CULTURE that ENABLES and REWARDS this crap. I didn't work on all the issues because of triggers, etc but I know those who do...and a lot I learn from them as well and want to include that here as without them and their work, life experience I couldn't even discuss this...and often even now, after Years, I'll get triggered and full of rage and have to step away from the advocacy...but my point is, there are SO many Lies and MYTHS and just crap, that is spewed and enabled and it just peeves me and others who know the REALITY to no end, YES these HUMAN RIGHT ABUSES AND CRIMES happen to women and children and boys, ALL the Time, so it's not some unthinkable thing. What's unthinkable, is the deniers, enablers, rape apologetics culture.

Cont...as for the manuals, when I wrote several advocacy essays against the BDSM culture infiltrating several sub cultures, is how I found out about the so called manual, which is a BOOK by the way written by some asshole with a police background. It's apparently a top seller...which is why the whole Fifty Shades of KaKa just boils my blood, I expect it from men, its when I see stupid women pandering to this FILFTH and when you TELL, no forget tell, SHOW them, even when they hear first person Testimony from SURVIVORS and these women just scoff it off as this, "well that was you but I'm invisible crap" or this "but it's so empowering to be raped and enslaved garbage" and Yes there are minds out there like that who DO NOT CARE who gets destroyed,

A lot of its Money, big EVIL business, some of its a power trip, a sick one at that...some of it is fear because they are so entrenched in this world they Kniw if they speak out or try to escape their ABUSERS will kill them...so they deny and lie, to themselves,

And in a PATRIARCHAL Culture where misogyny and demonizing females is NORMALIZED breaking free for the COLONIZED MIND is much more difficult. So, multiply that a thousand times to extreme Ritual TRAUMA, and what That dies to the human psyche,

Yes females are Human, I know that comes as a shock to many, who think all females are are dick socks, but yes, they bleed red just like any male. And like POWs are Traumatized in a war zone, being taken Captive by kidnapping, COERCION, Violence, etc., is the same Trauma with the same Effects of long term, permanent psychological damage. Those women, victims are not IN some Normal relationship, they are bound in a captive HOSTAGE situation, with severe Trauma inducing terror, so NO they aren't going to just one day pick up and leave...INTIMATE VIOLENCE does not work that way.

Several say they are Free, WRONG, they are only Physically free...now comes the long hard and PAINFUL work ahead, IF they can survive THAT...and it won't ever be over for them. This is why our laws of PUNISHMENT for Crimes, violent crimes against females and children MUST be Changed, not excused, not tolerated, not felt sorry for, not explained away, not NORMALIZED, etc. and Women must face that these horrors, NO FEMALE is safe from, and why there needs to be serious change, across the board. What's absolutely deplorable is these crimes are increasing, in their sadism as well as the social normalizing them and even embracing them (like some movies, that applaud sadism and child sexual abuse, etc)., and what Really angers me, is seeing Women applaud this evil...I do think it is a lot of Class and Race (class, race or both combined) Hiearchies that are to blame as well...entitlement and Supremacy beliefs, etc., have a lot to do with this violent NecroPhallic culture (Mary Daly),

There is a lot of attribution to insulate from the reality of, victim blaming, etc., and it's fueling the sadist cults and we are seeing an increase...not just in crimes of this sort but a sick perverted celebration of these things in entertainment, etc. But some of the Myths, is that oh well they free now they'll be fine, NO, they WON'T be fine. Parts of their soul are MURDERED and THAT'S what people need to get, you Don't traumatized a HUMAN like that and not MURDER their SOUL. They'll struggle with PTSD, DID more than likely, and a host of other anxiety and other mental AND physical illness that are life long.

If the alleged are guilty, in my strong UN apologetic opinion, they should be tried for murder, psychological murder as well as the rest. Maybe when People see how permanent These crimes are, they'll maybe, but I doubt it, form some kind of semblance of a Conscience and begin to feel empathy and demand the Culture of Misogyny and Violence, is destroyed and all the tentacles that support and prop it up. I'm dedicating this, to R Mott, a voice in the wilderness, who has lived through the hell...

Maybe these guys knew these girls and knew that they were going down the wrong path and decided to teach them a lesson, its just like when you were a kid and you got caught smoking, they just made these girls smoke the whole pack is all..

OK seriously I've had my fun with this. Yes im sick whatever. But in all reality, one time the people who lived across the street from me were arrested for kidnapping a 15 year old girl and keeping her tied up for a week and letting all the people who bought meth from them have at her (I was like 13 when this happened). So no I don't believe these girls wanted this, and I do find it severely screwed up that people have to go through such things.

Bundy is just my nickname, Bundy Hussein is what alotta people actually call me. I left the Hussein part off on this site to avoid any muslim connection, since im not of Islamic faith. Bundy for King Kong Bundy cuz im a giant white guy and Hussein because... Above top secret.

Have something for you...another MYTH, that torture, violent crimes, sadism only effects the victim, WRONG...it has dire negative impact on the perpetrator as well as witnesses, complicit and indirect. (why soldiers trained in torture are just as messed up if not more than the victim, in junta schools, etc and the negative impacts are GENERATIONAL) . Sister Diana Ortiz, torture/hostage victim in Guatamala, wrote,

“On my bad days, I still say I should have died back in that prison, before I had to be used to inflict pain, because I had to make a choice about another human being’s life or death. I still wish I had died. … But no one ever fully recovers -- not the one who is tortured, and not the one who tortures. Every time he tortures, the torturer reinforces the idea that we cannot trust one another, and that we cannot trust the world we live in.”

It's the same for those who witness Trauma...I recommend a link, for you. sites.google.com...

More about her and her testimony, but I wanted to leave that with you, based on what you shared. I remembered that quote of hers and felt compelled to post it.

You do realize that by peddling your bigoted myths you are causing serious harm to the plight of trafficked and enslaved people right? Sickos like this have always existed, the enslavement of men and women, and most disgustingly of children, has been something that has been going on for as long as there where societies.

Heck, in some Native America cultures, a mother would often keep her most handsome son inside doing only "women work", and when he reached older childhood he would have the more masculine hairs permanently plucked. When the poor young person reached a certain age, he was to be sold to a rich permanent bachelor(homosexual).

The whole nonsense of a Western Patriarchy is so utterly absurd that it is laughable. Your ignorant nonsense fails every historical test of who is the oppressor and who is the oppressed.

The economic test: Feminists(female supremacists) like to claim that women where impoverished and kept from working.

First part is patently false. It is like trying to claim that the Southern slaves where richer then the slave owners because they picked the cotton. If you look at where the money went and to whose benefit, it is clear that the majority of the West's commercial output and trade was more so to the benefit of the average woman then the average man.

And what factor kept women from working or having wages? Who was responsible for the whole sale discrimination of women in the work place? Women.

They were called the Mothers of the Republic, women who at the dawn of the American industrial age, fought for the right to be stay at home moms. The "Patriarchy" of the 1950's was the culmination of their life's work.

Political Test:

To whom do elected official's pander? The average man or the average woman? To whom does the nepotism of the political class benefit, the average man or the average woman? Who got most of the stimulus money?
www.weeklystandard.com...

The Legal Test:

In the legal test, the more socially "superior" class is often not punished for crimes as severely as the socially "inferior" class. This test has often been repeated when feminists talk about ancient civilizations and even some Islamic and other similarly developed nations/cultures.

So in our Country, heck in the entirety of the West, for the same crime and the same criminal record, who gets more time and who get's less? And how does society treat crime committed by one gender against the other?
Lastly, how does society tolerate the abuse of one gender or the other?

www.studymode.com...
news.google.com...,718377
www.huffingtonpost.com...

www.ejfi.org...

As you can see from the links and cursory examination, that my questions above were mostly rhetorical in nature as it is forgone conclusion that women often get away with many crimes against men . Like the case of an 11 year old boy who was stripped naked, sexually molested, held against his will, while the three teenage girls video taped the incident and distributed it via youtube. According to the law, the state has a MANDATED responsibility to prosecute.

But because the mother didn't want to press charges, no charges where filed. I don't care what anyone say's, sexual crimes against teenagers, young adults, adults and the elderly is horrible, but sexual crimes against children is much, much worse.

You accuse society of not viewing women as human beings? I say that is pure projection, as you yourself do not view women as human beings as you refuse to allow individual human beings to take responsibility for their actions you disprove of because of their gender. On-top of that, your narrow view of things only reinforces and encourages America's real rape culture, as America and most Americans(right-left) love it when grown men are raped in jail, or little boy's are raped by older women.

Look at your claim of in depth knowledge of BDSM and look at all the things you talked about being so horrible. That means either a) you support the elements of BDSM you didn't talk about or b) your not the expert you think you are.

When will feminists learn, that when you dehumanize males(boy's-young men and men) you also dehumanize females(girls-young women and women) as well? The young generation that is still of childhood and teenage years is taking the message that feminists have crafted for 30+ years to heart; the message that boy's, young men and men aren't human beings, and applying it in a gender neutral fashion.

I don't know if I should vomit, or congratulate them on being far better human beings then the previous generations that walked this Earth.

Charles Ramsey is ripping the 911 operator on CNN. Said he called them an idiot because they kept questioning her, even though she was panicking,


From what I heard of the 9/11 operator, I can't really fault her for much besides saying when the first squad car opens up, they'll send it. Rechecking the caller's facts and trying to get as much info as possible is appropriate, so that the police can take the appropriate actions, and resources aren't squandered on false reports.

Sometimes people make crank 9/11 calls, so the 9/11 folks need to do their best to ascertain if the call is legit or not. In Portland, OR, there was just a case of a teenage girl who was supposedly abducted from a park, which made the news and caused a large police search for her, and then a day or two later she came forward and said it was a hoax. She is now being prosecuted for this.

Charles Ramsey rocks in any case. He ought to consider running for mayor or police commissioner. Hell, he could eat any cable pundit's lunch as well. He tells it like it is.


Also, as a follow-up to my prior post criticizing the Cleveland police for their lack of investigation of prior calls concerning this house, by neighbors, I have heard some reports that the neighbors never actually reported to the police the things they saw. This could be establishment spin, of course. We'll have to wait a few days, at least, to get the last word on this.

But in related matters, it now sounds like the Boston/Cambridge transit cop that was killed supposedly by the bombers was actually killed in cross-fire by trigger-happy members of Beantown's finest.

Also, some robber suspect, in hand cuffs and without shoes, managed to escape a police car and possibly run into a subway station, causing the authorities to shut down four subways for 5 hours until the caught the guy. Guess this is the new way the fuzz will be handling all loose suspects -- shutting town down until they get their man. Good times.

They can hold you in jail for two years just to question you? Those three women weren't the only victims in this case, apparently.


You're misunderstanding the sentence. The disappearance was in 2004. On can assume the two guys were arrested later, likely in 2006. I'd imagine their house would have been searched soon after their arrest. This would be true unless they had no lawyer or a very terrible lawyer who never heard of habeus corpus.

About the 911 operator and how law enforcement and the system abuse victims further.

Amanda was ecstatic, giddy and confused telling the operator I'm Amanda Berry and I've was kidnapped and they've been searching for me for ten years. The operator responds sarcastically "We already know who you are" . . Then the operator starts demanding answers like what Ariel Castro wearing and Amanda was stunned by the realization she's dealing with a careless robot and said you mean right now, I don't know, as her voice cowers fearfully.

The truth was she gave them the name of the guy, his home address and it wasn't important at all what he was wearing at that moment. What was important is taking care of the victim, not extracting information out of her that was less relevant than saving her and kindly reassuring that she'll be taken car of.

Here you have a woman who was severely victimized and LE first response is to continue that victimization in her first contact with them over the phone.

Now it is coming out that Neighbors called police about a naked woman ordered to crawl on her hands and knees into the house two years prior were ignored. It could of ended two years ago.

Nine years ago police went to the house after a child was left on the bus, but when there was no answer they never followed up again. It could of ended nine years ago.

When can we start firing inept public servants hiding behind their unions? When can 911 operators learn to both take information and treat those they deal with respectfully instead of being trained to act like uncaring ridged pricks?

I'm speculating on potentialities surrounding this odd case- bottom line is no one knows anything about her situation and it seems about as strange as everything else going on in the world these days; can you blame me for coming up with such a not so bizarre theory? I thought it sounded interesting and stimulating on paper. Implying I'm somehow condoning the kidnappng of innocent women is a strange reaction to me but not when considering the bleeding hearts gravitating to this anomaly of a story.


You're REALLY trying to defend your first, ridiculous "supposition"? Seriously? Yes, we can blame you for coming up with such a bizarre, misogynistic theory. Consider yourself to be considered with considerable content by most who read your lesbian-tryst speculation post.

Guess all the US soldiers in POW camps in various wars intentionally got themselves captured to avoid fighting and to get in on some large-scale homosexual orgies. By your reasoning, this would be the obvious explanation anyway.

Given that there have been several, big-news stories with similar abduction and/or false imprisonment cases, which only involved one male perpetrator, and here we apparently have three adult males involved, it is not at all surprising/unimaginable that this could have happened -- particularly given the Cleveland police's apparent lack of follow-through on investigating suspicious reports by neighbors.

I only hope that those individuals are able to make some kind of recovery. No one deserves to go through that type of horrible ordeal. Sometimes I wonder about people who harass obvious victims, why do stuff like that?. In some cases there are false allegations or a miss-perception of events that only leaves emotional ruin, but one would have to be without thought to think that is so in this case.

Every-time I go to Walmart's customer care center for something, It breaks my heart to see the missing children/person posters. The sheer number of people who go missing in our country is truly terrifying and saddening.

I wish I could say there is a lesson to learn in this, but all we can do is lend our thoughts and prayers to the victims and wish them a speedy recovery.

There will be more arrests in this case, guaranteed. There were babies born and miscarriages. Someone with access to medical supplies most likely supplied them with the items needed.

I'm guessing the person worked at Metrohealth Medical Center.

hmm, after reading all the replies about he 911 operator i searched for the call and have listened to it. Not what i expected at all, all sounds pretty normal to me.

The operator sounds very level headed and not rude or insensitive at all. They probably have to deal with a lot of hoaxes and have to keep a level head, He seemed to do his job just fine IMO.

What do people expect from the operator...."OMG YOUR ALIVE OMG WAIT THERE ILL SEND A CAR OVER RIGHT AWAY OMGOMG!!!"

or

exactly the professional way it was done..think about it.

This story just keeps getting more and more bizarre.

Most of you already know about the article that Castro's son wrote about the disappearance of Gina in 2004 and it's effects on the neighborhood from which she went missing. An in depth report about that article can be found here:

Son of kidnapping suspect had reported on three missing women and interviewed DeJesus' mother in 2004

It is now being reported that one of Castro's daughters, Emily Castro, was convicted in 2008 for trying to kill her 11 month old as well as herself. She is currently in jail in Indiana.

Cleveland kidnapping: Suspect Ariel Castro’s daughter in prison for slashing her baby’s throat


Little Janyla survived the attack and made a full recovery, the local Journal Gazette newspaper reported.

During the trial in Allen Superior Court, defense attorneys argued Castro suffered from manic depression and was paranoid that her family was trying to kill her baby.


If that isn't strange enough for you, It is now coming to light that another of Castro's daughters was Gina's best friend and actually was interviewed on the TV show America's Most Wanted during a segment highlighting Gina's disappearance. In it, she says she was the last to see Gina alive. Fox aired the segment last night and were trying to find out where the interview had taken place, if it was in fact in the very house Gina was being held in.

Arlene Castro, Daughter Of Ohio Kidnapping Suspect, Says She Was Last To See Gina DeJesus




This last link is from the DailyMail and it goes more in depth with interviewing the son who had written the report years ago . In it, he talks about the family dynamic and how his father had different doors padlocked and no one was allowed into certain areas of the house. He also talks about his mother leaving his father due to the abuse she and the kids suffered during her marriage to Ariel. Some of the more interesting points made in the article are:


The son of Ariel Castro says it is conceivable that his father targeted his youngest kidnapping victim because she was a close friend of his daughter.



It was also revealed on Tuesday that Ariel Castro had attended vigils to pray for the safe return of the three missing women including his daughter's best friend.



In mid-April, he says, his father asked him whether he thought police would ever find Amanda Berry, who escaped the Cleveland home on Monday afternoon. When Anthony said he thought Berry was likely dead because she had been missing so long, Ariel responded: 'Really? You think so?'At that time, according to police, Berry was locked in the basement of his father's home.'The house was always locked,' remembered Anthony, who appeared visibly tired but reacted with poise throughout the interview. 'There were places we could never go. There were locks on the basement. Locks on the attic. Locks on the garage.'



The Castros' close links to the long-running investigation have also emerged. Pedro Castro told a TV crew last July that a police forensic excavation being conducted in the neighborhood for Berry's body was 'a waste of time'.


Daily Mail

The article goes on to describe reports from neighbors who had called the police about the strange things happening around that house. One report was from a woman who had witnessed the 3 girls naked and crawling in the back yard while being held on leashes by the 3 men.

Police really failed these poor girls. They could have been found years ago
Hopefully with all the love and support they can move on with their lives and find happiness.

There is much that you say that I agree with in terms of what occurs in the situations and how the toll on the brain is exacted. Whereas I, too, find BDSM literature, porn and creation of "slaves" to be wholly distasteful on a very deep level, I do not find it to be the root of why men do these things. That particular industry exists because there are people whose development have been twisted already. There's a huge difference between a BDSM relationship and actual imprisonment. The source of it is, ultimately, developmental, and not acquired. The Stanford Prison Experiment, in all its shocking nature, showed us that we all have the potential capacity to become abusive in a situation where we hold absolute power over another individual. Those who do such things don't need a manual to engage in such an activity as they can see the effects of their words on the individual in a sort of feedback loop. Like I said, while I find the BDSM industry to be wholly repugnant and playing with dangerous fire, I simply do not see it as the source but a symptom of an issue.

There are some people who develop in such a way as to form a very controlling personality. Manipulation is something that they practice from childhood on. i think it may be a toxic combination of perhaps being sexually abused as a youth and having a pathologically controlling parent based on my own experience. This kind of thing can occur even in those reared in a matriarchal society. There is an unreported case of false imprisonment accompanied with sexual abuse that occurred on the Navajo reservation. These issues do exist out there despite the culture being matriarchal. They just recently developed shelters but it was far too late for some women. www.navajo-nsn.gov... pdf
That said, I do agree that the BDSM industry is as repulsive as sex trafficking. The key difference between the BDSM participants and those involved in false imprisonment/kidnapping/sexual abuse is the former is entered into consensually and has community "rules" in terms of harm and the other is non-consensual and without rules. Like I said though, regardless of the community based rules, I find the practice to be utterly disturbing at the deepest level and find it capable of acting as a "cover" for abuse. So I'm with you on that point I just disagree as to what drives this sort of thing to occur.

*One last note--I agree with the above poster that it is dangerous to point a finger at the wrong sources because it detracts from the actual sources of the issue--the cycle of abuse. BDSM is a symptom of a problem--not the source.
