Truly amazing. Four individuals rescued and the only thing some of you "intellectual living room politicians" (-_-) can focus on is IMMIGRATION??? I'm perplexed, honestly. How do the two even remotely relate??? If that is seriously what you deem most important about this story then please...put down your Prozac and find your way back to the real world where real people, with real souls reside. Idiots.

We had a situation even much worse than this in Northern California.

A business owner named Yusef Bey (he was most famous for his bakery, and although he also owned other businesses), and until a few years ago, had spent many years openly kidnapping teenage girls off the street, and then often holding them as his prisoners for up to seveal years, during which he regularly raped them, had then bear dozens of his children, and also used them as unpaid slave labor in his bakery.

It did not at all go on in secret, and fact the mothers of some of those girls even went around vehemently complaining to all sorts of public officials. However no public official, and including the useless jokers with law licenses in the DA's office, etc, would not do anything about it since Bey had close ties to two members of the county Board of Supervisors, so therefore Bey had carte blanche to do absolutely anything he wanted.

He and his thugs and goons also got the security guard contract at a large building, and there they regularly beat many of the residents, and no one, and including the local Sheriff's office, would do anytbing about it. In other words it was well understood, and including by the Sheriff's office, that Bey was politically connected and politically protected, and therefore untouchable.

And then after many years when a series of newspaper articles did finally came out screaming to the high heavens about Bey's extremely sleazy operation, Bey's two supporters on the county Board of Supervisors, and although they did not even try to deny the facts, still posed in a picture with him to indicate to us members of the general public that they still considered him to be an extremely wonderful person, and who they still still strongly supported, but who just happened to have a few "minor" flaws.

In other words most politicians are so absolutely and totally corrupt, that therefore as long as you give them election campaign contributions and/or large under the table bribes and/or bring large groups of voters to the polls so as to help them win elections, they will not object to absolutely anything you do.

Mr. Obama what are you thinking when you reward people coming into America illegally with citizenship and welfare benefits? The illegal persons do not have a sponser or any support system. They do not have any education and they have nothing to offer America. They come here without an invitation, they want all the benefits that Americans work so hard for and do not respect Americans or America for that matter. They are here illegally yet they protest on American soil demanding to be treated as Americans. They could be picked up during their demonstrations and deported but Obama and his cronies protect them. If all the illegals and other foreigners in America living off American taxpayers were deported American's could get back on track. America would get rid of the filth that these criminals bring with them.

You must use racial slurs so frequently you did not notice the first post or the other one a few post below it. You are the one with the agenda. It's called hate.

Oh,C'Mon!
As long as you can push your Illegal immigration agenda,
Topix moderators are wonderful!......Right?
& I have read every post on this topix, & I can't find "racial slur" Or "Racial innuendo"....Just the facts that the three are ILLEGAL Aliens, & if the Government would do its job & keep out the ILLEGALS, The kidnapings & rapes wouldn't have happened because the ILLEGALS would not have been here!
Nice try though...
How about the ILLEGAL That grabbed a 9yo off her bike in broad open daylight, took her in his apartment & raped her
That was on Americas Most Wanted & in Ohio.. There was a nest of illegals in that neighborhood & they all ran & they didn't catch him but the rest of the neighborhood burned down the house
& they were called racist, By gutter snipes just like you, with your open boarder agenda...
Here's the first RACIST post you missed.

Apparently, going on topix and calling people "idiots" makes you feel all warm and tingly inside. All the while not even realizing the hypocrisy of your post.

The kidnapper, may be thinking that he could have traded the girls 'out', before this happened. Fortunately, the WH is not getting involved, any international slave trade will put light on the m.Brotherhood.

Thank god the FBI, DHS and NSA can now record the original modem ip addresses and do not need to go through the subpoena process of going to topix, then the ISP records. They can now monitor the the strange posters and the people that upvoted there posts. I am beginning to like this police state stuff.

"My office of the county prosecutor will also engage in a formal process in which we evaluate whether to seek charges eligible for the death penalty," he said. "The law of Ohio calls for the death penalty for those most depraved criminals who commit aggravated murder during the course of a kidnapping."

Officials have been careful not to reveal details, but have said that the imprisonment was cruel and involved repeated sexual assaults. "The horrific brutality and torture the victims endured for more than a decade is beyond comprehension," McGinty said.

Cleveland news media have reported that one of the women is said to have had five pregnancies that ended when Castro punched her in the stomach until she miscarried.

Now 27, Berry was just shy of her 17th birthday when she vanished in 2003. Knight, 32, was 20 when she disappeared in 2002. DeJesus was 14 when she went missing in 2004.

The Associated Press said it had obtained a copy of the police report saying that the three women were starved and raped during their captivity.

Berry described in the report how she gave birth to her daughter, now 6 years old, in a plastic pool. The baby was delivered by Knight, who said she was threatened with death if Berry's child had died. Knight also said she endured five forced miscarriages, according to the wire service.

So what should the charges be?
5 counts of murder of the fetus's.

What is the appropriate, humane punishment?
