Not guilty?? Of what, being sane? Yes hes not sane most definatly. What a joke, these lawyers of his are idiots no doubt. Its pretty plain to see he was holding these women against their will,.... They were ,...LOCKED INSIDE THE HOUSE!! Ok?? Next, the rape, one of them had a child by him while she was ,...LOCKED INSIDE THE HOUSE!! Im sure givin the circumstance of being held prisoner by a manic she had no other choice but to allow the rape to occur repeatedly or else suffer the consequences, which Im sure were dreadful. He raped those women and held them prisoner and abused them and them being so young Im sure after time gave in having lost hope of rescue or escape. Not to meantion Im sure they are prob plenty brainwashed by now prob making their testimonys unrelayable to an extent. For all we know these women may actually have feelings for this crazy bastard. Its unreal and very unbelievable. I dont expect real justice or a good outcome for either side. He will prob get 5 or 10 years in prison in which he will be released to prey on young girls once again. God bless America. I say give him the ol, eye for an eye, see how he likes being raped and beatin for a decade.

One more comment id like to make. And I dont want in anyway to sound as if Im placing any disrespect to the victims. They went threw hell and Im very very sad for them and Im glad they are finally back with their families. I need someone to help me understand how it is, that 3 people together, in the total period of nearly a decade, cannot figure out or formulate an escape plan? Its a house in the middle of a populated neighborhood, not a maxium security prison. Your being held captive by a school bus driver. I just dont understand how they never got out until now? theres 3 of you and Im sure if the will is strong enough could have overpowered this guy, ive seen him on tv, he aint exactly a big guy. Maybe they just didnt want to leave, maybe they just lost hope in life, maybe they were so weak minded they got brainwashed by a school bus driver.?? I dont know, this whole thing stinks to me and the fact that none of the details are comming out makes me even more suspicious. Somebody help me out here please.

I totally agree!! How the hell can the idiot plead NOT GUILTY, when he clearly did those horrific crimes to those young ladies?? Not only is he a kidnapper and rapist but also a child molester!! His lawyer say's that he is not a monster...LOL. What the hell is he then if he's not a monster. Actually the world monster is to damn good for him to be called. In my opinion, he doesn't even deserve a trial, he needs to be executed and done away with! He doesn't deserve to live another day. He will/is nothing but another piece of shit that the tax payers will have to keep up until the day his mental ass dies. Tax payers will have the bill of his attorney fees also. I hope he is right now in a cell with no window to look out of, get's the hell beat out of him every day, and starved for weeks at a time, the same way he done Michele Knight!! Better yet, turn his sick ass over to those girls families and let them do with him what they please!! I highly believe in vigilante style justice but it seems that monsters such as this idiot are the ones the system want's/try's to protect for some reason, and why I don't know! It's mind boggling to me!!

People are saying the police must have been in on this because of the lame way they investigated.

That maybe they were getting sex from these girls.

They would only ring the bell, then leave.

That's just the way they do it these days.

We had a guy here who had his neighbors head in his trunk of his car, and he also pleaded not guilty.

It's not like the old days anymore. Now they automatically plead not guilty.

Oh my gosh that is horrific. It's a shame it's not like the olden days when people such as this guy you spoke of, Castro and so many other monsters could be hung in the street for ALL to see!! The system has grown to soft through the years, in my opinion. They are so afraid of someone yelling discrimination that they moreless try to protect them! I guess they have Castro in a Cell to himself because they know if they don't, then he won't live to even see a trail date, some of those guys in jail with him would kill him. They will eventually get to him though and he will deserve everything he gets!! Even the beatings and rapes that he will receive will not be nearly enough torture for him for what he put those poor girls through!! It just boggles my mind that a judge would even let someone plead not guilty when they know without a shadow of a doubt that person did it. I guess it's to give them fair rights, as it's called. In the days we are now living in, The right is made to look wrong and the wrong made to look right!!

The police did do a lame job of investigating Castro and his house, in my opinion!! Now that the girls have been rescued, the police are trying to pat themselves on the back and cover their asses at the same time!! Those young ladies woulda/coulda been found years earlier if the law enforcement had tried to follow through on some of the complaints that were called in, but of course and as always they are claiming that certain 911 calls didn't come in!! 911 calls aren't going to show if they've been erased and I think that's exactly what's took place, in my opinion!!

Believe me this man will NEVER see the light of day after the trial. Of course he has to plead not guilty he has no other choice. Even if the cops did screw up it does NOT dismiss the fact he kidnapped, raped, starved, brutalized and ruined these woman's lives, he stole their youth, their virginity, their graduations, marriage and children! He holed them up in cold dark basement with not medical help, he beat Michelle so badly she suffers from hearing loss! and he made Amanda give birth in a plastic pool, she could of bled to death and died, he actually beat them so bad he caused them to abort and miscarry time after time! and there is probably So much more he did we do not even know about yet!!

Its a miracle these women did NOT die, the fact they are alive and not insane or horribly ill is a miracle and blessing, they are young through and yes youth has the advantage, Thank God they lived.

His lawyers are just doing their job, believe me they can not stomach him either, BUT if they do not defend they lose their jobs, just like Casey Anthony, her attorneys and judge could not stomach or bear to look at her ugly ape face but its their job. AND if anyone, and I cannot believe there is one person that believes in this piece of garbage, ask them the question "Would YOU let Ariel Castro babysit your kids and grandkids??? that will shut them up pretty quick. He is going down and he deserves it, those defense attorneys would be quite stupid to go after and harass those three girls, the jury would hate that!! He will rot in hell do not fear!!
