The nicest people drive a school bus in Cleve Land.

Suddenly the name of Betty White’s TVLand comdedy series, “Hot in Cleveland,” seems really disturbing.

Although it is a step up from the Cleve Lander who was stockpiling dead hookers.

Something’s fishy here. Let’s assume they were all in fact kidnapped. But held for 10 years, with no chance to get away or call for help? One of the women had a baby: where? The hospital would have been a perfect santuary to call for help.
Not to detract from the sad story here, nor the terrible crime. But: there’s more to be found out.

@4:  Why do you assume she went to the hospital to have the child?  There have been a few stories in the news over the past few years of women in similar circumstances, having their child(ren) in captivity in a basement or similar location.

@4. Some news outlets are reporting at least five pregnancies among the women over the decade and police digging in the yard, possibly for fetal remains.

Regarding the Castro Brothers, I wonder if all three were psychopaths? If so, that would seem unusual

Maybe they always wanted to be cast in “Wrong Turn 6: Cleve Land”.

My comment @12 was direct to you @13 Yankee. I have no idea how mine came up first. Andythelawyer is commenting to himself. Weird things are going on, must be a full moon…

By NoleLaw on 2013 05 09, 10:16 am CDT

New young adult summer novel: “The Phantom Comments.”  Coming soon to a bookstore near you….....

Well, it’s not like Yankee doesn’t know that the Comment Policy prohibits name-calling, and Mr. Castro has troubles enough already, without posters picking on him here.

By B. McLeod on 2013 05 09, 6:44 pm CDT

There are many miscellaneous facts being reported in the media about Mr. Castro including the fact that he owned a red Toyota pick up truck, worked as a bus driver for 20 years and apparentlynplayed an electric bass. I hope that mentioning these random data points does not run afoul of the comment policy.

Well, its not an aspersion to allege that someone owned a red Toyota pickup truck or played an electric bass.  But there are certain other things you just shouldn’t go around saying about someone, even if he is charged with a fairly long list of serious misdeeds (sans convictions, as yet).  I mean, if he really chained up and raped and beat these women as alleged, he probably isn’t a very nice person.  Likely most of us would not want him over for tea.  But as the Comment Policy notes, “there are limits” to what posters are allowed, and name-calling and personal attacks are specifically forbidden.

So, please give a break to any person or persons, real or imagined, who might or might not be policing comments on this site, and refrain from using that term again (and you know the one I mean).

By B. McLeod on 2013 05 10, 7:30 am CDT

@20 Thank you for the very good advice.

So, as I understand it, it is okay to refer to Mr. Castro as a likely psychopath, a Not So Nice Person, but in no case whatsoever should I refer to him as . . . well . . . a You-Know-What, although that term is not Defamation Per Se in most jurisdiction (except, maybe, a couple in the Southeastern United States), with truth apparently not being a defense.
