Assuming he proves to be guilty, what should happen to Ariel Castro?
There are reports that at one point he considered suicide. Ironic. Maybe he felt trapped by his crime and was looking for a way out. But he didn’t have the guts.
He doesn’t deserve the death penalty, it would be doing him the favor that he wouldn’t do himself. Better the man who ran a private dungeon be put in his own cell and left to molder.
If ever there was a punishment that fits the crime, it is prison for this crime. Go ahead and make it a “supermax” prison, but put him in prison.
