Ariel Castro Wants Us to Know How 'Dearly' He Loves His Daughter With Kidnap Victim Amanda Berry

Twisted 46

Ariel CastroOh for the love of Mike. Ariel Castro, alleged kidnapper and all around sicko (allegedly), is upset, y'all! Set to plead not guilty, he can't believe that American thinks he's a monster. In fact, he wants us all to know that he loves his daughter dearly. Wait. Isn't this the daughter delivered by kidnapping victim Amanda Berry during her nearly 10-year ordeal, locked up in a house in Cleveland, Ohio, with two other women who were also being held against their will?

Yup, that's the one! The way Castro's lawyer, Craig Weintraub, tells it, we should all be ashamed of ourselves for demonizing his client. And fellow attorney Jaye Schlachet went even further!

Said Schlachet:

I can tell you that Mr. Castro is extremely committed to the well being and positive future for his daughter, who he loves dearly. And if people find that to be a disconnect from what he's alleged to have done, then the people will just have to deal with it. We just know how he feels about his little girl.

Disconnect? That's putting it mildly, folks.

I know a lawyer's job is to spin a tale to get their client the best deal, but telling the world that a man loves a child conceived during an alleged rape is hardly convincing.

That's like a serial killer announcing he's just donated a large sum of money to charity and expecting us all to forgive him for the series of bodies he's left in his wake.

One right does not undo a mountain of wrongs.

Does Ariel Castro love his daughter? Probably somewhere in that head of his, he does.

But most criminals love their kids. That doesn't keep them out of jail. It doesn't make their crimes less heinous.

As it stands, Ariel Castro is facing charges of kidnapping and rape. And with Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight standing here able to talk about the horrors that went on in that house, he's not going to be able to run and hide. He's going to have to face the charges against him and put up the best defense possible.

Loving his kid isn't going to be enough.

Do you believe Castro loves his kid? Does it MATTER?

I am just thankful there was some kind of something in his heart for that little girl. Hearing that she played outisde and spent time with other people - I am just relieved she did not personally endure all that those three women did . Though she saw it, she was captive, she had to have witnessed at least some of the abuse - I cannot imagine the horrors she has lived with . THAT is not love! He forced his duaghter to live a horrendous childhood that has assuredly done her a lot of damage. It is a relief that he didn't subject her to the things he did to her mother - but that gains him NO sympathy. It only causes me to have a tiny bit of hope and relief for the girl.

His actions were so sick and evil that I'm not sure he is even capable of love. Also, as stupid as his "defense" sounds remember that his lawyer really has nothing to work with. All he can do is try to pull on the heartstrings of prospective jurors. It won't work though. Right now I'm sure Castro is the most hated man in America.

Why oh Why would ANY defense Lawyer take this case????  Every word they say is going to make them out to be just as much as an idiot as he is!!!  Forget the trial ~ Save us all some money!

^every person has a right to a lawyer. These lawyers may not have volunteered, they may have been assigned his case

He loves his daughter so much that whenever another pregnancy arose he would beat and starve the women until they had a miscarriage.

He kidnapped three women, held them for an average of about a decade, repeatedly raped them, killed most of the babies, chained them from the ceiling, beat them, and he raped his own child...but the media and public should not demonize him or call him a monster? Who CARES about his side of the story?!?!?! I say send the lawyers to death row with him.

What about the fathers of the girls he kidnapped??? Think they loved and missed theirs??? Let him have a taste of his own medicine....at least he doesn't have to wonder is she's dead or alive...stupid Psycho...let him rot in HELL.

I am certain that this man is truly and totally incapable of love. He is quite obviously a psychopath.

I just read how he was grooming her to be the next sex slave bc he thought the other girls were getting too old. Short answer: No.
