Ohio kidnap suspectís family 'pack their bags and flee' as mother apologizes...

FULL TITLE:

Ohio kidnap suspect’s family 'pack their bags and flee' as mother apologizes 'for what my son has done'

Carrying bags with their heads down, Ariel Castro's family looked frantic as they hurriedly sped off in a car today.

Marisol Alicea, believed to be alleged kidnapper Castro's sister, was picked up by their mother, Lillian Rodriguez, from her home in Cleveland, Ohio.

It is unclear where the family are headed - their quick exit has fuelled rumors they are fleeing town to escape the media frenzy.

Talking animatedly on her mobile phone Marisol Alicea was seen with two bags as she climbed into her mother's awaiting red 4x4.

Police officers stood guard near the car and Marisol Alicea put her hand up to cover her face as the car sped away.

A friend was seen holding the family dog suggesting the pair will be away for a some time.

Yesterday Lillian Rodriguez tearfully apologized for her son's actions and said she is 'in a lot of pain'.

She spoke to reporters from the window of her car as she left her home, which she shares with her son Pedro, who was also arrested in connection with the kidnappings but who has not been charged.

'I am a mother in a lot of pain,' she said in Spanish. 'I am sorry for what my son has done.'

I don’t know about what the brothers knew or did not know. The whole family however seems a bit odd. If they are innocent of all this why are they getting the hell out of Dodge?

I can understand them wanting to leave. That does not seem strange to me even if they are innocent

What does seem strange is that nobody in the family knew anything about what was happening in that house

They’ve been receiving death threats and their properties have been vandalized. They probably have a reasonable fear of being killed by somebody acting as a vigilante.

How much do you really know about what goes on in your neighbour’s or family member’s home?

If you’re brother kept a padlocked room, would really bust the door down to see why he keeps it padlocked?

The little girl called AC’s mom “grandmother”?

Where did this Mom think she came from?

Bingo.

Even if they did not outright know, there is a legal term for this... “Willful Blindness”

I think so too. Your son comes home with a little girl and no one asks “who is the mother?” Either that is one messed up family or they darn well knew.

I hope you never find that a family member is breaking the law and you didn’t know it.

Maybe not as extreme as this...but if you can tell me that you know what every family member is doing I must say I’m impressed.

Because they’re not innocent. I couldn’t hide my Playboy magazines from my mother for more than 24 hours, before she’d dig them up and throw them out. Their three boys held three captives in their home for 10 years. Nobody in the family suspected anything? Nobody saw anything? Simply not believable.

You wouldn’t think it strange that the windows were painted over and the front door sealed?

My employees have to go to peoples homes to install services. In several instances they have noticed padlocked doors and screwed shut/painted over windows. The homeowners were paranoid about home break ins or home invasion. They constantly watch the news about such things. They have shotguns leaning in every corner with multiple safety chains on each door - its strange, but we go in, do our business, get out and talk about the nut jobs for a couple days. So having padlocked entrances is not that unusual - and we are in a pretty rural area.

As far as this family goes perhaps the news media should leave them alone. There are helicopters flying over their houses for pete’s sake! And just like we all complain how the gun grabbers are trying to paint us all with the same brush, absent any evidence how is it that people are saying these distant relatives, or the mother knew what was going on? Perhaps they just thought their son weird and paranoid about home robberies.

I can’t blame them for bailing out.

If you’ll look on street view maps, there are several houses along that street with boarded up windows so his wouldn’t draw much attention especially if the neighbors thought it was mainly vacant.

See, there’s that “grandmother” thing again that I was talking about on the other thread. If a kid called me grandma, then the kid would have been to my house dozens and dozens of times and I’d know the kid’s mama. So, where is this girlfriend? My son is dragging around a little kid and the kid is calling me “grandma” might get me to thinking just maybe he’s the daddy, huh. Is she calling the brother who is passed out drunk on mama’s couch “uncle”? If I was a Puerto Rican grandma, I’d be wanting to know if my grandbaby was baptised and 6 is about the time she go to First Communion so I’d be shopping with her mama for a frilly white dress for her. IOW,
“grandma” knows a whole lot more than what she’s telling and I hope the cops aren’t going easy on her just because she’s a little old white haired lady.

You can bet the Ohio welfare system knows a lot more about this case than the incompetent Cleveland cops. Monster Castro lived pretty well---with no visible means of support. He owned the horror house--paid taxes and utilities (and mortgage?). He owned cars and motorbikes, went clubbing, seemed to have money to burn.

How many identities did Castro (and his family) use to ride the US gravy train? It's a common practice in latino communities to use multiple faked/forged ID's to collect freebies. The Washington state rapist had some 30 identities. Another latino bilked UI of $3.4 million dollars using several identities.

===============================================

This horrific story of Castro's unspeakable crimes reinforces the imbecility of "immigrations reform"---which allows illegals to overwhelm our govt (and our welfare system).

These are individuals with primitive survival instincts honed in corrupt Third World hellholes where everything is for sale.....where you take what you want.....as Puerto Rican Ariel Castro did---over and over.

To these individuals---its all about "what's in it for me, how do I get it, and who do I payoff?"

"Immigrations reform" ingrains in American culture---- the primitive survivalist instincts of criminal illegals like Ariel Castro.

Ariel Castro remained at liberty year after year, brutalizing, raping and starving three kidnapped young women who were chained and bound---imprisoned in his ramshackle house.

ON-RECORD---CLEVELAND KNEW HE WAS A VIOLENT LOWLIFE Castro's ex-wife told the Cleveland domestic-violence court that the violent Castro had brutalized and terrorized her and had abducted their children several times.

IMBECILIC CLEVELAND COPS News outlets aired a video of Castro being stopped by a Cleveland cop--Castro should have been arrested---but the stupid cop let him walk. He gave Castro two tickets for absence of m/cyle license and registration-----plus Castro's tags were on sideways--a scam to fool the imbeciles in Cleveland L/E.

DO THIS NOW The media should dig up the traffic stop police report---to see what address Castro gave---and if Cleveland Officer Simone lied on the official police report (that would be a felony).

Most cops are required to determine if an individual has a prior record of violence. Castro was a known wife beater----and had a record of abducting his own children.

==============================================

CLEVELAND HAS 107 MISSING PERSONS (at last count) In the wake of the Castro horror, reports found 107 missing persons in Cleveland. Cleveland police are too busy: on donut breaks... pumping their pensions----to solve these cases.

=============================================

We can safely conclude that "ethnic solidarity" is poisoning Cleveland government----including law enforcement.

Witness Cleveland's Asst Prosecutor present at the first press conference (AKA "The Original Amateur Hour") This self-dealing simpleton had the audacity to pump his heinous ethnic solidarity agenda.......he used the brutalized girls for his own selfush purposes---as an opporunity to score points for "ethnic solidarity."

While America was demanding that justice prevail for the three brutalized girls, the bassmole Asst prosecutor used the press conference to proselytize---to announce he, too, was a Puerto Rican (like the monstrous Castro family).

The barely literate imbecile Asst Prosecutor (poster boy for affirmative action) actually insisted we should not paint all latinos as criminals. The dumbo failed to realize HE was the problem----corrupting US justice, PUSHING ethnic solidarity poison on the nation when these horrific crimes demanded swift JUSTICE.

The self-dealing latino infected the discourse on justice for three brutalized girls. They should show him to the door and kick his incompeten *** to the curb.

As well, the Cleveland police are beneath contempt---being called to the horror house---walking away---then conveniently "losing" the call records to cover their incompetent ***es.

Aren't there any zoning or code officers/inspectors in this city?

Everywhere I've lived fire code has dictated that there has to be two means of egress, namely two functional doors, NOT boarded-up or padlocked doors and windows.

If there are lots of boarded-up residences in the perp's neighborhood, it appears they are uninhabited....and there's no goings-in and goings-out daily by inhabitants who are visibly living there, cutting the grass, tinkering with vehicles, etc. FOR TEN YEARS!

Where did he learn such brutality? It sure wasn’t in Sunday School. Look at what he did to his ex-wife.

Where did this Mom think she came from?

A story about a girlfriend who got pregnant and then left probably wouldn't even raise an eyebrow. It would certainly be acceptable to a mother, who could not conceive of the evil person her son had become.

He probably learned abuse by watching his father and he probably has abused his mother.

She is probably afraid of him.

I’m not saying that the mother or any of the family members should be excused, only that this is how abuse in families is perpetuated.

I think they suspected something but closed their eyes to the red flags.

An elderly person having that many locks I can see. They are not as strong as they used to be plus they are targeted for crime because they are old. Castro is not elderly.

See and I agree with that. Mothers just have a way of “knowing”. I think Eddie Murphy called it radar or something. Eddie would be messing up in the next room out of his mom’s sight while she was on the phone with his grandmother and she say “wait a minute mom” take off her shoe, hit Eddie with it, then say “Sorry mom, I’m back’.

I don’t know about you, but where I live, inspectors don’t go inspect residences unless they get a complaint, and they only get complaints when there is construction or someone isn’t keeping up the property. So, as long as he kept his yard clean and didn’t kick up a racket, I don’t think an inspector would set foot on the property.
