I wonder if the gubmint (federal or Ohio state) really did this. Not that I’m shedding any tears for this animal, but I don’t trust any local, state or federal gubmint any longer, especially the federal gubmint. I would THINK that any material (rope, belt, etc) that could be made into a hangman’s noose would have been removed from Ari Castro’s possession. But on the good side, at least we saved a $3-400,000 a yr (or more) that the taxpayer won’t have to pay for the next 30-40 years to keep this maggot alive. I wish the same thing could be arranged for all the current prisoners on death row, especially the Ft Hood killer Major Hassan.
