He is expected to join his brother, Richard, who was paroled last year....

    According to voter registration records, Ariel Castro, the Cleveland kidnapper, is a registered Democrat. He was also the alleged leader among the three Castro brothers, who were arrested this week, and the owner of the house at 2207 Seymour Ave., where the three abducted local women had been kept in captivity for over a decade. Why is this important? Whenever a crime or a scandal captures national attention, the pattern in the mainstream media is to either identify the culprit as a Republican or hold silence -- in which case we can rest assured that the culprit is a Democrat....

    SALT LAKE CITY - The man accused of kidnapping Elizabeth Smart from her bedroom in 2002 and holding her for nine months was again declared unfit to stand trial Monday after screaming at a judge to "forsake those robes and kneel in the dust." A hearing to review Brian David Mitchell's mental competency was quickly ended after his loud stream of outbursts and discussion of a report by his doctor that he was not participating in therapy.

As the family celebrated the return of baby Abby Woods on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2006, authorities cast doubt on claims that Torrez, accused of slashing a young mother's throat and kidnapping the baby, had in fact lost her own baby.

Torrez, 36, of Lonedell, Mo., was charged with kidnapping, first-degree assault and two counts of armed criminal...
