Rot in Hell is about all I can say. Good riddance and thankfully the drain on the taxpayer of jailing that bastard is stopped.

Such a shame, it would have been nice to see he be used by the general population for a while before he decided to take his own life.

RIH Ariel Castro. I was hoping you'd rot in prison but I guess you rot quickly enough when you have no soul.

He should have been shot, once, in the back of the head.

I am glad he is dead, so the taxpayers of Ohio nolonger have to pay for him.

Sure throws light on the victims being chained, imprisoned, physically and sexually abused, how they have survived.
Castro was only facing imprisonment, a real true coward he was.

This is no surprise, given that his sentence was life without parole plus 1,000 years, (sounds like a touch of overkill).

It's a bit of a surprise. He's not supposed to have access to anything that he could use to kill himself. You're supposed to serve your sentence, not get out of it through suicide.

Anyway, as much as everyone here wishes that he'd rotted in prison, does it make a difference in your life? Does it make a difference in the lives of the women he kidnapped? Either way, he's gone and can't hurt anyone else. And at least this way our tax dollars don't have to go to keeping him fed, housed, clothed, and medically treated for the rest of his life.

Hanging yourself is going to be a lot worse as it is basically chocking yourself , jerking at the end of his "rope" for a minute or two.

Oh, I have no doubts that he would have been beaten and raped multiple times in the general population. Maybe some inmates were able to tell him what he was facing in the general population.

From conversations I've had with a few people who have been in prison, the stuff he did doesn't fly in the slammer. He'd be a goner.

At the risk of saying something positive about him, he did just save the taxpayers a chunk of money.

Do you guys really think that the prison staff are so stupid that they would put him in GP? He would have been in protective custody for the rest of his life, likely meaning that he would only be allowed out of his cell for .5 to 1 hour a day for the rest of his life.

Sucks that he got out of his jail time so easily. Makes me wonder if there is more to the story. People are usually checked on more frequently than they could kill themselves.

1) That's a hell of a way to get out of jail time. And frankly, I don't care. I'm just glad he's somewhere where he can't hurt anyone else.

2) I'm wondering about that, too. Among other things, prisoners are not supposed to have access to things they could use to commit suicide.

He indeed was in protective custody. wasn't allowed out of his room and was checked on every 30 minutes.

No such think as overkill for pond scum like this bastard. I just hope there was enough time to beat and abuse him a few times before he took the easy way out.

I have no problem with Ariel Castro killing himself, he was clearly convicted with extensive and sound evidence. My problem is with those in jail who are mentally or psychologically ill, maybe even innocent or overcharged and convicted ending up with hard time due to a lack of good defense counsel, bad witnesses, then faces the horrors of jail making it worse.

I remember hearing about this on the radio... prison staff found him hanging in his cell and rushed him to the nearby medical center (Ohio State?) where medical staff there "pronounced him dead at the scene."

Yeah... I wouldn't have tried either.

I was thinking more along the lines that he should have been shot and never sent to prison in the first place.

I heard on CBS radio news he was in protective custody, not suicide watch. If I was a guard and saw that dude hanging himself I wouldn't care and if anyone asked; "I saw nothing".

That's not really true. You could hang yourself with your own pants if you knew what you were doing. Bed sheets would also do the trick.

He had been previously on suicide watch, but they took him off of that.

He's escaped true justice, he should have spent the rest of his life in a cell with no freedom.

He might have saved a load of money, but sending people to prison has a purpose - deterring people from committing crimes - so that money spent therefore serves a purpose.

Maybe he dropped his soap in the shower and found out the hard way that it is indeed a straight man's worst nightmare...

Incredible that those women survived, hope they will have a better life now that they know he is gone for good.

He is a coward. I do not believe in the death penalty for this very reason. People should have to live until they die with the crimes they commit. Obviously, he was guilty as charged and he could not live with his guilt. He will be judged, in the end. Wesley Allan Dodd asked for the death penalty. I was against that then because I believe he should have to have lived all his days with the guilt. Don't commit the crime if you can't do the time!

Well, at least Castro's death brought a little humor to the twitter-sphere, if only to highlight how absolutely clueless some people are......
