(Newser) – DNA tests have confirmed the obvious: Ariel Castro is the father of the girl that captive Amanda Berry had about six years ago, reports the AP. Among the horrific details that have emerged from police is this one: Castro forced Michelle Knight to deliver Berry's baby in a kiddie pool. Police have described young Jocelyn, remarkably, as "happy, healthy." Her mom had been home-schooling her all this time. An adult daughter of Castro, meanwhile, considers him "dead to me."

They won't punish this creature properly. There may not even be a way to punish him "enough"! On one hand, the courts will look at what he did. Then on the other hand, any kind of punishment that WE (the average sensible people) could think up, the judges would call "cruel and unusual" punishment. How ironic is that? They should castrate Castro and cast him out of the country (pluck his eyes out first)
