(Newser) – Pedro and Onil Castro are trying to put as much daylight between them and brother Ariel Castro as possible, telling CNN in an exclusive interview that they worry they'll be linked to his alleged crimes, that they're in hiding along with their mother, and that they face rocks thrown through windows and online death threats. "I couldn't never think of doing anything like that," says Pedro Castro. "If I knew that my brother was doing this ... I would call the cops because that ain't right. If I knew, I would have reported it, brother or no brother." The complete interview is set to air tomorrow.

Execute all of the Castro brothers and send a restraining order to Hollywood to not bother those that were "kidnapped". What is up with all this increase of sex crimes by people from latin countries? It has really gotten bad in Texas along with their excessive DWIs and assaults. Time to send a message to these people that this will not be tolerated in the United States.

They really cleaned these guys up for the camera. When last seen, they looked like drunken bums right off the street. It's amazing what a shower and a shave can accomplish. If they had any sense, they'd stay this way.

Sociopaths are masters of manipulation. If anyone has ever done any reading on serial killers, you'll come across many instances of sociopaths who are able to deceive everyone around them. A sociopath does not feel guilt about what they do. They can tell any lie with a straight face. They have no morals to hold them back. They can pretend to be normal and totally pull the wool over your eyes. While a sociopath only cares about themselves and don't actually feel emotions such as empathy and loyalty, they have no problem manipulating the good intentions and emotions of others.
