(Newser) – Ariel Castro sits in Cuyahoga County Jail on $8 million bond, where he's under close scrutiny. The man charged with kidnapping three Cleveland women a decade ago is on suicide watch, and his movements are monitored every 10 minutes and reported to a shift sergeant, according to jail logs obtained by the AP. The logs also indicate two guards must accompany him anytime he's out of his cell. What the entries show:

  • Castro has spent most of the last few days lying on a mat in his cell or on his bunk, occasionally walking around the cell and once staring in the mirror.
  • He's had Kool-Aid at least twice, complained he was cold when he first arrived Thursday, and said he had a headache on Sunday (and refused to shower because of it).
  • Guards had to stop him using loose strings from his mat to floss his teeth.
  • A source who saw the logs tells NewsChannel5 Castro has stripped naked several times.
  • WKYC notes that he's barred from having personal visitors, making phone calls, or getting mail.

The blood lust for this man on this and other message boards is sick. You guys aren't as different from Castro as you think you are.

Unless we want to be as bad as him why is he being treated so dismally (no contact with the outside world) in what essentially is a holding cell? What lesson are we trying to teach him here? That we can be just as nasty as he can be? In the race to bottom he is slightly ahead of us but we are righteously catching up. Have we learned nothing?????????
