    They should get a pay raise and named employee of the month.

    Regardless of what Castro did, there will at least be a cursory investigation. No jail or prison can get away with letting a suicide watch inmate be taken off of suicide watch right before he hangs himself. Mind you, I'm not at all sad that the animal has met his maker, but it just can't be ignored that the officials let a suicide happen.

    Once upon a time, it would have been a jailor who left him a set of sheets, then walked away for a while -- then the investigation would be a gloss over while everyone gave the jailor a pat on the back. But that's not what'll happen. At a minimum, there will be a cursory overview to say that the officials had no way of predicting this.


    Exactly what happened Tuesday night will be investigated by state officials who are expected to release more details later Wednesday, Seyfang said. Castro’s lawyer has also called for an investigation.

    Ohio prisons Director Gary Mohr has appointed a “review team” to look into the suicide of Ariel Castro, the Cleveland man convicted for kidnapping, raping and keeping three women hostage in his home for nearly a decade.

    Mohr said Ed Banks, managing director of organizational development for the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, will lead a team from the agency’s “legal, medical, mental health, security and operational divisions” to compile a report by the end of September.

    The agency will “thoroughly review all pertinent medical and mental health care records concerning inmate Castro and information surrounding the incident,” Mohr said in a statement this afternoon. “These professionals will determine whether applicable policies and procedures concerning the delivery of medical and mental health care were followed for inmate Castro.”

    They'll have to at least do a "review", for legal and political reasons. They may have to hang someone out to dry, too.

    Attorneys are supposed to defend their client as well as they can, even if the client is a dirtbag. The hope is that both attorneys do their job as well as they can and a jury can determine the truth. I don't ding the attorney for doing what he can. It's a thankless job. But I do think we need an express line to the gallows.

    The client is now dead

    Attorney is capitalizing on that for more personal publicity

    Not thankless at all as the state will be paying his bill

    I started a thread about capital punishment for issues JUST LIKE THIS and a bunch of whiners jumped in saying it was unethical, immoral, etc.

    How anyone could support not giving this guy the death penalty or a rope to do it himself is beyond me.
