It's beyond horrible what they went through but it's nothing short of a miracle that they're still alive and you have to be happy for them and their families. It's not that often situations like this have a happy ending (or at least, as happy as it can be when you consider the emotional scarring these poor women will undoubtedly suffer from). Prayers for them and their families.

With them being found, there is at least a CHANCE for them to heal and somewhere down the road, hopefully have a "normal" life!
Apparently during that time, one of them gave birth to a girl, who was also held in captivity. So many thoughts arise from this. For starters, that woman will raise that little girl knowing that half of her DNA came from a sick bastard. Will what she went through affect her feelings for that child? How will that child feel, growing up knowing that she was the product of rape? Also, if that woman gave birth in captivity, then she didn't have any medical care going through childbirth. That includes anesthetics or any other medicine that gives comfort during and after that situation. Hell, my wife suffered from all kinds of tearing and blood pressure problems during her delivery. She likely would've died without medical treatment. I can only imagine how rough it was on this poor woman.
It's amazing this Cana even happen right in the middle of a neighborhood like that. I'm interested in what was going on in e house and how things were kept so quiet all that time. Just unbelievable. By the way, the interview with the guy (Ramsey) that saved them is freaking hilarious. "I knew something was wrong when a white woman runs into the arms of a black man." Good for him.
The Father, The Son... well, it's the
The Holy Trinity... as I see it.
hard to comprehend how those 3 girls could be kept quiet for a decade with no clues or chances to escape or anything. What they must have been put through.....and to be a few miles from where they lived!!!????
One of the guys used to be a school bus driver.......sick fucks.
My your liqueur be cold, your women be hot, and all your problems slide off like snot.
Buckeye_mikey69, great question, though want to throw in here that good is possible. Have a colleague who is the product of a rape. A real stand-up guy, admired, has a good family. Hope these women (and children) come out okay.
WTF is funny about that????
It is hilarious, here it go.

First, the guy that saved them is a hero! He needs to be given the key to the city, appear in parades, throw out the first pitch at an Indians game, and never have to buy a drink for himself in the city of Cleveland again.
Second, what plan did the sick ass rapist have going forward? There was a child/children being held in captivity too. What was his plan for the kids? Eventually he was going to have to deal with the kids. I am glad they caught him when they did because he was probably going to make the jump from rape and kidnapping to murder.
The local ABC affiliate in Cleveland is now reporting that there were MULTIPLE pregnancies and miscarriages between these 3. UGH!
They went through 10 years of hell. Many women have their lives ruined over being raped just once. I can not imagine the horror that these girls went through being raped over a 10 year period.
This is so terrible, I hope they hang the people responsible in the middle of the street. With that said, how are you held someplace for 10 years and can't figure a way out or a way to overcome ur attacker and get the f*%! out of there?!
Well let's not rush to judgement.. but it has also come out that they were separated and tied/chained up a lot of the time. For now, I think we can all be thankful that these guys finally made a mistake.. may have taken 10 years.. but they finally made a mistake that led to the freedom of these 3 women.. which is a wonderful thing at long last!
Also.. @ BuckeyeWarrior - completely agree. These women have a LONG road to recovery ahead I'm sure. Once the media loses interest in this story.. they will still have YEARS ahead of them of much needed support & therapy to help heal & move on. I'm assuming many charities, churches, etc are going to start stepping up to the plate with funds available to these victims.. it will be very much needed. I plan on contributing something myself when I find a reputable charity or if my church puts something together.
I didn't read the details of this.
However, it reminds of the girl in Colorado or Utah (Smart?).
She was "held hostage" for 10+ years.
About a mile from her house, and despite multiple visits from police when she was in her cators house.
I have no freakin clue how one doesn't escape over that amount of time.
Part tragedy and part overwhelming stupidity.
No the kids fault....she will love that child maybe even more! She has spend however many years now raising the child!
On the other hand, I feel for Cleveland...first the "drive" and then the "fumble" and then the "decision" and now the "three girls held captive thingy"!
Seriously? Cmon Diddy. They were young teenage girls when they were captured. If you are tied up, how are you going to escape? There were three grown men holding them captive. Pretty hard to get out of that situation.
Smart was missing for 9 months. She could have escaped because she was seen walking around. That is baffling.
I agree. Young girls in fear for their lives would pretty quickly identify with the captors, like Elizabeth Smart did. She is a sharp girl, adjusting well by all accounts, but went out in public with her captors, too. The continued sexual attacks would reinforce the fear and view of captors as being too powerful to cross....
I also heard a CNN reporter use the phrase "sex slaves" in the media event this morning in Cleveland....."Were these girls being kept as sex slaves?" I sure hope the media does better than that going forward. Not worth selling a few more papers or airtime to use lurid and over-the-top terms like that. I wish the FBI agent that fielded the question had told him to go stuff himself.
If the early details of this are true, then I'm not sure it's off-base at all to ask that question. Multiple people in the neighborhood say they had seen these men over the years in the middle of the night in their backyard with nude girls on a leash walking them around like dogs. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/05/07/missing-women-cleveland-brothers-arrested/2140359/
We'll find out for sure once more details come out, but between this and reports that these girls were raped, and impregnated at least five times http://www.newsnet5.com/dpp/news/local_news/cleveland_metro/police-source-multiple-pregnancies-miscarriages-among-missing-women-found-in-cleveland-home this is some messed up crap that is looking very sexual in nature.

Wow, I hope the reports of the police not doing anything previously is false.
Spoken like a true asshole
This reminds me of the Austrian man who kept his daughter locked in a cellar for 24 yrs and fathered 7 children. SICK !
No, you're right. I'm sure it was entirely sexual perversion that generated the kidnappings and imprisonment. I just think that using salacious terms like "sex slaves" in the media is exploiting the girls for reader/viewership. "Were the girls sex slaves?" was like the 3rd question the FBI agent got....the CNN reporter sounded like a total perv.
If you're familiar with the movie Law Abiding Citizen, you know that the main character tortures his family's killer in the most gruesome form of vigilante justice. I usually refer to this as the deserved punishment when I hear about some of the terrible things that happen in this world. This is a case where that just doesn't seem close to good enough.
Every one in Cleveland is very thankful that these girls were rescued. Charles Ramsey is fantastic and his new song WILL become a hit.
If any one saw the map of where they were all taken compared to where they were found. The first girl that was taken lived very close to where they were found. FBI 101, if you focus on the first victim, answers will come.
