Donnchadha: How long before somebody slow shout talks to her like she's a caveman.

"HELLO! WELCOME. TO. AMERICA. WE. LOOKING. FOR. YOU. LONG. TIME."


No problem, she'll become a lawyer:

"When I see a solar eclipse, like the one I went to last year in Hawaii, I think 'Oh no! Is the moon eating the sun?' I don't know. Because I grew up in a basement in Cleveland--that's the way I think. But one thing I do know is that my client is due compensation for the pain and suffering caused by his neighbor's violation of the terms of the HOA agreement with that basketball hoop over the garage."

I'm so glad these folks were rescued. But, well, I'm finding it difficult to believe that, unless they were in chains, three adult females could not figure out a way to get away from that place over time. Something doesn't ring up.

I too have read about chains and ropes, but I also read in an article that one of the women was let out from time to time. I understand there might have been some mental manipulation or fear of revenge, but I have to agree, there are a few things that don't wrap up all nice and tidy.

Seriously? Look up Stockholm Syndrome. Get back to us once you've informed yourself.

durbnpoisn: You know what I'm really confused about?  And this really stems from all the cases we've heard of lately where someone has been kept captive for years on end...

Who is funding this?  It costs quite a lot to feed and house a single person on a single salary.  How do you manage 3 captives on top of that.  Hoe do you manage a baby on top of THAT?!  We're talking food, clothes, utility expenses, etc...  And this guy was a bus driver.  And he got fired last year after multiple suspensions.

Something is seriously missing from this picture.

//Well...  Lots of things.  That's just one.


Well, you've got to figure that he's got the house he paid $12,000 for in the early 90s.  If he even has a mortgage on that house, it's probably minimal and he'd be paying that (and utilities) anyway.  Beyond that, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that these girls didn't have a particularly extravagant lifestyle.

Deucednuisance: Random Anonymous Blackmail: May I be wrong, yes. May i be right, yes. The fact is you don't know, but much like you I have an opinion, and in my opinion something does not add up.

And in my opinion, there is something wrong with the way your head is wired.

There's treatment available.

Seek it.

But before they dope you up, perhaps you could enlighten us: what, exactly doesn't "add up" and what do you "think" it indicates as an alternative, more accurate description of what occurred?


Actually it's <i>your</i> heads that have been wired, programmed by Big Government and Corporations to trust The Man and Never Question Authority and always Believe What You Are Told.  There's more Through The Looking Glass that you Farkers just don't understand.

It never ceases to amaze me that no matter how horrific a crime is, there are always a few people on Fark desperately looking for a way to assign blame to the victim, or at least to somehow excuse the behavior of the criminal.

What's going through your head here, exactly? You're thinking, what, maybe one or more of these women actually dug being chained in a basement and used as a sex slave for ten years? Maybe the women came from abusive families, and by chaining them up in a basement and using them as sex slaves for ten years these sick bastards were doing them some kind of favor? Maybe those teenage girls willingly chose to be chained up in a basement and used as sex slaves for ten years? Maybe those guys bought the girls from their parents fair and square?

Somehow, in your mind, these women MUST have deserved what happened to them because they didn't do what you imagine you would do in a situation you cannot possibly even begin to imagine. Is that what you think? Seriously? Or maybe you think the media is making a mountain out of a molehill, because come on, lots of women would probably like to be chained up in a basement as a sex slave for ten years?

What the fark is WRONG with you?

Yes, I wonder what on earth could possibly deter these women from just walking away whistling. I am sure the threats of torture and death of not only them, but perhaps even the little girl were never taken seriously. Then of course there is the Stockholm Syndrome, but I am sure that in just 10 years it would not have time to settle in with them. But you are right, something doesn't ring up. I am guessing they enjoyed being beaten and raped.

Grumpy Cat: My husband's daughter has been missing since 1999. This story just brings up all your worst fears. But it makes you wonder if she's still alive. We haven't a clue.

/not so cool story


I grew up across the street from my cousin who was two years older than me, we were as close as brothers.  When he turned 18 he decided to do some hiking and see the country - he had previously done wilderness school and outward bound.  A week later he called to say he was at the grand canyon and that is the last anyone ever heard or saw of him.

The not knowing and not being able to have closure is the hardest part.  I still slow down for hitchhikers or people walking on the street just to look and see if it is him.  The dreams have slowed in the past 31 years but I still have the occasional dream he is back.

EvilEgg: Endive Wombat: I know there will be a book or three telling the horrors of the rape basement...and I cannot wait to read about it.

I am fascinated  (and sickened) by how someone can try and justify keeping sex slaves for 10+ years locked away like that...blows my mind...

If their trial gets aired, it ought to be interesting.  I am going to suspect that they may plead insanity because "I am a sadistic, evil cock, please show me mercy" will not bode well with the jury.  Everyone deserves a fair trial, but damn...I would not want to be their public defender.

It's been done
