Ariel Castro, Dean West and Sexual Sadism

UPDATE 4/2/15:  How someone like this can appear normal is frightening and people should never assume that what is in front of them is the complete picture.  
'He was so romantic': Woman who dated Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro speaks out about their 'completely normal' sex life in new book and says she never knew about the women imprisoned in his basement

5/8/13 - I am only going to write for a bit right now.  I am having flashbacks, crying, and thinking about all that is unfolding in Cleveland since I began following the news about the three women, Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, who are now free after being kidnapped and held captive for years. 

On CNN Mary Ellen O'Toole described the "alleged" perp, Ariel Castro, as a sexual sadist, a sexual deviant.  Here is an exerpt and a link to a transcript of one conversation with her, but I don't think it is the exact one I saw:
COSTELLO: All right. All right, thank you very much Julio Castro and Martin Savidge.

Martin you're going to stick around. Thank you so much. I want to bring in Mary Ellen O'Toole now. She served as one of the most senior profilers for the FBI until her 2009 retirement. She joins us by phone from Milan, Italy. Thank you so much for being with us this morning Mary Ellen and we appreciate this.

MARY ELLEN O'TOOLE, FORMER SENIOR FBI PROFILER (via telephone): You're welcome.

COSTELLO: This is such an odd case. It just defies belief that one man was able to hold three women captive for a decade and nobody really noticed. What kind of man would -- what kind of man would want to do that? Would do that?

O'TOOLE: Well, my sense is what we're looking at based on other cases that I have worked that this is someone who would be defined or characterized as a sexual sadist and a sexual sadist is a -- it's very unusual individual and they're motivated by keeping their victims for days, weeks, months or years. And the actual definition is that they are sexually aroused by the victim's response to the infliction of physical or emotional pain.

And we've had cases like this in the past. We've had cases where the victims have been kept under the bed, in a bunker. Again, it's unusual, but when I'm hearing all the details that are coming out, I would suspect there is a good possibility that this is someone who is very sexually sadistic. It does not mean that he is crazy.

So I want to make sure that people understand that. This is a sexual -- sexual deviancy. And it's a very, very dangerous sexual deviancy.

I immediately had flashbacks and remembered that at a certain point, after having been brutalized by Dean West repeatedly, and yes, held against my will at times, I said to myself, and I think I might have written it somewhere on this blog, that Dean became sexual aroused while inflicting pain on me.  And one night, when he had stayed up most of the night watching porn on my computer, this very computer, he told me he looked at many, many women's pictures, before he found just the right facial expressions.  He said he only found 1 that night that really aroused him.   I could go on right now, describing how he hurt me, the blows, hair-pulling, the hand bending and squeezing, etc, etc, etc, and how when I returned to Illinois in the fall of 2008, he made me take off my clothes and he locked them in his van along with my suitcases and I was ordered not to look out the windows.   I could tell you how he bragged about his triple pane, argon-gas-filled windows which kept the neighbors and passersby from hearing women, myself included, scream.  I could describe the look in his eye when he had hurt me and became aroused by it and demanded to have sex.   But right now I am just too upset.  I am letting some of this out, a little of it, so I can go on with my day, and I will pray for these women.  No, I didn't suffer to the extent they did, but I have suffered some of what they did and have had a glimpse into the life they have had to live for years and my heart weeps for them!  God help them in their journey of healing from those atrocities!  The Cleveland Foundation is now over-seeing a fund set up to help Amanda, Gina and Michelle, the Cleveland Courage Fund at clevelandcouragefund@gmail.com.

This morning on the news there was an interview with one of the people who saw the naked woman in the yard who says they called the police and weren't taken seriously.  Last evening I saw an interview with man who said he was one of those people.   One of the things I have been blogging about here is how crime victims are treated by law enforcement.  I should have been taping all the dispatchers I talked to who didn't act appropriately or correctly.  I should have been taping every law enforcement person who blew off Dean West's crimes...but I didn't.  I don't walk around with my tape recorder and frankly, that is not the way I want to live my life.  Plus I have post traumatic stress disorder and don't always act to protect or defend myself in an organized and effective way.  Plus, the idea that people have to defend themselves against incompetent or uncaring law-enforcement officials goes against what I thought I learned as a girl, about what it means to be an American, about what it means to matter because I am an American citizen.  It goes against the idea that people who take those jobs do it because they want to serve the public and the public interest.  Now, I am a realist when it comes to human nature and what it takes to rise above the selfish side of human nature.  If everyone would stop pretending that all of law-enforcement care deeply about protecting people from crime and investigating crimes, and just accept that those people fall into temptation because of human nature, then maybe realistic problem solving of the issues might take place on a wide spread basis.  Hearing that witnesses to a naked women in Castro's backyard were blown off by Cleveland Police doesn't surprise me.   Not one bit.  I believe it happened.

The police usually come in after crimes are already committed.  We all have a responsibility to pay attention, to care, to not "mind our own business," and to be our brother's keeper, and to try to accept the reality that seems to be becoming more of a reality, that things are not always what they seem and that people are often not what they appear to be.

And to any woman, or any person, who is still helping him get away with having hurt other women?  Shame on you!  Wake up, face the reality you probably know in your heart, even if it is only in fleeting moments that you realize the reality of what you are dealing with, what you are accepting.  You are helping a monster achieve independence from accountability.

Another thing I saw this morning was one of the "talking heads," as I call the people tv news pulls on for interviews ( I think it was on Fox), commenting on a Plain Dealer article which cites court documents in which Ariel Castro's ex-wife claimed to have suffered severe injuries at the hands of Castro.  The commentator was explaining, when asked how such brutality never resulted in criminal charges, that people say many things and make many claims during custody battles.  I thought to myself, that was so typical of the attitudes of lawyers and because the lawyers are the top of the criminal justice pecking order, that attitude has "trickled down" to police. Uh-huh!  I have called the protection order court in Sangamon County a "mill" in previous posts.  Our society is becoming increasingly more violent.  What are we doing to do about it?  Don't mind your own business.  Get involved.  And don't think you can leave it to the "experts."  We all have a responsibility to fight crime!  One way to get involved is the National Night Out Against Crime.  Be a nosy neighbor!  I am.  For information see www.natw.org .
Court records indicate Ariel Castro fought with his former wife, Grimilda Figueroa, over the custody of their children. Figueroa twice suffered a broken nose, as well as broken ribs, a knocked-out tooth, a blood clot on the brain and two dislocated shoulders, according to a 2005 filing in Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court. In the filing, her attorney requested that a judge "keep [Castro] from threatening to kill [Figueroa]."
Attorney Robert Ferreri said Figueroa "has full custody with no visitation for [Castro]. Nevertheless, [Castro] frequently abducts daughters and keeps them from their mother." Figueroa died last year. Ferreri could not be reached. Any record of charges being filed could not be located.

Dean West can be found here now:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mission-Standards-Academy/1390575164543783?sk=timeline -  Mission Standard Academy   Yeah right.
Some of the people discussed on this blog are or have been supposed directors of what have been purported to be charitable foundations, The Myria Foundation, and The Encyclopedia Foundation, and so are public figures subject to public scrutiny of their character. I was a duped into becoming involved, first as a "director" of The Encyclopedia Foundation and then as a "Founding Director" of The Myria Foundation, which I co-created, verifiable with the Illinois Secretary of State's office. I paid to incorporate The Myria Foundation and I have a legal right to discuss it. This is MY life, and I am a witness to and victim of crimes no one seems to want to do anything about (though last I knew there is an open criminal case against him in Sangamon County). I have over 2 feet of documents and hours of wav. files to back me up and the alleged illegal behaviors I write about here have been reported to the FBI, the Attorney General's office in Illinois, the State's Attorney of Sangamon County and the Springfield Police, the Ashtabula County, Oh, Sheriff and prosecutor, the Sangamon County, IL, Sheriff, and are part of various court records. It is my layman's opinion that Dean West is a sociopath, based on observed and documented behaviors. "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." As a good citizen of the USA, I am outraged that Mr. West has been allowed to victimize me. His modus operandi is so clear. He uses his current female victim/s to help him get away with what he did to the last one. The domestic violence community is missing the boat on that aspect: women who stay in abusive relationships are sick. Allowing them to determine public policy and prosecution does not protect the public. Most men who beat women do not murder, they simply move on to the next victim. Most recently, Mr. West was charged with Domestic Violence against yet another female partner/director of the "foundation" (but she didn't show up at the trial and Judge Sanchez wouldn't grant the prosecutor a continuance to find her!) and just prior to that was on probation for resisting a peace officer, which started out as assault of a police officer. I know there is a warrant out for him violating the RO of one of his net victims in Paterson, New Jersey and there is a felony warrant for him out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota right now also for a sixth degree felony, violation of a stalking restraining order.
