Such a disturbing story. These poor girls.

I see in the news that Michelle Knight didn't want to see her mother. I understand if there are family issues and she wants her privacy. I just really hope she is with good people now and not out there alone and depressed.

Thoughts and prayers are with the victims.

Hallelujah! Thank goodness! I'm so glad to know the 911 operator is being scrutinized.

Did this woman get no training? Sheesh. She kept telling poor Amanda to tell the police her story when they got there. Really!? The victim is scared out of her wits with good reason, even told the 911 woman her background, and still no sympathy, no reassurance (cops on the way, stay on the line w/ me, etc.), no support whatsoever.

She seemed bored, and I could almost hear her thinking "yeah yeah, whatever. You're boring me. Gotta go". I understand 911 operators hear a lot of things, but come on! Where's her humanity?

I personally think she should be fired, but at least some more training is a start.

So this Castro guy - why was he not in jail prior to this for abusing his ex-wife. On Greta last night they were saying he threw his wife down the basement stairs, not once but twice. All sorts of red flags w/ this guy..

I'm not buying that the brothers are totally innocent or that the other members of the family had no clue. As one of you said, definitely doesn't seem like a model family..

I dont trust news beause of the mis haps over Boston Bombing by media but there lot more to this than we know why she responding the way she is. Main reason she is ashame, another she probably heard how the police stop searching for her.
Main thing is she was one two more years longer abducted and she proably had the most physical abuse and rapes .
they also stated she needs facial reconstruction due to her face was beaten, I would doubt the last but see how that and 10 years of what she deal with would want her to resist every one.

Then there is how these girls going to pick up a normal life in being normal functioning citizens.

Years ago, I worked with some Korean women, who were sex slaves for years. Horrible conditions. They came to the USA as refugees, they got jobs, went to college, I think that moving forward, and living a normal life was therapeutic, and part of their rehabilitation, getting disability, and staying home is not a solution
That actually creates more problems.

Michelle Knight might not want anyone to see her. Apparently the slime ball beat her bad in the face and needs some type of reconstructive/plastic surgery.

What a horrible nightmare these three were living in with all the beatings and rapes.

Heard that Michelle Knight's mother kicked her out when she was only 14. Apparently her brother (who she has seen) didn't even know til very recently she was kidnapped, he said his mother never mentioned it (?!). She had a very tough childhood and as of now, wants no part of her mother (who has hired a lawyer but I don't know any details). They all need therapy and support and hopefully will have happy futures.

Glad these girls were found alive.
There was a girl who disappeared in our town, years ago. She had been kidnapped by a group of serial killers who had kidnapped, kept them captive for a while, tortured, and murdered 18 women in total thoughout the metro area. I still have nightmares about that.

they sure need help (for years to come probably)and I think building a positive future is the best thing, like Jasper said..sitting home is not the answer..they need a goal in life, something to look towards.

I'll be looking forward to the true crime book(s) that will emerge from this. And will each write a book or done jointly? And who knows what their memories will produce! If the pain was too great, their memories may be shut down already! No matter, these will be money makers for the curiosity seekers, and perhaps Hollywood!

Can't imagine any true normalcy ever returning to these women's lives, even with therapy!
