So What IS A Violent Man?

Tuesday saw the suicide of Ariel Castro, a Cleveland bus driver jailed for life for kidnapping and raping three young women he held as sex slaves for a decade.

You can read the full story here, and here.

Here’s something that does not sit quite right with me. The article said that, “despite having pleaded guilty to 977 charges related to his victims’ brutal decade-long ordeal, including many rapes and the murder of a foetus through beating its mother, Castro said he was not a violent man.”

If, after having done all that he was convicted of doing, he describes himself as “not a violent man,” then what pray tell is a violent man?

Words fail me. Sometimes.
