Barbed wire, chains litter Ariel Castro's yard

Bicycles. Barbed wire. A chain.

Those are of just some of the items found in kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro's Cleveland yard, according to photographs taken over the weekend by a neighbor and obtained by CNN.

The neighbor asked not to be identified and said that he took the photographs because he wants people to know what's there.

The images show a cluttered yard.

A garage sits in the background, while basketball nets, a ladder and what looks to be a pile of debris rest in the foreground.

One of the photographs shows a thick spool of barbed wire; another shows a chain.

    When anyone is held against their will and later rescued from an individuals home, the term "alleged suspect' is like slapping the victim in the face. Ariel Castro is not an alleged suspect, he has been caught red handed and therefore should not have the luxury of a trail. Nor, does he deserve to die or waste taxpayer money on numerous appeals. What he did to those young girls, that became women while in captivity, deserves a punishment much harsher then death. Ariel Castro deserves to rot in the worst prison in Ohio. Being continuously subjected to the same terror he provided those girls, by monsters far worst than himself. In my opinion, he is no different that Dahmer and therefore deserves the same correctional institution justice.

    How come SLAVERY is not included in the charges being levied agaisnt this person? I understand kidnapping, rape and murder, but why not SLAVERY, that is in fact what he submitted these poor girls to.
