Alleged kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro could face death penalty

Cleveland's Chief Assistant Prosecutor Victor Perez joins Zoraida Sambolin on 'Starting Point' to discuss the charges brought against alleged Ohio kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro. Victor Perez read the official charges that Castro is currently being charged with; as of now Castro is charged with three counts of rape, and four counts of kidnapping.

Perez's main concern in this case is for people to understand that the acts of Ariel Castro do not reflect the entire Puerto Rican community in this country. Perez states, "the Puerto Rican community is a hard working community," and he hopes that that the country realizes there is more to this community then the acts of this one individual.

Inside the mind of a monster

Former FBI Special Agent Jim McNamara is on 'Starting Point' talking with Zoraida Sambolin. He weighs in on the investigation of kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro. McNamara evaluates the phycology of a kidnapper in a case such as the one against alleged kidnapper Ariel Castro, and what could possibly be going through Castro’s mind at this point in this investigation.

McNamara believes that Ariel Castro is only concerned about himself, and "the only thing going through his head right now is he's sorry he got caught. The only remorse he feels is for himself."
