Three Women Rescued After 10 Years In Captivity

Few stories have captured the nation's attention in the last couple weeks more so than the story that three young women have been rescued, apparently safe-and-sound, following their respective kidnappings and 10-year captivity, held against their will in a run-down house in Cleveland.

As if the kidnapping and decade in captivity weren't enough, the women were held in a house in the very same neighborhood near where they had lived - in other words, right under the noses of the friends and family and neighbors who conducted search-and-rescue efforts and kept up a 10-year vigil.

According to the CBS News report, three brothers in their 50s have been arrested for the kidnappings, and are expected to be charged soon.

One of the women, Amanda Berry, is said to have been kidnapped when she was 16, in 2003, which makes her 26 now. She told the police dispatcher: "I've been kidnapped, and I've been missing for 10 years. And I'm here. I'm free now."

Just as this story has captured the nation's attention, so do major violent crimes like kidnapping, rape, and murder. It's too early to tell what exactly happened to the three young women while they were held captive. But it's plain to see that the three arrested brothers will be vilified before they've had their day in court. In spite of the violent, difficult nature of this case, it's important that these three brothers aren't presumed guilty till proven innocent.
