I'm on the back to have.
-- -- DNA tests have confirmed that aerial Castro the monster is indeed the father of -- -- to -- six year old daughter and after being charged with kidnapping and rape for holding.
Three Ohio women captive in his home for nearly a decade.
Castro's relatives are beginning to break their silence on one of his daughters told ABC news that her father deserves the death penalty and that's not all.
Other relatives are now saying that he terrorized his former wife beat her and pushed him down -- -- and one shoved her into a cardboard box.
Joining me now with reaction to these disturbing new details are psychiatrist doctor -- Varma.
And psychotherapist doctor -- -- wig is with -- all right so that this is a pattern of behavior yes yes -- And you know I wonder sometimes.
I we have the whole law enforcement issue of it a wonder if we're just maybe people are just -- believing that people will change.
Right once you see that behavior is it likely they're gonna change -- It's it's not -- not to the extent that these events have occurred with his wife.
That some of the torture that we see that happen later on a lot of it was sort of foreshadowing earlier on and that's why it's it bothers me that these cases get dropped on a technicality when you say like.
This is a pattern of behavior when he was talking about child abuse and happening to him early Iran and sexual -- it's sort of like true true but I'm related yes you have all these horrible things happen -- but there.
Additionally don't turn into sexual -- is you don't kidnap people you know I wonder if once this man's wife left him.
You know she was the target of all this abuse.
If that contributed to him creating this pseudo family they also say with some of these kind sexual.
You know status.
That they they not only want power over the women that they kidnapped but they also want the company they want to control.
But that's I think keep them around this guy didn't kill the winning he kept them around he pro creating and we sent -- -- -- but that -- this to go on for ten years.
You don't have assault.
You got me so was pretty and you know it's like people don't kill people not.
-- -- and that's zero.
-- that's right and that's what makes somebody evil him when you have no ability to feel when another person is feeling cool car but doesn't slump I treat.
Evil today -- -- I think oh yeah I mean we're now that it's all biochemical let me give me a pill candy but some diagnostic -- it like when you look at psychopaths and -- the hallmark is.
Lack of -- my lack of remorse lack of responsibility look at can somebody develop that.
I mean if they -- it what -- the likelihood.
If somebody is so conscience less yes that they didn't mowed down kids in a classroom at a six years old or do what this animal did.
To these -- girls.
And it can see how does that person develop a conscience will clearly there is -- one.
No I don't I don't -- didn't I don't know how to cure since yup the -- right.
That's the problem that's -- some of the people who land in prison -- -- stayed there -- return there and they think in some cases you know there is born that.
There's the person who maybe it's brain damage there unable to really -- on somebody -- and -- behalf -- and like they are still abuse yes they have -- and they under Oregon -- eliciting these are great and we sure yeah -- out.
Thought I'd probably need a lot of therapy -- Let me let me -- you're very confident -- -- -- -- the other day you about the ability of these girls to recover and have a good life.
Yes I -- I don't know how they overcome us.
Listen I mean everybody has a different resilience -- -- but there are women who have been kidnapped.
Like these girls and they've gone on to either be counselors to write books about their experience they've gone on to get married and had kids.
Will this be a part their life for ever yes but it doesn't need to stop them from living.
As -- -- as possible the U spirit is tremendously resilient.
If you get treatment you picked -- good support systems in your house.
And in your in your life -- -- you say that because we have the Boston Marathon bombing all of those soldiers that had lost their legs I need these a lot of them went and spent a lot of time with the victims -- -- terror attacks.
To show them hey I was exactly where you war and this is where my life is now -- was really -- Right and you've got to bring up a great point is -- -- at the idea of altruism like when we look at resiliency and we look at there's like six mean things coping.
Having flexible coping skills.
Altruism positive outlook sense of humor.
The social support -- being able to give back is the biggest thing with when you mentioned about the writing the books.
Performing source social support being -- counselor you really have to get out of your own brain because sort of trauma and PT SD.
And anxiety and depression suicide -- and that comes about this is very self absorbing and I'm not saying that you shouldn't be depressed after this happened I'd be depressed.
Yes I think you need to get us through that period of depression like reading -- and the -- you can find the meaning in any type of horrible situation.
And figure out how you -- use that not only better your life that those around you.
That can be very curative maybe maybe that was what really helped those those soldiers who had lost their limbs are that they have a sense of purpose gas open the boss tomorrow only -- and four other soldiers that.
Have the same troubles happened later and it probably had a good psychological foundation before the trauma and I think that probably also has a lot of -- -- -- they were so yelling I mean this these are real important formative years yeah for these to these -- I mean they grew up there they were there for ten years and you're talking about a fourteen year old and the seventeen year old.
They spent their entire adult life there this guy give the death penalty it seems prosecutor may go for what do you think.
Honestly I think that if he's not going to change and if you're going to be using resources out there better ways to be spending money on -- 57000.
Dollars a year in jail time but I don't isn't -- my dad and I'd like to see him get chemical castration I think he needs -- you'd like to see him -- he won the chemical castration first war.
So that it experienced female hormones and I think -- I'd like to see in death.
You know so I -- why did just that one last -- no question not related to the topic why he doesn't psychiatry psychology recognize evil more.
Why is everything viewed through this by a biochemical prism.
We're not here to judge it's it's not a moral -- good that you can measure evil scientifically.
And so do you believe human beings are also spirit.
I did -- you do I don't and that means good and evil.
Well I think it -- evil behaviors and I think if someone doesn't have the ability to recognize.
They're inflicting pain or enjoys inflicting pain that I think evil act whether they are evil or not.
And really interesting question yes and we also see the people -- anti -- personality disorders they also experienced pain physical pain a lot less than the average -- yeah you're gonna hook them up to pain.
Causing electrical gray hair different yeah.
Evil exist to keep trying to lost a hundred million people human souls the last century.
