One of the three women, kidnapped and abused for a decade at a house in Cleveland, now says she forgives her abuser.

Michelle Knight told a gathering in Cleveland’s east suburbs that a therapist convinced her to forgive Ariel Castro.

Now she says she blames Castro’s sex addiction, not Castro himself, for the horrors she had to endure; she says the biggest hurdle in her therapy was simply being able to finally utter the name of her abuser.

    I wouldn’t forgive him. He himself is responsible for his crimes, not some abstract addiction. May he rot in hell, although I doubt even the devil wants him. I’m glad he committed suicide and saved the state the expense of feeding and housing that waste of space and air for decades on end.
