"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Breakdown and analysis on the Ohio kidnappings

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Legal expert panel discuss the Ohio kidnappings

As the world awaits charges against the Ohio brothers suspected of kidnapping and holding captive three young women for over a decade, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed experts Lisa Bloom, Ernie Allen and Mark Geragos to the program to discuss the legal aspects of the investigation.

"They should go in there and testify against them, get those guys locked up for the rest of their lives," said Bloom of the three women if the brothers Ariel Castro, Pedro Castro and Onil Castro are charged and the case goes to trial.

"There are some people who don't need to be retraumatized by going through that," warned Geragos in response. "If you go in there and subpoena somebody and they don't want to do it, and they're the victim, they shouldn't be retraumatized again."

Allen addressed the emotional complexity that arises out of the fact that a child was fathered by Ariel Castro with Amanda Berry.

"It is horribly complex," said Allen. "This six-year-old is probably very important to her and is an integral part of her life."

  • Dr. McDavid on the abducted women: "They're going to need a lot of therapy"

Dr. Lolita McDavid of Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital joined Piers Morgan to provide insight into how the three women will heal after their decade in captivity.

"They are very strong survivors," McDavid began. "And one of the things that I'm concerned about is that in all of the therapy that they're going to need, and they're going to need a lot of therapy, that perhaps in the beginning, they can start working on their therapy as a group, because they're really family to each other."

McDavid explained how the families envision their little girls coming home:

"I think what the families would like, and I can understand this, is they would like that 14-year-old girl who left for school that day to be the person who is going to walk through the door but that's not what's going to happen."

    10 yrs a long time. People grow. Who bought the clothes? Babies use diapers or pampers? Did anybody get sick in 10 yrs? One person did all and kept up with 3 women. Not likely.

      Totally,Sam,and dunno if you've seen my post below(noticed your comment just after posting),but I was flabbergasted when I heard only one's being charged;I'm pretty sympathetic to the police thus far,but we're just getting started with this
      and they're only charging ONE?

    Evening everyone.

    Just heard on BBC[00:15 GMT]only Ariel Castro gonna be charged in morning,the other two scot-free–but they must have KNOWN,and refusal to say in my book makes them complicit after the fact(certainly would in Scots Law on this one:all three of them's feet wouldn't touch the ground)–they've been down there TEN years,beaten,several miscarriages
    (punches to stomach,no doubt,b@$%@#ds,and IS that just Ariel?)...

    I'd like to see all three in the dock,and we can sort it out there.Peace.

    The other brothers and another family members who knew about these girls should be charged as accessories and fined or serve time. People who know about crimes are guilty as well.

    Piers , you let yourself down and take you credibility to a zero level with people like John Walsh having a son kidnapped does not make him an expert he is a loser that makes a living off the death of his son and has since day one.
    Then you add Vinnie responding to Airis I heard him screaming the same garbage after Casey Anthony was found innocent I think he just likes to say anything that will raise the ire of the American public... jerk loser that he is... I know he is a counterpart but....

    All you have to do is listen to the way the 911 operator handled the call with Amanda Berry as she was begging for help to know that over the last 10 years the neighbors DID call the cops to report strange behavior at the house. The fact that the cops have no record of it is of no surprise . . . again, just listen to the 911 "Emergency Service Dispatcher"

    On the other top topic of the day, I can't believe that no one can see why Jodi Arias didn't shoot Alexander while he was sleeping or while he had his back turned in the shower. She didn't do it then because she couldn't claim self defense. It's hard for someone to attack someone if his back is turned to that person. She felt that she could get away with it more if he was awake and facing her. She chose to have him sitting in the shower because she would have more of the upper hand over him. He was sitting a small enclosed area. Had she attacked him while he was standing, even with his back turned, he could have defended himself more. It was harder for him to defend himself while sitting.
