You guys, meet my new hero in life, Charles Ramsey of Cleveland, Ohio. Charles was just minding his own business, eating some McDonald’s, when he heard a woman screaming for help from his neighbor’s house. He called the police — who he said didn’t take him seriously initially — and then decided to kick in the door to the house, eventually freeing two women, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus. The two women had been missing for nearly a decade each, as was a third woman, Michele Knight, who was was found nearby with the alleged kidnapper, Ramsey’s neighbor Ariel Castro.
Ramsey is now being heralded as a hero for taking matters into his own hands and responding to Berry’s cries for help. In addition to bravely saving lives (all three women seem to be in good health), Ramsey also gives an amaaaaaazing interview, and he has some harsh words for Castro. “You got some big testicles to pull this off, bro,” he told a local news reporter in the clip avod. “I barbecue with this dude! We eat ribs and whatnot!” Seriously, you think you know a person…
And as for how he knew to take Berry seriously? “I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms,” Ramsey said. “Dead giveaway! Dead. Giveaway.” [HyperVocal; Cleveland.com]
