People have different opinions of what's funny, that's how. I mean, I'm not impervious to it, but hilarious? C'mon. Hey, I'm happy for those women, and I think the guy is a very decent man, so I'm not trolling. It's a relief, for sure.

I suppose I should see it more through US-eyes. Where opening your door to someone you don't know can already be an act of heroism in itself. Especially in Cleveland. If that is it, then sure - the guy's superman. Where I live, this is considered normal, though.

Sorry. He only saved two kidnapped teens and a child from years of rape and abuse. Not knowing what or who was in the house.

That's pretty bland. Not quite a Hero. I do that shiat every day.

I think he did more than just open a door. I could be wrong, but I think he said he heard screams and the girls hand poking through then proceeded to bust down the door like a boss.

This is ridiculously awful for those girls, and by the (unfortunate) law of averages, one has to wonder how many pervs with basement dungeons get away with it...that being said (as well as my hope that they get good help)....

I'm on the beer and ribs committee for this man, too. Set that man up for life-- sure, 'right place, right time', but there are people out there that would have ignored that girl without a thought. It happens more than anyone likes to think.

Kicking open your neighbor's door to save someone you don't know from a situation you have no idea about is a bit heroic, don'tchathink? For all he knew the neighbor could have came over or came out and tried to kill him to keep him quiet. He could have ran home and called the cops, but he took action and got her out!

Here is Charles' 911 call.  It. is EPIC.  Also mentions McDonald's.  Lots of great cursing. NSFW language


Thanks for sharing that, but why the f**k would they release that call without bleeping out the guy's phone number?

Now any of us could call him! I guess he'll be getting himself a new phone number.

Well, technically:

hysterical (adj.) 1610s, from Latin hystericus "of the womb," from Greek hysterikos "of the womb, suffering in the womb,"
 
2013-05-07 04:17:25 AM  

Coming on a Bicycle: Taylor Mental: bunner and Coming on a Bicycle, the both of you twat wipes need to find a sense of humor.

Yeah yeah sure. Look, I realize that everybody is feeling a little hysterical from the relief that this news brings. And I'm glad too. Goodness exists, and people that are presumed dead can re-surface, and that's a reassuring thing to know. But the hysteria in the public reaction is showing a bit, I feel. But then again, rescued missing attractive white females tend to have this effect, as even Fark itself acknowledges on its main page.


You missed the whole thing because you're focused on the white chick in sex slavery. Forget about that and watch Charles recount his act of heroism for the Channel 4 guy, it's hilarious.

I just wish we had a guy like that every time a pretty white girl goes missing. I'd be watching Nancy Grace every night.

We should spare no effort in publicly shaming Sylvia Browne. Not that I have a large amount of sympathy for the morons she scams, as they've got it coming, but that's no excuse to turn a blind eye on her shenanigans. If nothing else enough of an outcry may discredit her to the point where she's not making a living off of lies anymore. Unlikely, but worth the try.

Bathia_Mapes: This gentleman is the true definition of a hero.


"Gentleman?"

So just doing the 'right thing' these days makes one a hero?  I thought doing something 'heroic' meant doing something truly selfless, not just letting a tortured crime victim use your telephone.  If this man were living in a gated community in the suburbs, wearing a suit and tie, and was very 'well spoken,' people wouldn't be bandying the word 'hero' about.

Not trying to be 'word definition hero guy' here.

The true hero is the woman who escaped and ultimately saved the others.

She didn't escape. She was liberated. He kicked in the window/door and got her out. That's heroic in my book. He could have gone home and called the cops, but he took action then and there.

Imagine if Charles Ramsey did go back to his house and call 911 like we're all told to do.  When he called the dispatcher did NOT believe his story.  How long would they have taken to eventually get to the house based on his word alone? An hour? Four hours? Even with a frantic woman claiming to be Amanda Berry begging for police to hurry 'before he gets back' they took a really long time to get there according to Ramsey.

The police caught Ariel Castro at the nearby McDonald's.  It is entirely possible he was just out to pick up some food and would have returned shortly.  He could have easily returned home to find Amanda Berry out of her restraints or whatever and it he could have beat or killed her (or worse) right then before police came by.

So yes, Charles Ramsey is a hero.  Stop threadshiatting.
 
2013-05-07 05:07:01 AM  
Someone start a thing for Charles so we can all donate and make him a rich man.

I don't mean rich like returning the diamond ring inadvertently thrown into your cup and returning it rich, just sort of saving the white girl from years of torture and rape rich.
