Poor mum :(

She told me she named Amanda from a Conway Twitty song, "Amanda, the light of my life." She still bought Christmas presents for Amanda and sat on her bed listening to her music.

from http://www.stopsylvia.com/articles/montel_amandaberry.shtml

Hope at least someone saved the presents :(

NewportBarGuy: Scary thing? There are a LOT more of these who are never found. A whole lot more than anyone can imagine.


All snark aside, you are correct. Here are some scary stats. And I heard persistent rumors when I was homeless of well organized snatch/pedophile rings.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I wonder how many missing girls are currenty living in rape dungeons in suburban Anytown, USA. Probably a lot more than we'll ever know.


Agreed. The statisticson missing persons are astonishing.

Anyone know anything about the patches of the guy standing behind him? Front patch says 'Seargent at Arms' and rear patch says 'Ko-Ko' I think, but I've never heard of such a club.

"I knew something is wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man's arms.  Something is wrong here."

how is this not autotuned yet?

He's going to rethink that whole having a white friend thing, I bet.

It looks like the supposed kidnapper is hispanic... How many white guys you know named Ariel Castro?


No no no, remember the Zimmerman Principle: Hispanics are Hispanics until you want them to look bad.  Then they're white.

Free McDonalds for life for this guy, if they are smart. Also, it appears she was forced to give birth to a rape baby in captivity, if I read the articles correct.

Ariel Castro sounds Cuban. Looks Cuban, Hispanics are from Spain. Latino is Latin America/Mexico.

Hispania was in Europe.

Hispanic men kidnap and hold multiple women hostage for years
Talking point : Blame "white people"

Conservatives talk of securing southern border.
Talking point : Republicans hate brown people

Hispanic man shoots violent offender
Talking point : White gun owners hate black people.

Hispanic! It's the color you need it to be for every day's derp!

RatOmeter: eltejon: Fark does need an endowment or donation fund ...

Well, one random dude has set up a fundme for Charles (well, he *claims* he'll give it to Charles).


The idea would be a standing fund that anyone can contribute at anytime.  Then, when a hero approaches any voting contributor can nominate said "hero" or "hoagie" and if there is a sufficient majority who feel he/she is worthy, a beer/ rib/ hatchet contribution can be made.

filter: 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.


He helped her when he could have just walked away and not gotten involved, so, um.....STFU.

No, no, no. We can do this all day:

Escaping being raped doesn;t make one a hero. It's just a survival instinct. Nothing "heroic" about it.

I was looking at the patches below the Ko-Ko one. They say...

"I'd talk about my dick but that's a long story"

And

"I ain't Mr. Right but I'll fark you until he shows up."

Pause the video at 0:14 and 0:16 to see them.

This kind of shiat is what scares me to death when I can't get in touch with the GF


Don't worry.  She's resting comfortably.
 
2013-05-07 11:28:49 AM

lewismarktwo: 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.


On a side not, there's a whole lot of McDonalds in this story, so I'm guessing this trick wouldn't work in that neighborhood:

Fark rules.  He did something bad, so he's white.

If something bad had been done to him, or he was here illegally, he'd be brown.

bunner: Argyle82: Note to self, don't call 911 in Cleveland.  Could that guy care any less?

Well, true, he wasn't very worked up but these people wade through other people's drama every day for a whole shift.  It's got to start numbing you a little.


It's more like you have to go into it numb or some of those calls will kill your soul. Think of the operators that had to take calls from people in the towers on 9/11. Those operators take calls from people who die while they are on the phone with them sometimes. Cops develop gallows humor to get through it. Dispatchers don't have any time to socialize during their day so that's not an option.

So yeah the guy came off as a dick but I understand why.

Coming on a Bicycle: Don't want to shiat on the parade, but the guy sounds like a lucid man who just did what he had to do. And then had a few typical observations about it. A decent man, but no hero, and not stupifyingly funny like people make it out to be.

I don't consider either one of them a hero but he's awesome for helping her and, atm, I'd bet she considers him to be a hero.

Aquapope: Holy crap.  I never heard of this.  These 3 ladies were held for 9,10 and 11 years, since they were teenagers.  This is all kinds of farked up.  This is the very definition of farked up.

I love this guy.  He did the right thing and we should see him all over the place just because he's a crackup.  Cleveland should buy him a forever beer.



I just watched The Factory on netflix about a guy who was keeping girls in his basement trying to brainwash them into having babies.. at the time you wonder how something like that could actually happen, and then shiat like this comes to light. makes you think

Theory Of Null: kortex: That man is a damn hero. I hate to be morbid but I'm wondering about Stockholm syndrome.

Yeah I was thinking why didn't the other girls flee when he broke down the door. Then I was reading somewhere the dude had a dungeon in his basement with chains hanging from the ceiling. The other girls might have been tied up or just plain scared to leave. But then again who knows. The one girl looked like she had gold jewelry and a wedding ring on so maybe he married them in a some type of crazy wedding ceremony and psychologically just kept them there.



lol yeah that's exactly the plot of The Factory I was mentioning earlier... if anyone is a fan of Arrested Development.. Ann was John Cusack's daughter who gets kidnapped... hard to get into the movie thinking 'who kidnaps a plant?'

i think... and hear me out on this... that we just found Jules from Pulp Fiction in retirement.  close your eyes and listen to the 911 call again.  then do the same with the video.  it's samuel l jackson.

i guess when he quit working for mr. wallace he went to cleveland.  he's downgraded from kahuna burgers to McD's.  still kickin' in doors and droppin' f-bombs.  some things never change.
