This video is likely to get a ginormous amount of views so McDonald's should at least hook this guy up with a gift certificate for the name drop. He seems like quite a character and I bet it would a lot of fun to have some ribs and drinks with this guy. Also, he seems to pull off that hairstyle better than Lootie, but maybe it's just a contextual bias in that he was rescuing people instead of looting.

He was messing with a teenage girl
I caught him in the basement kissing her
I took a rubber hose and flogged his rump

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

He did something many people don't do.   He saw a situation which he thought may have been domestic violence and unlike many people he did not ignore it, but kicked the door in and helped the woman out.  It is unfortunate, sad and pathetic that still today many would ignore a woman or man in a situation which they believe is a domestic situation.

I wonder how many lives would me saved if more people didn't ignore or choose to turn a blind eye to violence or intimidation or threats because it is domestic or they think it is domestic.

He may not be a hero in that he was not risking his life but he is an example all men and women should try and follow.

Can you post a reference to an online dictionary link that defines "hero" along the lines of what you've written above?  Because, after looking it up for myself (and admittedly being surprised at just how loose the definition is - I thought it would at least involve putting oneself in harm's way, but it doesn't), I'm not seeing it.

Saving 3 girls from 10-some-odd years of kidnapping.  If that's not heroic, I'm not sure what would qualify.

Hmm. You don't want to "shiat on the parade" but here you are, pants down, ass hanging over the fence with drippy poo coming out.

Guest: He may not be a hero in that he was not risking his life but he is an example all men and women should try and follow.


I would go further and note that risking your life is not part of the definition of "hero".  I also thought it would be, but I could find no definition online that included that qualifier.  And if you think about it, why should it?  There are plenty of heroic acts that can be cited where lives were not on the line, so I don't know why this is such a common qualifier in the first place.

And, it's not necessarily true in this case anyway.  At the time he saw a woman screaming for help, how did he know his own life wasn't in danger if he acted?  He didn't.  The perp could have been right behind her with his shotgun leveled.  That would be the thought running through my mind.  Hopefully I'd kick in the door anyway.  I couldn't say for sure; I haven't been in this situation.  That what makes him a hero.  He acted where many would not have.  It doesn't need to be any more complex than that.

2013-05-07 06:36:31 AM  

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.


Yes, asshole, doing the right thing makes you a farking hero these days. Maybe you haven't noticed, but not farking many people bother to "do the right thing" even when it's right in their farking face and in their best interest to do so.

So yes, fark the fark Cynic brigade, may you all wither in bitterness. Guy was in the right place at the right time and did the right thing. Maybe that's not exceptional to you, but in a shiatty dying city like Cleveland, it's a farking miracle.

I agree his manner is effusive and terribly unpretentious and that has a comedy to it, but what the FARK snark brigade is trying to say is "poor black people talk funny".  This is people smirking at the fat kid in gym class.  It's a reassuring peek at the people we assume are not as "good"as us.  He was pretty funny in his excitement and unabashed honesty, though.

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.


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

Hispania was in Europe.

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.

"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.

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:

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.

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?'
