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.

"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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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?
