umm maybe Ohio does things differently, but here in PA they don't foreclose for taxes, they just sell the property at a tax sale.  Entirely different process than foreclosure.

wow that basement is bigger than my HOUSE

Could just be lazy writing too.  Although, to be fair, the rate of foreclosure in Cleveland is so high, the author may have just assumed that the property was in foreclosure.

Wow, I wonder what would've happened to those girls when (or before) the owners were evicted?

760 sq ft?  That goes for about $3000/mo in Manhattan.

I was going to ask why a 4 bedroom house was appraised at 33k but that neighborhood looks like Detroit.

done in one.  My first thought when I saw this hero.

Is that 'swept back 'fro' effect the result of braiding?

I saw him live on Good Morning America and he had me rolling.

I also think this was East Side, which is pretty much a war zone.

False, near west side, Ohio City.

Nope, this is the near south west side; not great but not the urban jungle that is Glenville.

Where the Mac Donells at?  I looked on Google maps, and the nearest Mickey D's is over a block away.  How'd he see the girl struggling to get out of the house if he was at the Mac Donells?

They have this thing where you can buy the food, leave with it, then eat it at home.  They even have drive-thru's so you don't have to get out of your car! lulz

Why mention McDonald's then?  The story coulda started "I was walking past this house when..."

The way it was explained, it had me thinking he was at McDonald's and saw this girl trying to get out of a house across the street.
 
2013-05-07 01:28:37 PM
I love the interview.

I REALLY love when he hears the police siren, the look on his face, that look of a guy with outstanding warrants maybe???

"I heard screaming.  I'm eating my McDonald's, I come outside, and I see this girl trying to get out of a house."

He's at home eating his take-out, hears screaming, and goes to investigate.

His quote about knowing something was wrong when "a pretty little white girl ran into the arms of a black man" was very sad.  Was just very striking.  I know he didn't mean to hold a mirror up to society, but he farking nailed it.

Thank God for Charles Ramsey having the heart and courage to rescue those women.

Someone should tell him to type his name into youtube. I currently see in the autocomplete box: "charles ramsey 911", "charles ramsey piano" (something else), "charles ramsey remix", "charles ramsey interview", "charles ramsey auto tune", and "charles ramsey interview remix".

I bet that'd be really surreal for him.

I remember when DeJesus was kidnapped. Posters were up all over the place, including in Lakewood. I'm just glad they are alive.

Indeed.  Along those same lines, did you notice in the video when he heard sirens and appeared alarmed?  I would be too if I were black.  Hell, I'm white and I have no trust or faith in police whatsoever.  It's not a happy reality, but it is the one that exists at present.

Well the beatings the cops gave them before they made it to the precinct might factor into that.

CLEVELAND -- The women found safe last night on Seymour Avenue were forced to have sex with their captors, resulting in up to five pregnancies, several police sources tell Channel 3 News.

One of those sources tells the Investigator Tom Meyer that the  captors would beat the pregnant girls. Both sources say the babies didn't survive.
 The sources say it is unclear what happened following the pregnancies.


Police have arrested three men following the discovery of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight on Monday evening.
Investigators are going through the home for clues, including the backyard where they found "disturbed" dirt. The sources did not know whether that was related to the pregnancies.

if what this is implying turns out to be true, then there is the agrivated murder charge to bring on the death penalty.

How ironic. The man who rescued the prisoner is himself a prisoner of a much larger victimizer. And there's no one who can rescue him.

I helped build a house for humanity across the street from his house in the nineties. Apparently a friend had a family business right next door to his, and my boss's parents' church was on that street. It wasn't a nice neighborhood but I never would have expected this.
