Oh, awesome. The whole time I'm thinking the only way this could be better is if Anderson did the grab-shake...
 
2013-05-08 08:50:09 AM  
I know this is about Charles Ramsey but what stuck with me the most was he said "children" not child and "grandchildren" not "grandchild" when referring to who played in the yard.

I'm afraid this is about to get worse. Only one kid came out. One is unaccounted for.
 
2013-05-08 09:00:36 AM  
Anderson looked very uncomfortable talking to him.
 
2013-05-08 09:01:15 AM  
I want to see the interview with the dispatcher.... how will that look... the day Amanda Barry was almost NOT rescued because " there wasnt a car available"... twat.
 
2013-05-08 09:01:41 AM  
Did he steal the Heineken?
 
2013-05-08 09:06:10 AM  
"Dance, monkey, dance for the twenty-four hour news maw!"
 
2013-05-08 09:08:03 AM  
Damn this is heart breaking more than hilarious. I think this guy is awesome. Still has some classic lines in there, bro.

BalugaJoe: Anderson looked very uncomfortable talking to him.


Did you not see how non-white this guy is?
 
2013-05-08 09:09:49 AM  
Anderson Cooper: Do you feel like an hero?

Charles Ramsey: No. No No.I'm a Christian. I'm an American. I'm just like you. We bleed the same blood. We put our pants on the same way.

"You gotta put that being a coward and I don't want to get involved in nobody's business, you gotta put that away bro.
It's about cojones.

/Damn it's dusty in here.
 
2013-05-08 09:10:53 AM  
"He wasn't no freak of nature!".....  and then Cerrone's Supernature started playing in my mind for some odd reason
 
2013-05-08 09:11:36 AM  
"I'd be facing triple life". Hah. I believe him, too. Except no jury would convict a guy this awesome.
 
2013-05-08 09:13:44 AM  
This is a great guy. Anderson Cooper talked about  possibly collecting some reward money, and he told them they should give that money to the girls.
 
2013-05-08 09:16:11 AM  
Bro, Bro.
 
2013-05-08 09:19:47 AM  
"Here I come with my half eaten Big Mac".  Hero, indeed.  Seriously though, this guy is awesome and deserves a reward of some kind.
 
2013-05-08 09:21:58 AM  
Mentioned 2 little girls playing in the yard. Much more to this story.

He had two daughters with his wife, who divorced him and got custody before all this. Since then one daughter had a baby she tried to kill and is in prison. Who knows about the other daughter. It could be these grandchildren he saw don't include any of his captives' offspring.
 
2013-05-08 09:25:35 AM  
Oh yeah, and the daughter who tried to slice open her baby would never tell anyone who the father was.
 
2013-05-08 09:27:42 AM  
Love him calling out both 911 dispatchers as morons, idiots, & imbeciles.

I'm a non-Christian and a Canadian. I bleed wine and put my pants on both legs at a time... and I'd do this. I'd like to think all humans would, but that would be giving most humans way too much credit.
 
2013-05-08 09:32:20 AM  
"He put his mail in my mail" ... Anderson almost swooned.
 
2013-05-08 09:34:47 AM  

SlothB77: Bro, Bro.


... Bro
 
2013-05-08 09:35:00 AM  
This guy is as real as real gets.

Kudos.
 
2013-05-08 09:36:16 AM  
Charles Ramsey is a really cool dude and a great guy!
 
2013-05-08 09:36:26 AM  
This guy is awesome. And he's probably the very best thing that could happen for those women in this situation. TOTALLY takes the focus off of them so they can do what they need to do: be out of the spotlight for awhile, reconcile with their families, start to undergo therapy and come to terms with what happened to them.

The last thing they need right now is the media pressure and Charles Ramsey takes it off of them entirely.
 
2013-05-08 09:36:34 AM  
And the creators of "Bed Intruder" give us:

"Dead Giveaway".
 
2013-05-08 09:37:06 AM  
That guy could have pretty much any kind of show on TV and I'd watch.  Cooking, reading the news, interviewing celebrities.  He's like an awesome magnifier.
 
2013-05-08 09:39:22 AM  

Jim from Saint Paul: And the creators of "Bed Intruder" give us:

Saw a few bad ones already, but that one's awesome.

/hope Stewart or Colbert get Ramsey on.

In the interview linked, he said the little girl identified Ariel as her dad (and wanted to see him).

So one of them was at least. Kid didn;t know any better.

This Amanda chick has more intestinal fortitude then I could ever imagin having in a hundred life times.

If he had a cooking show, it would be epic. Or something along the lines of a Bourdain show. Send him around the world to experience stuff 'hey, what the hell is this shiat, bro ?'
 
2013-05-08 10:26:42 AM  
He doesn't even want the reward money. He wants them to give it to the kidnapping victims. I'm getting teary-eyed thinking about that. This man is a hero.
 
2013-05-08 10:28:33 AM  
I originally parsed this headline as "Alice Cooper's Interview w/ Charles Ramsey".  I was mildly disappointed.  That might have been uniquely amusing.
 
2013-05-08 11:07:10 AM  
Best. Interview. Ever.

Yesterday, a friend said that he did not think Charles should be considered a hero.  I normally a very hesitant to use this title; however, we live in a society were some people can see a child be raped in a shower and walk away and call their dad for advice.  I consider him a hero because, even though he thought it was a domestic situation, he still broke the door down and helped her out...

Bravo for doing the right thing - too many people do not want to get involved anymore.
 
2013-05-08 11:27:47 AM  
This got me laughing:

AC: What do you mean by moron?
CR: Idiot... imbecile... Why do you have that damn job...

domino324: He doesn't even want the reward money. He wants them to give it to the kidnapping victims. I'm getting teary-eyed thinking about that. This man is a hero.


totally, he's loosing sleep over money but knows the girls could use it more than he does after their ordeal. I think a lot of people would personally like to reward this guy for being a beacon for humanity, not just because of how he rescued the girls, but how he's been handling the publicity

Wild Eyed and Wicked: Bravo for doing the right thing - too many people do not want to get involved anymore.


And, scarily enough, some of those people who don't want to get involved are apparently police. And I'm not just referring to the stories coming out about other instances where police were called to investigate things at that house. Human nature is sometimes amazing and sometimes horrifying.
 
2013-05-08 11:55:09 AM  
Real American Heros these days show up to the scene with a half eaten big mac.
 
2013-05-08 12:12:56 PM  
This man gives me hope for society. While we elevate and idolize the most horrible and shallow people like the Kardashians or the "Real Housewives", this man demonstrates the best in humanity both by helping those girls and how he handles the notoriety from it. Bravo!

Truncks1: This is a great guy. Anderson Cooper talked about  possibly collecting some reward money, and he told them they should give that money to the girls.


Yep.  He could probably really use that reward money too but just like his helping those girls, his actions are selfless.

I kinda doubt he lives in the sort if neighborhood where you want a lot of people to know you suddenly have a lot of money.
 
2013-05-08 12:40:41 PM  
Hopefully, when the media finds whatever skeleton (s) Mr. Ramsey has in his closet, they choose not to report on it...  Like many, I rather like this dude and would like to know him just as a hero.

jpo2269: Hopefully, when the media finds whatever skeleton (s) Mr. Ramsey has in his closet, they choose not to report on it...  Like many, I rather like this dude and would like to know him just as a hero.


All that matters right now is that someone had the chance to do the right thing and farking did it.
 
2013-05-08 01:24:20 PM  
I love that they relocated him to somewhere in the burbs (unless he went to stay with family or friends, then I stand corrected). But that is definitely nowhere near where he's from. There's an actual yard and space between the houses. The houses look newer so I guess it would be a further out burb then somewhere like Shaker Heights or Lakewood.
 
2013-05-08 01:25:41 PM  
This guy should probably be the poster child for the failure of the American education system.  He's obviously reasonably intelligent, but the education seems a little lacking.

Sorry, was just talking about the grandchildren spotting playing in the yard possibly being his actual grandchildren, not questioning that the child with Amanda was hers.
 
2013-05-08 01:48:30 PM  
AC reminded me of that commercial where the guy interveiws those kids.

/hold on.I'm watching this
 
2013-05-08 01:53:00 PM  
I hope that someone can give him a good job as a reward, seems like a stand up man albeit a bit hyper, but you can imagine what it has to be like for him.  Hope he keeps his head on straight.
 
2013-05-08 02:43:28 PM  
he gave his address out when he read the paycheck label.  i'm thinking there will be a lot of thank-you cards, gift baskets, monetary rewards, and letters of support heading this man's way.  he doesn't want credit for what he did; he's content with having just done the right thing when a bad situation landed his way, more than many would have done (and non-americans who say they don't know why this is unusual, fyi... living in a tough neighborhood like that, it's a matter of survival to keep your head down and don't get involved).  even if he wants nothing in return, he farking deserves something.
 
2013-05-08 02:52:47 PM  

Frozboz: "Here I come with my half eaten Big Mac".  Hero, indeed.  Seriously though, this guy is awesome and deserves a reward of some kind.


and I say "what's up?"
 
2013-05-08 02:57:21 PM  
McDonalds should temporarily rename the Big Mac "The Big Charles" in his honor -- same ingredients, but you get two brass balls as a prize with every order.
