Canton: Heineken guy's a hero in his own right. I mean, what was safer to drink in a major flood situation like that? Water or beer? He knew how to stay safely hydrated, and no doubt passed on the valuable knowledge.


smart and funny. well played. and so true, even if heinekin sucks.except the dark version. the dark version inspired me to brew it . i falied but still fell in love with brewing

Exactly. My mom's from Alabama, and I spent many summers down there growing up. We ate watermelon and catfish and fried chicken. Hell, my grandma fried everything - she even fried the biscuits left over from breakfast. And if you want a real stereotype-breaker, we're white (the parts that aren't Native American), and my mom literally picked cotton in the fields of Alabama when she was young.

muck4doo: You know I have much respect for you, so lets start there. I have seen nothing to say Ramsey wasn't the one to kick down the door. He said in the interview there was the neighbor across the street was involved. He's proclaiming he's not a hero. He doesn't want reward money, but he was there to help. He did. And now different media like smokinggun.com are now here to crucify him. Do you not see anything wrong with this? Help someone. Get proclaimed a hero. And now Smokinggun.com is here to expose all your former demons to the public. It's disgusting.


Well the guy who was there first, who Charles said he saw over there which is why he went to help, said Charles didn't do anything and is lying. It sounds like Charles probably heard a commotion and went over to see what was happening, and he did call 911, but he isn't the sole person who rescued the girls and saved them which is what he was made out to be.

I'm not sure why you are mad at the smoking gun, they are just reporting facts. The facts are that Charles Ramsay doesn't pay child support and has been arrested multiple times over multiple years for domestic violence.

I have a lot of respect for you too, of course, but we disagree here on what is relevant (smoking gun) and if CR is a hero (I say probably not). What we can both agree on is that CR is a hilarious meme its a good thing those women are safe now.

From what was reported, it sounded like he was poor and ate a lot of his meals at the house across the street from the crime scene, so he probably didnt have a cell phone.

So after all those arrests and color glossy photos with the circles and arrows on the back describing what each one is, maybe he's rehabilitated himself and does the right thing because it's the right thing.

It's really easy to do the right thing when it's clear there is a good course of action and you're not emotionally involved messing up your decision process.

Still, some people are "bad" and won't do the right thing when it's easy. Thus, this guy is still okay despite a checkered past. Hero for being human? Nawww... but he's okay. He did the right thing when faced with other possibilities. This is something every decent citizen should do... only bad people wouldn't.

You can always add another hero. This isn't "Highlander" where there can only be one. Ramsey is a hero. Berry is a hero. If there is another, let it be told. I'm disgusted that smokinggun.com is trying to tear this guy down, and is a site supported by Fark. Someone needs to investigate the people of smokinggun.com and find out if they are really the virgins and saints they claim to be. People make mistakes. I find it disgusting when someone does something good, these douchebags immediately try to find something bad in their past to take away any praise for that. Like Smokinggun.com are the shining angels overlooking and judging us all, and are the ultimate judges on human kind.

Will have to try that next time I'm there. Usually when i was in the area would go for soul food for lunch. There was a great place on telegraph, but can't remember the name, but it was in Berkeley. Maybe the same place? It's been years. When i was working nights i would go to Daves Coffee Shop on Broadway in Oakland. Best cup of coffee and breakfast plate in the Bay Area.

Sure, and if Ramsay was really there and did what he said, then he helped out. The guy who was there first says Ramsay is full of shiat. Right now its just the two of their words so take whichever side you want. The fact that Ramsay admits he wasn't there first, and the guy who was there first says Ramsay is full of shiat, plus the evidence (I know you dont agree with) that Ramsay is a piece of shiat, leads me to believe he isn't a hero at all and played himself up to the media.

I mean just look at his different interviews, he contradicts himself a lot. My two cents, if for some reason Amanda Berry ever gives a flying fark at all to say if Ramsay was a hero or not, will be the only way we ever know for sure.

Then:

Cordero said he and other neighbors helped Ramsey break down the door of the Seymore Ave. home.

robohobo: There's an article up on Yahoo right now about how everyone's a racist for being amused by Ramsey's interview vids.


Good Lord, the need to manufacture news out of and dissect everything.
From the link: "Amid the hood backdrop - the gnarled teeth, the dirty white tee, the slang, the shout-out to McDonald's - we miss the fact that Charles Ramsey is perfectly lucid and intelligent."

To the self-important writer: Speak for yourself. Why the "we"? Who told you I missed that? Because I didn't. What might be more important is that you just assumed that I did, in your never-ending quest to see racism everywhere around you and to make sure that it shows up where it was not before.

I taught inner-city kids and many (not all) of them knew exactly how to speak and write correct, standard English, and usually did with me and often with each other. Many times when they used ebonics, it was strategic and intended to be funny, and they knew how funny it was. One of our smartest eighth-graders would routinely and hilariously tattle on a good friend to me within his earshot and one of these times, her eyes wide with fake outrage, she pointed at him and shouted, "Him CURSE!" It had everybody in stitches. Much of Ramsey's storytelling is clearly intended to be humorous and light. But I guess nobody's laughing with him, because racism and we simply all must be laughing at him. The fact that 1) he was funny, and 2) we laughed just CAN'T cover it all. There must be something deeper, and it must strike at the very heart of American society and produce many page-views.
