wait, so a person living in a $30,000 house in a cleveland ghetto may have made some mistakes earlier in his life?  Well, i for one am shocked by this.

Also, he told anderson cooper he was in his living room eating a big mac when he saw another man run towards the screaming woman.  then he came out to help.  he told anderson cooper another man was on the scene first.  The other guy doesn't speak english, hence he isn't going to understand a reporter asking him questions in english.

"Hero, here!  We've got a hero!  Everyone come quickly to tear this motherf*cker apart!  Quick, before anyone feels good about anything!"

Consider that the media is foaming at the mouth to tear apart a guy that specifically gave credit to Angel and openly refused the idea of reward money, maybe we don't need to tear this guy apart.  Maybe we can just laugh at his sense of humor and artistry in the medium of profanity and feel good that every once in a while, people will do the right thing just at the right time and make a huge difference in a stranger's life.

Yes! VERY good!

Let the message go forth: WE WILL NOT TOLERATE HEROES. Tear him down. Burn him. Make him pay.

Can't have a black hero in this story. No sireee. Not in Murica!

I'm still waiting for Fox News to say he was born in Kenya.
 
2013-05-09 11:30:56 AM  
I don't care if he is smart, I dont care if he was the first on the scene! That mo fo is entertaining! And that counts for a lot in my book!!

I farking love this guy.  He never claimed he was a hero, and denied it when Anderson Cooper tried to call him one. He didn't want any reward money even though he's not in the best of financial situations (although he does have a paycheck!). He gave at least two of the best interviews I've seen, and he's funny as hell.

Does this mean the women have to go back?
 
2013-05-09 11:34:46 AM  
Great.  We get inundated with these stories for awhile, until Amanda herself, via proxy or personally, sets it straight.

I helped her.  It was me.

Where's my 15 minutes!!!!!!?????!?!?!?!?!

Probably.  Or maybe just a do-over.

Black heroes should be limited to cartoons and movies. Can't let them get uppity and be seen doing anything white folks should be doing.

nope.  we have to Baituk up this shiat.  someone feels good or has success, fark 'em!  We need to make everyone miserable.  Misery and scandal sells news papers!

I was telling my wife this yesterday. "Did you see that guy the media portrayed as a hero? Did you see how he reacted to the police sirens? In a day or two someone will go through his history and find out he's an ex-felon."

It's almost a requirement that this happens 2 days after the events.

Day 0: Interview hero.
Day 1: Tell everyone how much of a hero he was, "He's an internet sensation!"
Day 2: Rip down the hero. "Did you know this guy smokes pot and beat his kids?" (I don't know what he did.)

you were close. he smoked his kids and beat his pot.
 
2013-05-09 12:27:56 PM  
Whatever, he's hilarious to watch.  And he DID mention another neighbor in at least one interview, said the dude was either confused or didn't speak much English, said he looked at him and said "It's a girl, man"
 
2013-05-09 12:28:36 PM  
If only more people in his situation would just do nothing and walk away, the world would be a better place, right, media?

It's the only way to keep the story alive, because RATINGS!

Isn't this the part where they harass the victims? Or does that come later?

OMG A SECOND NEIGHBOR HAS HIT THE HEADLINES!
 
2013-05-09 01:12:15 PM  
Wait. This is TV, and like any good sitcom on TV a person can only have one neighbor.

"But the one thing they love more than a hero is to see a hero fail, fall, die trying. In spite of everything you've done for them, eventually they will hate you. "
 
2013-05-09 01:13:01 PM  
He was the best interview ever.  They played the part on Good Morning America when he talks about the cute white girl running towards a black man and then he knew something was very wrong... that's how you know something's wrong when the white girl runs to a black man.

Stephanopolous was visibly uncomfortable, great TV

Please let the "real hero" be an illegal alien. Please let the "real hero" be an illegal alien.

For the lulz.
 
2013-05-09 01:19:42 PM  
Man the media just couldn't wait to dig up dirt on this guy huh? I can't remember the last "hero" that people went so far out of their way to try to marginalize. Thinly veiled racism.
 
2013-05-09 01:19:51 PM  
You know who I bet doesn't give a good goddamn what sins either of these rescuers committed in their past? The people who were farking rescued.
 
2013-05-09 01:20:13 PM  
If my memory does not betray me, the guy said he does not want any finders reward and wants them to go toward the well beings of the ladies.

Also, most people would have done the same thing if they got the feeling some woman is being kept captive. So, I don't see any point of the whole story.
 
2013-05-09 01:20:54 PM  
I do like that so far nothing is contradicting this guy, just the rest of the news about him. They're not tearing down a hero, they're tearing down a story ABOUT a hero. It's like idolizing Superman but not liking a single comic, cartoon, or movie he's ever been in.

/I think if we give him his McDonalds and move on, the occasional appearance on radio or podcast will be awesome. If it starts turning into some dummy ambushing him with questions about his record, I'm worried about losing even that.
 
2013-05-09 01:21:07 PM  
We have a second rescuer! A second rescuer on the grassy knoll!

You can still help out; the moral here is, once it's all over, DISAPPEAR. Don't do interviews. Don't come forward for police investigations, or to give testimony at trial. Remember, they have to know who you are to subpoena your ass.
 
2013-05-09 01:27:24 PM  
What the f*ck.

So...uh, wrong tab.

If I ever meet one of these journalist douche bags who thinks this is the story to report, gonna kick him/her in the nuts.
 
2013-05-09 01:27:36 PM  
He was a top 10 interview. Yesterday on the radio they were talking about him playing parts of the interview and they did say how they felt sorry for him because they knew something like this would happen. I'd stil buy him a beer.
 
2013-05-09 01:28:39 PM  
Ramsey was constantly using the pronoun "we" while he was interviewed, including in relation to the door being kicked open.  He also specifically mentioned another neighbor.  He wasn't lying about anything.  He just probably didn't know too much about the neighbor because apparently the other guy has limited English language skills.  Sounds reasonable to me.
 
2013-05-09 01:28:51 PM  
The racists who keep trying to smear this hero need to kill themselves. How can you not love the guy after seeing that hilarious auto tune remix? The way he speaks such fluent ebonics is comedy gold. I swear some people just have no sole.
 
2013-05-09 01:30:10 PM  
This reminds me of when they dragged that 'I like turtles' kid through the mud. Turned out he was a bedwetter. O'Reilly really put him in his place on the Factor.

Should you also wear a cape and cowl? Maybe a domino mask?
 
2013-05-09 01:30:20 PM  
So in the past the guy has made mistakes, been convicted and served his punishment.  The guy did right this time, that's all I care about.
