Charles Ramsey: "Take That Reward And Give It To (The Girls)"



RAMSEY: See, that's why now I'm having trouble sleeping. See, up until yesterday, the only thing that kept me from losing sleep was the lack of money. See what I'm saying? So now that that's going on, and I could have done this last year, not this hero stuff, just do the right thing

=snip=


COOPER: Has the FBI said anything about a reward or anything? Because there was that - there was a reward for finding her.

RAMSEY: I tell you what you do, give it to them. Because if folks been following this case since last night, you been following me since last night, you know I got a job anyway. Just went picked it up, paycheck. What that address say? That say?

COOPER: I don't have my glasses. I'm blind as a bat.

RAMSEY: 2203 Seymour. Where are them girls living? Right next door to this paycheck. So yes, take that reward and give it to -that little girl came out the house and she was crying. And I'm looking at her, right, I'm like your mama trying to help you, girl, shut up. I don't know, right. And she's like I want my daddy. And I said, who's her daddy? She said Ariel.

COOPER: She said that.

RAMSEY: Yes. I said well, how's that possible? Because you wouldn't - if you got kidnapped, he was having sex with you? Oh, Jesus. That little girl is his? Now we want to hurt you.

COOPER: You felt that?

RAMSEY: Bro, this will be a different interview, I told you that, if we had known that. Man, I would be facing triple life.

COOPER: Wow. I'm glad it turned out this way.

8. I think the line where he said

"when a white girl runs into a black man's arms then something must be wrong" is going to go to be remembered for awhile.

11. Because I was focusing on what he was saying about the reward

And how he wanted the girls to have it, even though he's so broke it keeps him up at night.

Also, the excerpt was already over the recommended amount without getting into trouble with copyright issues and it's there in the video and the full transcript anyway, if people go and read it.

Is that all you got out of the post?

RAMSEY: Now we're both calling 911. Now she gets through and I get through. She deal with a moron, me, too.

COOPER: You said there - what do you mean, a moron?

RAMSEY: Idiot.

COOPER: I heard the 911 call for her

RAMSEY: Imbecile.

COOPER: And the woman kept

RAMSEY: Shouldn't have a damn job.

COOPER: The woman was like hang up and wait for the police.

RAMSEY: Really. How about stay on and I will talk to you until they get there?

16. "How about stay on and I will talk to you until they get there?" He's right to ask that question.

Cleveland will investigate 9-1-1 call from Amanda Berry

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cleveland's safety director issued a statement Tuesday giving assurance that the actions of the dispatchers who handled the 9-1-1 calls regarding Amanda Berry are under review.

Berry's call to 9-1-1 Monday afternoon after she escaped captivity has been criticized by online commenters and social websites.

Martin L. Flask, director of the city's Department of Public Safety, said his department is aware of the criticism the dispatcher received for his rude attitude toward Charles Ramsey, the man who called 9-1-1 after he heard Berry screaming "Help, help me out" while trying to escape from the Seymour Avenue home of Ariel Castro.

=snip=

"While the call-taker complied with policies and procedures which enabled a very fast response by police, we have noted some concerns which will be the focus of our review, including the call-taker's failure to remain on the line with Ms. Berry until police arrived on the scene.

"Please be assured that this matter will be investigated, and if necessary, appropriate corrective action taken."

15. Well done, Mr Ramsay.

Even though he's poor, he's willing to give any reward to the young women. Wow.

18. Best. Hero. EVAH!

One of the best interviews ever. This simple, honest, courageous man is what America has been missing for a long time. We need a lot more Charles Ramsey's in this world.

He didn't reach for a gun, he didn't look the other way, he just plain was there for her.

Charles Ramsey proudly states he is a Christian, and he walks the talk. He is what Christianity should be all about - not pomp and ritual, not politics, not councils who make rules and decide what is "truth." And it surely isn't about arming yourself to the teeth and demanding prayer in schools. It is about love and caring about your neighbor as yourself.

Personally, I am humbled and inspired by Mr. Ramsey's goodness. He is quite a teacher.

And, with Mother's Day this Sunday, I might add that whoever raised this man - be it his parents, grandparents, or whoever else - did one fine job.
