This book belongs in the category of legal fiction. He did not save those girls. I grew up around that neighborhood and I went up to talk to some of the people there. Angel Cordero, a Dominican, helped Amanda Berry when he saw her trying to get out of the front door that she had been kicking. Angel Cordero helped pull the wood off the door. Amanda ran in to get her child and then came out. Angel lead her to a neighbor lady who let Amanda Berry use her phone to call the police while Angel Cordero held the child. Charles Ramsey came over and then placed a 911 call but was told they were already on the phone with Amanda Berry. Angel left when the police arrived and Charles Ramsey played his song and dance for the camera, who immediately talked to him because Angel could not speak English. Stephanie Ramirez interviewed Angel in Spanish who told her that he was just happy to see them free and he did not care about taking credit for anything. He said the girls were the real heros.
Yes, Angel was right those three girls and Amanda's daughter are the true heros. Ramsey is just trying to get a good payday out of this whole thing and so is his writer. Repeat the lie long enough and people will believe it.
I remember the story in the Cleveland Scene about Snoop Dog's radio program when Ramsey was called and he asked Snoop Dog to stand by him because he was going to kick Angel Cordero's ass for claiming he helped Amanda Berry and that Ramsey did not help her. Some hero this guy is.
Funny how the writer says that the book is going to be about Ramsey growing up in a white neighborhood and his so called issues. Who cares?
What a worthless book this will be. He did nothing to help those girls. She was escaping and got help from the Dominican neighborhood, who could not speak English so the news media latched onto this guy. He tried to make himself into a hero when the real hero was Amanda Berry who saw here chance to escape and then went back in to get her child. Amanda then told the police that there were others inside. Amanda took a great risk using this opportunity to try to escape, had Castro arrived before she was able to escape, one can only image the horrors that she would have faced. This guy needs to a reality check.
Yes, she had it the worst, if worst can be used as a comparative word to what the others endured. She seems to have difficulty speaking as if it was the result of the beatings she received. I hope she is as strong as she seems. She definitely will be suffering from some post traumatic stress. I believe no truer words were spoken when she stood up courageously and said that Castro's hell has just begun. Michelle, I hope all is better for you and thank you Jones Day and the leadership in Cleveland for demonstrating that the community cares.
Charles Ramsey was no hero. The real hero was Angel Cordero. He helped break the door open for Amanda Berry. Charles Ramsey came later when Angel took Amanda to a lady to use her cellphone. Angel said he was not a hero and he was just happy that the girls were free and he did not care about who took credit for it. Angel did not receive any money, he just went about his life. He did not show boat and expect anything and he has not received anything in return.
Ramsey went on the radio saying he was going to kick Angel's ass and asked Snoop Dog to help. Ramsey is a joke and that's right Ramsey, I said it. Call Snoop Dog and ask him to come kick my ass.
I remember watching a TV news program and Ramsey had to cut it short because his posse was in the background telling him to cut it short.
Unbeknowst to Ramsey, fame is temporary and now the news crews are on to the East Cleveland serial killer and Ramsey's fame is faded and like his fame, so has his money.
Should any of us feel for him, no, too many people are out of work trying to survive themselves and not asking for handouts.
Goodbye, Ramsey and by the way, see if Snoop Dog will help a brother out.
Robert Smith, I just want him to tell the truth. He did not go over to the house and break the door open so she could get out. He called 911 when she was already on the phone calling 911 so why would he call 911 when she was calling but only to establish that he called, so what. The media liked him because they could get a story quickly in English.
Robert, I trust you would agree there is no reason for Ramsey to threaten to beat up Angel Cordero. Cordero said he helped the woman out of the house and her daughter and then he went away. Ramsey has his posse to hang with now and is seeking all kids of media attention.
But soon this will all be over and as I mentioned before the most important thing is that these girls are now free.
Yes Camilo Jose Villa, but the media is not threatening Angel Cordero.
