    EXCLUSIVE: Anderson Cooper interview with Charles Ramsey

     (edit/transcript repeated 2 posts down)

    Tonight on AC360°, Charles Ramsey – the man who freed Amanda Berry, Georgina DeJesus and Michele Knight, spoke with Anderson Cooper.

    Ramsey tells Cooper that his neighbor of about a year was “cool, he was no freak of nature” but yesterday he heard a girl scream “like a car had hit her kid.” Amanda Berry told him “I’ve been trapped in here and he won’t let me out. It’s me and my baby.” Berry, he tells Cooper "was well-groomed. She didn't look like she was kidnapped… That's what threw me off."

    Ramsey says he doesn’t feel like a hero, and when asked about a rumored reward, he shows Cooper his paycheck and says “give it to them (the girls).”

    THIS IS A RUSH FDCH TRANSCRIPT. IT MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

    COOPER:  Well, I just came back from interviewing Charles Ramsey just a short time ago.  Here's some of that interview.

    (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

    COOPER:  And so you moved in about a year ago.  You'd seen Ariel Castro around, right?

    CHARLES RAMSEY:  When I moved there, only because he was my neighbor.

    COOPER:  Right.

    RAMSEY:  You know what I mean?

    COOPER:  What was he like?

    RAMSEY:  Cool.  He wasn't no freak of nature.  He was like me and you, because he talked about the same things you talk about.

    COOPER:  Right.

    RAMSEY:  You talk about you.  You know what I mean?  You know, regular stuff, bro.

    COOPER:  So yesterday, what happened?

    RAMSEY:  I'm going to tell it all.  Around 3:00, I was on my porch and the mailman put his mail in my mail.  I looked at it like here's his mail when he come home.  Couple of minutes later, he pulled up.  He checked the mailbox, grabbed his paper.  Before he went in the house, I said Ariel, here goes your mail.  We just had the same conversation when I hand him the mail.  He said, they can't get it right.  I said, damn postal service.  That's it.

    He left.  I jumped on my bike, went to McDonald's.  Came back home, I'm in my house, but I'm in the living room and I'm right by the front door, because I'm looking out the front door, and man, this girl screamed like a car had hit a kid, which made me, you know, stop eating, what the hell was that.  You know, so when I got up, I saw this - my neighbor across the street, he run across the street and I'm, like - I'm thinking, where you going, because ain't nobody next door because I just saw Ariel leave.

    And I know ain't nobody over there.  Heard that girl scream and saw him run across the street, and I went outside and wondered what he was doing, and - Amanda said, I'm stuck in here, help get me out.  So he - guy don't know English that well or panicked, he just looked at me and it's a girl.  And that's all he did.  So here I come with my, you know, half eaten Big Mac and I looked and I said well, what's up.

    And she's like I've been trapped in here, he won't let me out, me and my baby.  I said well, we ain't going to talk no more, come on.  I'm trying to get the door open, I can't, because he torture chambered it some kind of way and locked it up, right?  So I did what I had to do and kicked the bottom of the door, and she crawled out of it.  She grabs her baby, which threw me off, all right, so fine.  I got some girl and her kid.

    COOPER:  What did she look like?  I mean, what was she wearing?

    RAMSEY:  Jumpsuit.  She had a white tank top on, rings on, mascara.  You know, she was well groomed.  She didn't look like she was kidnapped.  That's what I'm saying.  That's what threw me off.  She was like I'm in here trapped.  I'm like, well, you don't look kidnapped so maybe you got a boyfriend problem.  But I'm thinking I know who lives here and he's 50 something.  You can't be the boyfriend problem.  You know?  It can't be him.  Maybe you're dating his son.

    COOPER:  And you'd never seen her before?

    RAMSEY:  Bro –

    COOPER:  In the year that you had been there?

    RAMSEY:  Bro, that man, listen, never.  That woman didn't come out the house.  The only kids that came out the house were two little girls.  They played in the backyard.  He had two dogs and my - where I live naturally is next door, my bedroom was upstairs so when I hear kids playing, I know it's them.  They did the same thing, play in the backyard for a couple of hours, go back in the house.  Same thing every day.

    The neighborhood knows them as his grandchildren.  So no big deal.  He had his grandkids over all the time, I thought.

    COOPER:  Amanda Berry then, what, asked to call 911?

    RAMSEY:  Mm-hmm.  And I took her to my house.  Now I'm nervous as hell so I'm fumbling with my phone, so I finally get it right.  She can't wait and I don't blame her.  So what I do was tell her go across the street and use their phone.  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?

    COOPER:  Right.

    (END VIDEOTAPE)

    COOPER:  That's Charles Ramsey.  I'll have more of my interview with Charles Ramsey after this break.

    Let us know what you think.  Follow me on Twitter right now @andersoncooper.  So many questions still to be answered here.

    Also ahead, we're going to hear from a young woman who along with her friends once called 911 because they say they saw a naked woman in the suspect's backyard.  She says police thought they were joking, didn't take it seriously.  We'll be right back.

    (COMMERCIAL BREAK)

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    RAMSEY:  Heard her screaming, I'm eating my McDonald's, I come outside, and I see this girl going nuts trying to get out of a house.  So I go on the porch.  I go on the porch and she says, help me get out, I've been here a long time.  So you know, I figured it's a domestic violence dispute.  So I opened the door and we can't get in that way because how the door is, it's so much that a body can't fit through, only your hand.  So we kicked the bottom and she comes out with a little girl, and she says call 911, my name is Amanda Berry.

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    COOPER:  If not for the actions of Charles Ramsey and another neighbor who helped him, the three women may still be in that house here in Cleveland.

    Here's more of my exclusive interview with Charles Ramsey.

    (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

    COOPER:  So you call 911.

    RAMSEY:  Sure did.

    COOPER:  How quickly did the police get there?

    RAMSEY:  You know what, they got there so fast because I said moron.  Because I said hey, Amanda Berry is right in front of me right now.  Here's what she got on and I told him white tank top, blue sweatpants, nice tennis shoes, nice ponytail.  What else?  Oh, right.  She's panicking, idiot.  Put yourself in her shoes.  Like I said, Amanda Berry, that don't ring no damn bells, you being a cop and all?

    COOPER:  But you - when you first saw her and she said the name Amanda Berry, did it –

    RAMSEY:  It didn't - I didn't know.  Because I forgot.  Bro, this is Cleveland.  Since they haven't found that girl.

    COOPER:  Right.

    RAMSEY:  And I guess stopped looking for that girl, we figured that girl was - met her demise.

    COOPER:  Right.

    RAMSEY:  So Berry didn't register with me until I was on the phone like, wait a minute, I thought this girl was dead.

    COOPER:  What does it - what does it feel like to have been living next to this for a year?

    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 –

    COOPER:  Do you feel like a hero?

    RAMSEY:  No.

    COOPER:  Because there's a lot of people, they're saying you're a hero.

    (CROSSTALK)

    RAMSEY:  No, no, no.  Bro, I'm a Christian, an American, and just like you.  We bleed same blood, put our pants on the same way.  It's just that you got to put that - being a coward, and I don't want to get in nobody's business.  You got to put that away for a minute.

    COOPER:  Because you know how it is.  There's a lot of people who turn away.

    (CROSSTALK)

    RAMSEY:  You have to have cajones, bro.

    COOPER:  Keep walking down on the street.

    RAMSEY:  That's all what it's about.  It's about cajones on this planet.

    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.

    (END VIDEOTAPE)

    COOPER:  Charles Ramsey.

    You expressed an opinion and provided information, no problem.

    That's why I said I might eat at McDonalds once a week.

    Lol, I wouldn't eat at any fast food establishment everyday,  unless, I had no other options!

    Hi Robin:

    McDonald's has become healthier over the last few years.  Their south western salad and now egg white McMuffin a few of their positive changes.  I get coffee everyday at one of several different locations.  I may only eat at one once a week or so.  I tied the egg white McMuffin and it was good but will go back the regular.  The cook at one of the places I visit, drops fresh eggs for the regulars.

    Most McDonalds don't care if you just order coffee and sit for a while. I see some bringing in their own lunch and just order coffee.

    Charles Ramsey, who helped free Cleveland kidnap victims, gets burgers for life

    May 22, 2013 at 3:45 PM, updated May 22, 2013 at 4:01 PM  By Joe Crea, The Plain Dealer The Plain Dealer   
    charles-ramsey-burger-hodges-crop.jpgThe Ramsey Burger, created by chef Chris Hodgson to honor hero Charles Ramsey, was only the beginning...

    Apparently, creating a special hamburger to honor Charles Ramsey was just the beginning.

    Now, the hero in the rescue of four kidnap victims held captive on Cleveland's West Side for roughly 10 years will enjoy free burgers for life.

    More than a dozen Northeast Ohio restaurants have pledged an offer of a burger anytime Ramsey wants to stop by and dig in. AMP 150 at the Marriott Cleveland Airport; Washington Place Bistro and Inn in Little Italy; Fahrenheit restaurant in Tremont; Market Garden Brewery, Bier Markt, Bar Cento and Nano Brew in Ohio City; Welshfield Inn in Troy Township; Hodges and Pura Vida in downtown Cleveland; 87 West at Crocker Park in Westlake; Orchard House restaurant in Brunswick; Flour restaurant in Moreland Hills, and the Allegheny Grille in Foxburg, Pennsylvania, have joined in the offer.

    The burger tribute was inspired by Ramsey, who stopped eating his meal of a Big Mac to intervene and aid the escape of Amanda Berry and her daughter, along with Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.

    Soon afterward, Hodges restaurant, where Ramsey works as a dishwasher, created the Ramsey Burger, a play on a Big Mac.

    "It's an 8-ounce burger of Certified Angus Beef, with a secret sauce," says chef-co-owner Chris Hodgson. Initially offered as a weeklong special, the sandwich has been promoted to permanent status on Hodges' menu.

    Which got Hodgson's partner, Scott Kuhn of Driftwood Restaurant Group, thinking a bigger tribute was due.

    "We want to honor our local hero with local food," said Kuhn, who operates four of the restaurants participating in the offer. "He stopped his meal midway through to help those women. We're now making sure he has other opportunities to go out and fully enjoy his burger."

    A single-edition "Chuck Card," good for life, is being stamped in Ramsey's honor. Anytime that Ramsey takes the card into one of the participating restaurants, he'll get a free burger.

    "I'm sure some places will give him more -- maybe add fries and a soft drink -- but that will be up to them," Kuhn says.

    Ramsey, who has been traveling during a paid leave from his job at Hodges, was not available for comment. The Chuck Card will be formally presented to him when he returns to Cleveland.

    Some people can eat a hamburger every day and get away with it.

    Often high cholesterol is genetic,  I have known skinny vegetarians with hyperlipidemia!

    Besides, I bet they will let him substitute the hamburger for a sandwich of his choice...as long as it is of similar value.

    The new chicken wraps are pretty good.  They took the angus burgers off the menu.

    Cleveland hero Charles Ramsey to become a paid speaker

    Charles Ramsey (The Plain Dealer, Scott Shaw, File/AP)

    The Cleveland man who become an overnight celebrity after he freed three young women believed to have been held captive for a decade will now get a chance to cash in on his fame.

    Ramsey has signed with Bruce Merrin's Celebrity Speakers and Entertainment Bureau, it was announced on Thursday. According to NBC News, Ramsey will be available for "speeches, question-and-answers and personal appearances."

    Ramsey, whose quick action on May 6 rescued Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight, became a Web hit.

    His news interviews resulted in a Web meme, and the neighborhood McDonald's, where Ramsey happened to be eating at the time he sprang into action, has offered him free food for a year.

    “Charles' story touched my heart. When he heard Amanda Berry screaming and crying out for help, he immediately jumped into action. He forcibly kicked the front door open and assisted Amanda and her baby to freedom. They both called 911. Charles Ramsey is a true hero to me. I admire and respect him,” Merrin said in a statement.

    Merrin told the Cleveland Plain Dealer the speaking fee for Ramsey would be around $10,000 a pop.

    Ramsey became a Web sensation for his description of the rescue, both humble and unintentionally hilarious. The Web quickly filled up with autotuned versions of him saying lines like, “I barbecue with this dude. We eat ribs and whatnot and listen to salsa music.”

    Actually..I could have a burger every day and be fine. My cholesteral always comes in a just below the normal range. I know it must be genetics because my grandfather ate bacon and such almost every day of his life and he lived to just under 95.  Fortunately..or unfortunately..I am not much of a beef eater and only have it if I am having a craving for it.

    Overall it's good to follow the 'everything in moderation' philosophy..but it's nice to know that at least I never have to worry about cholesteral...lol

    I hope his agent lines up these speaking engagements quickly because in a few months no one will pay this fee. All the same..I hope the extra income helps to provide him some financial security and that he makes the most of this opportunity.

    Are you talking about the McWrap? I actually had one last week and was surprised at how good it was. It would have been better if the cheese was melted but it was pretty good.

    Most likely not many will care except for the people he saved, and that's all which counts at the end of the day.

    yes, the McWrap and yes, the one issue I have with them is that they don't melt the cheese some of the time.
