The man who is being hailed as a hero for rescuing the lives of three women kidnapped for a decade says that he would like any reward money to be turned over to the victims.
Charles Ramsey became an instant Internet sensation on Monday when he helped free Amanda Berry, Georgina DeJesus and Michele Knight from the house next to his where they had been trapped for around 10 years.
“Bro, I knew something was wrong when a little, pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms,” he told WEWS following the rescue. “Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway.”
On Tuesday, CNN host Anderson Cooper asked Ramsey what it felt like to find out that he had been living next to kidnapping victims.
“See, that’s why now I’m having trouble sleeping,” he explained. “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.”
“Because there’s a lot of people, they’re saying you’re a hero,” the CNN host noted.
“No, no, no. Bro, I’m a Christian, an American, and just like you,” Ramsey insisted. “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. You have to have cajones, bro.”
Cooper noted that the FBI had offered a reward for at least two of the victims.
“I tell you what you do, give it to them,” Ramsey said. “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,” he added, producing an envelope from his pocket. “What that address say?”
“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.”

“ video footage helped police narrow in on a person being considered a suspect in the attack “to such detail, I’m told, that they believe they have a clear identification, including a facial image of a suspect”
Despite multiple media reports on the alleged arrest in the Boston Marathon bombing investigation, the FBI and local authorities confirm that no suspect has been detained.
CNN reported that a suspect was apprehended at 1:45 p.m. local time when journalist John King said both a federal source and a Boston law enforcement source confirmed the news. Reporter Fran Townsend then added over the phone that “there is an arrest that has been made in the Boston bombing case based off of two independent videos.”
The suspect was thought to be expected to arrive at a federal courthouse in Boston, but less than an hour later CNN says they are not certain on the status of the alleged arrest.
As of 2:40 p.m., the Boston Police Department and Department of Justice tell reporters that no arrest has been made, despite earlier claims.
Earlier that afternoon, CNN reported shortly after 1 p.m. that a suspect has apparently been identified. The suspect’s name has not been made public as of this time, but he is reportedly a dark-skinned male, according to police.
According to CNN’s sources, surveillance video from a Lord and Taylor department store and a local television station are believed to have helped authorities identify the person sought responsible for Monday’s incident, which US President Barack Obama said on Tuesday is being investigated as an act of terror.
CNN’s King reports from Boston that the video footage helped police narrow in on a person being considered a suspect in the attack “to such detail, I’m told, that they believe they have a clear identification, including a facial image of a suspect.”
The footage, sources say, show the suspect carrying and perhaps placing down a black bag that is thought to have contained a bomb that was detonated at the second of two crime scenes near the finish line of the annual Boston Marathon just before 3 p.m. on Monday.
The mayor of Boston, Massachusetts has confirmed that a suspect was ID’d, and officials are expected to speak to the press at 5 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. According to sources speaking to the Boston Globe, authorities may publicize their findings at that briefing.
There were preliminary signs on Wednesday that North Korea may not be in total control of a satellite less than 24 hours after it was blasted into orbit, a U.S. official told CNN.
“There are some initial indications they might not have full control,” the official said of the device that was the payload for North Korea’s first successful long-range rocket launch.
The official, who has access to the latest U.S. assessment, declined to be identified by name due to the sensitive nature of the information.
The satellite, described by one U.S. defense official as a rudimentary communications satellite with limited capability, is on a Polar orbit, meaning it is moving between the North and South poles.
Since there are issues about control, the United States is not certain the satellite is in a fully stable orbit.
“We don’t know. We are still trying to figure that out,” the U.S. official said.
Facing an ultimatum to return to the mines Monday, a South African drill operator told CNN he and his co-workers should honor their slain colleagues and hold out for a pay increase.
Cingisile Makhaba, who along with 3,000 other drillers and assistant drillers has been on strike since August 10, told CNN he must get a big raise before he goes back to the mines.
“Otherwise they will have died in vain,” he told CNN’s Nkepile Mabuse.
Last week, police fired on striking miners, killing 34 workers, wounding 78 and arresting 259 on various charges, including malicious damage to property, armed robbery, illegal gathering and possession of weapons. Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega has said police “were forced to utilize maximum force to defend themselves.”
The rock drill operators and assistant rock drill operators, who earn $300 to $500 a month, want their salaries raised up to $1,500 a month.
UPDATE August 12, 2012 – It was recently pointed out that the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) currently arming, funding, and commanding entire brigades of the so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) is designated an Al Qaeda affiliate by the United Nations pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999) and 1989 (2011), in addition to being listed by both the US State Department and the UK Home Office (page 5, .pdf) as a foreign terrorist organization and a proscribed terrorist organization respectively.
This means that the United States, the UK, NATO, and the Gulf State despots of Saudi Arabia and Qatar are knowingly and willfully funding designated affiliates of Al Qaeda contrary not only to US and British anti-terror legislation, but contrary to UN resolutions as well. Western and Gulf State support of the FSA constitutes state sponsorship of terrorism. Should the UN fail to enforce its own resolutions, while playing host to further sanctions and considerations for military intervention against the Syrian government, it will have entirely resigned its legitimacy and authority as nothing more than a tool of Western corporate-financier interests.
August 10, 2012 – In direct violation of both American and British anti-terrorism legislation, particularly provisions regarding providing material support for listed or proscribed terrorist organizations, the United Kingdom has just announced that it will provide armed militants that include listed terror organizations with a £5 million tranche of what it calls “non-lethal practical assistance.”
Image: Little else could accentuate the hypocrisy and unhinged madness of US and British foreign policy more than Foreign Secretary William Hague announcing his government’s decision to fund genocidal sectarian extremists murdering under the flag of Al Qaeda in Syria.
Both British and American journalists have clearly identified and documented the presence of foreign fighters with militant extremist ties pouring over the Turkish-Syrian border, most recently in an attempt to overrun the northern Syrian city of Aleppo. CNN, whose Ivan Watson accompanied FSA terrorists over the Turkish-Syrian border and into Aleppo revealed that indeed foreign fighters were amongst the militants. It was admitted that:
Meanwhile, residents of the village where the Syrian Falcons were headquartered said there were fighters of several North African nationalities also serving with the brigade’s ranks.
A volunteer Libyan fighter has also told CNN he intends to travel from Turkey to Syria within days to add a “platoon” of Libyan fighters to armed movement.
CNN also added:
On Wednesday, CNN’s crew met a Libyan fighter who had crossed into Syria from Turkey with four other Libyans. The fighter wore full camouflage and was carrying a Kalashnikov rifle. He said more Libyan fighters were on the way.
The foreign fighters, some of them are clearly drawn because they see this as … a jihad. So this is a magnet for jihadists who see this as a fight for Sunni Muslims.
The military’s killer drones have made America safer by decimating Al Qaeda’s chain of command, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said Sunday.
Rep. Peter King (R-L.I.) defended the tactic, which has come under increasing scrutiny as a way of waging war without leaving any fingerprints.
“I wish we could all live in a world where we could hold hands and love each other, the fact is that’s not reality,” King told CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“There are evil people in the world. Drones aren’t evil. People are evil and we are a force of good and we are using those drones to carry out a policy of righteousness and goodness,” King said.
Since the second half of the Bush administration, the U.S. has launched and estimated 302 drone strikes in northwest Pakistan, resulting in roughly 2,800 deaths, CNN reported. Seventeen percent of the fatalities are believed to be civilians.
“What goes around comes around, and those drones are going to come right back at us,” Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-Calif.) told CNN, arguing Congress was kept out of the loop in terms of the use and scope of the drone program
This alert is meant for the entire world, not just those living in the U.S. It is of the utmost importance that we flood the U.S. media with an awareness that a heinous crime is being committed against humanity and our precious planet in the skies around the globe. We believe that the U.S. has bullied the rest of the world into following their chemtrail-geoengineering agenda. If the U.S. stops spraying, the rest of the nations will quickly follow suit. Therefore, we are asking everyone who reads this message to immediately follow the simple instructions detailed below (and tell others to do same). First, understand why it is imperative that you take action NOW. Dr. Ilya Sandra Perlingieri recently posted a shocking and detailed article about the dramatic increase in toxic heavy metals the air that we breathe. There are at least 12 different toxic metals at levels that far exceed the allowable limits, including levels of arsenic (a toxic poison) that are 418 times the allowable limit! Secondly, understand that what we are asking you to do is quite simple and, in fact, was already done by many thousands of people just last week. All you need to do is send a few emails and fill out some contact forms on the media websites. The email address and links to the contact forms are provided below. We even provide sample text. Modify the text to fit your situation, then just copy and paste into the emails and contact forms. Finally, understand why this plan will succeed. The vast majority of people on the planet are unaware of what’s happening simply because: (1) they have been conditioned to believe that what they see in the sky is normal; (2) they aren’t told by the TV news that it is not normal and, in fact, the chemtrails are highly toxic. If it’s not reported on the news, it’s not real. Last week, a TV segment on chemtrails was presented on a CBS affiliate out of Atlanta. Although the story was presented as a conspiracy theory, TV news reporter Jeff Chirico issued the following invitation at the end of the segment: “Now, we know that a lot of you have pictures and videos of chemtrails. We want to see them. So, send them to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll post them on our website.“ News about the request for chemtrail pictures spread like wildfire around the internet after it was initially reported by The Intel Hub Radio and then Aircrap.org. Both experienced massive spikes in traffic. Many thousands of people sent in their photos. CBS Atlanta received so many emails, their account was overloaded causing many of the emails to bounce. Why do we have to wait for media to ask for our photos and videos before we send them? The answer is: WE DON’T! All TV News shows, news radio shows, and newspapers want your photos and videos. They just don’t know it yet. One of them is about to break the biggest story ever! Watergate pales in comparison. All we need is for one of the media giants to provide fair and in-depth coverage of the geoengineering-chemtrail crimes (similar to this local TV news segment, but much more in-depth) and the others will follow. The general populace will be awakened. There will be an outcry to elected officials to immediately stop the spraying (similar to what former FBI Chief Ted Gunderson said). This WILL lead to the truth being revealed and a worldwide stoppage of the spraying. Skeptical? All we ask is that you give it a try. It will take you at most 60 minutes to do as instructed below. And, you don’t have to do it all at once. Spend 10 minutes for six days and then you can rest. Understand this: your action is crucial to our success! If you want the spraying to stop, then you must take action NOW. People around the globe are waking up to the fact that things just aren’t right, and are now ready to hear and believe YOUR story. OK, let’s get to work. As mentioned above, there are two ways to contact the media online: (1) via email; or (2) via the “Contact Us” forms on their websites. Email address and contact links are provided below. IMPORTANT NOTES 1.Only send one or two photos via email. We will quickly overload their email inbox if everyone sends a dozen photos or more. You can also provide multiple links in the text of your email. 2.You cannot send attachments via the contact forms, but you can provide links. We suggest that you provide a link to a website that has photos or a video of chemtrails in your area. For example, if you live in Sussex, England, then go to google.com and search for: Sussex chemtrails. Then click on the images and/or the video link on the left. After you land on the website containing photos or video that represents what is happening in your area, just copy the URL from the address bar at the top of your browser, and paste it into your text. 3.You can save time by composing one email to yourself and use the blind copy (BCC:) feature and put all the media email addresses in so that they will all go out at once while keeping the other addresses confidential, it will just appear as if you sent it to yourself while they get a copy. 4.Some of the contact forms are limited in the amount of text that you can enter. So, you need to be concise. For example: “My name is Greg Scott and I live in Los Angeles, CA. I frequently see planes spraying toxic chemtrails in the skies above my home. My health is under attack. For evidence of chemtrail spraying in LA, see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=darTF7Rdbso. Also, see http://aircrap.org for evidence of a worldwide geoengineering-chemtrail effort and the serious negative impacts to our health and our planet.“ Be sure to modify the above text to include your name and location as well as the links that you want to provide. Save your text in a document so that you can easily copy and paste it into the forms. Here are the links to the contact forms (just click on the link and enter your info): ABC – Contact us form CBS – Contact Us form for CBS Evening News, 48 Hours, 60 Minutes, etc. See below. Be sure to contact each separately.
CNN (contact each one separately): CNN Contact US News Tips (Send a Story Idea) CNN Contact US News Tips (Investigative) CNN Contact US News Tips (Medical/Health) Twitter: Tweet @TeamCNN MSNBC - Contact us form Below are the email addresses for several of the media giants. You can attach 1-2 photos to your email and include as many links as you want. Again, save your text of your email in a document so that you can copy and paste it into all of your emails. FOX send email to: email@example.com Time Magazine send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org Newsweek Magazine send email to: email@example.com Feel free to contact others including local TV news stations, newspapers, and radio shows. You can usually locate their website by doing a google search. Look for their “Contact Us” link, which usually appears at the bottom of their homepage. For British Columbia, Canada: here is a Contact List For Letters to the Editors. If you have a link to contact list of email addresses for your country or region, send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org We’ll add a link to your list above. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your efforts. We are all in this together. And, together we will succeed. Godspeed.
Dana Loesch, a CNN contributor, made a statement on her radio show that she would “drop trou and do it too.” The act she was talking about was joining US Marines to urinate on dead Afghans. Earlier this week a video of US Marines urinating on dead Afghans went viral and caused pandemonium. Most people condemn the actions of the Marines while others applaud their brutal actions. Rick Sanchez, journalist, author and former CNN host, joins us for more.
