Cleveland resident Charles Ramsey has been catapulted into the spotlight after rescuing 27 year-old kidnapping victim Amanda Berry from his neighbor’s house; leading to the rescue of Gina Dejesus, 23, and Michelle Knight, 32, and Berry’s 6-year-old daughter.
It’s an incredibly shocking story. Berry disappeared in 2003, DeJesus in 2004, and Knight in 2002. Three brothers, Ariel Castro, 52, Pedro Castro, 54, Onil Castro, 50 have all been arrested for the kidnapping. The horrific details of the experiences of their captives will certainly come out in the coming weeks.
But for now, the focus has been on Ramsey, whose animated and rather hilarious post-rescue interviews have made him a internet sensation, in the vein of Antione Dodson and Sweet Brown.
But are we laughing with him or at him?
