The operator alternated between utter indifference and asking inane questions "what was this man wearing?" Who the heck cares what he was wearing!!! She's giving you his name and his address where she was held for 10 years!
Oh, let me correct myself. The worst 911 operator since the 1994 Eddie Polec murder in Philadelphia. Or, perhaps this Cleveland 911 lady moved out there after losing her job in Philly????

I am happy for them and their families, but I just do not get how it took so long for them to escape.

What kind of screwed-up family could produce 3 brothers who were all in agreement to abduct these girls and hold them hostage for 10 years? How does one person even introduce that idea in conversation, let alone get the others to go along with it?

Expressed his shock at the kidnappings and said they had no idea women were hidden behind the doors they were forbidden from opening
But said his sister believes their father was capable of the crimes

Unhappy Reports of sex abuse, beatings inside Cleveland house


Reports of sex abuse, beatings inside Cleveland house


Three women who had been held captive for 10 years were found Monday in a Cleveland neighborhood, barely a mile from where they had been abducted. Amanda Berry was able to escape and alert authorities, who arrested the suspected kidnappers and freed Michelle Knight and Georgina DeJesus.

The police really screwed up in 2011.

They need to execute these three pieces of slime.
Agree!!!

Some of the police should be sent to jail for their negligence:

""The case of the three women held captive for a decade in Cleveland reaches a new level of absurdity with a Tuesday night report detailing the many warning signs that police appear to have ignored. USA Today says that not one not two but at least three neighbors called the police between 2011 and 2012 to report suspicious activity at the house where Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight escaped their years-long imprisonment on Monday. We're not talking about the watering-the-flowers-at-midnight brand of suspicious activity. We're talking women-being-led-around-the-yard-on-dog-leashes suspicious. Some might just call that sick."

I am so glad they got out after all that time being locked in that house...911 operators need more training and especially for unexpected situations. That neighbor who helped Amanda get out of the house deserves a medal for not ignoring her pleas... Many people would not want to get involved. There are some really great people out there still. I hope the women can have a peaceful happy life after all this, catching up on all they missed out on. I do see a TV movie coming out and a book though!

Post This guy is a hero!


Charles Ramsey: I'm no hero in freeing of captive women


(CNN) -- Within hours of becoming a national hero, a viral video star and the top topic on Twitter, Charles Ramsey talked about having trouble getting sleep.

It wasn't because of all the excitement that followed his knocking down a Cleveland neighbor's door, freeing three women and a girl who police say were held hostage for years.

Video included.
