Good Samaritan Charles Ramsey Says He'd Give Reward Money to Victims: Is It the Right Thing to Do?

If you've been following the decade-long Cleveland kidnap case unravel within the past few days, you've also probably been following Charles Ramsey. He's the charming good samaritan who helped free three young ladies and a young girl from the house where they were trapped for 10 years by alleged kidnapper Ariel Castro.

Now, Ramsey is saying that if there is some reward money coming his way, he'd hand it over to the victims. During an interview, Anderson Cooper mentioned a reward offered by the FBI for "information leading to the whereabouts of Amanda Berry."

Ramsey's response? "I tell you what you do, give [the reward] to them." He continued: "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? [...] 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[.]"

Do you think Ramsey would actually hand over the cash to Amanda Berry and the other victims? And do you think giving any potential reward money to the victims is the right thing to do in this case?

INQUISITR.COM reports:
Charles Ramsey has largely been hailed as a hero after his actions leading to the dramatic rescue of not only Amanda Berry but also her fellow kidnap victims - Berry’s daughter, Gina DeJesus, and Michele Knight.

    I think it's honorable of the man. It makes him that much cooler.

    It's the good and honorable thing to do. Such a rare thing to see in today's society, a society of gimme gimme gimme, living of the government dole, etc. These women are starting all over, they have nothing - Charles Ramsey is a real man, this is what real men do, we give our blessings to those who need it more than we do. What a cool and awesome message he is sending out.

    Its his money, he can do what he likes with it. It may be a great gesture, but its not necessarily the RIGHT thing to do. Their 'reward', after all, is that they are now free.
    They will get a ton of money when they sell their stories. Will they give HIM anything then?
    Interesting to see.

    Neither giving the money nor keeping the money would be wrong.

    Giving it to the victims is certainly a Generous and good thing to do.

    Right thing or wrong thing, if there is a reward and Mister Ramsey gets it, it his to do with what he wishes. And if he wishes to give it to the captives so much the better. Makes him one Rightous Dude.

    You know it was con .. before he pulled out his paycheck.. people were claiming he didnt have job, that is why he was able to save someone in the middle of the day . I mean if you are brown and work something other than a normal 9-5 cons on this place would swear that you are not working .

    I agree, the ass who ran to point out his unconfirmed police record is an rabid racist. The con ass could not even give this man one minute of being a hero to this country. I can assure you if this man was white, rich and a rabid con not one word would have spewed from a con's diseased lips

    Don't know that your attack on someone adding a little bit of background information is warrented.. I notice that you don't dispute the TRUTH of the claim so it's validity doesn't seem to be in question here..

    NOR do I think that his past is necessarily a bad thing to know in this matter..

    I,, for one,, consider his actions even MORE heroic in light of a past that he managed to rise abpve..

    It seems that YOU get MORE joy out of attacking "Cons" for telling the truth then is in YOUR best aelf interests..

    You MIGHT want to THINK about that..

    LMAO I am not the one who raced here to trash an BLACK American hero..you and the ass for a con did.

    See, here is the difference....this is a TRIBUTE to him...gotta something to say different..do it else where. A true racist is so out of control they can not hold back, then can not let a hero be a hero. They drag up unconfirmed police records and spew it all over his tribute blog. Just glad no one took the bait...the racist con fell falt on its face...and you are too dear in backing the crap.
