Charles Ramsey may have just experienced the most interesting week in his life. After rescuing Amanda Berry and other victims from a home in Cleveland, Ramsey gave an interview that instantly went viral and became a media darling.
However, the Smoking Gun searched Ramsey’s past and discovered that he had a criminal past and served eight months in prison for domestic abuse in 2003. But Ramsey never attempted to hide his past. He recently spoke out about the incidents that occurred over a decade ago.
“I’ve made amends with the people involved and we’ve all moved on and grown up,” Ramsey told TMZ. “Those incidents helped me become the man I am today and are the reason why I try to help the community as much as I can.. Including those women.”
“If I had so much hatred for women, I would have minded my own business this week and walked away instead of risking my life to save someone else.”
The Smoking Gun attempted to tarnish Ramsey’s heroic efforts by revealing a negative aspect of his past.
However, Ramsey did a great job of taking responsibility and making sure we all focus on his achievements of today.
