After Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight were rescued from a house in Cleveland after be held captive for a decade, reporters swarmed the scene as hero of the moment Charles Ramsey went viral. (McDonald's even tweeted that they'd be in touch.)

CNN sent Anderson Cooper to Cleveland to dig up some more on the case and he managed to track Ramsey down, which led to this wonderful seven-minute interview. Ramsey recounts the episode in greater detail than in his original interview. He calls the 911 operator an idiot, admits that he's had trouble sleeping since Monday, and explains that "it's all about cojones on this planet, bro."

Anderson Cooper asks if he expects a reward for finding Amanda Berry and Ramsey says that they should give it to the victims. Oh, and he says he would have killed Ariel if he had known the full extent of what was going on.

"Bruh, I'm a Christian and American and I'm just like you. We bleed the same blood; put our pants on the same way. It's just that you gotta put that bein' a coward and that "I don't wanna get in nobody's business"—you gotta put that away for a minute."
