His bravery and decisiveness saved the girls from what Ramsey initially thought was a domestic dispute, but his hero status certainly isn’t hurt by the fact he’s also funny, down-to-earth, and gives a great interview.

He told Cooper he doesn’t think of himself as a hero, saying:

“No, no, no. Bro, I’m a Christian, an American, and just like you. We bleed same blood, put our pants on the same way. It’s just that you got to put that – being a coward, and I don’t want to get in nobody’s business. You got to put that away for a minute.
I tell you what you do, give [the reward] to them. 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[.]”
