Familiar Faces In The Rescue

I've got a lot of friends in law enforcement, and they don't usually show a lot of emotion. But the Cleveland police chief said, "Yes, law enforcement people do cry." I think some of them did when three women, missing for a decade, were suddenly found alive. They'd been imprisoned in a nondescript house by a man who kidnapped them years ago and living horrors that we may never fully know.

A neighbor heard screams coming from that house and went to investigate. A woman locked inside cried, "I've been kidnapped! I want to leave right now." It took kicking in the door, but he got her out. Later, the police brought out the other two kidnapped captives. The frantic 911 call from Amanda Berry was riveting. "Help me! I'm Amanda Berry. I've been missing for 10 years and I'm out here. I'm free now." No wonder police officers cried.
