Heartlander of the Week: Woah

This week’s Heartlander’s are Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight, the Cleveland kidnap victims.  (And Charles Ramsey, the self-deprecating, incidental hero with a sense of humor.)

OK, you could say this one was a no-brainer, but I honestly do think there is a lot to unwind here about how this situation could have gone on for so long in the middle of an urban neighborhood, with the kidnapper’s family living around the corner, how no one could notice anything definitive, how no one knew enough about someone who had lived in their community for years to know there were four other people in his average single family house.

It’s not the first time that something like this has happened, and it won’t be the last.

Deep breaths.  What next?
