Nonverbal Communication Analysis # 2390:
Charles Ramsey Interview & Cleveland Kidnappings -
Sarcastic Disbelief, Disgust and Exclamation (Video) (Picture)

A strange story indeed with a delayed but happy ending; missing for about 10 years each - Amanda Berry, Georgina "Gina" DeJesus and Michelle Knight escaped yesterday from a bizarre and twisted extended captivity. For Ms. Berry and Ms. DeJesus this prolonged kidnapping involved much of their teen age years.

Charles Ramsey who helped to free Ms. Ramsey is interviewed in the video above. He gives what is a sad and for many a truthful point when he says, "...Bro, I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man's arms. Something is wrong here. Dead give away. Dead give away. Dead give away.... Either she's homeless or she's got problems. That's the only reason she's running to a black man."

His facial expression-body language most notably displayed at 2:30 - 2:31 and captured in the image below is comprised of a cluster of a head tilt, elevated eyebrows, his entire forehead contracted (as opposed to just the central forehead muscles), eyelids opened extra wide, and his mouth configured in an upside-down, "bitter" mouth pseudo-smile (concave down, thinned and stretched lips), tightened mid-face and mustache area, flared nostrils and a dilated external jugular vein. This nonverbal cluster captures the emotional display of sarcastic disbelief with exclamation along with a component of disgust.
