Patrol Officer Anthony Espada Tells What is Was Like to Find Amanda Berry and the Others
In one of the most astonishing pieces of reporting, the Cleveland Police Patrol Officer blogs about his actions and reactions from the moment he received the dispatcher’s call to bringing Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus out of the house to safety and freedom.
When Amanda Berry escaped with her daughter, she came up to the drivers’ side of the police vehicle. Anthony Espada’s buddy “looked up at me and he’s like, ‘It is her.’ Just the emotion from that point that he confirmed it was Amanda was overwhelming.”
With these simple words, Espada was out of the vehicle and into the house where he found Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.
We were so taken by Anthony’s direct and vivid blog that we put it to DeepWord. We wanted to see what lay behind his words. We were even more impressed.
DeepWord says that Anthony Espada was focused mainly on actions and activity. DeepWord said his prime reference was moving and changing. And, DeepWord registered that he was mostly open, showing that the likelihood that he was being honest was very high.
His mood throughout the blog was smart, realistic and expectant. I get the sense here of someone who is on his toes … ready for anything. And, he are thinking, too. Highly engaged with the situation.
If that wasn’t good enough, DeepWord delved deeper to try to define the motivations that underpinned Espada’s words. So, what came up? DeepWord highlighted the words determined, purposeful and attentive.
I think the Cleveland Police should have those words engraved on their badge. That is exactly what a really good cop should be.
Well done Anthony Espada. Your policing skills shine through in this incredible story.
