Far more pressing issues at hand right now, fine they are free, he has been arrested why keep covering it, move on
I suppose, for the rest of the country, this is a minor event.
For those of us who live in the area, this is a big deal, and the news broke just last night.
I'm generalizing here, but most violent crime in Cleveland happens on the East side. Sure, there are some rough neighborhoods on the West side, but there aren't nightly shootings or regular violence.
The first girl didn't get much attention, because she was old enough that she could have been a runaway, but the other two girls were young teens that just vanished without a trace off streets that many of us regularly frequent - living, working, shopping. I drive past the Burger King where Amanda Berry was last seen every morning and I'm sure, like many people, I thought about her every time I passed by.
This sort of crime just doesn't happen in West side neighborhoods. It was a dark cloud hanging over the area for over a decade - everyone knew about those two girls and I suspect people with children felt it even more accutely. There was always the possibility of it happening again.
It's a tremendous relief that, not only were they found, but found alive, despite what they've likely gone through.

(Senseless legislation does nothing to solve senseless violence.)
agree this is big news there but not national, we know they are free and the man is caught but to make this a massive story to the country which affects no one but the locals is more of an excuse by this drama queen media to keep Benghazi off the news because that does affect us knowing how a Govt turned their backs, then lied about it
