True Story! Inmates Come To Aide of Deputy

You don't hear of many stories along the line of prisoners helping law enforcement, so I thought this was quite interesting!

Or does it just shown the only difference between many inmates and guards is who gets to go home at night?

If you can't go thru a cell block without finding at least one inmate who could have been you, maybe you aren't mortal.

Hey Betsy Boo! LOL. I think it shows that inmates have a heart too, and do know right from wrong. Not all inmates in prison are bad people. Some are there because of corrupt court systems. I'm glad to see that the inmates took it on themselves to do the right thing.

Just goes to show you that there is good in all of us - even in us that have made mistakes. Thanks for sharing.

Yep, Bill, you are right! The prisoners could have just sat there and watched, like has happened so many times before in a jail cell when rioting begins. However, they took the initiative to get involved,...and for that I applaud them.
