Six Prisoners Get Reduced Sentences For Saving A Life

On Monday June 12th Sheriff Johnny Moats got a call that scared the shit out of him....He envisaged the day ending in disaster but instead,it took a turn for the better...

On that Monday, an especially humid day in Georgia, six inmates were out doing maintenance work on the grounds of a local cemetery when the deputy sheriff assigned to guard them suddenly collapsed from the heat.

As the officer lost consciousness, the six inmates surely could have run. They could have taken the fallen officer's pistol to aid in their escape. They could have even driven away in the work van, perhaps crossing state lines before anyone noticed. Instead, however, the six men jumped into action and saved the deputy sheriff's life.

Thinking quickly, one of the inmates used the deputy's cellphone to dial 911. Others removed his bulletproof vest in an attempt to cool the officer off and render it easier for emergency personnel to perform CPR once they arrived.

"When that happened, in my opinion, it wasn't about who is in jail and who wasn't," Greg Williams, one of the inmates, told WXIA in Atlanta. "It was about a man going down, and we had to help him."

Help him, they did. The deputy, who reportedly lost consciousness due to complications from a brain surgery he had 10 years ago, has fully recovered. And now, as a way of saying thanks, the Polk County Sheriff's Office is helping them right back.

Sheriff Moats is recommending that the six inmates, who are all nonviolent offenders, receive reduced sentences for their good deed. Some may even be released with time served.

In the meantime, the department threw the six men a pizza party in the park, complete with homemade desserts from the family of the officer they saved.

It's a sweet ending, made all the sweeter because everyone involved knows what could have happened had the inmates reacted differently.

"As we watched the horrific manhunt this week of the two inmates that killed two Correctional Officers and were captured last night," the Polk County Sheriff's Office wrote in a post on Facebook after the lunch, referring to the violent escape of Georgia inmates Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose, "we all know that Monday could have ended differently for our Officer. We are very proud of the actions of all 6 inmates involved."

They could have cared less and watch the sheriff die, but instead they did good.

This is why I looove America

They have food, warm baths, health insurance, single beds etc
See their clothes and shoes are clean and complete. They even have sun glasses lol
America - the only place in the world that maintains the standards of human dignity
Now its even animal dignity they are fighting for, muah
