  • Inmates save COs life

    I don't normally advocate for violent criminals, but this is the exception to the rule. These guys deserve something.

    A little repayment to not only the people who give them food, lodging and clothing, but also society, the guard and his family. Good job inmates?

            O, I wish they had some more time to beat the ____ out of him for attacking that CO.

              Maybe I'm a cynical bastard, but I think it was probably self-serving. They knew the kind of hell that would follow if they let that inmate kill the guard.

              Or maybe that guard was real nice to them and treated them good. Meh, who knows.

                I'd wager a months salary that the CO being choked was firm but fair and treated the inmates with respect. That doesn't mean being weak or getting taken advantage of..

                And as a side note, there have been many officers over the years that I would really want to be close to should the fecese hit the fan. The inmates hate them so much that they would forget I was standing there.

                just saying the way it is.......................
                Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

                    The inmates liked this guard. He probably talked with them about their families, sports, politics etc so they had respect for him cause he GAVE it back.
                    One little turd thought no one would help the guard. he was wrong. I am all for putting a letter in the inmates files to show the judge when their sentencing ( or parole) comes up.

                      Is this a Min security jail?

                        One thing to keep in mind is this was a county jail, not a prison. So there are possibly some innocent decent people who are in there.

                          Looks like a direct supervision unit. Most likely medium security. Depends on the county. Ive known Max units that had direct supervision units.


                          Im not a fan of direct supervision housing. Had it in the county I was a CO in.


                          And good job to the inmates on this one. Just goes to show you dont have to be a complete jerk when working in corrections. I always made sure that mutual respect was a big thing with me when i was working, just for this reason. Specialy in a direct supervision unit when you have one officer to 75 inmates all in an open setting.

                            I recall a incident in the LA County Jail dining room. One of the civillian employees began choking on his food, there were about 30-40 other civillian employees many of them jail nurses. They all sat on their butts and the only one that came to the mains aid was a inmate dining room worker. He used the hemlich method and saved the man from choking to death.

                            The inmate was serving a minor misd sentence of 30 days, with the approval of the Sheriff he was released immediately, a small token of appreciation for his actions to help someone in need.
