    3 Inmates Commended for Saving Life of Deputy Who Collapsed on the Job
    [​IMG]
    Gwinnett County Sheriff's Office
    July 31 2020
    ''A group of inmates in Georgia stepped in to save a deputy when he collapsed on the job.

    Before the Gwinnett County deputy, who hasn’t been identified, fell and hit his head while patrolling the unit, some inmates noticed he didn’t look well and said they would keep an eye on him, according to the sheriff’s Facebook page.

    The deputy then lost consciousness and hit his head on the concrete floor, splitting it open. Several inmates began pounding on their cell doors to try to rouse the deputy.

    “The entire unit was thundering with noise,” police said.

    The noise woke the deputy long enough to open up the cell doors before he collapsed again. Three inmates rushed to the officer who was bleeding heavily and used his radio to call for help.''

    ''Now, the sheriff’s office is commending them. Police noted that the trio – Terry Loveless, Walter Whitehead and Mitchell Smalls – didn’t hesitate to jump into action.

    “We are deeply appreciative to these three inmates for the courage, determination and kindness they displayed when they came to the rescue of our deputy,” the sheriff’s office said.''

    3 inmates in Georgia are praised for saving a deputy's life - CNN
    ''The GCSO thanked the inmates for using the opportunity to help the deputy.
    "These inmates came to his aid because our deputy, like most law enforcement officers, treats people with the dignity they deserve. These inmates had no obligation whatsoever to render aid to a bleeding, vulnerable deputy, but they didn't hesitate," the statement said. "Many people have strong opinions about law enforcement officers and criminals, but this incident clearly illustrates the potential goodness found in both."

    "We didn't do anything for Deputy Hobbs that he would not [have] did for us." These inmates prove that anyone can be a hero no matter the uniform''

    That is truly moving. I hope the state recognizes Deputy Hobbs for his excellent job performance- must be outstanding to generate that level of respect. They should study his interactions so people can learn from him! I wonder what the 3 inmates are in for & how this might help their future incarceration or release.

    ''UNLIKELY HERO: The local sheriff admitted it was a unique situation, allowing an inmate to use his skill set to break into a car for the right reasons.''
