How messed up is a culture where prison inmates care more about the wellbeing of our law enforcement officers than many elected politicians?
They’re supposedly the bad guys, right?
Sure. That’s what it probably looks like.
But you’ll notice they have retained more of their humanity than many supposedly ‘good’ people breathing the free air.
Here’s how it all went down.
What an amazing story.
In that one critical moment, these three men had clarity of vision that can rarely be seen among our talking heads and politicians.
In that critical moment, skin color was not what mattered.
Which side of the legal system you were on was not what mattered.
What mattered was that another human being was hurt and needed help. And they were able to give it.
Records show Smalls is being held over battery and drug charges; Whitehead and Loveless on drugs charges.
Whitehead said: ‘It scared me. I don’t care if it’s a police officer or whoever it was.
‘I will do whatever I can to save a man. I don’t want anyone to die.’
Footage shows as Smalls raises the alarm after spotting Hobbs was in trouble by banging on his cell door. Fellow inmates then join in to make as much noise as possible in a call for help.
That noise seems to pull Hobbs conscious again and he managed to unlock the cell of Loveless and Whitehead who are seen running from their room to help the deputy. They then called for help using a phone and Hobbs’ radio.
Smalls told Fox5: ‘I started hollering and screaming and banging on the door to try to alert everybody to wake up.’ — DailyMail
We at ClashDaily hope this act of human decency is kept in consideration when their sentences come up for review.
Because I see a whole lot of people ‘out here’ who show a LOT less everyday human decency than those three men in orange jumpsuits did that day.
Guys often talk about ‘stepping up’. It isn’t about being the toughest guy around.
It’s about being the guy who can be counted on to do what needs to be done when something needs doing.
Much like the ‘good Samaritan’, Jesus spoke of, these three unlikely heroes did exactly that.
An even better example of stepping up is the guy who gave us that parable in the first place.
Check out ClashRadio for more wit and wisdom from ClashDaily’s Big Dawg. While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:
Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
