Something tells me that Bill O'Reilly or Rush Limbaugh will not pick up on this story. All the opportunities for them to tell their audience that any young black 'thug' with a record of 'burglary' is a monster who obviously needs shot for the protection of society will be missed... and that's a damn shame. As well as being quite on purpose of course:
Handcuffed teen Jamal Rutledge saves Fort Lauderdale Police Officer Franklin Foulks’ life
A HANDCUFFED teenager is being hailed as a hero after he helped save the life of a police officer who was processing him.
Last September, Jamal Rutledge — a juvenile defendant — was arrested on charges of criminal mischief and burglary, according to NBC Miami.
But as officer Franklin Foulks was booking Rutledge, the cop collapsed holding his chest in distress.
Rutledge immediately began to kick the security fence and yell for help, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department said.
A nearby officer heard Rutledge’s cries and radioed for help. A rescue team arrived shortly after and transported Foulks to hospital.
The FLPD said attending medical staff noted quick action by Rutledge and other cops saved Foulks’ life.
Rutledge and three other officers involved will be honored publicly next week.
Of course a lot of people will say 'what else would he have done? theres a man dying in front of him'.
And to that I say... well he could have tackled the officers sister as she came running in concern for her brother and lock her in a police car feet away from her dying sibling all while refusing to administer aid...
Or he could have ignored any signs of distress emanating the officer... perhaps pleas of 'I can't breathe'?
Blamed the officers condition on his diet and left it at that?
Regardless.... three cheers for Jamal Rutledge.
