Reply To: Courage: Yes, sex offender registrants have it too

When I was in Prison and had to go off grounds to see a Doctor, along with other inmates we went to early lunch in the chow hall. As we were eating our lunch an inmate sitting at the next table started to choak on his food. The COs looked on as one inmate from my table got up and did the Heimlich maneuver on the inmate. He was able to remove the food from the inmate…again, as the COs watched. The man that saved this man’s life is a Sex offender. I knew he was, but the man he saved didn’t know and I’m sure that he didn’t care…at that time.
