Hillborough County, Florida is the sight of something as unusual as Lions gallivanting with sheep.
Inmates at an Orient Road Jail were caught on camera while saving a senior prison guard from a swiftly approaching death.
Deputy Kenneth Moon, 64, was working at his work station when a 24-year-old inmate attacked him. At the time, he was working alone in a pod that housed 62 of the area’s most vile and villainous.
Jerry Dieguz Jr., Hoang Vu, and Terrell Carswell rushed to aid the senior guard, with Dieguez Jr. landing a vicious cross hook on Moon’s assailant, Douglas Burden.
The three unlikely saviors are in jail for armed robbery/invasion, attempted murder, and robbery/marijuana possession/cocaine trafficking/ compounded with a failure to appear in court respectively.
“Their past acts aside, you know, you’ve got to applaud them for what they did,” remarked Colonel Jim Previtera of Hillsborough’s Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office plans to send letters boasting of the inmates character to the state attorney’s office, hoping that the state will take their heroic actions into account and provide leniency in regard of their current incarceration.
Moon is on leave, healing from the attack.
