Harris County Prisioners

In this installment of is “is this believable” we’re in Texas where the New York Times reports an innocent woman was incarcerated just so that prosecutors could force her to show up at her own trial.

Is this believable – cops and robbers edition

Inmates save jailer
from USATODAY

In today’s “is this believable” we visit a jail in Parker County, Texas where on June 23rd prisoners were being held in a holding cell in District Court building.

A single guard was watching 8  inmates when all of a sudden he keeled over from a heart attack.

The prisoners, watching this unfold, broke out of the cell to save the cop’s life:

“We were worried they’re going to come with guns drawn on us,” Kelton said Thursday.

The guard had no pulse. Inmates screamed and banged on doors. They raised such a ruckus that deputies upstairs in court came running.

“They thought it was a fight,” said inmate Floyd Smith. “They thought we were taking over.”

Parker County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ryan Speegle said he didn’t know what to expect when he got downstairs.

“He had keys,” Speegle said. “Had a gun. It could have been an extremely bad situation.”

Fortunately the guard survived the whole ordeal.

Robbers saving cops.  Now I’ve seen everything.
