Hey, not all (alleged) criminals are monsters. Jamal Rutledge was in the process of being booked for a crime, when his booking officer collapsed. Jamal, handcuffed at the time, alerted other officers.

The officer received CPR and should be fine. Meanwhile, this is what happened to Jamal:

Det. DeAnna Greenlaw told ABC News that the department hopes the young man, who will receive a life-saving award later this month, will use the incident to make a positive change in his life.

“We wanted to make sure we commended him for making the right decision,” Greenlaw said. “We wanted to make a positive impact on him and his vision of police officers.”

Terrific. Hit the link for more info and a cool group photo.
