Letter: Inmates didn’t hesitate taking risk



Regarding the Jan. 31 Columbian story “Inmates help rescue boys,” I don’t know what these inmates are serving time for, but they should be proud of their actions as heroes for those three boys they rescued.

Nelson Pettis, Larry Bohn and Jon Fowler should be commended and their selfless acts considered when it comes time for release or parole. Many people would not have put themselves at risk that day, but these guys did not hesitate to put their own lives at risk to save those boys.
