'Just let them die': Ohio guards laughed as supremacist stabbed cuffed black inmates, suit says.
An Ohio prison staff acted with callous indifference as a white supremacist attacked four black inmates handcuffed to a table, according to a federal lawsuit filed earlier this month in the Southern District of Ohio.
Two correctional officers, identified only by their surnames, Faye and Dalton, laughed as the four black inmates were brutally stabbed in June 2017, the suit says.
It claims the victims' civil rights were violated, including that they suffered cruel and unusual punishment because of the prison guards' inaction.
Pugh, Lee and two other black inmates were strip searched before they were allowed out of their cells for recreational time.
Reinke is identified in the suit as a member of the Aryan Brotherhood, a violent white supremacist group.
Faye and Dalton, the guards, stood nearby behind a locked door and "laughed as Mr. Pugh, Mr. Lee and the other inmates were stabbed.". »
