MTO News obtained a newly released video that shows how corrections officers tried to have four Black inmates MURDERED by a White inmate. The incident occurred at Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, Ohio.

The video shows a White Ohio inmate knife attacking four handcuffed Black prisoners, who were unable to defend themselves. And that knife attack is believed to have been set up by a corrections officer on duty.

The White attacker, Greg Reinke, can be seen on the video stabbing four Black prisoners multiple times - and it could have been even worse had one of the victims not freed himself and fought back. Greg was using a 7-inch shank in the assault.

The incident went on for just under a minute, before the first officer appears at the end of a long hallway and charges toward the attacker in the video. More than three minutes pass before officers free the last of the inmates from their cuffs chained to a blood-drenched table.

Authorities initially declined to prosecute Greg, arguing that he was already serving a life sentence. He was convicted of aggravated murder in a 2004 shooting in Cleveland. They eventually changed their mind, when the animal later tried to kill a corrections officer.

No corrections officers were charged in the attack. In fact, not a single person in the prison was even reprimanded for putting the inmates lives in danger.

Here is the video:


The video obtained by The Associated Press reveals for the first time the extent of the victims' injuries and raises questions about how the bloody attack happened inside the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, one of Ohio's most secure prisons. Additional security concerns were raised months later when the same prisoner was allegedly involved in a knife attack that left a guard severely injured and hospitalized for months.
