Four prisoners at state penitentiary in Youngstown begin hunger strike

Staff report

YOUNGSTOWN

Four inmates at the Ohio State Penitentiary are refusing to eat to protest not being allowed to sit-down interviews with the media about their cases.

Greg Curry, Siddique Abdullah Hasan, Jason Robb and Bomani Shakur, who have been housed at OSP since it opened, began refusing food Friday.

The men were involved in the 1993 Lucasville Prison riot that lasted for 11 days and claimed the lives of several people.

The prisoners list a number of reasons, legal and humanitarian, why they should be able to have sit-downs interviews with members of the press.

Hello? You are in prison, apparently responsible for the deaths of others. We don't care if you eat or not.

Lay before them a hypodermic needle filled with poison and tell them we will give them a good funeral if they use it.

These four humans were involved in a riot that caused the deaths of 9 people and now they are doing a hunger strike for what purpose? Do they seriously believe anyone other than a few nuns will actually have sympathy for them? I would think that they are still able to have legal counsel; get one of the bleeding-heart ACLU mouthpieces to speak for you. This is the type of scum that scum wipes from the bottom of their shoes.
