photo and info presented from Wikipedia: Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections – Southern Ohio Correctional Facility Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections – Southern Ohio Correctional Facility (SOCF). Lucasville, Ohio. ***From Wikipedia*** On Easter Sunday, April 11, 1993, 450 Lucasville prisoners, including an unlikely alliance of the Aryan Brotherhood and Gangster Disciples, rioted and took over the facility for 11 days. The main causes apparently were serious overcrowding and mismanagement of the facility and discontent in the general population that the authorities were going to force Muslim prisoners to undergo tuberculosis vaccinations in violation of their religious beliefs. Investigations conducted after the riot found that the gangs were also collaborating to murder inmates accused of being informants. Nine inmates and one corrections officer were killed. During negotiations, the inmates did not feel they were being taken seriously, and voted as a group to kill a guard in retaliation. They handcuffed Officer Robert Vallandingham, who they had taken hostage, and killed him by strangling him with a dumbbell from the prison weight room. During those eleven days, representatives from the Sunni Muslims, Aryan Brotherhood, and Gangster Disciples met every day in an improvised leadership council. Following the events of the riots, all death row inmates at the facility were moved to a prison in Mansfield and later to the Ohio State Penitentiary a supermax facility in Youngstown. Five prisoners, including Bomani Shakur (Keith Lamar), Siddique Adbullah Hasan (Carlos Sanders), Jason Robb and Namir Abdul Mateen (James Were), were sentenced to death. There is a song by the band Blackbird Raum about the riots titled Lucasville. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Ohio_Correctional_Facility”
