It hit me a few days ago. Next year will
be the 20th anniversary of the bloody Easter uprising at Ohio’s crowded,
racially tense maximum security prison at Lucasville. That deadly riot, the longest prison riot in American history, was The Enquirer’s finest hour.
Gov. John Kasich last week denied a
request for clemency from Mark Wayne Wiles, who was convicted in 1986 of
the murder of a 15-year-old boy in northeastern Ohio. Wiles was scheduled to be executed April
18, the day this issue is published, at the Southern Ohio Correctional
Facility in Lucasville.
