Inmates assault accused killer at Erie County jail

Two Erie County inmates teamed up to beat down a suspected murderer Sunday inside the Erie County jail.

Tony Brown, 30, and Takoma Johnson, 33, both of Sandusky, weren't immediately charged although Erie County chief deputy Jared Oliver said the case would go before an Erie County Grand Jury this week.

Meanwhile Tommy Reogas, 34, was taken to Firelands Regional Medical Center where staff stitched up a gash on the right side of his face. Deputies never found a weapon but they suspect one of the men used a the metal part of a pencil eraser to slice Reogas' face.

Pencils are allowed in the jail, Oliver said.

All three men were being held at the Erie County jail late Monday — Johnson on $125,240 bond, Brown on $39,334 bond and Reogas on $546,700 bond.

Why did they beat up on Reogas when they have the worst offender of them all sitting right there: a baby killer?

I thought those where the guys they went after in the joint? What, those two didn't get the memo?

They couldn't possibly mistaken Reogos for Clinton, come now, even I couldn't mistake that guy!!!

Oh, really? It's a freakin' jailhouse. Anything could have been said or misconstrued. They have nothing better to do than argue and fight. Who knows what started it because they don't have the right to speak freely to the press anymore without a lawyer saying it for them. I'm all for them taking upon themselves, but when they do, we are not there and have no say.

Hmmmm, I guess one isn't allowed to post their opinion here without concern for censorship.

Just Thinkin

They should be patted on the back, Great job guys, Thanks

I can't believe some of you are arguing about this. This stuff happens in jail guys. It has nothing to do with race. I do think the race war comment was way off but that's just one's opinion. Why would anyone want to start a race war because of a couple of guys fighting in jail?

Hello
If you live with someone long enough, they tend to get on your nerves sometimes. At home you can walk out the door until you want to and come back cool, calm and collected.
It's jail. You can't do that. You can go to your cell but there is no guarantee that the agressor will leave you alone.

SandTownBry

WOW..REALLY??????? whats race have to do with? point blank black or white if u can go out in kill children or take away a childs mother its all the same i dont care what color you are. and its really sad that some people are even bringn up race.Ive been to jail a few times and sometimes you do have the peps that like to stay n there own lil click an most of the time its sepreated by race in there thats just how they roll in there .it has nothing to do with the fact that 2 dudes beat up another dude it wasnt becuse of race it was becuse of his crime..so stfu about race already .seriously. and if u dont like my spelling or how im writeing then move on..thanks.

You know people assume without knowing. I've stopped stressing over them. For the nosy ppl that insist on knowing, the fight was over that group of "thugs" thinking they would run the show. Tommy wouldn't bow down to them so they jumped him. Had they fought him 1 on 1 with fist there wouldn't have been a problem. That's considered a fair fight. Sucker punching and ganging up only shows you're weak and you knew you needed help to take him down.

I just cant for the life of me...give a crap about a bunch of inmates beating each other up...and i feel even less compassionate to someone who took a life...while hes boo hooing over a slit face that will heal...somebody is DEAD thats permanent and I cant feel sorry for him. Murder is weak and cowardly...so i dont care about a fair fight or a jumping...there criminals and violent anyway thats why most of them are there to begin with.."Tommy" shouldnt have a murder charge to get put in jail...THATS the first problem :)

Support4TR

ACCUSED murder not convicted. And I don't see anyone asking for your sympathy. My comment was to say it is about race. Black people try to run the show in jails and prisons and bc Tommy is white and won't back down to anyone he was jumped. I am not saying all black people are like this. The ones who were raised right are very respectable people. The ones who act ghetto are like that bc they don't have respect for anyone. I don't deny that Tommy hasn't done his share of wrong in the past. I don't feel like he should be out right now either as bad as that sounds. The police have texts of me, his sister, telling him to turn himself in. This was before John's death. Drugs ruin ppl but you take that risk the 1st time you try them. He is paying for that now which I do feel he should. So don't think that we are asking for sympathy. I'm done feeding the fire. Point is if you feel the need to fight someone don't be a coward about it. Do it old school.

RACE HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH ABOVE INCIDENT. If killer of children is black, he has less than a 20% chance of being ASSUALTED in prison than a WHITE PERP. whites WILL SUFFER at a grater chance, 15-1 of being forced into "protection payments" than a black perp... A white stands to be attacked, by more than 2 blacks at a rate of 26-1 and, whites will be forced into homosexual enforcement by blacks at a rate of 225-1 !!! no matter their crime. Its about economics in prison as it is in society.
