The Thompson Prison as a Federal operation creates a great opportunity for the state of Illinois, why do we all complain about it.
Our Illinois Politicians all helped get us into our current situation why do they complain and not try to pull the complete program together ?

i think that if they are having problems of overcrowding they need to let out the ones that dont have something big they need to let out the people that dont have much of a big deal with the ill goverment the only people that realle neeed to bee there is the people that killd somebody not the people that just because they broke there probation have to go there for a year! thay have to think of that to they need to have the people that really do bad stuff at ill. and if they do that they will not be having this problem!

I AGREE!! my fiance is locked up in east moline. and now that they suspended good time he will miss the birth of our first child. This is his first offense and he doesnt even deserve to be there for a whole year. this is rediculous how can they suspend something thats been around for years..because of the governors mistake!!

My husband has been locked up in East Moline for something really crazy and he doesn't deserve to be there all this time. There are a whole lot more guys in there with much more serious cases then his. Because he violated his parole time he has to miss out on all the holidays and everything. Because they are making money off of them he has to sit there until he's released. He has lost so much time with his family and son and that has affected all of us.
