What's funny is people scream that justice has been served but let's see... They went from an air conditioned unit it tamms to non air in menard or Pontiac. They still are locked down the same amount of hours. They get worse med treatment and evaluations and tamms is reopening after being reclassifying. Great jobs everyone for saving the state money and sending the inmates to worse conditions... Bravo to you all

Yes. Unless you know what truly goes on there or where ever, you cannot judge.
Gathering all the real facts is key.
We have a LOT of troubled people out there is all I can say.
And thousands are not in prison.
And we have to be careful when we say they get this or that for free. It's never free.
We are paying for it.

Ya I work in corrections.It's just think its funny people think they make a difference in the inmates lives. Many of the inmates were pissed they had to leave tamms since it was a lot nicer than other facilities. That's why I'm saying bravo since tamms will be reopened as the same thing but under a different classification or name but for less money and fewer perks for those inmates.

You know what, they housed the worst of the worst. maybe they should have thought about that before prison..... Ask the families of the one they hurt and see what they have to say. I am sure they all were not guilty and were wronged in some way. You get what you give in life. sorry that it was hard there, but so what, should have just left them all there in the first place
