Last Inmates Moved From Tamms Supermax Prison


The era of the notorious Tamms "supermax" is over, as the last five inmates housed there were packed up and moved Friday.

 

The transfer of the five to Pontiac Correctional Center ends a nearly 15-year Illinois experiment with the high-security prison.

 

The facility isolated the "worst of the worst" inmates from the rest of the inmate population and kept them in their cells 23 hours a day.
