Despite Uptick in Prison Assaults, Quinn Defends Tamms Closure

Governor Pat Quinn defends his decision to close some Illinois prisons… despite concerns about overcrowding and an uptick in violent assaults inside prison walls.


The union representing prison guards say the problems have gotten worse since Quinn closed the Tamms supermax prison, moving some of the state’s most dangerous inmates to other facilities.


But Quinn says there were lots of problems at Tamms… and contends the state is better off because he closed it.


Quinn also says overcrowding problems will be alleviated by an early-release program the Department of Corrections plans to implement later this year.
