Tamms Prisoners Relocated
Illinois officials have moved eight of the state's more volatile criminals from the supermax Tamms penitentiary. The move occurred yesterday, part of Governor Pat Quinn's plan to close Tamms and one other major prison. The same day, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees filed a lawsuit to stop the transfers. The union for Illinois’ corrections workers wants the state to negotiate how moving dangerous criminals will affect them.
