Underused Thomson, Illinois prison to Gitmo prisoners
A prison designed to hold the run-of-the-mill Illinois criminal (no, we are not talking about our politicians this time) will be tasked by our federal government to hold many ruthless, well trained, well practiced, world-class, wholesale murderers. While trying to keep those zealots on the inside, the prison must also keep well-trained zealots who may be lurking on the outside from trying to spring their buddies. Let’s hope the facility is more formidable than it looks to be in the photo, and that the federal prison-staff members are to be no-nonsense, Marine Corps sandbox veterans.
