ILL-inois: Prisons closing, inmates living in gyms
What to do?
Close prisons. Two have been shuttered, along with some halfway houses. More closures are coming.
But now there are more prisoners than cells--so about 100 of them are being held in makeshift quarters in gymnasiums, which a spokeswoman innocently describes as "temporary dorm settings." More gym-mates are on their way.
The union is upset--and I'm on their side here, even if these gym-mates are only minimum security prisoners.
