Another Prison Guard Injured In Inmate Attack
This is the most recent in a series of attacks throughout the prison system. An inmate dragged a guard into a cell and beat him at Pontiac last month. Just over a week later, more than a dozen inmates jumped a guard at Menard.
Violence is rare at Lawrence, which is a medium security prison. But several inmates from max security lock-ups are reportedly being housed there. The AFSCME union warned prison attacks would go up if Tamms SuperMax prison was closed. That facility was shut down in December.
