Thomson Prison

Job #1?


Dig a moat. Or a combination tank trap/mine field. That's a lot of flat land between the road and perimeter fences.

We're just saying...

Maybe it's a blessing in disguise. Cross our fingers and hope Bill Cozzi will be closer to home.

That's the only silver lining I can find in the shit storm.

Job #1 is to keep a state in the Democratic "win" column in 2012 when B. Hussein Obama seeks reelection.

They know they can't lose Illinois no matter what they do. This issue could make the difference in any other state in a close election. They originally thought of moving them to fellow basket case Michigan. Polling showed it could cost them that state in 2012.

The vile and disgusting Turban Durbin and Gov. Goofy get to spin it as a jobs program for the local alcoholics and meth heads.

The only jobs really generated by this will be for communist lawyers like Obama to defend these pieces of shit.

Bottom line...They consider you to be a bunch of assholes.

I like the moat idea! One way in and one way out!

A moat of at least 25 feet deep and 20 feet wide of rainwater in it is a lot of water to cross from either side.

What an easy cheap security idea for any prison, to help stop escapees!

Obama probably favors this location because it is nice and close to his Chicago home. He probably plans on filling the prison with Fox News personal and just in case he isn’t able to tear up the Constitution and make himself dictator for life he can still hang out at the fence line with a 40 ouncer and taunt them when he retires from making a mockery of the presidency.

The importance of good retirement planning can not be overstated.

Here's the problem, the current crop of corrections offices statewide are NOT ready to even begin to handle this group. Will the military handle the logistics such as guarding these jihadists? Start watching who is buying property in and around this facility.

I'm sick of these politicians saying over and over that no one has ever escaped from a federal prison. Have they ever heard of Alcatraz?? The two brothers that successfully escaped from there were presumed dead by drowning, but the bodies were never found. The US Marshals still have an open warrant on these guys and no proof they died.

We'll assume that Thomson is a slightly better constructed facility than an Afghan prison but keep in mind we will not be receiving low-level taliban militants, drug-dealers and other minor criminals because Gitmo does not house low-level taliban militants, drug-dealers and other minor criminals... These detainees are simply martyrs in waiting. And their path to allah will come to them from the outside.

Thomson Correctional Center background info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomson_Correctional_Center where we find this less-than-reassuring line: "Illinois Governor Pat Quinn said that fewer than 100 of the inmates would be Guantanamo Bay detainees and that the Federal Bureau Of Prisons would erect a more secure perimeter fence to increase security." To keep the prisoners in or to keep outsiders from getting inside??? After all, if you look at Thomson it is on an very compact foot print and that perimeter is quite close to the buildings. Aerial view: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Thomson+Correctional+Center&sll=41.972764,-90.109069&sspn=0.007849,0.013797&ie=UTF8&hq=Thomson+Correctional+Center&hnear=Thomson+Correctional+Center,+Thomson,+IL+61285&ll=41.972828,-90.108318&spn=0.00745,0.013797&t=h&z=16 Using Google Earth one can determine that the outside fence perimeter is estimated to be less than 250 feet to the edge of the nearest cell wing wall. Anyone can calculate this using Google Earth. Did you also notice the open public roads around the facility?

Based on past taliban tactics I consider the most likely threat to be a coordinated truck/van/car bomb assault with the intent to kill both staff and inmates and NOT to effect an escape.

The necessary technical background stuff:

http://www.globalsecurity.org/security/ops/dipole-might.htm
http://www.esi911.com/eoc/addinmodules/emassist_2/ema-menu/response/ema-cd/atf/pub
/I54001.htm
So does anyone care to do the math? Less that 250 feet to go and the driver can let go of the detonator button he is holding...

But you counter that vehicular borne attacks on prisons have never happened before:

Just a thought: Why put water in the moat? Any jerkoff can swim 20 feet. Leave the moat empty. Now let's see someone try to cross.

That's easy to answer.......J-Fed made a phone call. He must have realized that keeping Bill close by, either in state or up in Wis. would be a constant reminder of how he fucked up'd! If he went to Thompson or any other fed pen he could have visitors and J-Fed did not want that.

Bill served a purpose to J-Fed and that was an attempt to show everyone that HE (J-Fed) meant business. Once he was convicted he lost his usefulness and was hidden as far away as possible.


Someone should look into J-Fed's background. Everyone has skeletons in their closets and maybe we should start look for some of Jody's.

Great! Trials too!

It's not the security, its the credibility it lends to these COMBATANTS/DETAINEES. The UK is feeling the heat for the growth of the extremist elements in its prison, and the professor(former CPD) says RADICALIZATION of the prison systems in America will lead to UK issues.

It worked at Alcatraz. Of course, they had the benefit of Mother Nature providing sharks all around the prison. The only sharks here will be wearing suits and carrying briefcases.

Blago & his legal staff are going to court to get judges ruling on bringing Obama, Mrs. Obama, Emmanuel, Jarret and others into the mix for his trial. Political disorderly conduct to be challenged in Supreme Court. Could shortshanks and Durbin be called to the carpet as well?

Do you think the break in at Blago's attorney's office was random?

Only problem with this is that the Federal Court to hear the case is in Chicago, Cook County!

Chicago style of government is going to be exposed nationwide.

This is no longer a given.

Look, this President is in office mostly because he is a nice guy. He is charming, witty and likable. Both he and the first lady are able to speak intelligently and are socially pleasant and graceful enough that they don't offend people.

Barack Obama caught lightning in a bottle. He could not have been elected 10 yrs ago, and will probably not be elected again. He was smart to distance himself (it was imperative!) from traditional black politicians so as not to be considered one of THEM.

NO OTHER BLACK CANDIDATE could have won election at this point in time. In fact, when Jesse Jackson was caught on an open microphone saying he'd like to "cut his nuts off", that probably made Obama even more palatable and acceptable to mainstream Americans. This was the black political conscience rejecting the "black" candidate because he wasn't black enough.

He was acceptable to a sufficient number of white Americans because he was not 100% black, (his mom was white) and he was raised in and had his own traditional American family structure. He also recognizes and supports the concept and values of most of middle America.

His Achilles heel will be his politics. Though only into his term by less than a year, he is starting to try to shove his socialistic ideals down the throats of all Americans and there WILL BE A BACKLASH!!!

BY NO MEANS is this President guaranteed the votes of Illinois and his politics will most likely result in his being a ONE TERM President, providing a viable Republican candidate emerges, (AND IT SURE THE F*CK IS NOT SARAH PALIN!!!).

One of the main probles is thet O'Hare Airport will have some of these folks comming thru.
In addaition to the regular club fed flights, this creates more problems.
Daley has gutted the CPD at the airport, they are at less than half of what they had, also Aviation Police is short, and because of Daley and his evil little staff, don't even have guns to protect themselves, much less anyone else!
Also, think of all the grant money Daley&Company have lost.

We weren't even thinking of a tank - we were thinking of a dump truck filled with fertilizer and diesel fuel. Or maybe a tanker truck filled with ammonium nitrate? You know, there are maybe a few thousand of those things parked around Illinois farm land. The term "tank trap" was merely a generic term for something to intercept a VBIED.

But again, if you don't think anyone can steal a tank, maybe you ought to google "stolen tank San Diego" and see if you think Thomson (or even Chicago) is prepared to handle anything like what that video shows.

Now, your chopper idea, that's interesting. The Jawa Report is speculating on ultralights. You have a bright idea there - but don't denigrate our observations either. Al Queda used truck bombs to take down embassies and apartment buildings overseas.

Whatever the terrorist wanted to do they could do long before their compadres come to Thomson Prison.

All kinds of bambing and hostage taking opportunities abound in this country.

No, the REAL danger of terrorism suspects at Thomson is that it is now only a matter of time before some Federal Judge issues an Order of Habeus Corpus and those AH's end up getting a bond hearing....

The American Criminal Liberties Union is already looking for a sympathetic judge.

I understand that even in super-secure prisons, cellphones get smuggled in so the drug kingpins and such can keep running their businesses. All it takes is another Lynne Stewart to smuggle info or phones or instructions to/from the terrorists to somebody on the outside.... There seem to be plenty of Lefty Liberals EAGER to help the poor downtrodden jihadists who have been imprisoned so long without even hearing about their Miranda rights.
