Feb 27, 2008 “Stateville” – Pimpin’ aint dead A classic Big House Main reason big house began to lose steam – the era of many big houses is over – ending mid 1960s – advent of professional correctional management; wardens should be people with college degree and should adhere to professional administrative standards. End of big house era – big time of prison riots – Attica, NY 1971; guards and inmates killed by state troopers to put down riot 1980- New Mexico State prison riot – prisoner against prisoner – O wing; prisoners who were know to rat out others; also child molesters; convicted police officers; Inmates stormed control room and marched to O-wing and killed dozens of inmates, raped, burned, mutilated Contributed to decline of big house was court intervention – in 1960s courts began to give inmates some basic rights. Prison official said Johnson v. Avery has been a blessing more than a curse – eases tension a bit

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
