AFSCME members and supporters stand along Route 3 during an informational picket on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013 in Chester. Two guards and a chaplain were injured Tuesday in an attack by a large group of inmates at Menard Correctional Center in southern Illinois, state and union officials say. The assaults were the latest in a series of violent incidents involving guards and inmates, including on death, at Menard and other prisons over the last month. Union officials say the violence comes as a result of a decision by Gov. Pat Quinn to close several prisons around the state to save money. (AP Photo/The Southern Illinoisan, Paul Newton)
