This question was raised in another thread (SHTF shopping trip). The concern was raised by someone who has prisons within 50 miles of their home. What about prisons and jails? What will become of the prsioners if TSHTF? Will they be released? Left to starve? ??? :dunno: I know that not all prisoners are violent, but what about those that are? There are some pretty hard cases locked away. Imagine if they were all turned loose?
