What will happen to the inmates? What do I think will happen?
Well, I know this sounds horrible and all, but what I think will happen, and what will happen are two different things.
What will most likely happen is that the Bad Guys will get out and revert to type. Those that were bad to begin with will be worse, with a SHTF “no rules” scenario… until put down like the mad dogs they are.
The others – the percentage of nonviolent offenders? Well, one can only hope that they do only what they have to do to survive and make their way home peacefully. Do I think that will happen? No. I hope it does, but down deep I know different. When faced with a “tribe up with us or die” situation that the really bad Bad Guys will present them with, they will tribe up… and then be cut down shortly thereafter…
What would be best?
Well, nobody has stepped up and said what we’re all thinking, so I’ll do it…
It sounds mercenary and heartless and cold and evil… and I’m not going to argue any of that… but shooting them in their cells before they get a chance to escape and wreak havoc might be the most humane thing, all the way around…..
Edit: Just think of it this way, y’all…
Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.
