Malgus came closest to the answer I thought would come. The guards & staff at the prisons know which ones are whacko, which ones are violent gang bangers beyond rehabilitation, and which ones are semi-decent folks who they might trust to release. I think if it all collapses, they will dispatch the 1st two groups and release the 3rd. They may have a duty to protect the prisoners, but they have an even higher responsibility to their communities to prevent havoc from being unleashed upon them.
