Just remember, there's more inmates incarcerated for a bag of herb than all violent offenders combined. If they get out (many won't), they'll disappear and start a garden. While some will definitely be out to satisfy some vendetta against society, most will want to start anew, just like everyone else. You'd even be surprised at how many of the really, really violent ones, those that cannot be allowed to integrate into a new society, are dealt with by other inmates before they get a chance to hop the fence.
Prison is a society in itself. You may even find the resourcefulness of most inmates very useful to your own survival. Just remember, for every really, really bad dude in prison, there's two more walking the street today.

So after a nuke or terrorist attack or a Natural Disaster on the State of Illinois and the state stops running due to the attack or disaster, it's lights out for prisoners!
