Instead of a "real" post today I just have a simple question.
I read books and blogs about the "Crunch", "It", "Collapse", "SHTF" or what ever you want to call it when it does happen and I have not seen anyone touch on this area.
If the food supply is gone leaving empty shelves across the nation from the last minute shoppers and looters, plus the dollar being worthless making the fuel to expensive to buy and ship any commodities and fuel itself also not being shipped causing a shortage making it impossible for people to commute to and from work (assuming people would actually still go to work in fear of their stuff being looted or being killed for their cars), what is going to happen to all the criminals that are locked up in prisons and jails?
Being there will be no food to feed them,will the authorities just open the doors to thousands of murders, thieves and rapist and say good luck?
In a crisis of that magnitude instead of being at home protecting their families and investments, would the jailers just stay at the jail, but even if they did that, where would they get the food to feed everyone?
This question may have been cover somewhere, but I have not seen it.
It's just a thought.
