So they'd try to reach into the cells, but the prisoners could probably stay out of their reach until they starve to death and turn themselves--so the biggest population would still be in their cells with only the guards running around? Unless they decided to let everybody go to try and save themselves. Big mistake.
I agree, but for the sake of the show, I bet most of the population in the prison is roaming around. If they were all locked up, dealing with the zombies would be boring.

Maybe cleared up is the wrong term. Gave more depth to something I already assumed is more accurate.

I can easily buy into that they didn't get to the prison right away. It was just cool to hear the writer's point of view.

I know this thread is dead, but since it's infected, we have to kill it again - aim for the head this time.

Anyway, most modern prisons have remotely controlled cell doors that a) require power to operate and b) have a manual override to open the cell doors if there is no power, or they fail open - meaning that if power fails, the cells automatically open.

Prisons don't have power backup that lasts for 6 months, so I would assume that after some time in the cells, once the power ran out, the cell doors just opened and they were free to roam the cell block and get killed.
