I've watched that show once.  Halfway through, I'm pretty sure I was tripping balls, even though I haven't done any hallucinogenic substance in well over 15 years.

Do you suppose the guards had a betting pool going?

oh shiat yes that one guy was waiting for it like he knew it was going to happen.

LOL.. failsafes built in to prevent prisoners dieing in a power outage eh?

In his own account of the prison incident, quoted here verbatim, Williams writes: "I was seting in my cell room 9111 when the door's open and I seen 4 inmate come in 2 my room with something in there hands at the sometime I had something to but I jump off the 2th floor becuz I was scary for my life. I want 2 know why the door's keep open."

I somehow doubt this quote is verbatim. He said 4 and 2...?

Power outage?
So you are saying all it takes is someone to stick a piece of steel into the light bulb socket to create a short circuit and the doors will just open up??

And what harm will come if there is a power outage?
Nothing worse than if the doors OPEN UP during a power outage.


Does not sound right.


I'm sure a thorough and transparent investigation will look into this.

So, when Bill Gates dies, he arrives at the Pearlys and is told to wait, decision is still out.
Yes, there are good marks, but still, you released Windows.

Shortly after Pelican Bay maximum security prison opened in Crescent City, the inmates figured out how to open their doors. The doors used a new hyper-secure pneumatic system, and they simply drilled holes and blew into them. The prison had to replace over a thousand doors.

I knew some guys once to who worked for an IG's office in a state that shall not be named.  (For the sake of the narrative, let's just call it the "Wascally Wabbit" State.)  They were dispatched to inspect a new detention facility funded to house in-mates who were either temporarily or permanently deranged.  (Who still constitutes roughly 1/3rd of said State, but that's beside the point.)

They are escorted to the central hub of a guard center that controlled 3-4 wings of cells.  The guard who"had the con" explained that the various toggle switches and levers controlled lights, power, entrance to and egress from the cell blocks.  They claim they asked for a practical demonstration of such things as whether "residents" could be controlled and e.g., evacuated.

Could never prove their version of what happened next, but I still laugh about it, anyway

A rare case of Hollywood getting it right. It was indeed a Unix system, an SGI workstation with the FSN filesystem browser.

The only fundamental difference between a prisoner and a Corrections officer is an arrest record. Somebody's girlfriend just found an Escalade in her driveway.

Actually, it sounds ridiculous but it might be an intentional failsafe to avoid you know, locking the prisoners in during a hurricane or riot.

Great, not only would people have to worry about hurricanes but escaped maximum security cons?

Actually maximum security wings looked robust enough to face a full size tank, let alone a hurricane.

Those escaped cons are still human beings, no matter how much we try to put the "US vs. them" wall up. They don't deserve to die in a storm or hurricane like trapped animals
IE, Katrina (http://www.hrw.org/news/2005/09/21/new-orleans-prisoners-abandoned-f lo odwaters )

Would it be so hard to design it for key-only operation during a power outage?  There, I fixed it.
