This Is What ACTUALLY Happens During Prison Lockdown

Mar 5, 2020

Prisons have a safety protocol they follow when something out of the ordinary happens. They lock everything down. If someone gets violent and hurts another inmate or if the guards sense a riot brewing, the entire prison will go into lockdown, and lockdowns can last hours, days, weeks, or even months! Today we're going to show you what goes on inside a prison when everything gets locked up.

  • The prisoners can take over the prison at any time as they greatly out number the guards. However taking it over is the easy part because nothing after that ever ends well for the inmates.

  • School lockdowns beat prison ones any day. During a school lockdown, the doors to all the classrooms are locked and everyone is sent to the least visible part of the room, the lights are turned off and all the blinds are closed over the windows. Paper is taped over any windows that don’t have blinds or curtains. This is to protect all the students from any potential violent threat and it usually only lasts a few minutes
