Why? When the SHTF and they see neighbor Tyler on his way over there would be no reason to hold fire. I'd count all his prep in my inventory after watching the show.
He was the sort of person who stood on mountaintops during thunderstorms in wet copper armour shouting "All the Gods are bastards."

If it was just Tyler then it would be no problem but remember he is "leading" a group of 80 paying members, that many people are hard to deal with even if they are all idiots

Why not? Why do we release people we cannot reasonably trust? Either it is because we dont hold them long enough, we don't reform them at all, or we're morons. I lean toward all of the above. 30% of all homicides are committed by people convicted of murder, rape, or kidnapping (real kidnapping not parental non custody). Once you do your time, and that time should be productive and appropriate, you should be free.

Well, in a perfect world, I could agree with your question 100%. (being released from prison)

That isn't the way things work though here in the real world.

Prison overcrowding for one.

There are umpteen thousands of people "out" that should not be. They aren't free because they are "trustworthy", or have "redeemed themselves" - there simply isn't room for all of them.

I don't make the rules - it's just the way it is.

Then it is societies fault not the prisoner

I just watched that episode lastnight. First, I thought it was good that the show revisited the family that they had previously shown packing up and leaving for Costa Rica. That follow up was nice, and it seems like that family is on the right track and have some very good ideas.

Second, I think the marauder group was a good group to show. It's could be viewed as a wake up call, that there are people out there like that. People with no morals whatsoever and would be willing to kill you because they didn't bother to prepare themselves.

On another note, at another popular firearms related forum (no not that one) there was a thread questioning in a SHTF world would you 'loot' from someone else's property whether it be a store or another home. Reading through the replies, I didn't feel as though there were many honest answers.

I think when survival is on the line looting stores is probably a gimme, most people would and most people would feel bad about it. However robbing individual homes would be far less likely. For the far majority of people, if you're starving, you're going to do what you must for survival.
