Whenever I hear about bombing prisons, I think of the recommendations that had been made to bomb the Nazi concentration camps. When I first heard of it, it sounded nonsensical, but then I realized the point was that while some prisoners would of course be killed in such attacks, many more would be saved by the disruption of the defenses and fences, allowing them to escape - at least hopefully.

If the government wanted to kill all the prisoners, there would be bombs placed within the prisons, allowing them to be imploded on the prisoners. The only point to bombing secure structures like prisons would be to release the prisoners when one did not think the prison staff would do so on orders from the central government.
