Especially since if Loki's prison is not extremely secure and always monitored, Odin is an idiot.
Plus let's not forget in the MCU only a handful of people know that Loki is actually a Frost Giant. Imagine what would happen if it was let out that one of their Asgardian princes was actually the son of the enemy? Sure you'll have a few open minded Asgardians but i think the majority of them would be in a state of uproar over that.
