I thoroughly cursed about how much I hated being black and how I wished I wasn’t one. Sighing to myself, I leaned back down until my back touched the somewhat comforting bed. On the other side of the jail, I heard the creaking of a chair and the soft breathing of Mr. Finch after his two children showed up, making the lynch mob leave. Mr. Finch was my lawyer for the trial in a couple of weeks that determined if I was guilty or not. Sadly, all African-American’s in Maycomb were condemned guilty even though some were innocent.
In this account, it states, “One can never forget the sadness and solemnity of that morning... The trail of the exiles was a trail of death... They had to sleep in the wagons and on the ground without fire. And I have known as many as twenty-two of them to die in one night of pneumonia due to ill treatment, cold, and exposure.”This shows how the soldier felt about the indian removal act and his extremely negative perspective on it. The soldier describes the horrible conditions of the trail and how many people died along it.
Another skill that you must possess is Communication. The ability to communicate with your clients is probably the one of the most important skills. Probation officers must be able to productively communicate with many different people, like the probationers and their family members, lawyers, judges, and other law enforcement. Patience is crucial for future Probation Officers. One officer said, “Most of my clients do not take their offenses seriously and they keep making the same mistakes over and over.” You would need patience to deal with the probationers that continue to disrespect and ignore you.

Jonathan Wayne Nobles, “was executed in Huntsville for the stabbing deaths of Mitzi Johnson-Nalley, 21, and Kelly Farquhar, 24, in 1986” (Bishop). Just hearing this man’s crime would make people want to put him in a prison cell and throw away the key because in most people’s minds someone like him cannot change. Steve Earle, “a prolife singer, songwriter, producer, actor, and writer” (Reading on the River), on the other hand, friends this man named Jonathan Wayne Nobles, and he writes this story to show that Nobles changed while in prison. In Steve Earle’s “A Death in Texas,” Earle uses elaborate character description, potent imagery, and solemn dialogue to convey the theme that people can change. Earle uses elaborate character description to show that people can change no matter how bad they were.
Jon quit using drugs, he found religion, and his behavior changed. Jon was in prison for stabbing Kelley Farquhar and Mitzi Nalley to death in 1986. During the trial “he sat impassively as the guilty verdict was read and, according to newspaper accounts, only flinched slightly when District Judge Bob Jones sentenced him to death” ( Earle 75).

In prison Jon read about recovery and he began to attend 12-step meetings where he continued throughout his final years.

He had been exposed to the elements for 8 days and to top it all off he was poisoned by the irradiated water he had drunk during his escape requiring years of treatment to fully recover. When he discovered he was the only one to successfully escape he was diagnosed with PTSD and fell into a fit of “survivor's guilt” (Kiger) by alienating himself from his family and placed the military before anything else. This was later resolved once he ended his military career and he returned to his family. He soon became the author of a book called “The One That Got Away” and gained great success as a military fiction author. Today Chris Ryan is a public speaker for sufferers of PTSD and holds the SAS record for longest retreat through the desert (Manger).

Although the infamy of Alcatraz Federal Prison has faded over the decades, the mere mention of its name fifty years ago would make a prisoners’ ears tingle. From its start as a military prison, its reputation as a cruel and unforgiving penitentiary made it feared by criminals throughout America. When Alcatraz, also known as “The Rock,” opened in 1934, it was proclaimed to be an “unescapable prison,” meant for the worst convicts in America. Throughout its history, thirty-six inmates tried to escape, all of who failed… except for possibly three. The fate of these men has been under investigation for almost fifty years now.
In Tim O’Brien’s story “Notes,” he discusses his fellow soldier “Norman Bowker […] [who hung] himself in the locker room of the YMCA” (149). Bowker symbolizes the pain that many veterans experienced, and how they sadly found their only escape through suicide. Yet, veterans potentially could have survived and even thrived if they had access to resources such as therapy, psychiatrists, and psychologists. When organizations supporting the idea that veterans should have opportunity to obtain these assets proposed this concept to The House Committee members, “members repeatedly balked at the notion that Vietnam Veterans required special counseling programs to help readjust” (Scott 38). Additionally, Patrick Hagopian reflects on how the government opposed the idea of providing these necessary resources so much that “the Nixon administration identified the politically engaged psychiatrists as enemies” (55).
The first story was about how Bowe Bergdahl, a former member of the US army, is going to court for a military trial on two charges, desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. He was held captive by the Taliban, whom the US was fighting at that time, for almost seven years. The Obama Administration recently exchanged five Taliban prisoners for Sergeant Bergdahl. Although this was good for Bergdahl, the House of Senate committees have said that they broke a law in order to do this. The administration have said that the US leaves no man or woman in uniform behind.
