However, against all expectations, the Sea Venture had weathered the storm—barely. Among the survivors, William Strachey described the experience most vividly in a very long letter (twenty-two folio pages when finally printed), written in Virginia to an unnamed lady in England. For three days and four nights, Strachey remembered, all hands—crew and passengers, noblemen and commoners—pumped, bailed, cast trunks and barrels overboard, and threw down much of the ship’s rigging, while sailors, lighting their way with candles, stuffed the leaking hull with whatever came to hand, even beef from the ship’s larder(Skura 22). Many distraught souls, resigned to a watery death, bid their friends farewell(Vaughan 11) or took refuge in drink. But “it pleased

Camp Atlanta housed around four thousand prisoners compared to other camps in Nebraska that contained only around three thousand. Of all the camps in the United States (U.S.), Camp Atlanta had the lowest death rate; although, there was still a lot of disease. Malaria was a common disease in the camp at one time, so there were a lot of lab tests that had to be done.
After getting caught trying to bribe guards in the Atlanta federal prison for special privileges and other favors, Capone was sent to Alcatraz. He could not use his influence and manipulate as easily as in Chicago (Biography.com). By most accounts, Capone was a model prisoner and on November 16, 1939, after serving seven and a half years and having paid all his back taxes and fines, Al Capone was released (FBI.gov). However, upon release, Capone was immediately admitted to a mental hospital in Baltimore where he remained for three years. Capone was suffering from untreated syphilis he had contracted as a young man and it had caused brain damage and dementia (History.com).

During the next 20 years, the amount of abolitionist countries kept increasing at a small rate. By the end of 1988, there were already 35 countries completely abolished the death penalty while another 17 removed it from all ordinary crimes in peacetime (Hood&Hoyle 14). However, over the 11 years from 1989 to 1999, there was a surprisingly giant increase in the amount of abolitionist countries. In the next 13 years from the end of 2000 to the end of April 2014, 24 more countries abandoned the death penalty for all ordinary crimes (Hood&Hoyle). Up to now, the countries or regions which has not abolished the death penalty are mainly from Asia, the middle East and the north Africa.
When in prison a person is not able to do much but wait till they get out or do what the prison guards want them to do like chores around the prison. An inmate can end up being in prison for years and it may lead to mental problems due to lack of freedom that they have in there. Almost in every prison there are inmates that have mental problems. The Nation’s Health newspaper article journalist Kim Krisberg, had research that around 24 percent of inmates have potential symptoms of psychosis (2006). As stated earlier 200,000 people end up in prison in each year which brings it to around 48,000 prisoners having mental health problems because of being in prison.
In 2016, at least 3,117 people were sentenced to death across 55 countries, which is the highest number to recorded in just a year. The actual number of people who were executed in that 2016 is approximately 1,032 that mostly happened in Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia. With the remaining prisoners who are still sentenced to death, there is a possibility of commutation to lifetime imprisonment instead of a death penalty in the future. Imagine they are living their lives in prison while their victims have no voice at all because of the crime they committed. With that being said, we are in favour of capital punishment for these reasons; capital punishment creates an emotional or psychological effect to people that have experienced heart wrenching incidents and having prisoners only convicted lifetime
