The movie was produced by Niki Marvin and directed by Frank Darabont. • The subculture that I will be analyzing is corruption and physical abuse depicted by the guards and warden at Shawshank prison. • The physical abuse and corruption started very early in the movie, Andy Dufresne’s first night in Shawshank an inmate was beaten to death by Captain Hadley because of his outbursts late at night. Captain Hadley plays a major role in the physical abuse at the prison. Hadley later beats inmate Boggs with his baton while another guard held him down.
By breaking the law his soul would be ruined and a ruined soul is not worth living with. This goes back to when he said that the really important thing is not to live but to live well. Also, when he dies he would enter Hades as an outlaw and will not be well welcomed. Therefore, he believes that he should stay and face his execution because it is better to die than to live with a ruined soul. Socrates uses all of these points to support his main argument which is that escaping jail would be morally incorrect.
Christ said, “Forgive your enemies and pray for them” (Hillenbrand 405). Through this forgiveness, Louie was able to accept what had happened to him in the POW camps, and forgive his most prominent oppressor. For many people, forgiveness is a major part to a happy, peaceful life. Without forgiveness, many people would dwell on specific details in their life, and would not be able to move on.
You’ve heard the saying love can change you, but for Jimmy Valentine it turned his whole life around. Jimmy Valentine was a burglar, and a very good one at that. He was caught one time and sent to jail for his mad safe-cracking skills. But because of all “the friends on the outside” he has, the governor decided to sign a pardon and set him free. A detective named Ben Price followed Jimmy and wanted to put him back in jail.
Beatings and abuse did not keep Louie from resisting. These experiences show how people can go through horrible, disgusting, deplorable situations and can still recover. Louie went from having flashbacks of his time in the POW camp to living a happy life until he died at 97 years. People can recover from anything. They just need support and for people to care about
Wes Moore is the author of a novel that talks about a man with the same name as him and how his life varies from his own. There are three special social factors that set good and bad Wes apart from each other. Also there was a positive impact on the bad Wes when he participated in Job Corps when he was at the campus but it did not last very long when he went back home. Which once Wes headed back down the negative path again it would ultimately lead to his life imprisonment. But it seemed like prison turned out to have a good impact on Wes’ life but it will impact his children’s lives forever.
He is held in contempt of court, sacrificing his freedom of life for the protection of others and for not telling the court who the witness is that claims to have heard Thomas Putnam. Putnam confesses that he had been accusing his neighbors of witchcraft in order to purchase their land. Due to his refusal, he is forced to suffer the consequences that would follow his actions, “You know well why not! He’ll lay in jail if I give his name!” (Miller 1196).
Andy Wright was accused of raping a girl for the second time, and his brother Roy, shot and killed his wife and himself. In the end of everything, only Clarence Norris was successful in the north, “He wanted the world to know that he was an innocent man. He had a responsibility now to make sure that the world understood that those nine defendants in 1931 were innocent and that it was racism, only racism, that in fact forced them to spend all those years in prison,” (Scottsboro). The difference between Tom Robinson and the Scottsboro boys was faith. The Scottsboro boys waited for their freedom and after years were finally freed, but Tom Robinson had no faith in Atticus’ appeal so he committed suicide.
After he and Huck experience the murder, they are faced with the decision to either tell the truth or keep the information to themselves. They choose to run away with Joe Harper so that they do not have to deal with the pressure of having important information. At this point in the story, Tom is still at the first stage in his character renovation. It is when Tom returns from his runaway event that the change happens. Eventually the boys return home, and Tom and Huck are still being burdened with the responsibility of the true facts of the murder.
On page 299 of Tangerine it states, “Dad had to take Erik down police station.” This Impacted Paul because when people are justly dealt with it give you a sense of security and Erik was justly dealt with so Paul should feel a sense of security. On page 302 of Tangerine it states, “And as Antoine Thomas told me, ‘the truth shall set you free.’” This means that Paul is free because he told the truth about Erik. In addition to Luiz standing up to Erik, Erik killed Luiz which got Erick sent to jail and made Paul free of Erik.
We can make the situation end differently, but George being his friend and knowing the conditions that Lennie is in I think it was a way of ending the story. George didn 't want Lennie to suffer .So he decided to just shoot him. They could 've just let him go to jail but he would suffer. He could either die in jail by other inmates, get executed if he resisted.
For Rais, saving the man who had tried to kill him was the first step in a grander, more messianic mission of trying to save his new country from itself. He had begun to believe that Stroman was a victim, part of a stratum of American society that had, in all the important ways, ground to a halt one generation after the next sinking into a hopeless cycle of poverty, drug and alcohol dependency, and toxic resentment. Stroman is living his last life in cell and awaited for his death. He knew that he is going to die but still not worried for that. He is in a brave manner to face anything that comes before him.
Dennis, the person who was robbed that night urged that, "It 's not Mike 's fault for the state messing up it 's the state 's fault." Finally, in this paragraph I will be talking about why it is the state 's fault for this happening to Mike. Sure Mike did wrong and should have gone to jail, but when the prison can 't keep up with who is going to jail and not that 's on them. Mike rearranged his life and became a good person. He started raising a family and had his own business.
People tend to try to stay as close to those relationships and attempt to make the good relationships last, making friendship become part of their morals. This being said, when someone starts gain power, they are mostly able to keep their morals. In the book Night--a story about the firsthand experience of a boy who lives through The Holocaust written by Elie Wiesel--Elie and his father are in the notorious concentration camp Auschwitz. Elie’s father asks one of the guards where the bathroom is and, “he dealt my father such a clout that he fell to the ground, crawling back to his place on all fours”(48). Elie was so surprised and fear stricken that he did not even react to it, but he stated, “I thought only: I shall never forgive them for that”(48).
As much as George wanted to keep Lennie safe, he knew there wasn’t much else he could do so he had to kill Lennie himself. But, it was more like reality setting in on the American Dream and abolishing it. George and Lennie together taught one that you can hope all you want, but reality might come along and leave with your
