In fact, many years after the war ended, he visited prisons for the convicted Japanese criminals that held some of his previous guards from his POW camps, and forgave them. Likewise, he wrote to the Bird, and forgave him through the words, “ Love replaced the hate I had or you. 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.
In the text, it says that “Deaths from illness and malnutrition were once commonplaces, but after the stealing school was created, only two POWs died, one from a burst appendix. And so degrading of a place, stealing won back the men’s dignity.” Not only did Louie recover physically from stealing, he recovered mentally. The hope caused by rebellion gave Louie that willingness to survive that kept his alive throughout his
Character Analysis (Volume 1, Chapter 6) Doctor Alexandre Manette: In this chapter Dr. Manette is crazy, really crazy he believes that he is still in prison and doesn’t really remember much from his past life.

The barber also has his pride and life to consider. The story is written from the perspective of a barber who is secretly part of a rebellion against the government. The barber has a very crucial decision to make whether or not to kill Captain Torres who has executed many of his fellow rebel’s, or, to not kill him. The barber named “The Best in Town” is extremely precise, his code as a barber is to never spill one drop of his customer's blood. If he does not kill Torres while he is here, however, the captain might spill even more rebel blood.
Looking at the Property Laws, In Law 21, It states “If a man has broken through the wall [to Rob] a house, they shall put him to death and pierce him, or hang him in the hole in the wall which he made.” This law does not seem fair because the robber did not harm anybody but is still getting put to death. The owner of the house has not been harmed or affected. So why should they die? The robber does deserve a punishment for breaking the wall, but getting killed is a bit too much. In Law 23, the overall statement made is, that if the robber is not caught, the man who has been robbed can tell a god everything that got stolen and the mayor and district will replace everything he lost.
What might have been a superior consummation for Osama Bin Laden, the bullet that slaughtered him right away, or an existence of embarrassment in an American jail ? On the other hand, there is an argument that death penalty is necessary for the families of victims to move on properly. The families of the victims feel it is hard to live a normal life when they know that the murderer who killed their family’s member is still alive. Regardless of the possibility that the criminal is set in the most secure office conceivable, fear still around the family 's victims. While this dread might be silly, that doesn 't make it any less
Jonas knew that his community needed the memories to feel feelings; as a result, Jonas and the Giver made a plan for Jonas to escape to Elsewhere so the memories would return. He committed several transgressions during his revised escape plan: he stole food, he left his dwelling at night, and he stole his father’s bicycle so Gabe could be in the child seat. After receiving some of the memories, Jonas quickly knew things had to change, despite knowing he could never come back once he left. No one knows what would happen if Jonas was caught, though Jonas thought he would most likely be killed; in fact, the Giver even stated he didn’t have a memory for an escape like this. Jonas took a big risk in escaping like this, especially since he left two weeks before he meant to leave because of Gabe’s release.

In Stephen King 's "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption," a man known as Red tells the story of Andy Dufresne. The authorities arrested Andy for a crime he did not commit and subsequently, he ended up in the Shawshank penitentiary with Red. Red, an astute prisoner, described how prison life could take away all hope of surviving on the outside, but for some reason, it did not take Andy 's hope. With hopefulness being an outlandish trait for a prisoner, it was no wonder that Red was always pondering as to how Andy could stay hopeful for so many years. His seemingly endless pondering would cease when Andy broke out of jail in a hole he had dug through the wall.
