Koon and Powell both spent their final weekend saying their final goodbyes to their families, after trying to prolong their freedom.

First the inmates made a drill to make a hole in the wall to escape, Then made the dummy heads out of cardboard, cement chips and soap to make it look like they were still in their cells.
A stolen car, footprints and a raft were found, and family contact and letters from brothers are all evidence they survived. Furthermore into the escape of Alcatraz. Frank Morris had spent a lifetime navigating the prison before his arrival at Alcatraz in other prisons, because he knew he would end up there. John and Clarence Anglin were serving for bank robbery.

Pierpont and Van Meter had longer sentences than John Dillinger, but they weren’t planning on serving their full terms, and had already planning to rob a bank for when they were out of prison. Seizing the moment, Dillinger joined a few of Pierpont's men and began a string of robberies. The jail was about 100 miles away from Pierpont's hideout, and he soon realized that with some cash and a few guns, he would be able to spring Dillinger. Pierpont knocked on the door and announced that they were officials from the state penitentiary and needed to see Dillinger. Mrs. Sarber then gave the men the jail keys and they sprang Dillinger.
People often are guilty of letting things that are out of sight be out of their mind, but human rights should not be something overlooked. The imprisoned mentally ill has been often overlooked and there voices are not heard as they struggle everyday in inhumane conditions. The eight amendment states that no cruel and unusual punishments is to be inflicted upon the prisoners.

In June of 1962 three inmates climbed through a hole they had formed into the wall of the prison, and gotten out of it in some way without getting noticed. Seeing how protective the guards were it is shocking that they did not get noticed. The three were Frank Morris, Clarence Anglin, and John Anglin. And yes those are the same Anglin twins that were founded fifty years later, and noticed to have been alive all of that time. The prove to the Anglin brothers still being alive was that there nephews had finally cracked the case and admitted to them not having been dead that whole time.

While in Alcatraz, the brothers met up with a fellow inmate, Frank Morris, who they first met while at a prison in Atlanta. The brothers, Morris and a fourth man, Allen West, devised a plan to escape from the inescapable. The plan consisted of digging through the air vents in their cells, lifelike dummy heads, and a raft and life jackets made out of raincoats.
The first thing that stood out to me from Dr. Angela Davis’s speech was that some African Americans feel that they are not even considered human. I did not realize that people felt that way and I do not think I will ever forget that statement. One thing I learned from many sociology classes is that I have white privilege which means I will never question my self-worth based on the color of my skin.
Dillinger had been in the state pen for almost four years. He was notified by his family that his stepmother was near death. He was granted parole, but arrived home after she had died. Seizing on the moment, he joined up with a few of Pierpont’s men and began a string of robberies that netted nearly $50,000. With the aid of two female accomplices, Pearl Elliott and Mary Kinder, Dillinger put the escape plan in motion.
Kaitlyn Kline Professor DiFatta Business Law 01 February 2015 The West Memphis three is a case that created quite a stir when it occurred back in the 1993 when the crime occurred and then again in 1994 when there was a conviction.

In my opinion, everyone makes mistakes and those prisoners are people just like us. Yes, they committed crimes, but being behind bars, there was nothing to be scared of. I wish I could have talked to a prisoner, because I find people’s life stories
