In the quote itself it says that Roger was taught by society that it wasn’t okay to pick on other kids, but him being away from society has allowed him to disobey that rule. Even if Roger wasn’t taught that he still wouldn’t dare harm the children because, as the quote says, the parents, school, and police would immediately stop him and punish him for his actions. Cruelty is something that’s present not only in The Lord of the Flies but also within reality. Golding used cruelty well in his book to convey his theme that cruelty is inside a majority of people, but society prevents it from ever appearing.

He had just stood there, not really trying to save himself, just stood there, joking, needling, thought Montag, and the thought was enough to stifle his sobbing and let him pause for air. How strange, strange, to want to die so much that you let a man walk around armed and then instead of shutting up and staying alive, you go on yelling at people and making fun of them until you get them mad, and then ...” (57) Montag comprehends that he did not kill a cruel creature who was a willing slave to his society, but a hopeless human shackled to it.

Many American citizens found this appalling considering the country’s indifference to racial violence. Had it not been for the lynching of James Byrd Jr., the Hate Crimes Prevention Act would not exist, therefore countless acts of brutality would take place because there would not be any rules or resistance impeding them from committing the crime.
Homelessness. Goldberg draws attention to the homeless advertised on the nightly news were "sympathetic souls who told stories about how, because of hard times, they were temporarily down on their luck" (Goldberg 2001, 68) where compared to the homeless Goldberg described as "the ones on the sidewalk, by and large, were weirdos or drug addicts or schizophrenics" who "mumbled crazy things" (Goldberg 2001, 68).
