In all the thirty three years of operation, only one hundred and eleven deaths occurred. Six inmates died from suicide, five from a work accident, two were murder from another inmate, and eight inmates died trying to escape and fatally shot by the guards trying to stop them from escaping. Fact about those eight people who died, they were counted as one of the one hundred and forty inmates that tried escaping and out of those one hundred and forty inmates, only twenty six were successful and escaped. Anyways, one prisoner was executed in the Yuma courtyard, and the rest were natural deaths, like disease, old age, tuberculosis, and many other reasons. ( Tuberculosis: The Real Killer

After 25 years at SeaWorld Tilikum started to show an abnormal and repetitive behavior where he would chew on metal gates and on the concrete sides of the tanks which has caused his teeth to warn down. The stress of being in captivity has also caused him to be aggressive towards humans and because of that there have been 3 death: One being Keltie Byrne in 1991, the second attack was to Daniel P. Dukes in 1999 and the most resent one the death of Dawn Brancheau in 2010. In my opinion the death of Dawn has been the most famous in SeaWorld because there is more information about her death than the others and also is the most recent death at SeaWorld. According to the documentary "BlackFish" Dawn died when Tilikum grabbed a hold of her upper arm and pulling her underwater while he was doing that he dismembered her and broke most of her bone then he
The officers tend to create what is known as a “we/they syndrome”(Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015). This relationship is mainly between the officers and the inmates. Also, it has been said that “when there is little interaction except in control situations, the adversarial nature of the relationship tends to be one of dominance and, in return, resistance is present on both sides”(Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015). Last but not least, the officers tend to lose their capacity and become shocked by the things they see or witness in these type of prisons”(Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015). “Over time it destroys them psychologically and brings outrage and sadism and violence and brutality”(Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015).

The murder tried to burn the bodies but couldn’t get the fuel to ignite.
Three survive the crash, including Louie. However, one man does not survive the 47 days spent at sea before they are found by Japanese sailors. From that point forward, Louie was invisible since he was excluded from the outside world and objectified. It was not until he was taken to a POW camp that efforts
Supermax prisons are generally designed to house the most misbehaved inmates, and these inmates are generally locked away in solitary confinement for a majority of their stay (Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015). Mears (2015) mentions that supermax prisons are designed for punishment and seclusion, but these inmates can be released from supermax prisons. Two common ways to get released from supermax are through good behavior and being released from a prison term. Most supermax inmates have proven they cannot conduct themselves as model prisoners, but they are given another chance through showing good behavior in adverse conditions. If the prisoners are unable to change their behavior, they may complete their sentence in the supermax prison.

a mandatory minimum number of years in prison). The consequences of the United States’ late-twentieth-century obsession with mass incarceration and extreme, inhumane penalties are well-documented. From 1930 to 1975, the average incarceration rate was 106 people per 100,000 adults in the population. Between 1975 and 2011, the incarceration rate rose to 743 per 100,000 adults in the population—the highest incarceration rate in the world—with the total number of people incarcerated in jails and prisons across the country now surpassing 2.3 million. This growth cannot be explained away by increasing
When Aboriginals were shooting animals they had no idea about the laws and the consequences were harsh. The prisons didn’t take long to fill up. The first boat of prisoners arrived at Wadjemup in July 1838. The boat contained six prisoners. There was no prison at this time.
