Jones supports Atticus’s honest nature by saying that, “Reflection gives us humility, forces us to confront our own frailties and limitations; and compassion helps us love…”(Jones 152-153). In this situation Atticus has to confront his lawyer and father side; however, his decision tells readers that he still cares about Jem through his honest nature. Ultimately, Atticus would rather tell the truth and put his son on trial rather than let lies fester and develop into rumors in the small town of Maycomb because it is the right decision to
In Solomon Asch’s experiment, he found how people are more likely to be influenced by peer pressure into choosing an answer they know is wrong, just because everyone else thinks it’s right. Similarly, people’s tendency to conform can stifle a lot of valuable comments and/or constructive criticism. However, I believe that George Marshall had a strong sense of moral responsibility because he always stayed true to himself and what he thought was
The first structure is the Panopticon. This structure is placed in the middle of a prison as a watch tower. “The Panopticon is a machine for dissociating the see/ being seen dyad: in the peripheric ring, one is totally seen, without ever seeing; in the central tower, one sees everything without ever being seen.” This structure is used to intimidate prisoners by implying that they are always being watched; even if there is no one in the watch tower. Instilling fear within inmates becomes a form of discipline in the prison system. “The historical moment of the disciplines was the moment when an art of the human body was born, which was directed not only at the growth of its skills, nor at the intensification of its subjectification, but at the formation of a relation that in the mechanism itself makes it more obedient as it becomes more useful, and conversely.” This statement solidifies the idea that the body is structured to its surroundings, and in the process of conforming it maintains the obedience needed to live within
Mark, age 17, is serving 13 years in the L.A. County Men’s Jail and when asked about how he felt about the situation he said, “little kid, he should be put in a program. When you send them to the pen all you making is a better criminal.” What Mark said is right criminal youth would be better off being placed in programs that help them get their life back on track, not placed into prison with a bunch of adults who have been criminals for years. A teen placed in a prison rather that a juvenile facility faces much more risk of repeating their criminal behavior and continuing down a dangerous path. When a youth is placed into an adult prison they are missing out on an important part of growing up, education. As said by Jessica Lahey, a contributing writer to New York Times and the Atlantic, "On any given day, 10,000 juveniles are housed in adult prisons and jails.
“Over time it destroys them psychologically and brings outrage and sadism and violence and brutality”(Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015). If my state was planning on opening up a supermax prison, I would present them with the ways inmates can earn their way out is by self-control, following the direction of the staff, and participate in work-study programs as well as educational programs. Although “supermax prisons subject inmates to extreme isolation and sensory deprivation for extended periods of time, the main goal and focus are to teach them how to obey the laws of the facility and have respect for the staff and other inmates”(Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015). In order to released from supermax inmates will have to go under monitoring to ensure that they have gain control of their behaviors
Constructive speech Today My partner and I will be talking about if solitary confinement is cruel and unusual punishment. I am the opposition on this subject so we think that it is not a cruel and unusual punishment. The definition of solitary confinement is a form of imprisonment where an inmate is concealed from all human contact except the guard that takes care of you, but you have some time to walk around in a bigger room then your cell for exercise. The eighth amendment defines cruel and unusual punishment as torture and death by hanging or other murderous death sentences like in England how they had the guillotine and if you did something bad then they would cut your head off, Also pillory from medieval times, and being disemboweled
For example the Academy teaches the importance of not conversing with the inmates, but a vital way to get the inmates to follow the rules one must build some sort of relationship with them. While some CO’s treated the inmates like friends and others treated the same inmates like dirt, Conover found an in between, befriending them and hating them. He gained some sort of trust but not much at all so that he wasn’t taken advantage of. He was professional but still had some sort of humanity. This is what I would do when it came to contact and inmate relationship.
A tragic hero must be fundamentally good but have a fatal flaw that ultimately leads to their downfall. McMurphy truly was a fundamentally good person.. Throughout the course of the novel, he grew to really care about the other patients on the ward. In the beginning he annoyed Nurse Ratched solely for his own benefit and entertainment. As time went on he realized he needed to stand up for the other men on the ward.
He lets them know what things they ought to avoid and piles divisions for them. The size to feel for the Crakers and even the straightforward capacity to advise stories would have been lost to another individual from the compound society. Jimmy wasn't only the most idealistic equipped man for the employment he was the main man for the occupation. The Crakers worship him and notice his words, and he, in spite of discovering them irritating, helps them in the new world they have been brought
The negative effects on prison inmates due to solitary confinement are: psychological harm, physical harm, and a greater harm on the individuals in their communities and themselves after they are released. Firstly, one negative effect on inmates due to solitary confinement is the risk of psychological impairment. Extreme isolation, such as solitary confinement, can cause severe and permanent effects on a person’s mental and emotional health (Scientific American, 2013). When they are released from solitary confinement, several inmates continue to suffer from sleep
