This experiment individually effected each person involved and its unfathomable to imagine seeing someone who caused you pain/ you caused pain to after it was all over. I can only hope that this portraying the roles of the guards were mortified by what they’d let happen under their watch and that those playing the prisoners were able to mentally recover relatively quickly. Although some institutions are designed to resist critical evaluation theres still a way to bring attention to these issues.
Perhaps we will never be able to judge the prison guards or Eshleman’s behavior but we now know something that they did not know: different situations will bring out different sides of us. We get the opportunity to practice what we believe and stand true to who we are; knowing that life may present us with uncomfortable scenarios. We now get to choose whether to stick with our morals or not and can no longer blame our behavior entirely on our situations. It is probable that we may still be influenced by what goes on around us but that should not deter us from trying to be the person we think we are our everyday lives.
This is because Danforth feels that if he is lenient with his decisions, it looks as though he is weak and being unfair to the rest who did not get postponed. Since Danforth has authority over the rest of the court, John Proctor is later executed due to Danforth signature. Additionally, he uses the number of cases he has had in court and the amount he has put in jail as a number to hold over peoples heads. The number Danforth claims is a point of trying to scare those who may being lying and show that Danforth is merciless. He tells the open court, “And do you know that near to four hundred are in the jails from Marblehead to Lynn, and upon my signature?”(81).

In order for it to be effective one must learn the tips and tricks of the veterans of the job, not just using knowledge from the seven weeks of training. Although that will be effective, I feel as if personal experiences are more efficient and useful in succeeding in the job. “You’re going to learn, CO, that some things they taught you in the Academy can get you killed.” (99) Conover realizes that many officers do not follow the rules that were instructed in the Academy. In order to be a strong and acknowledged correctional officer one must bend the rules a bit to get the inmates to comply.
(Miller, 126). In a short time span, he went from supporting the court to strongly disagreeing with it. Even though this is not said directly in writing, I believe that his mindset changed because he knew that most if not all of these people were innocent. He knew the truth, it just took a little while for him to truly accept it. Also, before they hung Proctor, he desperately tried to save him and the others that refused to confess.
In one of the guard’s diary, prior to the start of the experiment he says “As I am a pacifist and nonaggressive individual I cannot see a time when I might guard and/or maltreat another living thing.” (as cited in Zimbardo, 1971, para.44) as the experiment goes on this same guard changes his way of thinking “they were fighting to keep their identity. But we were always there to how them who was boss.” (as cited in Zimbardo, 1971, para.21). Zimbardo (1971) clams the guard’s became ‘sadistic’.
On 04-20-2017 I responded to the wooded area West of Walmart. I was called to the scene by the Port Richey Code Enforcement officers. I was advised that defendant and her boyfriend, identified as, Thomas Blow, were trespassing on private property. I recognized both the defendant and Blow from their D.A.V.I.D. photos and previous encounters. The defendant also identified herself as, Stephanie Trost.
In a few groups, prison guards plan pre-sentencing reports with broad foundation data about the guilty party to offer judges some assistance with deciding sentences. The occupation of prison guards is to ensure the offices that hold wrongdoers are secure and safe. They manage the everyday guardianship of prisoners. They likewise administer the discharge forms for prisoners and once in a while tell casualties of changes in the wrongdoer 's status. the arrangement of practices and foundations of governments coordinated at maintaining social control, deflecting and moderating wrongdoing, or endorsing the individuals who disregard laws with criminal punishments and recovery endeavors.
Many people, before reading this article, might not have been aware of the rapid increase of incarceration rates and the overcrowding issue. This appeals to the reader’s sense of logic by stating that the vast majority of them are nonviolent because it shows them that that is where the overcrowding issue resides. This gets the readers thinking that alternative ways of dealing with nonviolent offenders might be necessary to solving the issue in the criminal justice system. Zuckerman makes the reader understand that reforming the prison system is a reasonable solution to the many problems generated by non-violent offenders being imprisoned. Not only does the author make the reader aware of the issue, but he provides a logical solution for it.
In the milgram obedience study, volunteers were selected unknowingly to participate in na study in regard to compliance with authority. Participants believed that they had to induce shock on the person on the other side because they were told to do so by a higher authority. If we were to test this experiment out today, I do believe it would play a similar path. I believe that there would be conflict between authority and the participants. Still in today’s society the average person is still follows through with a higher authority figure even if something doesn’t seem right; “if a doctor says its okay, he’s a doctor he knows what he’s talking about.”
People have always had an overwhelming desire to be accepted by others, and will even adopt the morals of their peers in order to conform to society. In the story “The Lottery,” Shirley Jackson depicts the danger of ignorance and the extent in which it influences society. Not only is this applicable to the story, but is also relevant to the real world and historical events such as witch hunts. In the short story “The Lottery,” a group of villagers join together each year for their tradition.
Title (psychology #7) In the Abu Ghraib Torture and the Milgram experiment even though they had different reasoning behind it, the same concept is behind it. The obedience to authority people tend to have is either to obey or disobey authority and do what they think is right. In both this situation many people decided to obey authority and break their morals.
