Solitary confinement goes back many years when the Quakers and Calvinists began the punishment in the nineteenth century (Warnes). Like many people now, prisoners back then said they preferred any other punishment that wasn’t isolation. There was an article that was titled something like, “Solitary Confinement, A Punishment worse than Death.” While the prisoners are still allowed to live, they are deprived from so many things and are exposed to metal illnesses. So what is solitary confinement? Solitary confinement is when a prisoner is locked away in a relatively small cell away from any human contact.
The real deciding factor in whether or not a person makes this transition is whether or not they give into their primal instincts. Once a person begins embracing their primal instincts there is no limit to what they are capable of doing. “The Most Dangerous Game,” by Richard Connell, takes you on a realistic journey that shows how a sick game can cause a person to ignore their morals and embrace their inner violent nature. General Zaroff is a prime example of a realistic villain who has given into his base animal desires. While it is discovered later on in the story that General Zaroff is a monster, in the beginning, he doesn 't appear to be such.
War is undeniably hell. Monstrosities and wanton cruelty are fostered from this senseless drive for violence. The very best humanity has to offer may enter proudly just to end up shipped back home in a body bag or worse. They could return as an entirely different person. The experience of witnessing and committing such atrocities is enough to turn the sanest individual into the next Joker.
The tragedy of Julius Caesar (1599) is regarded as an archetypal pattern of crime and punishment in that it handles the crime of the assassination of Caesar and the entailing consequences of such a horrible deed, through the punishment of the conspirators. Certainly Caesar is a good man who rightly deserves ascending the throne of Rome on the evidence that the people of Rome love and respect him to the extent that they acclaim him as king over them. although, he has his own personal flaw which unconsciously move him towards implant the seeds of his own destruction. There are, moreover, two tragic heroes in this play, Brutus and Caesar, although the one is treated more fully than the other. Each brings about his own destruction, simply because
Supermax prisons hold inmates that are considered “the worst of the worst”. Prisoners that are in supermax prisons are isolated 23 hours out of the day.

However, Hitchcock has played a little bit more and twisted the plot that the traces on Edward’s corpse, after investigation, still showed that John was the killer. With Dr. Brulov suggesting to accept the reality and start a new life, everything seemed to be gloomy. But guess what? Hitch has twisted it again. After Constance returned to the asylum, she found out the inconsistency of Dr. Murchison’s speech and discovered the true devil, using psychoanalysis to get away thereafter.
Cameron Oldfield Mrs. Brincks English III 15 November, 2015 The Crucible and Red Scare Imagine being thrown in jail, blamed for something that you didn't do .The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, is a story about how certain propaganda and false accusations can ruin lives, just like in the case of the Red Scare.

Both trials resulted in terrible outcomes, with both ending with innocent people being put to death and shunned from society. Arthur Miller was one of the most popular American playwrights
Death sentences are not predicted by the heinousness of the crime, they are predicted by the bad work of the defense lawyers, the race of the person on trial or the race of the victim, and in what county and state in which the crime occurred. Between 1976 to 2015, 1,392 executions occurred in the United States, and 995 of them occurred in the South. It has been proven that the criminal justice system fails to protect the innocent and those with serious mental disabilities and illnesses from execution. Every method of execution comes with a very high risk of extreme pain and
When a murder is committed there is not taking it back and the same goes for when an execution happens. Both cases result in the loss of human life that can’t be revived. 4) Ernest van den Haag: The death penalty in a way lets the murderer know that, what they did was deemed wrong by the community of their peers and can’t live for it(pg.235). The death penalty is a punishment that the community feels qualifies as life for a life and is justified. 5) Ernest van den Haag: Penal sanctions deemed useful long term because they form necessary consequences that help to control crime (pg.233).
The FBI collection of articles of Famous Cases & Criminals prominently portrays the mass murder mayhem of Timothy McVeigh 's efforts to topple the government, thus making headline news in many area news articles around the world. Timothy McVeigh was sentenced to death because he took many lives, performed a terrorist bombing on a government building in Oklahoma City, and received fifteen counts of murder, and as Exodus 21:24 states, “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.” This is a concept on which capital punishment is based. Personally speaking, every person should have a chance to make up for their mistakes, ensuring that their soul may go through some healing. I see the point of those who say that a murderer would deserve to die, Timothy McVeigh had murdered thousands in a single blast. I understand that those families all want revenge, I understand the pain they are going through; myself, as well as many others,
American sniper Chris Kyle was murdered February 2, 2013. His murderer Eddie Ray Routh plead insane and blamed mental illness, he was found guilty of his crimes and sentenced to life in prison after the evidence of him ordering fast food after the murder was brought forth. An act he cannot perform with his “mental illness.” Ruth Lee Johnson J.D. graduate of Harvard Law school writes about the defense saying “Insanity is a legal term, not a medical term.” This gives the jury the power to determine insanity, opposed to a psychologist. Does the jury have the qualifications to make such decisions and even if some are truly insane how can you differentiate between them and those who want an easy way out?
For example, capital punishment is cruel, both physically and psychologically. People who might have been innocent have been executed. The electric chair is the most horrific methods of execution still being practiced in the United States. Death penalty is an example of how little our government values human life.
