(“Abuse and Authority - The Abu Ghraib Comparison,” 2015). In both of these situations, the guards working at the facilities were not trained in managing prisons or prisoners. The difference noted was that although the guards of the prison experiment had no reason to fear the prisoners, the guards at Abu Ghraib constantly feared of attacks due to them being outnumbered by prisoners and being in the middle of a war
This is because they do not know how to survive out in the realms of a normal environment, they need that control and dictatorship of someone over their lives. Also, when Nurse Ratched places Billy in a room alone he kills himself. He was placed alone for minutes and could not handle it, he became institutionalized and could not survive on his own. Many of the men in the facility need to be told what to do and how to live. They have become so accustomed to orders that when they leave, they cannot survive because they have become so adapted to their controlled lives in the hospital.
The guards took matters into their own hands and drove the prisoners out of their cells. The guards began to take on cruel and sadistic behaviors by humiliating the prisoners with menial tasks such as cleaning their latrines with their bare hands. After the sixth day the experiment was terminated because it was immoral to the prisoner group, of which lost three members due to mental breakdowns. It was concluded that many people tend to fit into social norms and don’t consider personal responsibility even for acts that are
Mentally ill offenders comprise a huge segment of the country 's prison populace, bringing about various difficulties to correctional administrators who lack formal preparation or instruction on the best way to communicate, look after, and secure this specific populace (Pittaro, 2017). Correctional administrators confront a large group of difficulties with regards to mentally ill inmates. These particular inmates require more supervision and more care with respect to their prosperity in the correctional facility that they reside in. In most facility, the mentally ill prisoners are restricted to the minimum about of counseling services which may prompt troublesome practices. As indicated by an article written by Lloyd I. Sederer, M.D., "All patients have both a right to treatment and a right to refuse treatment (Sederer, n.d).”
That they should be cold, strict, and unnervingly verbally abusive. Time upon time in the film, the volunteer guards were verbally abusive of their power with the prisoners. They often gave them punishments such as, physical exercise, sleep deprivation, as well as revoked their privileges, smoking, parole and comfort items like bedding. In one case they even as far as refusing to provide glasses to one of the prisoners.
He was let out of jail because, he was going to Alcatraz. Capone didn’t know that this was a prison that you can’t own like the other jail he was sent to. Once he got to Alcatraz, he found the rules were very bad. One of the rules was that you could not talk to other prisoners unless you were asking for salt at a meal or a tool at work. If you did talk you would get sent to the hole.
The city’s strict schedules prevent the people their freedom to be in charge of themselves. The Saint of the Pyre had “a thin thread of blood running from the corner of their mouth” when being punished to death for speaking the Unspeakable Word (Rand). In the city a word spoken gave a man his death showing that the collective government controls the people’s choice of words and prevents the people of the city to speak freely. Ayn Rand’s use of imagery portrays the fact that individualism is a right that all humans should have.
The witches were tied up with cords and chains so they “couldn’t torment anyone while imprisoned”. Salem Jail was very close to the coast, and when it rained the jails flooded. Water would cover the floor, rising up to prisoner’s ankles. The jails were infested with rats and lice, which was very unhygienic, many people died of illnesses. Over a dozen people died in Salem Jail (Weiser), if the family wanted to give the relative a proper burial, they had to pay for the removal of the body.
People justify their behavior by assigning responsibility to the authority rather than themselves. So in conclusion the Milgram prison experience was to show the effects of perceived power of focusing on the struggle between prisoners and prison guards and how the students reaction on their experiment going in the prison and being disobeying and obeying authority well not all of them well never mind yes all of them. Till today there are still crimes like this that’s going on inside the prison cell and that they’re hiding what’s going on. They also have no chose but to obey authority or they would be beaten or put in a whole/box by the guards. I just hope nothing like this happen to somebody
In the article, “How do prisoners typically spend their days”, the author states, “If they have no work assignment, they may have a class to attend or spend time in their bunks reading, writing letters, or listening to the radio. … Prisoners may spend evening hours attending classes, watching television, or playing dominoes.” These statements imply that convicts are never going to learn from their previous mistakes if these activities are considered their “punishment.” When prisoners get out of jail, it is likely that nothing major will have changed in their demeanor.
Most prison code consisting of a reverse hierarchy and the distrust of the correctional officers. This underlying belief or code alone leads to major problems when regarding the possible negative behaviors of inmates. The idea that traditional prison culture
I watched in awe as an ignorant TSA officer jeopardized the privacy of every passenger at the checkpoint. Refusing to walk through a metal detector or body scanner will excite the bored TSA employees. The disgraceful pat-down is a favorite by all Transportation Security Administration screeners. In the middle of the checkpoint, TSA officers feel every square inch of a non-complying passenger, who is unable to obtain his or her own belongings. Thousands of horror stories has surfaced, some leading to private screenings and strip searches.
Among the "culture of indifference" among the guards, and an acceptance of gang activity within the prison walls, there is also a "culture of racism" that is pervasive in the prisons. The guards are said to use the "N" word without even thinking about it. The black inmates were deprived of equal access to food and canteen privileges. The report noted that the blacks were the last to enter the dining area and the first to be sent out. They were the last to enter the canteen and sometimes it would be closed prior to their "turn" so they could not make
Didn’t Stanley Williams experience enough hardship to make him into a law-abiding citizen? As I conclude my literary analysis, I wonder if our prison system should be reevaluated in terms of the physical and psychological treatment that inmates receive. It amazes me, that despite being stripped of their individual identity and being made into a prison inmate, prisoners don’t only go through a physical imprisonment, but also a psychological incarceration as they pay society for their wrongdoing; let’s ask ourselves, what is enough
