That only gave officers a reason to feel the need to abuse and assault you. Another example of brutality is when in the ministry of love, prisoners are cruelly punished for their crimes. Prisoners are sent to sessions where they endure things such as electric shock, rat caging of the face stretched and beaten. Winston received shock as one of his punishments. “He started and almost cried out.
Wrongful convictions have plagued the world throughout history. When crimes are committed the public feels ascertain a way about the situation.

On many occasions the people who are coerced into false confessions are have severe mental impairments that prevent them from functioning as a normal person with out the impairments would.

With this law follows a lot of controversy. Some people believe that it is too harsh and can ruin a person's life. Others believe it is well deserved as you get 3 chances to better yourself.
Wrongful conviction is a situation where a person undergoes punishment for a crime they did not commit. It is a conviction reached in disputed or unfair trial. DNA evidence has been used in recent years to clear individuals falsely convicted so as to avoid execution of innocent people. There are means to overturn wrongful conviction as exhibited by most criminal justice systems, but this is not always easy to achieve. The following are the common causes of wrongful
