Ronald Joncas, an inmate in the documentary, notes that it is illogical to expect the inmates to behave as humans yet they are treated like animals while in jail (Edge). The idleness in the cells prompts the prisoners to do the craziest of things including cutting and even sacking their ball, such an inmate may end up crazy after the jail term, and the prison, therefore, fails in its objective which is correcting the behavior (Edge). The filmmaker aims to draw the attention of the federal government and the state of the prisons in America. Solitary cells should be minimally used so that they serve as a corrective measure and not making the inmates worse. The information is accurate because it is based on real life experiences.

As Bartleby is in prison he still is acting the same as he did when he was at the office. He just sits there and is staring at the brick wall. He also is choosing to starve himself. When the lawyer goes to visit him in the jail a man named “Grub-man” (Melville 155) goes to him and asks him “Does he want to starve” (Melville 155). This again goes along with him being the antagonist because he constantly is opposing everything that everyone offers
In 1947 he was sent to Shawshank Prison where the story revolved around Andy’s transformation to prison life and his journey as an inmate in the prison. The movie was produced by Niki Marvin and directed by Frank Darabont. • The subculture that I will be analyzing is corruption and physical abuse depicted by the guards and warden at Shawshank prison. • The physical abuse and corruption started very early in the movie, Andy Dufresne’s first night in Shawshank an inmate was beaten to death by Captain Hadley because of his outbursts late at night.

Billy the Poet, a Nothinghead and the protagonist, explains J. Edgar Nation’s story of developing the ethical birth control pills after his experience at the Grand Rapids Zoo. Although he only intended these pills to “make monkeys in the springtime fit things for a Christian family to see” (Vonnegut 36), they were later forced onto the American people to create a better, more civilized society in an overpopulated world. Although many see no problem with ethical birth control, enforcing morality has always remained a form of government oppression, which suppresses a person’s individuality. In fact the government is controlling “not birth but sexuality” (Meek, Reed, Ploeg, & Adcock 5), which is a blatant overreach of power. In “Welcome to the Monkey House”, Kurt Vonnegut satirizes the conflict of ethics in government by producing an obscure and almost-humorous plot in the short story.
This experiment consisted of 24 male college students, selected out of a volunteer pool, who were chosen to partake in a mock prison. The subjects were assigned as being prisoners or guards, and were told to simulate a prison setting (“A Pirandellian prison” 1-13). Although the experiment proved to be unsuccessful, it teaches us a lot about human nature, and what we are capable of doing. Philip Zimbardo’s experiment shows that everyone conforms to their surroundings, and adapt to situations. The “prisoners” in the experiment were forced to adapt and started behaving as though they were actually prisoners.
However, the narrator grants him leniency and tolerates the defiance until he discovers that Bartleby had been living inside the office. Eventually, the police arrest him for vagrancy and send him to prison where he unfortunately dies, shocking the narrator.
It is true that there are some circuses who don’t physically beat animals and choose not to harm animals physically, however there are forms of abuse other than physical that some people are unaware of. Because circus animals are abused beyond physical, all circuses should be set under harsher banning laws. Animals being locked in cages and taken away from their homes can be a form of psychological and emotional abuse. A research article, edited and cited by the Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology who are a biotechnology research establishment in India, discusses a study of the effects of wildlife in captivity, specifically the effects on the animal 's biology. The study, on Bengal tigers and leopards in Indian zoos, demonstrated stereotypical behavior of animals in captivity from stress compared to the biological and environmental factors the animals faced.
All of these companies are just a fraction of companies that test their products on animals such as mice, rabbits, primates, cats, and dogs. Yes even man’s best friend isn’t exempt from being injected with drugs and diseases in the name of science. These companies have continued their evil in the dark, in countries with little to no regulation on animal testing. The only way to stop these companies from experimenting on and abusing animals is to show them that they no longer operate in the shadows, but their wrongdoings are on display for the world to see, and that the world does not like what it sees. We must patronize companies with principles, and encourage others to follow.
Also, says it can be a source of national income and experimental field for example, experiments done on rats like replanting organs and in science of anatomy. However, According to Gershoff , some people and organization oppose using animals in medical researches like PETA, which is People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is one of the well-known organization is strongly against animals experimentation and fight for animals welfare and rights .

For example, in the months leading up to the event, the attacker fought a student in the school cafeteria and threw a chair against the wall of a classroom. The court reasoned that this was constructive notice, and that the school should have intervened when an incident involving the student broke out because they were aware of his “assaultive behavior.” In MacCormack, however,
According to social psychologists, there are primarily three specific ways people can, essentially, “turn to the dark side”: dispositional, situational, and Zimbardo’s discovery, systemic. Through this experiment, Zimbardo observed how the system of the jail affected the participants: for the “guards” there really wasn’t a system. Their power was unlimited; they had no boundaries. Because of this, they started doing small, evil acts, which quickly escalated to larger-scale acts of near malice. For the “prisoners”, the system was unsteadily and randomly created and reliant upon the “guards”, creating a very unhealthy system
Grassian (1983), documented adverse psychological consequences of long-term solitary confinement. He conducted psychiatric evaluations of 14 poisoners who were plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit challenging the conditions of their solitary confinement at the Massachusetts Institution at Walpole. They were lept in 18,x2.7 calls with solid steel doors, there was no contact with other prisoners or staff , no personal items or reading books except a bible. This went on for 2 months. Grassian found psychopathological conditions known as SHM syndrome.
The first instance where inappropriate behavior was conducted by the prisoners was after the first day, when a rebellion broke out. “The prisoners removed their stocking caps, ripped off their numbers, and barricaded themselves inside the cells by putting their beds against the door” (“SPE” 8). This is the initial crude behavior that evoked the prisoners to descend into a savage state. It was due to the power that the situation had over these prisoners. On the other hand, in LOTF, readers see how the boys are adjusting quite nicely to their environment, then there is a subtle change in the ways the boys act.
