The pristine blankness of their mind is susceptible to impressions, both positive and negative, from external factors, primarily parenting, schooling and their interactions with society. Victor’s physical and emotional reactions to his child tarnish this slate, altering the monster’s interpretation of the parent-child relationship and that of his part in the social order. Victor’s “bitterness of disappointment” reflects through his avoidance of his creation and foreshadows the abuse and abandonment that would ensue for the rest of the novel (Shelley 60). The monster cannot help his actions and thoughts because the only moral confidant that could possibly understand him is the absent

Two police officers and one of them is a racist and harassed an African American couple, that are in the show business. A Hispanic man that works as a locksmith and tries to take care of his daughter and wife, and a Persian family man that is discriminated by an American in a shop and mistaking him from an Arabic man. Some of these people come in contact with each other in some way or another, in a negative situation that deals with racial stereotyping of each other and prejudices. (“Crash (2004 film),” 2015) The Hispanic man takes a distance from the stereotype that Hispanic men are gang members and criminals and does not want to be affiliated with that, he works as a locksmith to support his family. This stereotype was shown as an example when he was working for a white woman, as she loudly expresses her concern that he was going to steal they keys and give it to other gang members so they break in because of his background and his appearance.
• Denial of the right to liberty and security in the political prison camps The denial of the right to liberty and security and other human rights violations are particularly blatant in political prison camps. Political prison camps (kwan-li-so) are the final destination of those suspected of being politically, ideologically or economically subversive to the system. Kwanli-so are operated by the Ministry of State Security and the SSD. The Government has recently started acknowledging the existence of these camps, even though they are well-known and dreaded by ordinary citizens for being often places of no return, as victims imprisoned there have nearly no chance to ever be released. Four political prison camps are known to exist; smaller
He spent countless days, even years, doing everything he could to hide the affair from the town and his congregation, in order to maintain his power and elite status within the community. By burying his sins deeper and deeper within his heart, Dimmesdale only made the guilt and regret that oppressed his mind stronger. Throughout the book, Hawthorne used the metaphor of a prison to represent the mental effects of Dimmesdale’s sins isolating him from the world and ultimately driving him insane. He chose the prison as a symbol because many criminals go insane within their jail cell due to the constant isolation that forces them to become trapped within their own mind and heart, where they are left to face the constant guilt and regret from their sins. Hawthorne brilliantly expounded upon this metaphor and symbol in relation to Dimmesdale’s life when he wrote, “...the wooden jail was already marked with weather-stains and other indications of age, which gave a yet darker aspect to its beetle-browed and gloomy front”(Hawthorne 45).
Another example of a false execution is in Carlos De Luna 's case, who was executed in 1989 for the stabbing of Wanda Lopez, a convenience store clerk. There were two eyewitnesses who played a key role in the conviction of De Luna. Before the murder and robbery, George Aguirre was filling up at the gas station, when he saw a man standing outside the store slide a knife with the blade exposed into his pocket and enter. The man asked Aguirre for a ride to a nightclub, but he refused and went inside the store to warn Lopez about the suspicious man. Aguirre left and Lopez called the police to describe the man.

Another error was a sheriff being involved in the case so much that didn’t even have anything to do with him. The sheriff wanted him to be guilty right away because of the incident that happened between Avery and the sheriff’s wife. The sheriff stated to Avery “I got you now.” The jail usually has a list of the people who were arrested the night before. When Stevens’s lawyer came to check his name wasn’t on the list. The sheriff ordered his name not be on the list.
Outsiders, who have never stepped a foot in prison, do not know what it is like. They do not know the conditions, the horrible treatment, or the everlasting days. It’s impossible to know what it is like behind the bars of a prison cell; individuals can only go on what they believe. It says in the Bible that thou shall not kill. Capital punishment is murder, and overall does more bad than
Atticus is a guy who once won a case for a black man in a rape trial, but now he attends the local Citizens ' Council, a patriarchal white organization dedicated to talking about the dangers of black people.
