The criticisms of the supermax prisons are: Deprivation of medical facilities to the inmates as well as the criteria for an accused to inflict which strongly violates the inmates' personal lives. The inmates tend to suffer from mental imbalances as they are being locked away in isolation. According to John (2013), "Solitary confinement as it currently exists in modern supermax prisons is a practice with some serious flaws" (para. 1). Many prisoners that suffer from mental illness are sent to supermax prisons. Therefore, in order to control their insane conduct, they are placed in dark cells, which further deteriorate their mental health conditions.
Asylums were arguably the most widespread and controversial establishment for disabled people. Provided that there was an extreme lack of knowledge on disabilities in general, asylums each had their own methods of diagnosing and types of treatments. These treatments ranged from kind attention to horrible mistreatment (Victorian Era Asylums). As investigations of asylums increased, reports more commonly included details describing patients receiving cruel treatment and sometimes even starvation (Victorian Era Asylum and Workhouses). Additionally, they shed light on their extreme overcrowding, which led to many other problems (Hulonce).

Over a century ago in 1875 the construction began in what is now known as the Yuma Territorial Prison. Known to be one of many of Yuma’s historical artifacts the Territorial Prison was in operation for thirty three years, holding up to 3,069 prisoners and obtaining its first prisoner on July 1, 1876. Although the Yuma Territorial Prison was viewed as having a bad reputation, it actually treated the inmates fairly well. The prison maintained rules which were enforced and followed by the inmates.
Prisons in the 1971 were a truly horrific place. Not only were criminals being punished by incarceration but they were being day in and day out by cruelty of the prison staff. This corrupt system of retribution became evident to a man named Philip G. Zimbardo. Zimbardo’s initial aim of the Stanford Prison experiment was to determine if it was the environment or if it was the conflicting personalities between guards and criminals that brought about the brutality in prisons. The experiment developed into something more abstract.
During Stalins reign (1879-1953) the citizens of Russia were subjected to insane poverty, hunger and distress. They had a constant threat of getting thrown into the Gulag if they spoke against Stalins way. During our discussion a very good point was raised about how Russia itself was almost like a Gulag. The citizens were not allowed to speak their own opinion in fear of being
Imagine being locked away underground, in a room with no window, no source of sunlight, neglected from any source of human contact; it is a terrifying thought, is it not? Now, imagine living in such a manner for days, months, years to decades, this is the haunting reality for numerous prison inmates that are subjected to solitary confinement. Solitary confinement is the act of isolating people in closed cells for 22-24 hours a day, restricted from human contact, for periods of time ranging from days to decades (Solitary Watch, 2012). There are beyond 80,000 men, women, and children imposed to solitary confinement in prisons throughout the United States (American friends service committee, 2010). The negative effects on prison inmates due to solitary confinement are: psychological harm, physical harm, and a greater harm on the individuals in their communities and themselves after they are released.

In 1864, after being given whiskey by two Franklin settlers one young Indian from Chief Washakie’s tribe tried to run over Franklin settler Mary Ann Alder with his horse. During the event, one other settler shot the Indian and had to leave in order to alert the Minutemen in Cache Valley. In order to pacify the Indians several Franklin settlers, including Bishop Lorenzo Hill Hatch, Peter Maughan and Ezra T. Benson of Logan, spent the night at the Indian camp with Chief Washakie discussing what took place. As payment the settlers who had sold the Indians the whiskey were to give flour, cheese, other food items, and two yokes of oxen to the Indians. Overall these events and the treaty, not only enabled the Franklin settlement to expand, but it also enabled other settlements to expand outside of their fort boundaries, encouraged more settlers to the area ,and promoted the use of local natural resources and the expansion of new industries for the
