The doors are old, the locks are rusty. This is because almost nobody wished to obey The Council, certainly not twice. Lark Hill is a private building for political prisoners. V was at Lark Hill to be exterminated, likely for knowing too much about the government. There is a huge fire and almost everyone dies, except V and Delia.
These efforts to block ex-felons to vote are unfair, undemocratic, and politically or racially motivated. Others who disagree may say they have shown poor judgement and should not be trusted with a vote. This is false because no one is perfect and everyone
One of our presidents defied the Supreme Court, murdered people, and destroyed thousands of lives. This could only be one person in U.S. history, Andrew Jackson. He did many horrible things during his life, some were barbaric and were unprecedented for his time. He forced thousands of Native Americans from their homelands during the Trail of Tears. He had many traits that made him that made him do many bad things.
Evidence proved this with the publicity of the Abu Ghraib incident, where many inmates were tortured by United States soldiers. These soldiers were convicted for their crimes but it was taken care of “in house” as people would say. The United Nations did not persecute the said soldiers further than the United States military court, nor did they investigate the claims of the soldiers that they were under orders. Although the United States used torture to great effect in the past, torture is cruel, inhumane, and has no place in modern society. Torture is cruel, it leaves the victims devastated both physically and mentally.

This keeps the country relatively blind to any ideas that are not oppressed by the government. The society of Gilead demonstrates very similar situations of oppressive censorship. Commanders have the privilege of being the only people that are able to read books. The only book that they are allowed to read is the Bible though. Even the Bible itself is modified and twisted to only contain passages from the Old Testament that instill fear and encourage mass, blind following of
U.S. v. Bailey, 44 U.S. 394 (1980) Facts of the Case: On the morning of August 26, 1976 Clifford Bailey and three other prisoners (James T. Cogdell, Ronald C. Cooley, and Ralph Walker) were at the District of Columbia Jail, where they removed a bar from the window and proceeded to use bedsheets that were knotted together in order to escape for one month to three and a half months out of custody (“United States v. Bailey Et Al”, 1980). This led to the violation of statute 18 U. S. C. § 751, which is about escaping the federal jurisdiction of custody from them. The escapees did not immediately turn themselves in, but did say that they did not do so because they were told, indirectly by who they claimed was the FBI, that they would be killed
It ruins the offender’s life and does nothing to help them rehabilitate. They do not learn to do better when they are locked with thousands of other prisoners for the rest of their lives. They cannot recover without the hope of getting out of prison. They think there is no reason to even try. As Gail Garinger stated on his article Juveniles Don’t Deserve Life Sentences, adolescents sentenced to die in prisons “were told that they could never change and that no one cared what became of them.”
It stripped men of their basic rights, and consumed the life out of them. Most criminals sent to the Penitentiary committed more serious crimes, therefore were dehumanized and treated like the animals that everyone thought they were (NebraskaHistory). Frank speaks about how he is forgetting to speak, the Penitentiary enforced constant silence at times, other were afraid to be abused if they spoke (Ancestry). Fear helped mold the predators into prey, as the criminals must have learned quickly what their conditions were like. The State Penitentiary was the only place in Nebraska that help executions, so the prisoners had more to fear than the abuse (death penalty).
There were many prison camps used during the Civil War and they were all terrible. The prison camps during the Civil War helped claim the lives of thousands of the deaths from the Civil War, and most people don’t know how much of an impact the prison camps had on the total number of deaths throughout the Civil War. They killed thousands of soldiers on both sides, making an impact on each side’s soldier count, and adding another fear to the soldier’s head. The prison camps used during the Civil War killed as many as 56,000
By today 's standards the governments of the colonies were semi-democratic. Each colony had its own legislature of land owning males and a governor that was sent from britain. Each colony was able to create and enforce it’s own laws. However, the british government could change any rules if it did was strongly opposed to any rules that the colonies had. Despite the fact that the Colonies could make their own rules the did not control their financial system.

We are hearing the story through the eyes of a prisoner named Mumia ABU-Jamal. He says that all the Death Rows have one goal human storage in an austere world in which condemned prisoners. Life in death row is horrible for Mumia ABU-Jamal because he doesn’t get any education in his prison. He says that visits are the worst because you have to be stripped. Several prisoners have protested in the visit strip they say there is no reason
The American government mistakenly considered those who were deemed disloyal a threat to the United States. Because of that, the obvious red flag to answering no and no, respectively, to Questions 27 and 28 on the loyalty questionnaire, was being separated from the other inmates and isolated at a concentration camp called Tule Lake. The conditions at Tule Lake were filthy and overcrowded, and riots and protests were commonplace. Those who protested against their imprisonment were often sent to federal jail.
