Stalin used this to advantage during the time period of his 5 year plans. He threatened anyone and everyone below him that if they did not do their work correctly, they would be sent to the Gulag’s. It was known to be a difficult and severe environment and many were scared of these camps and so tried their hardest to avoid being sent there. Stalin was very wary of the Gulag camps, and if he felt that anyone was spying on Russia or trying to sabotage the constructions, they were put on trial. 55 workers were accused of sabotaging the Shakhty coal-mines and despite their innocence, 5 were shot.

This hunger strike was directly related to the 2000 riot followed by recurring violent attacks on inmates. Because of this violence, all of the gang leaders were placed into the Secure Housing Unit, otherwise known as the SHU or Isolation. These gang leaders have remained in the SHU since the riot of 2000. Other prisoners have also been added to this list for their involvement in gang activity, violent acts, and serious rule violations. During these hunger strikes, the prisoners were attempting to get their gang leaders removed from the SHU and placed back into general population.
While watching the Stanford Prison Experiment video, I came to find that the prisoners didn’t show much loyalty to each other after a while. At first, during the second day of the experiment, the prisoners joined together with rebellion by putting the rails of their beds against the door. Prisoner 819 that started the rebellion was put in the solitary confinement room they called “the hole”, while the remaining prisoners were punished for what that prisoner did. After a while they stopped rebelling with each other because the guards punishments became more intense. It became every prisoner for himself.
Volunteers that were assigned as prisoners found out about their acceptance into the experiment when they were arrested in their home or on campus by real police. Investigation into human nature followed. Prisoners experienced being degraded, all types of punishment, despair, and depression as they started to actually believe they were prisoners. Guards took their role seriously as they enforced the law and asserted power and authority. The Stanford Prison Experiment, which was supposed to last for two weeks, ended after six days when researchers realized that some of the guards were becoming very abusive and some of the prisoners were forgetting that they were not real prisoners, and that this was just an experiment.
The film follows Said, Vinz and Hubert over a span of twenty-four hours on the day after the riots occurred. They have grown up in the Parisian suburbs where high levels of diversity coupled with the racist and oppressive police force have raised tensions to a critical breaking point. A friend of theirs, Abdel, has been brutalized by the police shortly before the riot and lies in a coma. Vinz, seeks revenge by simply killing a police officer in retaliation. Hubert on the other hand believes that murdering a police officer will do little to help their situation as it will most likely either intensify the rioting and tension between the police and the people or that it will just land them in prison.
In the death camps, the officers change the prisoners names to numbers, taking away the last thing that the prisoners could still use to remember the past, for they stripped them of every possible memory of earlier happiness. There is a great deal of scepticism among all of those who are in the camps, for they hear of such terrible things but do not take them to heart because of the level of craziness, they do not think that humans are capable enough of doing such harm to other humans in their right mind. Many actions of depleting the human dignity among their prisoners in One day in the life of Ivan Denisovich were taken from those in the German concentration camps. The prisoners in the Russian labor camps were treated horribly, having to follow strict orders. Only when the human body is put under such conditions, does it focus only on daily survival of oneself, which is exactly what the leaders of
The police openly fired on the protestors, and the number of deaths is estimated to be anywhere between 200-1000 people. Although it was not the tsar that gave the order, many people held him accountable for the massacre which was the final break of trust that the people had for their ‘Little Father.’ He was no longer thought of as being on their side: he was the opposition. The above statement could be accurate, as the reformist groups provided the people with a lot of ideas which challenged the tsar and his ideals. In recent years there had been an uncontrolled increase in the populations of the working class. This led to overcrowded towns and cities resulting in poor working and living conditions.
If he had an impartial jury, he would have been a free man. However, none of the jurors believed that Tom was telling the truth. They were raised to hate all black people. White people have been hurting and killing black people for centuries because of hatred. Therefore, the black community in Maycomb was crippled with fear.
One instance of this would be the recent scandal that has shaken not only the Sherriff’s department but the community as a whole. The chief deputy, who happens to be the school board president as well, was accused of repeated statutory rape of a minor under his command. This behavior is obviously unacceptable, but the employees of the Sherriff’s department refused to believe that their supervisor and co-worker could be capable of this kind of thing. His behavior was atrocious and if he was a regular citizen everyone would have been ready to throw him to the wolves. Because he was who he was and he did what he did for the community people believed that it was impossible for him to do the things that he was accused of.
