Even though Jefferson is the one that is locked up, Grant is also, in a sense, in jail. He has had so many opportunities to leave his town and find a better life, but decides to stay because he feels like he has no control over his life. Grant’s first few visits to Jefferson don’t go so well. Grant has a very negative attitude towards the situation because he has no idea what he can do to turn Jefferson into a man. He feels as if it is a lost cause.
After only six days (rather than the intended two weeks) Zimbardo and his colleagues, aware of the ethical implications of using human subjects, had to terminate the simulation because such frightening behaviour had taken place. The student guards had begun to take pleasure in cruel treatment of prisoners. Physical punishment was prohibited, but the guards created their own forms of abuse, including solitary confinement, hourly roll calls throughout the night, and removal of blankets from uncooperative inmates. About a third were tyrannical and arbitrary in their use of power; and the remaining guards did not interfere with this tough approach. At the same time, the prisoners meekly accepted not only their confinement but also their mistreatment.
He makes the anticipation of bad news worse than the bad news itself. As Kumalo “arrives” at the point of sorrow, it is a relief because although he still feels crushed to know all that has become of his son is a murderer, he at least stands on solid ground. This is shown when he goes to visit his son before the trial and loses respect for his brother because his brother refuses to try to grieve. He knows that by refusing to do so, his brother is also refusing to heal. Kumalo knows that there is no purpose in extending the journey, because then he would just be extending the pain.

• I felt very sorry for both of the children although the older one made an inappropriate act of revenge. • If I though about the incident more carefully and seriously, the younger boy would not have been harmed physically. Pros: • I immediately stopped the argument and avoided violence occurring initially. • If I did not intervene and the teacher who was on duty still did not turn up, more pupils around that table would be involved and the small argument might turn into a more serious incident. Cons: • The older boy might have hurt the younger one more seriously and my judgement may have certainly given the pupils a bad model or misled them.
This is because of the way Dimmesdale acts after his sins. He has realized what he has done and he tries to purify himself, but goes about it the wrong way. And yes, Dimmesdale lets Hester suffer alone most of her life because he does not confess, but at least he had guilt for it and he suffers in his own way. Chillingworth makes Dimmesdale suffer greatly during his life and he feels fulfilled by that because he is doing what he set out to do, to make him suffer and feel terrible for what he has done. And by masking his identity, he makes Dimmesdale wonder why he would want to do this to him.
