Is it a curse or a blessing that they have manage to survive another day in a concentration camp. (Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority., The Holocaust 2011) Prisoners are awoken in a constant hurry, the first thing they need to do is look for their shoes hoping that they were not stolen during the night, because you will be severely beaten or even killed if you cannot work. Their day starts off with constant fear of their own or others lives. Breakfast mostly consists of a barren piece of bread and watered down tasteless coffee that comes with an opportunity for the Kapo to harass you, beat you or even kill you if you drop food or try to take extra.
Reicher and Haslam (BBC prison study) Reicher and Haslam carried out this experimental case study to examine the consequences of randomly dividing men into groups of prisoners and guards within a specially constructed institution. The aim of the study was to create an institution to investigate the behaviour of groups that were unequal in terms of power, status, and resources. The 15 participants were all male, and met the criteria of being normal, decent and well-adjusted individuals. They were recruited through advertisements in the national press and through leaflets. They were randomly divided into two groups of 5 guards and 10 prisoners with the 10th prisoner arriving on day 5.
Bob Henry Mrs. Patterson English 1123 p25 October 31, 2012 “Revisiting the Stanford Prison Experiment: a Lesson in the Power of Situation,” is about a prison experiment designed to prove how good people can do bad things when face with a certain situation. In the experiment Philip G. Zimbardo brings 24 physically and mentally healthy college students with no criminal history to participate in his experiment. These participants were assigned to either play a prisoner or a guard and were paid 15 dollars a day just to be in the experiment for 2 weeks. Before the two weeks were even over Zimbardo had to call the experiment to an end, due to extreme street and zombielike attitude and posture in the prisoners. To some the experiment seemed like a complete failure but in reality Zimbardo proved his point within six days of his experiment.
In the United States, there are million of women and men being convicted of crimes and sent to prison. The prison system is thought to be a place for rehabilitation, for convicted felons to change their life from being a menace to society to begin a positive contributor. However, for many years prisons have not been able to meet their goal due to unlawful treatment of prisoners and corrupt authoritative figures in the prison system. Many prisoner do not get the protection the law provides. In the Rita Hayworth and Shaw shank Redemption written by Stephen King, the prison system and it’s corruption is presented in support of these accusations.
The demographic group most affected by the war on drugs and the incarceration boom are the juveniles. Youth who turn to drugs and alcohol abuse are faced with harsh reality at YSI Facilities, another branch of the private prison industry. Rather than being charged with fines appropriate to their offenses and being sent to rehabilitation or other forms of drug treatment, non-violent offenders are locked away with long, harsh sentences. This profit-driven war on drugs and other substance abuse ruins the lives of the inmates, turning them into harder criminals by exposing them to such environments. According to a project run by The Huffington Post, 40% of juvenile offenders sent to private prisons on account of drug related crimes are arrested and convicted of harsher crimes in less than a year from their release (Kirkham).
Even witnesses will arrive and usually there is no interaction between the two, they are detained in a limited room neighboring to the execution chamber and are directed to remain silent. While undergoing preparation, the prisoner is allowed to shower and in some states, they allow male inmates to have a fresh pair of pants and shirt, and for the females, a dress. While other states call for inmates to remove any outer clothing. Once the inmate is fully clad, he or she waits in the death-watch cell with a spiritual advisor until the warden gives the warning sign to bring the prisoner to the execution chamber. The prisoner is brought to the chamber just a few minutes before the planned execution.
Each questionnaire took about 15 to 20 minutes. All the data that were collected from them were entered in SPSS as a whole class. Data analysis: The result were verified by the mean, st. deviation, t(df), and the P. To test my hypothesis, the combination of having an attractive victim with an unattractive defendant will lead to a greatest numbers of years in prison sentence; the combination of an unattractive victim with an attractive defendant will lead to a lower or lowest numbers of years in prison sentence, I did manipulation check to test whether or not the participants viewed the attractive victim as for favorable than the unattractive and attractive defendant more favorable than unattractive defendant. I performed 2 sample t-test and two-way ANOVA to examine the effects of victim attractiveness and defendant attractiveness to examine the influence of number of years
To what extent is human nature malleable? Does evil triumph over humanity or does humanity win over evil? The Stanford Prison Experiment, known as one of the most notorious experiments in the study of human psychology, was conducted at Stanford University in 197l. Philip Zimbardo, a psychology professor, and a team of researchers wanted to study the psychological effects of becoming a prisoner or prison guard. Twenty-four undergraduate male students out of over 75 were selected to play randomly assigned roles of prisoners and guards in a mock prison located in the basement of the Stanford psychology building.
Early Correctional Institutions Dating back to the medieval times into the modern era, the typical correctional facilities was the gaol. These were small town institutions mainly used for detention and holding criminals until court (Foster, 2006). Gaols ranged in size, from small rooms to the size of a castle. Inmates were mixed together; men with women, sane with the insane, young boys with young girls in filth, disease, and malnourishment (Foster, 2006). Gaols operated on a fee system, which charges the prisoners a daily fee; this was how the sheriffs who operated the system made their money.
