1. The students in the experiment feel confused because the cops showed up at their house to arrest them for a crime they didn’t commit. They feel scared and dehumanized because they were just thrown on the car and searched, also when he was put in the holding cell, they blind folded him so he could think about what he did wrong. 2. There was no training on how to be a guard in this experiment. The guards were just set free to do what they want as long as they were not breaking any laws. They warned the guards what kind of things they could go through and the seriousness of the experiment beforehand; knowing this, I do not think I would have been a guard for this experiment. I could not play it off well and I would honestly be too scared to be a part of it. 3. The “good guards” did not object to anything that the “bad guards” did is because you can’t talk down to your superior. If the “bad guards” were above them in the chain of command, than they have no choice but to go along with what they did. Also, the “good guards” were not being treated badly; the bad treatment was directed to the prisoners. 4. If I was a prisoner during the Stanford experiment, I would not have been able to handle it. If I were in a dress with no under clothes, rubber sandals, and a heavy chain bolted to my ankle is too hard to even comprehend. Although all of the prisoners rebelled and joined forces with each other by destroying their ID numbers jail cells, I would be too afraid I would get in trouble and would just sit back in the corner and ponder why I’m there in the first place. Even though “real” prisons aren’t as bad as this experiment, it’s still the same concept and that is something I would not be able to handle. 5. The experiment was so thought through and conducted that the prisoners actually felt like they were in “real” jail. After being in “prison” for so long, it’s what they grew accustomed to. Even though the prisoners were volunteers, they thought they were being sent to a real prison and seeing what real prison was like. They didn’t try to work outside the prison system because that’s how they believed the prison actually worked. 6. I feel that prisoners may feel that the guards are demeaning and abusive towards them because of their character rather than the situation they are in because the guards are always evil and disrespectful and that’s the only way the prisoners see them, so that’s how they think the guards are at all times. 7. Reality in a prison setting is not having any freedom or any privacy. Reality is sitting in a jail cell with nothing to do except ponder all of your thoughts and continuously regret why you’re sitting there in the first place. Reality in a prison setting is wishing you were home with your family, your friends, or your dog. Illusions never really become “real.” Prisoners probably hope that their illusions will eventually become real, what they are falsely believing, I’m sure is much better than the reality they’re living in. The poem, “Within the illusion of life, Death is the only reality, but is…

Incarcerating a juvenile is like spanking a toddler. It's all show and no substance.

them, and my dad just got pissed. My mom was a lil’ upset and worried about what would happen. Most of the people reading this don’t know that I have a brother, but he’s actually in prison due to a rough childhood. He got started with drugs pretty early. I told my mom there was a chance I could end up going to prison for it and she was just completely silent in awe.

INCARCERATION AND PRISON SOCIETY
I. Introduction: The modern prison
• Maximum security prisons prior to the 1950s was a massive wall institution
• In the South the massive wall were less common as prisoners worked outside on large farms
• The 1960s saw a move toward rehabilitation and “correctional institutions”

the history of prison development. Mostly, in the comparison of the Pennsylvania system and the Auburn system, and the impact and involvement of prison labor over time.
In the 1800's, punishment inside the correctional facilities was quick and harsh. Physical discipline was believed to be normal and encouraged in order to maintain good order and discipline inside the institution. Flogging and lashes were the most common punishments for inmates that acted out while serving a prison sentence. Many…
The Field Manual that covers guard is FM 22-6. When performing guard duty, one of the main things you need to know are your general orders which are; I will guard everything within the limits of my post and quit my post only when properly relieved. I will obey my special orders and perform all my duties in a military manner. I will report violations of my special orders, emergencies, and anything not covered in my instructions to the Commander of the Relief. There are two types of orders you can…
and professionally. The receptionist talk to me politely with smiling face and a good body language either I wasn’t there for book a room. The front house environment looks very tidy and the hotel management was keen to kept newspapers and magazines for customer s who waits in the lounge besides the reception.
Overall the front of house area is the only place in a hotel that opens for the public and should have a good ambience to give a fabulous impression for the guests.
state and federal prisons at the end of 2005. The Black race takes up 40 percent of this number while whites are only 35 percent and Hispanic is only at 20 percent. (Harrison & Beck. 2006) This means blacks comprise about 12 percent of the US population which is about two fifths of the prison population. Males are even more dramatic for disparities, especially males in their twenties and thirties. In 2005, 8.1 percent of all black males ages 25 to 29 were doing time in a prison. White males were…

American Prison System and the novel Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption.
A prison is an institution for the confinement of persons convicted of criminal offenses. Nelson Mandela once said “When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw.” The prison system has been a way to keep violent criminals away from society and should also help to reform convicts and enable them to reintegrate into society. It may be true that prisons exist for…
