Next, read the report about the Abu Gharaib [PDF File size 6MB] prison case.
After you have read and viewed the prison material, you are ready to write your compare and contrast essay. You have two different readings that take place in a prison. One is a real-world scenario while the other is an experiment where the reaction of subjects change because of the prison experiment. You will need to address both similarities and differences based on some guiding questions.
You will then compare and contrast the ethical issues surrounding the two examples of unethical environments.
Write a 2-3-page essay in APA Format. In your essay, address the following questions:
