Kisah Penjara AL CAPONE Part 2

Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. 

Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of convicts.

Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton and Al Capone. 

--------------------------------------------------------

Maksud penitentiary ialah tidak menghukum, sebaliknya mengurung dengan sebab agar banduan dapat reflek kembali apa telah dibuat (jenayah), memikirkannya kembali dan menyesal. Dengan lain perkataan, pusat pemulihan.

Masalahnya, ilmu tentang psikologi ketika itu tidaklah sehebat mana. Tidak menghukum jadi menghukum. Idea bagus tapi perlaksanaan tak begitu.

Prison = penjara
Penitentiary = pusat pemulihan

Tapi bila kita tour tempat ni takde beza nampaknya antara penitentiary dan prison.

But someone has to start somewhere right? Itulah idea Dr. Benjamin Rush pada tahun 1787 yang akhirnya menyebabkan terbinanya penitentiary ini pada tahun 1821. Penitentiary ini menjadi model kepada 300 penjara seluruh dunia.


Branding bukan bermaksud memberi jenama. Tetapi mengecop ke tubuh badan manusia dengan menggunakan besi panas.

Lawatan dimulakan dari Cellblock 1.

Pintu kayu memberi elemen mistik.

Siapakah mereka yang pernah berjiran ini?

Ruang penjara yang usang dimamah zaman.

Masa itu seseorang telahpun merekabentuk penitentiary untuk keselesaan banduan. Implementasi agak sukar sebabnya bentuk pun dah macam rumah biasa as shown in the model above.

Siling di ruang jalan.

Apa yang dilakukan oleh banduan di dalam penitentiary ini? Banyak. Antaranya, menjahit pakaian.

There's light at the end of the tunnel (cellblock)

Re-model kembali bilik tahanan ketika itu.

Mangkuk tandas.

Cahaya dari siling di dalam bilik tahanan.

Berhantu?

Memang dikatakan berhantu. Diakui sendiri oleh warga penitentiary ini (banduan  dan juga pak gad). Mungkin betul mungkin tidak. Yang pasti, hantu juga ada daya penariknya yang tersendiri menyebabkan ramai yang melawat.

Rotunda

The Penitentiary’s Rotunda is the physical and symbolic center the prison. This distinctive architectural feature--designed for surveillance into the radiating cellblocks--was copied in hundreds of prisons during the 19th century, and provides one of the most powerful visitor experiences today. The seven original cellblocks and the South Corridor, can be seen through the eight arched doors around the room.

Model Eastern State Penitentiary yang mempunyai 7 cellblocks. Kenapa ada tujuh cellblocks? Simbol Freemason? Anda bagitahu saya.
