Body thrown in fire and ashes remained. Punishment inscribed on the body = overkill, not necessary, probably dead half way through this. The how" questions = not saying whether something is good or bad, but more how did we come to view the prison as a necessary form of punishment, how did something come to be. We assume prison is the way we think of punishment, as if there"s no other way. Problematization how do certain things get talked about as problems or that we take for granted as a problem. Ex. school shootings how do we view it as a problem, how has that changed. De-centering the subject - don"t focus on one person as the cause of change. Media is important to see how things have changed.
