The treatment of prisoners between 1930 and 1932 was harsh, violent, and inhumane. Food was scarce and often rancid as, "food vendors often dumped their spoiled goods on the prison" (Blumenthal 39). Additionally treatement in the prison was harsh and violent. Clyde's sister recollects once when she visited him and "both her brother's eyes were black and blue" as he had been beaten on multiple occasions for not keeping up and breaking rules (Blumenthal 40). The work the prisoners were expected to do was oftentimes extreme and "dozens of Eastham prisoners, suffering from exhaustion.... cut their own Achilles tendons to get a break from the fields" (Blumenthal 44). After working with another prisoner to cut off two toes, Clyde's sentence was shortened, however the harsh conditions in prison left a mark on Clyde and he remained resentful for the rest of his life.

Describe how Hoover's administration handled the Great Depression below.

Bonnie suggested that they head to New Mexico where Bonnie's Aunt Nellie lives and once they arrived she noticed that they had an unusual amount of cash with them and were driving a new fancy Ford V8 Coupe that no country person can afford. So she calls the Deputy sheriff Joe Johns, and once he comes by everyone scrambles to leave the house. They then kidnapped Johns and took him on the ride to escape the police but then let him go before entering San Antonio.

Once Bonnies aunt called the police this left Clyde and Raymond struggling because all they have been doing is running away from the police and they finally thought they could have had a break. They are struggling in the house to ge their things toghter and find a gun to kill Johns but they never actully kill him but kidnap him. Now many more police are trying to find them leaving Bonnie, Clyde and Raymond still on the run and desprate for a brerak and to be able to find new supplies. “Clyde, Bonnie, and Raymond continued on their endless day. Before letting John's go, Clyde had searched for a fresh car to steal but wasn't able to find what he wanted and San Antonio” (Blumenthal 74). With the rush to escape police they have no supplies and have been driving the whole day and will continue to until they find a hideout. Desprate to stop they must keep going.
