But I am getting off the topic at hand....what was I saying again...Oh!!! Now I remember. I was about to tell you something, that is of great importance. I first must clear up one thing, before I tell you my story. I am only a seventeen year old, and I have a C- in history class.

My thought about this are, that this is not right, seeing that they had prisons in the days before the war. But the Overseer says “We don 't have time to give murders, thieves and assaulters Trials. If you have enough proof to convict, you proof you have enough proof for a sentence." (Although for Guards she makes an exception, she locks them up and throws away the key for years, if they give away confidential information.)
