    of a barbaric tradition, one that sacrifices a member of the community once a year by stoning them to a slow death.

There were crude papier-mâché heads made of soap, paper, and remnants of haircuts from the barber shop hidden on top of the cellblock. Raincoats and rubber cement were stowed away in a dark corner covered in spider webs. Stolen raincoats were stockpiled with thread to build a makeshift raft.
