One man’s grieving is another man’s atrocity. 1844.

Persecution. Just recently, some people here in Honolulu were persecuted for their tattooing, for their knocking out teeth, and for other foolish actions; they were led all about, here and there, by the overseer, while he made a spectacle of their offense before people. Perhaps this is a good thing; the ignorant will be shamed and the rogues will be in fear.

(Nonanona, 7/23/1844, p. 41)
