|"Crime and Punishment" redirects here. For Grounders, see Grounders/Crime and Punishment.|
Among the various human factions on the ground and in space, punishments for various crimes take many forms depending on the severity of the crime and the age of the criminal. Prisoners of war are also confined and/or tortured. When citizens of The Ark break the law, they will be confined or will be floated.
According to Ark law, if someone under the age of 18 is arrested, they are held in Juvenile Lockup until they turn 18. At that point, they get a review before the Council for the crimes they committed. The Council can either acquit them or find them guilty. If found guilty, the punishment was flotation.
After the oxygen shortage on the Ark reached critical levels, all one hundred of these juvenile delinquents were sent to Earth. The goal was to see if Earth was survivable and to give the Ark more time to fix the life support problem. In exchange, the juveniles were pardoned for their crimes.

This is a type of execution where a condemned was placed into an airlock chamber which is then opened, exposing them to the outside elements and forcing the person's body to be sucked into the open space, resulting in death from lack of oxygen and negative pressure. Rarely, an adult prisoner may be granted a stay of execution by The Council, as in the case of Dr. Abigail Griffin during a medical crisis.

The 48 (mentioned)
Survival of the Fittest (mentioned)
Shortly after Camp Jaha was established, a secure room was quickly set up to detain prisoners (specifically Bellamy and Murphy). Over time, this room became known as the "Stockade" as more people were imprisoned. When Carl Emerson was captured, Raven built an airtight prison out of an airlock for him so Jackson could safely remove his outer protection to treat his radiation burns.
Other Forms of Punishment Edit
Once on Earth, the Delinquents quickly discovered they needed rules to survive. As co-leaders of the 100, Clarke Griffin and Bellamy Blake ordered the banishment of John Murphy after the suicide of Charlotte.
Shock LashingEditAfter the rest of the Sky People arrived on earth, they put into effect the Exodus Charter. Under the Exodus Charter, unauthorized use of firearms was to be punishable as a felony with 10 shock lashes. Abigail Griffin was punished after committing said felony (providing guns to the Delinquents).
Torture is used by the various factions to get information out of prisoners of war. It was first used by the Delinquents on Lincoln but proved ineffective. Later, it was again used by the Delinquents when they questioned Delano, leading to false information and the Tondc Massacre. The Sky People also threatened to use torture with both Rivo and Emerson in order to get them to talk.
When Murphy was blamed for murdering Wells, the Delinquents tries to execute him by hanging, but Charlotte reveals herself to be the true killer.
Lincoln was executed by Chancellor Charles Pike when he shot him in the head. This execution was also part of the Exodus Charter. After Ilian burns down the Alpha Station, the angry Sky People wants him executed as Octavia tries to execute him by shooting him in the head, but could not.
Notes and TriviaEdit
- In the novel, a nurse injected the convicted person with a lethal serum before flotation occurred.
- Bellamy Blake was charged in absentia for his attempted assassination of Chancellor Jaha in Pilot in order to get on the dropship with his sister, Octavia. He was later pardoned in Day Trip by Chancellor Jaha in exchange for revealing it was Commander Shumway who had set up the assassination attempt.
