Turns attention to punishments by considering encubamiento and confinement, the decline of judicial torture, and harshness against mixed-races. It shows the overall decline of the death penalty, the fact that it impacted much more metropolitan than colonial subjects and whites that non-whites, while establishing also the significance of other forms of punishment in particular confinement. It confirms too the great significance of clemency.
