* Nathaniel Hawthorne's ''Literature/TheScarletLetter'' opens with Hester Prynne standing on a pillory before the crowd as part of her punishment. (And that was the ''easy'' part. She'd be stared at the same way by the townsfolk and even by visitors the rest of her life, due to the MarkOfShame she had to wear.)

* The case of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mukhtaran_Bibi Mukhtar Mai]]. She was subject to HonorRelatedAbuse after her brother was accused of having an inappropriate relationship. Mukhtar was gang-raped, then [[ShamefulStrip paraded naked through town]] in order to shame her family. Although she was encouraged to commit suicide to save face, she refused, and even brought her rapists to trial.

* In the ''ComicBook/XWingSeries'' comics, the self-appointed new Emperor, Sate Pestage, fled the Empire to save his life. He'd been planning to strike a deal with the Rebel Alliance / New Republic, sparing his life and giving him about thirty planets in exchange for leaving the Imperial capital undefended, but he was found out and captured. He was held in a prison, and the Rebels broke him out but couldn't flee offplanet with him yet, so they set up camp. While he was there, an ex-Imperial pilot who had [[DefectorFromDecadence defected]] came to [[http://img136.imageshack.us/img136/4917/swrsmr311.jpg visit him]].

* ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'' once fought a group of extradimensional beasts called Warwolves who worked for the {{X-Men}}'s old enemy Mojo; after they were apprehended, the team didn't see the point of putting them through any actual legal system, seeing as, despite their intelligence, they were far too dangerous. So they were incarcerated in a special cage at the London Zoo. (And were a popular attraction for a while.) They escaped a few times, and at present, are at large and in hiding.

* Also in ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'', when [[ProfessionalKiller Arcade]] kidnapped Captain Britain's girlfriend Courtney Ross, he combined this with GoGoEnslavement (a PlayboyBunny outfit) and a rather unique DeathTrap: She was dumped onto a stage in front of a ToughRoom full of android hecklers who demanded to be entertained; failing to win them over would result in them killing her. (Amazingly, Courtney survived by discovering a talent for impromptu stand-up comedy, much to Arcade's surprise.)
