The best explanation as to why some plantation owners punished enslaved persons, was to keep them as helpless as possible.
The slaves in every plantation perpetually outnumbered the numbers of masters. This indicates that the buyers suspected that the laborers could rebel anytime and threaten their lives. To avoid this, the owners usually mistreat their slaves so as to break their rebelling spirit
The treatment of captives in the United States varied by time and place, but was commonly cruel and humiliating, particularly in the estates. Punishment and violation was quite regular. There were contracts to which the master could turn over the mauling. Some of the masters were kind and educated, but not in big plantations. Only some of slaves acquired anything agreeing on decent treatment, and even that could disappear on such a moment as the death of the owner.
There was no situation ever recorded in which a slave, holding escaped to independence, retired intentionally to slaveholding, or even asserted that he was regretful he had escaped because he had been better off as a captive.
