Man vs Man Cole is beating up Peter and smashing his head into the pavement. He is doing this just because he tattled on him when Cole did something bad.
Stop, Please Stop! You're hurting me!
We Might be able to send Cole to and island for an entire year as punishment, rather than jail
Man vs. Society In Circle Justice, Everyone is on Peter's side and no one has Cole's side. People think that he should go to jail just because he beat up peter. Really badly. Instead they punish him by abandoning him at an island for one year.
Man vs. Nature When Cole is trying to escape the island, by swimming away, the tides are stopping him. They are pulling him in so every stroke is fruitless.
