Ideals related to this story:

Liberty and opportunity are linked to this story

Liberty because it means the freedom to act or think without being limited by unnecessary  force. When Omar goes to jail he will be limited to what he can do because he will be in a confined space and there are guards that will always be very observant. This limits his freedoms. Also, opportunity because it means the promise that people should have the chance to attain their hopes and dreams. When he gets released from jail and wants to get a job or have a traditional lifestyle it will be problematic because no one will want to hire someone or socialize with a person with a cheap record. This prevents him from clutching his hopes and dreams.
