Zero due process that we have seen, on the very limited time the episode still had left.
Oh, please, she didn’t get shit. She was given the choice to either reform on the spot, or spend the rest of her natural days in the worst prison in the nation. Or rather, at least WE THINK she was going to spend the rest of her natural life there. We don’t know. She doesn’t know. Because she didn’t get any due process.
And Tirek survived there just like that for over a thousand years. from that and Cozy’s example, we can infer that Tartarus just keeps its prisoners in some sort of stasis, probably similar to how Luna managed to survive in the moon for a millenium.
Uhh, we certainly haven’t seen any stasis that occurs in Tartarus. Moreover…
The cage on the right is the one Cozy was poised to spend the rest of her life inside. Do you by any chance see a cot in there to sleep on? A blanket? An fucking newspaper or something to do her business on? Food? Water? Anything?
Yeah, I didn’t think so. She was tucked away out of sight, out of mind in a tiny cage WITH. FUCKING. NOTHING.
A rabid dog doesn’t deserve that level of abandonment, let alone a pony with FUCKING RIGHTS. Err…they do have rights, don’t they…?
Given the above, i’d say it was rather reasonable — the alternatives were either the chopping block, straight-up brainwashing (remember the ‘reforming spell’ from Keep Calm and Flutter On?) or some other prison she would escape from in due time.
Nope, it wasn’t reasonable in the slightest. How about a freaking mental health facility? How about somewhere which would have actually been able to address her issues head-on? Somewhere that wouldn’t have made her feel abandoned? Was there really no freaking option like that available anywhere in Equestria?
Also, brainwashing would have been way more humane than being left behind in Tartarus forever.
