After watching 12 Angry Men, I was very inspired by juror 8 ' argument techniques. His eye contact, body language, tone, the persuasive techniques he used like induction, pathos, ethos and logos should be studied and analyzed in a very detailed, precise way. These factors were strong enough to change 11 angry men 's mind and to vote not guilty, even juror 3 who is the most stubborn. 12 Angry Men 's message toward individuals and the society as a whole is to think once and twice before judging, how to have a successful, convincing argument and most importantly, it encourage everyone to stand up for your opinion. One of the reasons why everyone should speak up is sometimes other people are thinking the same way, but they are not brave enough to express their opinion.
The novel Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose includes conflicts on a jury duty of twelve white men with very different backgrounds and experiences.

Therefore; doubt is the most powerful asset in the play. Doubt slowly creeps itself into the minds of the jurors, slowly growing stronger and stronger as more of them begin to doubt the boy’s innocence.
The “Hero” of Twelve Angry Men All quotes and anything else taken from the story for this essay is from the play Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose.

The flaws of the American justice system exposed by the play Twelve Angry Men, written by Reginald Rose, include Racism, Bias and the different definitions of Justice. Of the 12 Jurors in the play many of them have a bias towards the defendant, a hispanic boy. Rose expresses this to us through their words, language and facial expressions (younger son). Racism is another major theme throughout the plot especially expressed by major verbal conversations but accurate details, such as only white men deciding the fate of a hispanic teenager. Lastly, between the jurors there are different interpretations of justice.
A group of juror comprising of 12 men from diverse backgrounds began their early deliberations with 11 of ‘guilty’ and 1 of ‘not guilty’ verdicts. Juror 8 portrayed himself as a charismatic and high self-confident architect. Initially, Juror 1 who played the foreman positioned himself as self-appointed leader of the team in which has led his authority to be challenged as his leadership style lacked in drive and weak. In the contrary, Juror 8 is seen as the emergent leader considering his openness to probing conversations while remaining calm. Implying this openness to the present, it has become crucial that a good decision relies on knowledge, experience, thorough analysis and most importantly critical thinking.
