The Twelve Anger Men in my opinion is an extraordinary movie that depicts a diverse group of twelve men who are charged with jury duty. The twelve men differed in age, race, socio-economic status, and life experiences. The movie begins at the close of a murder trial conducted in a New York City courtroom, as a judge specifically gives the jury men instructions as they prepare to deliberate on the murder trial of a Puerto Rican youth accused of killing his father. Before the men deliberated the judge overly reminded them that a guilty verdict that means an automatic death sentence for the defendant, must be obtained without any reasonable doubt. Subsequently, the movie continues as the group of anger jury-men come face to face with their differences

Have you ever been in a situation where you and a group of individuals are trying to make a difficult decision? A decision that could alter another person 's life. Well for the jurors in “Twelve Angry Men” ,by Reginald Rose, they had to do exactly that. All twelve members of the jury had to decide whether a young man would be guilty of manslaughter.

What if one day, twenty years from now you were chosen to discuss the fate of an eighteen year old boy. What would you do? Would you take your job and do it responsibly, or would you do it like some of the Jurors in 12 Angry Men and blow it off so you can finish early and leave. Even though there was a lot of controversy in that jury room, I noticed that Jurors 3,7, and 9 used their personalities, beliefs, and views of their responsibilities to bring the boy on trial to justice. This very excitable juror is the last to change his vote, and while his stubbornness could be seen as being based more on emotions than facts, he starts off with his little notebook with facts of the case and tries to insist that he has no personal feelings on the matter.
In his short story, “The Blue Hotel,” Stephen Crane illustrates the conspiracy of silence. A paranoid Swede, residing in Scully’s blue hotel, spends most of his time expressing his worry that someone will kill him, basing his judgment off of the stories he has heard about the “Wild” West. His mental miseries soon become a self-fulfilling prophecy. A card game with Scully’s son turns sour and sparks a fight, where the cowboy encourages the son to “‘kill [the Swede]! Kill him!” Eventually victorious, the Swede leaves the hotel and enters a bar, where a gambler murders him.

Twelve Angry Men Reginald Rose’s film, Twelve Angry Men, revolves around the decision of twelve white male jurors to confine a young Hispanic man behind a prison cell. Initially juror eight stood alone as he put forward a notion that human memory is fallible, and could not be relied on as evidence. Through the jurors, Rose captures the essence of what`s wrong with the American justice system. Rose pursues the concept of prejudice, status, racial discrimination, arrogance, justice and the need for it to be served in the justice system. During the course of the film prejudice was instrumental in acting as the defining factor to prove whether the boy was guilty or not.
Twelve Angry Men is a book about a kid who is on trial for murder of his father. A lot of evidence is brought forward, but most of the evidence is either circumstantial or does not add up with the witness testimony; therefore, the boy is innocent of all crimes charged against him. In the book, the two witnesses are the old man living downstairs and the woman living in the apartment on the other side of the el track. The old says that he heard the boy tell his father he is going to kill him, and then he heard the body hit the floor a second later. The woman; however, said that she saw the murder happen through the passing el train.
Based on the show, women use their innocence to achieve what they want.

An example of Cesar being violent is when Bennett visits his home to pick up a crib.
