Like Atticus( Scouts father) had once said “the court is as equal as its jury”. Bias can cause many uproars in the court, but a lack of evidence can cause the case to become confusing. Generally evidence is what sets the difference between a wide open case and a closed off one. For example, in the story the defendant Tom was held in prison for one year, while being blocked off
B. Whether from evidence or a personal hunch, some interrogators interview suspects as if they are guilty, which causes an incorrect interrogation that leads to extensive stress and pressure. C.

Piette had been presented critical evidence in the case that clearly declared his client to be guilty, however, instead of debating he sat quietly and observed. Every time the judge would question the defense comments on the presented evidence, Piette would simply say that his client took no side. Despite what Lieutenant Piette was thinking, he knew that it would be extremely dangerous to the case if he began to debate. Piette’s strategy cause yet again more controversy in the legal field. An Air Force major that was in the court believed that Piette’s strategy was immodest.
As I write this blog, I have so many mixed emotions, but mostly it 's sadness and betrayal. The constant subject line of Brooks ' cancer, his choice of treatment, and if he was 'faking ' it or not has gotten out of control.

In “To Kill A Mockingbird” when judge Taylor finds out the verdict, he seems confused, “Judge Taylor was something.
Groups B and E went at each other in their second debate about whether or not Euphiletus was a guilty man or not for killing Eratosthenes, the man who was sleeping with his wife. Group B’s job was to defend Euphiletus, while Group E on the other hand found him guilty in their arguments. Both logos and pathos were used heavily by both sides of the debate; however, when ethos was used, it was very effective. Group B, the first to debate, started out with Elatos (Elicia). Elatos was a lower middle class man who did not have much ethos.
He said that it is impossible for him to declare Pi innocent. The more he examines this case and think about it, the more deeply he become involved and making his mind entangled. He found that every reason to declare him innocent was balanced by a reason to prove him guilty. He withdraws from the case making no decision.
The witness impacts the jury decision on many cases because the way they are. In the Trayvon Martin case Rachel Jeantel, the witness seemed like an illiterate hood person.
