Some people believe serving on a jury should be a requirement for every citizen. However they are wrong because some people will not take it serious as it need to be. Citizens should not be required to serve on jury because bias jurors. For example, in the play “Twelve Angry Men” during the deliberation of the verdict some of the jurors showed bias toward the young man on trial because of where he was from. “We 're not here to go into the reasons why slums are
The juror had arguments through out the act. Because of the fact of his views in the client. If it was true that the teenager murder his father, it was the jurors job to prove it.

There is always more to a human being than their looks or social status. Looks can be deceiving as a person with great credibility may not be at all what society expects them to be. In The Crucible by Arthur Miller, Abigail, John Proctor, and Judge Danforth prove to readers that even people with great credibility can be sinful and manipulative. They prove this when John Proctor has an affair, Abigail sends innocent people to jail, and Judge Danforth continues to send innocent people to hang knowing he is wrong in doing so. First, John Proctor.
Though much of Elizabeth’s testimony had felt “almost rehearsed,” jury foreman Mark Landrum told me, her disgust for Michael in that moment had been palpable. “From that moment on, I didn’t like Michael Morton,” Landrum said. “I’m assuming the entire jury felt that way too. Whether he was a murderer or not was still to be determined, but I knew that I did not like him.” Building on the idea that Michael hated his wife, Anderson also cast him as sexually deviant. Over the protests of the defense, Judge Lott allowed the district attorney to show jurors the first two minutes of Handful of Diamonds, the adult video that Michael had rented, under the pretext that it established his state of mind before the murder.
In 12 Angry Men, the author creates a very long and challenging process for the jurors to decide on an unanimous verdict. At the beginning of the play, Juror Eight is the only one that votes for not guilty. Because he does not know what he thinks, he asks that they review all the facts and testimonies. When Juror Eight
12 Angry Men Jury Attitude Development The Juror's attitudes in “Twelve Angry Men” changes from Act one to Act three by caring more about the outcome of the case and less about going home. In the beginning, all of the jurors, save but one, Juror eight, voted guilty without ever caring about if the evidence presented was factual. Peer pressure seemed to be a large portion of this, seeing that a few of the jurors raised their hands hesitantly when asked to publicly vote for guilty. Juror seven voiced how he felt about this case, saying that the decision “better be [made] fast,” simply because he “got tickets to the Seven Year Itch.” Other jurors would make small remarks about simply wanting to leave and were focusing on their discomfort instead
He did many things that got him into trouble but it was him to be blame for all his reckless behavior. He wanted discipline and guidance from his parents but never got it and that they both raised themselves. The parents and the son were both to be blamed. The article is about a man talking what happen during his childhood. He had alcoholic parents which made him and his older sister
This shows how he is already feeling disappointed that he will lose. After Steve’s father visits him in prison, Steve writes this in his notebook about what his dad’s reaction was, “It’s like the man looking down to see his son and seeing a monster instead”(Myers 116). After seeing his dad act this way as Steve describes it, we can see that he feels like he has disappointed and let down his own father. In both examples, we can see that during the trial, Steve has felt disappointed in his chances and
In the story, 12 angry men, some of these men immediately assumed that the kid was guilty of murder. Some of them also had their decisions of the kid being not guilty. These men made their decisions without evidence so they didn’t know what to make up of it besides what the case is about with a kid accused
However, accountability for police use of lethal force is severely lacking in the United States because the investigation is conducted by their own agency, who more often than not try to cover up what the individual has done even though it may have been wrong. The case in then handed over to the local prosecutor for review, who, depending on the jurisdiction, either convenes a grand jury or decides directly whether to file charges against the officer, which happens in very few of the cases. Internal Affairs never confesses to the claim of police abuse. They hide witnesses and try to cover all their tracks. However, so that the public isn 't further angered they do light things such as loss of vacation days or a mere suspensions until the “investigation is completed.” Most prosecutors only like to take cases that result in homicide by an officer is they know they can win.
Results from the trial lead many to believe justice wasn’t served. Defensive attorney John Adams used tactics to create confusion in the minds of the jurors so they could not be certain what actually took place. This proved to be very effective. Adam noted the crowd had been harassing the soldiers and also attacked them. There was no reliable evidence to back this up and it was generally believed, even if Preston was found guilty, he would be pardoned anyway.
Lastly, the conflicts in the story demonstrate the struggles and trials Dooley goes through, in an attempt to create a new beginning. The first conflict is faced by Dooley at the very starting of the novel, when he gets questioned for the death of Mark Everley. For example, the author narrates, “The homicide cop asked Dooley if he knew the dead kid. Dooley hesitated again. He didn’t like the way the homicide kept his eyes on him and never one looked away, like he thought that if he did, he might miss the one thing that would let him nail Dooley” (McClintock 11).
Furthermore he rejects the confess offer. Thanks to John’s stubbornness the court hangs him. Another character also with important reputation is judge Danforth. He does not want to seem untrustworthy. First he accuses many people from the witchcraft, and when some people start to doubt about it, he arrest them.
Due to lack of evidence, it is often hard to charge an officer for disorderly conduct, which causes the public outrage and turns them against the justice system. If officers wore body cameras, there would be more evidence to support any claims made between both the officers and the public who ask for answers. A great example of this occurred earlier this year with the death of Mike Brown, who was an unarmed teenager killed by Darren Wilson. Wilson was indicted because of the lack of evidence that Brown was actually a threat. It was basically the public against an officer.
