12 Angry Men was an act to show how irresponsible people were back in the days. It showed the immaturity of the judges. The fact that they didn’t care about what happened with the client, made them seem like that wasn’t the right job for them. There was few judges who would follow their critique like juror 8 his job was to analyze and go deeper into the case and that’s what facinated me the most. The juror had arguments through out the act.
He has never hurt anyone, and everyone is trying to blame him so they get a short in their sentence. Multiple “witnesses” or people who overheard about the robbery and murder are convicted or unreliable they all wanted someone to blame and someone to shorten their time in jail. My last reason is his attitude towards jail and how he is scared. “I still can’t go to the bathroom in front of everyone.” he writes.
Like in “Twelve Angry Men” jurors did not talk their vote serious and only voted for the majority. “Oh. well… I think he’s guilty. I thought is was obvious. I mean nobody proved otherwise.” this shows juror two hesitate and only choosing with the

It showing that parts of the judicial system are unjust. They put so much fear into the teens that they didn’t know what to do and were just saying anything to be with their family. By making a deal with the teens in exchange for a story I felt that was wrong because they are lying about what happened and they stores have different parts off the back I knew they were going to jail. Later on the right man who committed the crime confessed and the case was vacated against all five teens. They have every right to file for a settlement for what they went through it was unfair and they were granted a settlement for $42 million which they deserved.
The officials have been making irrational decisions because of all the hysteria in the town. When Hale gets fed up with the court officials he challenges its legitimacy. “I denounce these proceedings!” (120) He makes a powerful statement which shows that he does not agree or approve of what is going on within the court because of his strong ethics and morals.
Bob Ewell is by far one of the meanest and most vulgar characters in To Kill a Mockingbird, but what makes him even worse is that he doesn’t act responsible for any of the bad things he’s done. He doesn’t take care of his children, and uses all the money they are given on alcohol. At the trial it is proven that he beat his daughter, Mayella (203). He then tried to put the blame on a black man. He took out his anger about losing the case by attacking Scout and Jem (262), instead of their father.
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.”
In that period of time frame you no 2nd or 1st person pronouns would be lucky to even have any education. They even argued on Jefferson offensce that he avoid contractions isn’t even smart / intelligent enough to even rob a store. “ a hog in an electric chair” (citation needed; Author’s last name and page #) Is what they referred to Jeff when they decided to give him the death penalty. Black men didn’t have any chance against the justice system back in that time because they were too uneducated to have any defensce for themselves. Jefferson couldn’t even make a statement that could even prove his
Those two sentences show that he believes the boy is guilty based on the bad record of the kid. He also believes that once the boy becomes a bad boy, he never becomes a good boy again. Juror Seven is adding his emotion to the discussion. He is not able to see things clearly, and it also shows how ignorant he is. Juror Seven’s ignorance does not only destroy the boy’s
One after another victim-to-victim fell to the unjust and unlawful acts of the justice system of the time without any help from the surrounding society. Justine was the first to fall because of how no one stood up for her in the society that lived all around her therefore she took the fall for everything. Second to feel the heat was Mr. De Lacy who consequently dragged the whole family down the government did not want Mr. De Lacy poking around anymore so they framed him. No one tried to appeal the trial or even tried to find evidence to help his case. Finally Victor, the one who sat there and did not speak up for Justine, felt the cold shoulder from society too when he was accused of murder.
“The only reason you want me back home, is because it looks bad that your wife left you.” “You know that’s not true. I love you. I’m human, I make mistakes. The sooner you come back home, the sooner we can get past this.”
He tried convincing the court that he was guilty by virtue of insanity. He tried proving that only someone insane could commit such terrible acts, but the jury refused to believe him. They said that he was well aware of the evil things he was doing and chose to do it anyway. Once in prison, Dahmer was isolated. He proved that he could finally be put with other inmates, and this is where his life went downhill (more than it already did).
Who will win, what do they win? While in charge of the “lottery”, Mr. Summers doesn’t support its traditions and feels the town should end it like a few surrounding towns have recently done. To him, the black box represents death and bad traditions in the community. His community members think it 's “Bad enough to see young Joe Summers up there joking with everybody.” They fear the young people are the ones changing the traditions and ending this tradition will lead to other breakdowns in society.
“When injustice becomes a law, resistance becomes a duty” told by Thomas Jefferson. Sadly, since the judicial system of America was established there has been a lack of fairness, through which it has become unavoidable. This has resulted in some of the citizens themselves to confront it by fighting back trying to establishing justice. In Twelve Angry Men, Reginald Rose emphasis the theme of “Injustice” through his characterization of eleven out of the twelve jurors, the extensive use of verbal irony to convey their ignorance, and sarcastic attitude the author has towards the play. Reginald Rose utilizes characterization to thoroughly depict each of the twelve jurors.
