According to a review by Keith he explains, “we begin with Gilmore’s parole, and get an almost daily look into his struggle to assimilate himself into normal life outside of prison, especially in relations with women and family members concerned about Gilmore’s manipulative tendencies and violent temper, breaks it off with Gilmore, after which he commits the

After a very crazy night, the police officer calls a friend to arrest the fugitive, because he couldn't bring himself to do it himself. The irony in this story happens when they meet up 20 years later and end up on 2 different sides of the bars.

The jury had a murder case that dealt with a nineteen-year-old man that was accused of murdering his father from several people. If the man was found guilty of the crime, then he would be sentenced to death. Each one of the jurors came to their own decision deciding whether or not the defendant was guilty of the crime or not. The rising action in the play is that only Juror #8 found the defendant innocent and all the other jurors found him guilty of the crime. In order for the jury to make a decision, they needed a unanimous vote.
Jurors for Justice? What if the justice system wasn’t as unbiased as you thought?

One way Twelve Angry Men shows an unfair trial is the backgrounds of the jurors.
Do you get along better with a certain parent more than you do with the other. For example, maybe you get along with your mother more than you get along with your father because she is more understanding. In the book Monster by Walter Dean Myers the main character is named Steve Harmon. He is in court because he is being accused of being involved in the murder of a drugstore owner, Mr. Nesbitt. Steve’s parents each visit Steve at different times, and both have different views on whether he is guilty or innocent.
At the end of the book he doesn’t know what his father thinks of hi anymore. And the most important one to me is Steve’s betrayal of his own feelings. He can’t make his mind up on what he thinks of himself and he is constantly second guessing himself and battling with himself. I think that it was a good book. I had never heard of it before

Adnan Syed was young adult in 1999 when he was arrested and accused of the murder of his ex girlfriend named Hae Lee. Adnan has been in jail since he was 17 now his sits in a maximum security prison waiting for his second trial to see what his final outcome will be. I believe after hearing the Serial podcast with all the facts and interviews with all the people who are involved and also close friends to both the victim and the alleged murderer that Adnan is not guilty. What I mean by Adnan not being guilty there isn 't enough evidence to prove he 's guilty but I feel his not completely faithful to his story the whole time.
