This may result in wrongful convictions or acquittals and as a result, would severely undermine the efficacy of any justice system. People may start to lose trust in the justice system in meting out fair and impartial judgements, resulting in a total disregard of the justice system. In the contexts of crimes carrying the death penalty, jury tampering can have serious ramifications. The irreversible damage done to the accused’s family due to the wrongful convictions cannot be fixed with any sum of money. With Singapore’s strict anti-corruption stance, cases of corrupt judges would hence be rare.
When it comes to hearing or speaking the truth do you believe it can help you or destroy you ? The author , Reginald Rose , he is showing me that when it comes to a trial it 's the truth that matters, however, not everyone will feel the same some care about the truth and some don 't. The people who are not truthful are the ones who don 't care about anything or anyone. Therefore, During the trial, they discuss what had happened from the murder some point out the evidence (Rose 15) juror 8 explains the el tracks and how the women across the street couldn 't have seen the body fall with the passing of the el Tracks. Accordingly, to Juror 6 he tells the others about the women who saw the boy kills his father from her bedroom window, but she
The client can take drastic decision such as pulling the person to court after the memories have been recollected. Another limitation is the assumptions and manipulation of the therapist. The therapist looks up to them as an expert and assumes a lot of situations. Due to their experience, they tend to come to conclusions that this should be reason. For example, the therapist can fail to clarify or even before going in depth at the situation, they came to their own conclusion.
The Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) effect might also affect the verdict of the jury. The American jury system should not be used because of it not being cost-effective, the lack of experience of the jury, which leads to justice not being served, and the CSI effect impacting the
Law & Order, not pertaining to any specific case usually have witnesses, and at times jurors expect the eyewitness to have solid facts as to applying it to the verdict. Sometimes it’s difficult as well to have jurors who know about the case through social media so if they’ve seen similar cases on television or in reality they will quickly use that case to evaluate their verdict. At the same time this causes bias preconception throughout jurors mind during the case. According to two different sources, one believes that forensic technology is not the case of why jurors believe in forensic evidence, and the other believes is it true that jurors believe in forensic technology. According to Judge Donald Shelton, he says that these CSI Effect articles are primarily based off of lawyers opinions, they are not facts.
For their experiment, they tested out the idea that giving eyewitnesses confirming feedback would affect how accurate one is able to evaluate accurate or mistaken feedback based on the witness self-report questions and the evaluator’s testimony judgment questions, it was concluded that confirming feedback increased the perceived credibility of mistaken eyewitness more than increasing the perceived credibility of accurate eyewitnesses. As study by Chan, Thomas, and Bulevich (2009) stated that our memory of an event can be altered when exposed to misinformation. Their research was conducted by adding misinformation when there was a no test and a test involved. However, one thing these studies have in common is how accurate one is able to recall the incident being shown and remember the details. Through their experiment the researchers learned that the participants learned misinformation better when they were tested, than when they were not being
Other jurors based the fact that the accused lived in a slum and that slum residents are delinquents by nature. The results of these informal practices only proved that the accused wasn't guilty because the arguments were not valid enough to incriminate him. Leadership did emerge differently from a small group setting because a designated leader should not let a group member overtake his position. So Juror #8 as a initiator should have never tried to take the position of Juror #1. But it was needed for him to do that so that the group could reach into a correct decision.
In a hollow smug hallway, Harper’s life changed in those two horrific minutes. She used all her force and power to escape, but he had a stronger grip. She yells, “STO…” but doesn’t get the chance to complete the word with her body in shock and pain till she passes out. She tried to comprehend what happened and why he attacked her, till the nurse comes back after getting the whole story to tell her she should keep this attack quiet. Harper was an enlisted member in the military and is one in a million of service members who get sexually assaulted and harassed in the military.
or Law and Order; they expect a certain type of case in court. These shows give false information about how these cases actually unravel. During a trial, jurors expect evidence and witnesses questioned. This contributes to injustice because the jurors are under false bias and may not convict if they do not have that one piece of solid evidence (Bialo-Padin & Peterson, 2012). In many cases there are no other parties involved expect the two in the relationship and therefore there is no witness other than the accounts of the victim and offender (O’Dell,
So our opposition clearly wants to make the situation worse by ignorantly indicting police officers without a grand jury? This proposition means that potential defendants are not present during grand jury proceedings and neither are their lawyers. The prosecutor gives the jurors a "bill" of charges, and then presents evidence, including witnesses, in order to obtain an indictment. These proceedings are secret, but transcripts for the proceeding may be obtained after the fact. Prosecutors like grand juries because they function like a "test" trial and enable prosecutors to see how the evidence will be received by jurors.
