Soon the boys started leaving the ring one after another with the graduate soon finding out what was happening. The other fighters had arranged that the last two people left would fight for the prize not blindfolded. The bell rang and the blindfolds got removed for the graduate to see he was facing the largest of the boys. The two started trading blows till finally the graduate asked to take a fall and he can have the prize money. The boy refused and even refused the offers that the graduate had offered.
This allowed his company to continue the assault where he again, facing all odds charged 2 strong holds against a dozen men and eventually, killed them all as well. Eventually though he was wounded badly from a Japanese attack consisting of 3000-5000 men and had to be dragged 50 yards away. After many attempts by his fellow soldiers to assist him he denied their help and said he would rather die than risk the lives of more men. Under his orders he was placed against a small tree and given a 1911 pistol with only 8 bullets left in its magazine. Denying more offers for help, he was last seen sitting by a tree,

Guilty or not guilty, all citizens deserve a thorough trial to defend their rights. Formulating coherent stories from events and circumstances almost cost a young boy his life. In Twelve Angry Men, 1957, a single juror did his duty to save the life of an 18 year old boy by allowing his mind to rationalize the cohesive information presented by the court and its witnesses. The juror’s name was Mr. Davis, he was initially the only one of 12 jurors to vote not guilty in reason that the young boy, sentenced with first degree murder, may be innocent. I am arguing that system 1 negatively affects the jurors opinion on the case and makes it difficult for Mr. Davis to convince the other jurors of reasonable doubt.
The men went back and forth for hours fighting about whether or not the boy was guilt of killing his father Slowly one by one the jurors changed their mind from guilty to not guilty. All but juror three changed their mind, he was the last one standing so the vote was 11-1. At this point

Darry is hard on Ponyboy because he doesn’t want him to become a high school dropout like Soda. “Darry had cooked dinner; Baked chicken, potatoes, and corn. Two chickens because all three of us eat like horses” (Hinton, 131). Generally Speaking, Darry doesn’t just work too, Sodapop actually dropped out of high school to work with Darry to support all three of them. Soda and Darry work to make sure Ponyboy has a meal on the table for him, a nice bed, and a clothes.
I pull my sandwich out of my Spiderman lunch box and look around at the circle of boys and girl around me. Taking a moment to let their loud, cheerful chattering wash over me, I think about the old me I’d left in Chicago. How surprised she’d be if she saw me now, hanging out with so many new friends, becoming an actor and loving every minute of it. She’d never have had the courage to start a new activity with a group of strangers; yet, here she is, only months later, doing just that. Although Chicago is one of the most violent cities in America, growing up there was the safest I’ve ever felt -- I was completely sheltered emotionally.
When they took their first vote eleven of them voted guilty and Juror eight was the only person that voted not guilty when asked why he said, “ There were eleven votes for guilty. It’s not so easy for me to raise my hand and send a boy off to die without talking about in first” (Twelve Angry Men). Juror eight had to remain brave to be working against the other eleven jurors. Throughout the movie, Juror eight is the only juror that constantly has to prove something, he did his job very well, but the lighter yellow on the inside of the shape shows that juror eight came on more fearless than he was. Because juror eight had a single opinion throughout the trial, a rounded rectangle best represents his character.
I was wearing my old, beat up, worn down Padres hat. We were almost at the stadium and my dad said “If you go to get food, be safe.” I took it like any other advice my dad gave me and let it slip out of my brain like goo. I later felt angry that I didn’t listen because for what happened, I needed it. I was in the stadium getting my favorite, a ballpark hotdog, when a few older kids started approaching me quickly. A taller kid with Brown, Slicked back hair had asked me “Hey kid, where did you get that hat?” I immediately answered back “why does it matter to you?” And I’ll admit it had a bit of tone to it but not enough for him to do
He was rounding home plate, the small crowd was going wild. The Lombardi 's Pizza little league team had just won their first game; my mother was ecstatic, my father was underwhelmed per usual. I wasn’t aware of either of those facts though, because I had been sitting behind the dugout reading to all of my friend’s little siblings “Boo to You, Winnie the Pooh”. Most 9 year old boys ignored the bored younger siblings that were forced to be present at the team’s games - but I wanted them to be happy, and in turn I knew I would be happy. I’ve always loved people, my earliest memory is from when I was 5 years old and noticed a woman with twins.
