The only thing is, Every person who committed a crime had a different reason for doing it. That is why the Court exists, to judge each case differently.

Without the scaffold scenes this book would basically leave you clueless to what was really going on because the scaffold scenes really tell you what is going on and why. The first scaffold scene is basically an introduction to the whole book. You learn who all the main charter...

Thus, as per my opinion, the assertion of statement must be determined on a case-by-case basis. For instance, the people who claim that they have a ...
