  • Impartial Jury Of His Peers
    660 words
    This is very long, I just didn't wrap the words The Judicial System The justice system in our country today, is one of the best in the world, but it is not without problems. The 12-person Jury system has good intent but has definite faults and should be rethought and possibly revamped.

  • Juror 10's Prejudice And Impatience
    540 words
    Juror 10 There are two main characteristics of the 10th juror that influence his verdict. The first is that juror 10 is prejudiced against the defendant (most likely he is racist, but we can not be 100% sure). The second is that he is uncaring and impatient. The first time we get a glimpse of juror 10's prejudice is on page 7 when he says "It's the element. I'm telling you they let those kids run wild up there. Well, maybe it serves them right". He believes that anyone coming from a poor neighbo...

  • Narrow Minds Of The Other Eleven Jurors
    544 words
    May 20, 1999 Twelve Angry Men In the film Twelve Angry Men, I believe justice was served. Without juror number eight, however, the outcome most assuredly would have been different. The subtle force and confidence that he displayed allowed the narrow minds of the other eleven jurors to be broadened. From the beginning of the film, juror number eight displayed his interest in the case, not his personal engagements. His opening part by the window foreshadowed his deep concern for the defendant, an ...

  • Guilty And The Juror
    751 words
    The jury in a trial is selected to examine certain facts and determine truth based only upon the evidence presented to them in court. It is assumed that the jurors will judge fairly and without any personal bias. In spite of this assumption people will be people and in some cases, logic and emotion will collide. An excellent example that shows precisely what I'm talking about is in the movie Twelve Angry Men. Twelve men who initially are strangers to each other have the fate of a young boy resti...
  • Juror 3 And His Son
    753 words
    In all criminal cases presented in the courts of the United States, a defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt. The law requires the jury to release the defendant unless it is fully convinced of the defendant's guilt. Many times it may be difficult for a jury to come to such a significant conclusion. This is clearly evident in the movie 12 Angry Men. At first, each juror is convinced of his verdict except one. Yet of those who are convinced that the boy on trial...
