This semester I read the play Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose It is about a jury trying to come up with a verdict for a teenage boy who is being accused of killing his father In the play there are 2 very important characters These characters are Juror Number Three and Juror Number Eight Number Three is very against talking about anything He is convinced that the boy is guilty and doesnt care to listen to any other opinions Juror Eight is very opposite of number three Number Eight will always listen to all opinions and wants to look everything over He does not know yet if the boy is guilty or innocent In this play a very important point is made This point is justice isnt justice if it is biased Many times in this play people added their own personal lives into what they felt happened on the night of the murder They often looked at the boys background and decided who he was by their experiences and personal feelings People have a natural instinct to favor one side of a case or another Usually these feelings come from a personal experience or situations Often times these feelings were challenged One incident that a personal situation is effecting the case is done so by Juror Number Ten He is not ashamed of being biased He tells the other jurors Ive lived amongem all my life You cant believe a word they say The part of this sentence that makes it so biased is when he uses the words I amongem and they These words show that he is putting personal situations into his statement also they characterized the boy into a certain group from his background Though the man knows nothing about the defendant personally he has put him into a group of people he didnt like because of the boys looks and previous life Juror Number
