12 Angry Men: Juror #8
Transcript of 12 Angry Men: Juror #8
"I feel sorry for you... what it must feel like to want to pull the switch."(To Juror 3)
"Ever since you walked into this room, you've been acting like a self-appointed public avenger! You want to see this boy die because you personally want it, not because of the facts! You're a sadist!"(To Juror 3)
"Well I think that testimony that can put a boy into the electric chair SHOULD be that accurate."
"I'm not trying to change your mind. It's just that... we're talking about somebody's life here. We can't decide it in five minutes. Supposing we're wrong? " Summary After hearing the case I knew that I could not easily put the fate of a 16 year old boy to an alectric chair as if I knew what really went on. I had to look further into it. Doing so I found that the witnesses did not even know thereselves what it was that they witnessed in the first place. The old man with heart problems could not have made it to his door as fast as he did. The door was even locked. Also, the woman who claimed to have seen the killing wore glasses and could not have put them on as fast as she did. I took into account these obvious mistakes and did my best to convince the other jury memebers that they needed to use their logic to solve this case and not their own personal feelings. In the end of it all I was able to turn their decisions over and saved the life of an innocent young boy. Analysis Juror 8 was very important in this play. He was the reason why their was 12 angry men in the first place. Using his strong judgement and his intelligence he overlooked the case and was the only one to say that the defendant was not guilty. This made everyone mad mostly because some didn't like the defendant, some found Davis' ideas crazy, and some just wanted to leave badly and thought the case was a waste of time. Because Davis tought everyone else logical answers to things and patience he saved the life of a teenage boy. Character Impact Without juror 8 there wouldn't be any 12 Angry Men. There would be no conflict and the play would be short and tragic: The young boy would be killed in the hands of a jury who used personal feelings towards the boy to prosecute him without using their minds. An innocent boy would have died and everyone would have not cared because there was never another juror such as Davis to convince them that what they believed was the answer to the case just made no sense. In God We Trust The motto "In god we trust" is heard in the Star Spangled Banner. That song was writtine by Francis Scott Key in 1814 and was later made the national anthem. The song was shortened to "In god we trust" and put on coins in 1864. This motto was put on the U.S coins large because during the civil war it was a religious phrase to many people.
