Transcript of Lord of the Flies Trial

Lord of the Flies trial Is Jack resposible for TWO death's? Opening Statement Ralph Little kid Piggy Simon Roger Jack BY Jack G., Jenna M., Poeu B., and Jesse H. On the island two deaths occurred, Jack has been accused of being responsible for these two deaths and we believe this to be true. Jack was Jealous of Ralph being the leader and craved attention and had a thirst for power. The island had plenty of resources available for the boys to survive; the island wasn’t cursed by some kind of animal they refer to as the “beast.” But it was Jack who had brought evil onto the island with his own desire for power, changing their civilized government into a hostile environment. This was interpreted as a game with ignored rules by jack’s violent, cruel and inhumane savages. If Jack hadn’t wanted to be leader so much he wouldn’t have unbalanced Ralph’s government. They would have been rescued sooner, Simon and Piggy would not have died and they would have never set the whole island on fire. Is it possible that Jack was innocent? Jack has committed 1st degree murder (direct homicide), 2nd degree murder (indirect homicide), assault, and theft. We believe these should result in 15 years in juvenile detention center, and 5 years on parole. If Jack commits any more crimes, of any sort, he with be in jail for the rest of his life.

Now that we have heard the witness point of view, our conclusion has only strengthened since the beginning of the trial. For Simon’s death, Jack started the circle and the lightning would’ve made Simon visible to the rest of the group. He was trying to warn the boys of the beast he could have been heard out and they killed him. Jack was aware of the boulder trap and he told them that Ralph and piggy would come to get his specs back. When the boulder was released piggy couldn’t get out of the way because he could not see and was traumatized by lack of sight. A point that was missed in the trial was jack burned the forest down while chasing after Ralph. The shelters were burned which could make this a case of arson. Just as a reminder, we found jack to have committed 1st degree murder, 2nd degree murder, attempted murder, assault, aggravated assault, arson, conspiracy to murder, theft and conspiracy to theft. Jack had hit piggy and attacked Ralph. We believe these should result in 25 years in juvenile detention center, and 5 years on parole. If Jack commits any more crimes, he with be in jail for the rest of his life. Closing Statement
