While watching this movie I was astounded that the jury so easily blamed that young boy. Of course, there was evidence, witnesses but (as jury number 8 noticed) it raised so many doubts. Despite one of them, every man in this room was ready to send the accused on death, because the weather was hot and the game was started. Even man, who was born in slums!
To be clear, I couldn’t be right. If I didn’t see what happened I wouldn’t say that I am right. However, if I had doubts I would try to do the same what that man did. I think he did a great job because he was trying to say what he thinks with calm and patience. He never told that he knows, only that he has doubts. I think I would like to act like him, but who knows, maybe I would feel the power of social influence on my own?
