I truly admire people like the eighth juryman. Giving one’s opinion when it’s so different from others is extremely hard. Especially when the crowd we’re in can be this disrespectful and aggresive. The juryman did not let it stop him from having a serious discussion and he was very sensible and collected the whole time, that’s impressive.

Had it been me, I think I woudn’t be afraid to speak my mind (the situation was way too serious to just follow the others), but I’m not sure if I wouldn’t have cracked under pressure. I’d definitely try to be like the eighth juryman, calm and cool-headed, but it’s not always that easy.
