    At the beginning of the jury deliberation every single man but one believed that this particular case would result in a unanimous guilty verdict. When the men went around the table to announce their verdicts of guilty or not guilty every man raised their hand in a guilty verdict besides one. Juror eight was the only man who walked into that deliberation room with doubts about whether or not the boy did in fact murder his father. Every man that was apart of the jury had their own reasons as to why they believed with every ounce of their being that the verdict was nothing other than guilty. Along with those men and their particular beliefs as to why the boy was guilty also came a window into the men’s lives. As many do in the world, these men…

    When an individual is a part of a jury, one of the rules is they do not speak about the case outside of court. Though it wasn’t shown specifically in this film, this is a norm of a typical jury. Another norm was smoking. During the meeting, many of the jurors lit up a cigarette while deciding what to do regarding the verdict. It was very normal in that day and age to smoke in doors; it was legal. Many of them would get up and smoke while looking out the window. There was a lot of personal bias…

    The way he saw it, there were all there for one common reason and that was to examine the facts and come to a conclusive verdict on the faith of the boy. There was no room for the bias remarks or emotional outbreak that he observed from the other juror members he states: “If we are going to discuss this case let’s discuss the facts.” Even though he does have his own preconceived notions about individuals from the slums he manages to contain those thoughts maintaining his logical position and…

    The ruling allowed Hennis a second chance to prove his case in a retrial. Escaping death row, Hennis then re-enlisted in the Army, eventually retiring in 2004 as a Master Sergeant. In 2006, DNA from Kathryn Eastburn’s rape kit was consistent with Hennis’ DNA. The jury rendered a guilty verdict and sentenced Hennis to death. One reason I think Timothy Hennis is not guilty is, a head hair was found in the Eastburns’ bed that is not Hennis’. If there was an unidentified hair, then that…

    This movie depict a court case involving an 18 year alleged murder who was found guilty by all except one juror after the information of the case was told. Furthermore, the remaining juror argued his point until he was able to convince everyone to the young man’s innocence.

    I visited the Getty museum in Los Angeles. My favorite piece at the Getty is actually a pair of oil paintings by Abraham Solomon (1857). Both Waiting for the Verdict and Not guilty capture the emotions before and after the announcement of a Victorian man’s verdict. In the first piece, Waiting for the Verdict, Solomon illustrates an array of emotions that reflect the moment. In the lower left of the painting, a remorseful man sits with his head in his hands while his body leans forward,…
