THOUGHTS AND WORD: - “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! “ - “This phrase, how many times have all of us used it? Probably thousands. "I could kill you for that, darling." "Junior, you do that once more and I'm gonna kill you." "Get in there, Rocky, and kill him!" We say it every day. That doesn't mean we're going to kill anyone. “ - “We're not convinced. We want to hear them again. We have as much time as it takes.” - “Nobody has to prove otherwise. The burden of proof is on the prosecution. The defendant doesn't even have to open his mouth. That's in the Constitution. “ - “Look, there was one alleged eye witness to this killing. Someone else claims he heard the killing, saw the boy run out afterwards and there was a lot of circumstantial evidence. But, actually, those two witnesses were the
entire case for the prosecution. Supposing they're wrong?” - “They're only people. People make mistakes. Could they be wrong?” OTHER CHARACTERS THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS : THEY THINK HE IS WASTING TIME AND THAT HE IS DEFENDING SOMETHING THAT IS MORE THAN OBVIOUS.

No one had to think about it twice except you. “ - “Juror #10: What little things? Listen, when these fellas don't ask questions it's because they know the answers already and they figure they'll be hurt. “ “Juror #10: Six to six... I'm telling you, some of you people in here must be out of your minds. A kid like that..” AUTHOR TELLS DIRECTLY: No the author doesn’t tell, we found out during reading the book or watching the movie.
