TWELVE ANGRY MEN CHARACTER ANALYSIS JUROR #9

Monday, December 5, 2011


Juror #: 9 Name: McCardle Occupation: Well we cannot find the occupation, but i think he already travel around the world, sharing more time with family and working less. Brief Description: Eldest man in group, white haired, thin, retiring and resigned to death. He is the man with more years of experience. What this juror thinks (words, actions): He is very respectful in all his acts, and opinions. he is concentrated in the case, listening to other with interest. Mcarddle is very observational, he sees and evaluate the phrases with context and points views, what the other 11 jurors don't. What other jurors think (say about him): They think that he is an old men, so no one put attention to him, especially the juror #3. The other jurors do not believe in the wisdom that Mcardle have. His role in the case/novel (evidence, explain): He made a discovery that the witnesses across the street that saw the kid killing his father, did not have eyesight, because the mark of the glasses between her nose. What his vote was (guilty not guilty): At first his vote was the the young kid was guilt but then juror 9 was the first one to agree with juror 8 that there is no enough evidence to call the young man guilty. What would have happened if he voted differently? Well obviously he play a very important role considering the vote of juror 9, calling the kid not guilty, give the story a turning point. it means that the other jurors start thinking in another way instead of engaging their thoughts. If it were you what would your vote be? I identify myself with juror #9 because at first i would have voted guilty because of the the case, but then i would have changed my opinion to not guilty because the facts were being presented and it did not match.
