What are some good quotes from the jurors in Twelve Angry Men that show the individual and justice?
Juror 9 was an elderly old man, but quite insightful. Although not physically strong, he was very sharp and had the courage to stand up for what he believed in. He appears to …be the most observant in terms of noticing people's behaviours.
Juror 10 is a loud mouthed impolite bigot. He berates people he doesn't agree with and has a low opinion of people living in slum areas.
Juror #1o agrees with juror #12 and changes his vote to Not Guilty without any hoopla attached. You may have the number wrong for the juror you are attributing the quote to.
Juror Number Ten (played by Ed Begley) is garage owner who simmers with anger, bitterness and racist bigotry and needs the support of others to reinforce his stance. He is nas…ty, repellent, intolerant, reactionary and accusative. This character segregates the world into 'Us' and 'Them' categories.
There have always been twelve jurors on any jury panels that I know of. Does something give you the impression there should be any less? I believe twelve individuals would be …able to come up with the appropriate verdict much better than six. I only say that because I realize some cases only employ six to eight jurors. But, not in Capital cases!
1: High School Football Coach 2: Bank Teller 3: Owner of Messenger Service 4: Stock Broker 5: Never Stated 6: Painter 7: Salesman 8: Architect 9: Never Stated 10: Garage Owner… 11: Watch Maker 12: Advertising Executive
Juror 7 was a salesman.
Juror 2 brings up the point that the accused is a half foot shorter than his father, so it would have been hard to stab him downwards. Juror 5 (the one brought up in the sl…ums) brought up the point that the killer slashed down with the knife, as opposed to upwards like you would in a knife fight, using the duplicate knife brought by Juror 8 as demonstration.
Juror 1, the foreman never seemed to get involved in the arguments. He is a representation of complete impartiality. When Juror 1 votes not guilty, it is a turning point, a si…gn that the evidence points to a not-guilty verdict.
His normal job is not specified, although he did have a job as a juror .
Juror #9, later identified as McArdle was the oldest juror.
Juror #10 (Ed Begley) was a racist. He kept speaking that "they" were all liars. Juror #3 (Lee J. Cobb) had lost his relationship with his son and hated the defendant for alle…gedly killing his father.
He is the one juror who is truly pragmatic and tries to follow only the evidence with no emotions.
