Life or Death, Riding on the Decisions of Twelve Angry Men…

Boy, oh boy, oh B-O-Y, I really DO hate, to be the one, in the HOT SEAT here!!!

Life or death, riding on the decisions of twelve angry men, and that, is how the American justice systems work, after all, you WILL get tried, by your PEERS, as stated by the law there.

And, your life, is left, in their hands, and, once the jury goes into deliberation, well, there’s NO way of presenting the NEW evidence, getting NEW witnesses to testify on your behalf again.

Life or death, riding on the decisions of twelve angry men, and, if you’d heard or read about the story, you’d know, how angry those jurors got, debating the details of that trial, and, that just shows, how the more people are in a room, the less-than-likely they’ll be able to agree on something, because everybody HAS her/his preconceived notion, heck, sometimes, the judgments of whether or NOT the person on trial is guilty or innocent had already been made up, and, we ALL know, how hard it would be, to ALTER someone’s views, once the person’s views is set.

Life or death, riding on the decisions of twelve angry men, how can they possibly come to a common consensus, that’s made from the examining over the facts, presented evidences, IF they let their emotions get in the way???  You are, totally SCREWED there that’s the only SURE thing that comes out of that!
