Movie Reaction Paper 12 Angry Men The true administration of justice is the firmest pillar of good government opens the movie, entitled 12 Angry Men; it is one of George Washington¶s famous quotes which is engraved into the foundation of the justice system of the United States of America both literally and figuratively (Lumet &Rose, 1957). The case of this movie is a murder; an 18 year old boy is alleged to have killed is father. The facts of the case provide two eye witnesses¶ testimony which places the young boy in the vicinity of when the act was infact committed. The father sustained a stab wound to the chest, which was four (4) inches deep by a switchblade pocket knife. After the alternate jurors were dismissed the deliberation of a guilty or not guilty verdict began in the jury room. The twelve (12) jurors were men of various ages and occupations. The preliminary vote ruled 11 to 1 in favour of the guilty verdict. With one man to convince the jury set out to return a verdict as quickly possible to the judge. After several heated exchanges, and approximately six (6) to eight (8) voting sessions, the jury produced the verdict of not guilty. Breckler, Olson & Wiggins (2006) defines group polarization as the tendency for group discussions to strengthen the initial leanings of the members in a group (p.409). Simply, group polarization suggests the same concept as a magnet, where the iron fillings would be attracted to the side which most attracts them. Also, in relation to the movie, 12 Angry Men, group polarization is expected to be present in a jury room. This indicates that the jury would lean predominantly toward either verdict (guilty or not guilty) before actual discussions seek to highlight otherwise, in the case of Juror no. 8 in the movie; whom honestly did not know whether or not the boy was guilty (p.412).
