The old man gave evidence that he heard the boy say “Ill kill you” from his apartment below and that he saw the boy running from the down the stairs from the apartment after rising from his bedroom. The jurors eventually question how such an old man could have moved that fast and, with his bad hearing, heard what he claims he did. The old woman said she saw the boy on the train yet was just sleeping at the time. Did she really have her glasses on? If she didn’t have her glasses on, how did she see the boy.”   The knife the boy used was supposed to be unique. 4th Juror explains that, on the night of the murder, the boy bought a uniquely carved switchblade knife identical to the one used in the murder. The boy claims that he lost it that night, before coming home to find his father dead. 4th Juror presents the death weapon, the “only one of its kind;” 8th Juror surprises the others by presenting an identical knife he had purchased in a pawn shop two blocks from where the boy lived a few nights prior, shattering the claim that the knife was unique and identifiable. An argument breaks out among the jurors as to the new doubt; most are just upset that they’re still arguing and want to just declare him guilty and go home.
