Your essay should focus on the way in which innocent people who stick to their principles are condemned and hanged while those who lie go free. Thomas Putnam, for example, coerces his daughter into lying for his own greed in acquiring large plots of land. The judges refuse to listen to any reasonable argument against the proceedings so they are unjust and corrupt.
