12 Angry Men Report To begin with, leadership is an individual that influences a group of followers or any individuals to achieve a common goal. The influence method throughout the leadership is very necessary to be available since without influence there isn’t leadership. Leadership is the action of leading any group of people or organization and having the ability to make change, all this happens from a leader that have a vision in which leadership is also setting a new direction or vision for a group that they follow. A leader is the spread head for the new direction. There are 12 angry men who are jurors should take verdict of a young boy, but all of them were against the boy except one of the jurors who was defending the boy’s problem since he has a vision and he totally won. The jury of twelve angry men, entrusted with the power to send an uneducated, teenager to the electric chair for killing his father with a switchblade knife, is literally locked into a small room on a hot summer day until they come up with a unanimous decision either guilty or not guilty. The compelling, provocative film examines the twelve men’s deep-seated personal prejudices, perceptual biases and weaknesses, indifference, anger, personalities, unreliable judgments, cultural differences, ignorance and fears, that threaten to taint their decision-making abilities, cause them to ignore the real issues in the case, and potentially lead them to a miscarriage of justice. The 12 angry men at the beginning were careless as if there were no case to discuss; they were discussing sport issues rather than thinking about the boy. At the beginning of the play, eleven of the jurors believe that the boy killed his father. They summarize the evidence of the trial as so: A 45 year old woman claimed she witnessed the defendant stabbing his father. She watched through her window as the city’s commuter train passed by. An old man living downstairs claimed that he heard the boy yell “I’ll kill you” followed by a “thump” on the floor. He then witnessed a young man, supposedly the defendant, running away. Before the murder took place, the defendant purchased a switchblade, the same type that was used in the murder. The defendant claimed he was at the movies at the time of the murder. He didn’t remember the names of the film.
Juror #8 picks apart each piece of evidence to persuade the others. The old man could have invented his story because he craved attention. He also might not have heard the boy’s voice while the train was passing by. Although the prosecution stated that the switchblade was rare and unusual, Juror #8 purchased one just like it from a store in the defendant’s neighborhood. Some members of the jury decide that during a stressful situation, anyone could forget the names of the movie they had seen. The 45 year old woman had indentations on her nose, indicating that she wore glasses. Because her eyesight is in question, the jury decides that she is not a reliable witness.
