Gentlemen of the jury, I would like to point out to you three pieces of evidence that prove this young boy is innocent. I would like to revewthe purchase of the knife, the old man hearing a yell, and the movie theater. The future of this young boy is in your hands now, make the right decision. Find him innocent.
First off, the knife that was purchased the night of the murder. After fighting with his dad, he wanted to get away from his house. He lives in the slum, a very dangerous place. Feeling he needed defense, he went to the shop and bought this knife. He is very knowledgeable of knives, and here is something to think about. The wound that was found on his dad cut at a strange angle. If this boy had stabbed him, it would have been a an underhand cut. Not like the overhand wound found on his dad.
What about the old man claiming to hear the boy yell? How could this be possible? The old man does not have that good of hearing. Also, at that same time, the train was going by his house. This train is very loud. How could an old man with poor hearing hear this? . This old man is not a believable witness to the murder of this man. You can’t believe what he said. The train was just too loud for him to possibly hear the yells of the boy.
After leaving his house, the boy went to see a movie to get away from all of this. He was under total stress. I am sure he did not care to look at the title of the movie. He probably just wanted in to get away. This way his mind was focused on other things other than his father. He thought that if he got away. he would come back in a better mood to be with his father.
I have presented you with the three best points of evidence to prove the innocence of this young boy. Think of this, how could a young boy do this to his father? Even though he was a victim of abuse, l love is still inside him.That is why this boy is innocent. Now remember, Jury, this is a life and death situation that sits in front of you. Make the right decision, or the young life of an innocent child will be ruined forever. The defense rests.
