This storyboard does not have a description.
Fred gets arrested and and put on trial, where you will see both the lawyers defense\arguments presented to a judge, the Philosophers, Thomas Aquinas (Natural Law) and Thomas Hobbes (Positive Law) within the fairness in justice theme
Fred's lawyer declares his defense to Judge Nordman
In this case, I'm taking the natural law view and that he simply had no other choice, it was an act of desperation
"we human beings must exercise our natural reason to discover what is best for us in order to achieve the end to which their nature inclines."- Thomas Aquinas, this relates because Fred wanted what was best for his daughter, and he needed the necklace to achieve that ,he never intended for all of this to happen
The Defense was presented in the previous and now the Plaintiff arguments will be presented
"Positive law is the belief that law is established by the state, for the benefit of the state as a whole" -Thomas Hobbes, that punishing Fred would benefit how the legal system is viewed within the state.
Fred didn't need to result to that act, he could've been financially helped through benefits. He may have felt that it was the ONLY way but he did commit a crime and people did die, not in his hands but it still happen because of the result of his crime and justice needs to be served.
My verdict as Judge would be, favouring the defense because I'm in charge of how the legal system is viewed within this society but with everything taken into account, I order the court to financially help the wife and daughter of Fred. I find the defendant guilty.
