Storyboard Text

  • 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.
