2nd response to Crucible
IP: 173.75.112.27


Even though justice wasn't best served in a court of law in The Crucible, it the best system we have for determining guilt or innocence today. During the Salem Witch Trials the courts were ran by the church and there weren't juries or lawyers to present evidence like we have today. Imagine someone being accused of being a drug dealer today being tried in a court similar to the courts of the witch trials. You could have someone who wanted your BMW accuse you of being a drug dealer so they could get your property. It would be your word against his and if he wanted he could have others claim the same thing without any evidence.

If the courts were ran like they were during that time period, I would change my mind and say justice is NOT best served in a court of law. Fortunately we have laws today that have to prove you are guilty based on evidence. Everyone truly are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
