Prejudices such as the 5th juror when he says 'The kids who crawl outat those places are real trash'(p.12) show his social prejudices towards the boy and how he had already made up his mind before he had even come into the juryroom. Another good quote to show the 5th juror's prejudices whould be ;I used to play in a backyard that was filled with garbage. Maybe it still smells on me' and 'I dont want any part of them, I'm telling you'.
