Each juror, with the exception of #8 enters the jury room with an individual prejudice. Whether it stems from a personal experience which has jaded the individual, stereotypical behavior, selfishness, arrogance, or mere indifference, each juror brings a preconceived notion of the defendant into that jury room. This creates turmoil between the individual jurors, thus enhancing the definition of prejudice in and of itself. It is only through the conflicts between them that they are ultimately able to recognize the gravity of their purpose, and put aside their 'baggage' in order to execute their Constitutional duty as best they could.
