In his closing argument during the "Mississippi Burning" trial, United States vs Price et al., prosecutor John Doar said to the jury, "Members of the Jury, this is an important case. It is important to the government. It's important to the defendants, but most important, it's important to the State of Mississippi. What I say, what the other lawyers say here today, what the Court says about the law will soon be forgotten, but what you twelve people do here today will long be remembered. Does not everyone see and understand that it was a matter of absolute necessity that you twelve people of Mississippi be asked to sit as jurors and judge this case? These defendants will stand before you on the record in this case and they will beg of you for indulgence. In effect they will beg of you for indulgence. In effect they will say as Gloucester said of old as he stood over the body of his slain king, he begged of the queen "say I slew him not." The queen replied then say they were not slain, but they are dead (Note: this is a reference to a scene in Shakespeare's The Life and Death of Richard the Third). If you find that these men or that each of them is not guilty of this conspiracy it would be as true to say that there was no night time release from jail by Cecil Price, there were no white knights, there are no young men dead, there was no murder. If you find that these men are not guilty you will declare the law of Neshoba County to be the law of the State of Mississippi." Evaluate Doar's argument in terms of logos, pathos, and ethos. Use evidence from the statement to support your answer.
It's English 4 right? What lesson? I have this
*sigh* I somehow managed to delete my response. Doar appeals to emotions with pathos when he is biased on his feelings towards the topic of slavery. Doar's emotions spark with the topic since he can relate to the topic of slavery himself. Ethos would be the slaves. Logos stems from the fact that what Doar is saying is logical and factual. Please look back on the excerpt and find examples in the text to support these. Also I cannot stress enough that you completely put these in your own words. FLVS runs all written responses through turnitin and they will easily recognize a carbon copy. They will even know what student you got it from. If caught you may be expelled. Please keep this in mind.
