Is Steve Harmon guilty? He was a part of a robbery and he "shot" someone and killed them. He
is on trial for murder now. But the question is... Did he do it, Steve was supposed to be a
look-out for the robbery. He was just supposed to go inside and tell the others if there was

If Steve really was there then he would have got some of the money. I think Steve is guilty
because when he writes in his journal he is not talking to the jury members, he is talking to the
readers and what does he care if the readers think he is guilty or not guilty. I really do not think
he cares. If he does not care then why would he lie in his journal entries. If he lied in the journal

then he would just be...
