The Kingdom vs. Jack Spriggins
I mean you think about these things, and the next step is doing them.
You mean go back to the Giant's?
Don't tell me you don't think about it all night and day. It was so easy to take that goose. What else could you take?
Well, the Giant is a pretty big guy.
Meet my friend, (pulls out a gun) he's bigger than some old Giant.
Fatherless, impoverished, and lonely, Jack needs money. Mama tells him he must sell his one and only possession, his beloved cow. Is it surprising that on his way to the marketplace, he falls into the wrong crowd? Jack acquires a handgun from the "shady bean salesman," Pinto Joe. A first time offender, Jack has stolen a golden goose, kidnapped a harp, and killed the Giant. The jury must decide if he is a well-meaning young man who made a few bad choices or a hardened criminal that is a threat to the community. There is no question that he killed the menacing Giant, but what was his intent? Was it pre-meditated murder, or simply self-defense? He will have his day in court!
