Brian hopes that the system will work for Amanda and her father. An innocent man couldn't be wrongly convicted, could he? But then Brian does a school project on Leo Frank, a Jewish man lynched decades ago for the murder of a teenage girl---a murder he didn't commit.
Worse still, Brian's teammate and best friend, Julius gets arrested for nothing more than being a black kid in the wrong place at the wrong time. Brian can't deny that the system is flawed.
As Amanda's father goes on trial, Brian admits to himself that he knows something that could break the case: it is a mysterious jogger he saw on the day of the murder. He is haunted by this jogger who seemed to be hiding in his gray sweat suit hoodie as he ran past Brian the day of the murder. This could break the case against Amanda's father, but then Brian fears that if he should come forward with this information, he will become the target for another kind of perfect shot.
