In Plato’s Apology, Socrates was tried and executed for, in my opinion, doing nothing wrong. Socrates did not deserve to be put to death as a punishment for being himself and trying to learn from others. If I were on the jury for Socrates’ trial, I definitely would vote to acquit Socrates, since he was not guilty of any of the accusations he was tried for. He definitely did not deserve to be executed

Socrates, and that is because there was so much slander going around about him during this time
period. I think if I had heard as many rumors as the jurors had then it would be hard to make the right decision about Socrates in this case. All of the jurors already had set ideas in their heads about him, and I think this is why the judgement in his case was so hard to make.
