This conclusion, made by the prosecutor concerning Meursaultand his abnormal and detached attitudes towards the customs and belief ofsociety, results in the verdict that Meursault should be placed under the deathpenalty. This is strikes me as strange as the judgment is of his nonconformingattitudes and not the crime he committed. Unexpectedly, the jury does not pick upon the shifted focus of the trial that has become a verdict of character, whichalone should not be the cause of a fatal penalty. The general consensus on theMeursault’s punishment is evidence of people’s unquestioning conformity towardsan argument that is over-dramatized and well-presented, although notsufficiently supported.
