Crucible reflection

I think the judges are to blame because they didn’t have to believe every accusation made. Every person who came in the court who acted possessed or said someones spirit was there could have been investigated, but instead they just believed them. I personally think the judges just acted like they wanted to hurt people and even in the end they knew they looked bad for blaming everyone except the people who were actually telling the truth.The innocent refused to lie and were willing to die before lying.
