1. The case being presented seemed very practiced. Even though she said that she regrets everything, in that moment she didn't think about the consequences. Even though she didn't do anything violent, she did not remain neutral and got involved with the situation. She said she wanted to be the peacemaker but she could've helped in a different way.

She had said she was there for the support of her best friend. Now although I still don’t think she was very smart for going in the first place she shouldn’t have been guilty. She was simply at the corner of the block until she got in the car to go pick her friends up but they ran into trouble with the owner of the house so she stepped out simply trying to calm the situation.
