How can the justice system be unjust? Does it treat people unfairly because of their strange acts? Acting strange can be used against a person even though it is unfair to dot hat. In Albert Camus’ The Stranger, the character Mersault acts in a strange manor throughout the book. This causes his death. Mersault acts strange throughout the book, which makes people judge him. At his mother’s funeral, his behavior was so strange that the people started to talk about him. How he didn’t want the coffin open, and was drinking and smoking in front of it was strange. Mersault also notices everything around him, like when the hornets were flying around and how hot it was at the home. He notices everything and watches everything except his mother’s coffin. Mersault is also acted strange the day after his mother’s funeral. The next day he sat in his bed and then wanted to take a swim. He ran into a friend Marie on his way. They swam together and talked during the day, and at night they went back to Mersault’s house and had a one night stand. Usually he would got to the Celeste’s but to avoid the questioning about his mother’s funeral he didn’t go.
Like in jail he thinks about otherwomen, and not Marie who he was in a serious relationshipwith. This isvery strange because even the most honest person would lieto make themselves look better in front of a jury especiallyif they were on trial for murder. Even when he ison trial and the prosecutor asks him questions, he answerswith the truth even though it makes him look bad. This is good sometimes except hedoesn8217;t care that Raymond is a pimp and beats hisgirlfriend, which is bad. He was just aperson who didn8217;t like to get all emotional about things,and he takes action against people who make him mad. Always watching andobserving situations is another thing that makes Mersaultstrange. Mersault seems to have so many bad things about him,that it is surprising that he never lies. He caresabout little things like running and swimming, and not otherimportant things like his mother, spending time with hisgirlfriend, and changing his job. He thinks it is easier to say yes than no, butnever lies to cover himself up. Mersault has no sense of commitment to anyone oranything. It is also strange how he does not believe in God. He says that hedoesn8217;t really love Marie but will marry her if she wants. Theonly thing that he shouldn8217;t have done was kill the Arabguy. He was friends with theneighborhood pimp Raymond.
