2. I thought the scene where Mookie threw the trash can through the window showed a lot about his character. Mookie seems to be a good guy for most of the movie, but when he is with his friends I believe he got influenced by his peers to join in uncalled for activities. I think the act was somewhat misguided because under any other circumstances I don't think he would have done that.
3. I think the movie definitely about arguments but also has some political presence. Throughout most of the movies their are arguments, but certain scenes definitely has some politics in it. One of those scenes is when the policeman killed someone who didn't deserve to die. It raised a political issue that some people may take personally. Overall I think the movie was more about arguments in general rather than just politics.
