Juror #8 (link=nm0000020]) bought a knife and shows it to the jury in order to refute the idea that the boy's knife is one of a kind. As pointed out in the discussion revolving around the knife, it is illegal to buy/sell/own a switchblade knife. After the jurors have left the room at the end, the camera pans across the jury room table and the knife #8 purchased is still laying on the table.

The credits only credit the jurors. All other actors in the film (judge, bailiff, accused, etc.) go uncredited.
