The cameramen eventually leave and give them privacy. Grandaddy was forced to confront the cameramen in order to make them leave.
Have you ever made a decision that created a negative effect on people around you? Attics, from To Kill a Mockingbird, faced this when he decided to take on the case concerning Tom Robinson. Everyone clearly agrees that Atticus did indeed take the case. But while some argue that he was right in taking it, others he should not have taken the case.

In an interview, however he defines himself stating "No, I said this: That in areas of this country where the government has proven its--either its inability or its unwillingness to protect the lives and property of our people, then it’s only fair to expect us to do whatever is necessary to protect ourselves". He later goes on and says he respects government and laws as well as " I’m not advocating the breaking of any laws. But I say that our people will never be respected as human beings until we react as other normal, intelligent human beings do. And this country came into existence by people who were tired of tyranny and oppression and exploitation and the brutality that was being inflicted upon them by powers higher than they, and I think that it is only fair to expect us, sooner or later, to do likewise."

White supremacists trusted the issue was clear and took the perspective point that African Americans were a subordinate race and ought to, in this way, be held subordinate under the law. Social equality activists trusted that all men were made equivalent and hence ought to be equivalent under the law. Lord utilizes numerous quotes from knowledgeable chronicled figures to fortify his contention. He recognizes his concurrence with St. Thomas Aquinas who said "a treacherous law is a human law that is not established in everlasting law and regular law. "vii This can be connected to the predicament of African Americans as common law would direct that all men are made equivalent.

You can’t get much worse than that for a name. And a baby girl at that … You don’t want to give this motherless child the name of the man that killed Jesus, do you?” (Morrison 19).

Although rather than taking on the characteristics of Pilate from the Bible, Pilate makes her own life, full of giving and

There's no real reason why Atticus's behavior should reflect on anyone but himself and perhaps the parents who raised him, but Aunt Alexandra seems to think it's her business, too. To be fair, given Maycomb's obsession with family, she has a
Marlon Brando, a world renowned actor, once said, “Privacy is not something that I 'm merely entitled to, it is an absolute prerequisite” (Brando). Brando is saying privacy should not be given, but should be an automatic privilege.
