Overall the Salem Witch Trials should never even happened, innocent people died in the hands of vengeful parents and crazy children.

Arthur Radley, otherwise known as Boo Radley, got into trouble with the law as a teen and was then confined to his parents house for the rest of his life. From then on he was never seen again with the exception of one occasion when he left the house to save Jem and Scout's lives from the drunken fury of Bob Ewell. He killed M. Ewell and saved Atticus' children. Knowing that, according to the law, Boo had to be tried for his actions by the Court of Justice, Atticus decided it was best that no one found out that Boo had ever left his house. "It'd be sort of like shootin' a mockingbird, wouldn't it" (Lee, 370).

I believe in favor of the teenagers, that giving them a life sentences without parole is not the best option. Teens haven 't lived that long in order to learn from their mistakes and fully experience the real world and being on their own without their parents guidance. In the case of Jacob Ind, I believe he was wrongly accused of murder and was mentally scarred due to the abuse of his parents causing him to commit this crime. Jacob and his brother would be sexually abused almost every night by their stepfather and emotional abused by their mother 's hate of the two boy 's existence. He saw no way out of this situation and had to free himself from this torture before it would kill him.

This story makes me think about OJ Simpson, he was acquitted for the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman, but a year later he lost a civil suit to their parents which essentially made him guilty of the murders. But long before either jury had a chance to vote on his innocence or guilt he was found guilty in the “court” of public opinion. The public opinion vote will haunt Simpson through his entire life, people will always see him as guilty and think he got away with murder. Much like OJ, the chief will have the “court” of public opinion to contend with the rest of his career in Pamlico county.
