Imagine what the Outsiders would be without bad choices. The outsiders is a book full of bad choices , but there are some good choices too. First Johnny killed bob because he was drowning Ponyboy , second Dally sends Ponyboy and Johnny to an old abandoned church , and lastly Johnny died saving little children in a burning church. First Johnny killed Bob because he was drowning Ponyboy. Johnny was using the blade as a form of self defence.
Pony would have drowned because Bob was holding him under the fountain till pony blacked out. So Johnny stepped in and killed Bob with his pocket knife so Pony could live. This shows how much Pony ment to Johnny and that Johnny was willing to do anything to keep Pony alive even if that meant killing someone for him. Which he was more willing to do because this man Bob brutally beat Johnny earlier in this story and left him for dead. Also on this page is when Pony and Johnny had to discuss what they had to do and that was run away and even though Pony didn 't do anything wrong he was still willing to support Johnny and run away with him.

Probably because he was a hood, he killed a young boy, and he stole from convenience stores. But even though he may have done those things at the beginning of the story by the end he regretted all of it and wished he had more time to go back and fix it and be a better person. To be a hero you must be able to be brave even if you’re facing danger straight in the face. You must also be willing to make sacrifice even if you’re sure you’ll die. So in conclusion Johnny Cade is the hero of The Outsiders because he died because he went into a burning building to save the
Dally does not deserve to be considered a hero though, unlike Ponyboy and Johnny. These 3 people are people I consider that are very important to the book. Ponyboy is one of the people in the book that deserves to be or is a hero. Ponyboy is very courageous and helps others. One of the quotation that can support that he’s a hero is when he realized the children are in the burning church he was not afraid at all and said, “I’ll get them, don’t worry!” (p. 91) This quotation supports my statement because it he said to not worry, because he’ll get them which shows he’s courageous and helps others.

In the text it says “She believes in me; and I wouldn’t do another crooked thing for the whole world.” This means Jimmy is loyal to Annabel because he loves her and wouldn’t steal and risk compromising their relationship for the world. Jimmy is loyal because he doesn’t steal from the one he loves or anyone

The only problem would be the police, because the Socs would say differently than self-defense.

By killing Mr. Ewell; Boo Radley killed his innocence. After the attack, Boo gently carried Jem to Atticus so that Dr. Reynolds could take a look at him. At first, Atticus thought that Jem had killed Mr. Ewell, but Mr. Tate insisted that he fell on his knife. As they were arguing, Atticus realised that Boo had killed Mr. Ewell.

The fear of killing a boy his age would haunt him forever. Lastly, he shows he is fearful when people were going to die.
