When asked the question, “Are you aware that alcohol is a factor in many cases of violence,” he states, “Yes, but that’s not my fault.” Lou Dempsey also failed the experiment of conducting compliance checks. In Jerry Newman’s affidavit, he said that their crew sent in decoys into Mr. Dempsey’s store to examine whether or not he checked for identification for being under the age of 21. These checks are sent out each month and Lou Dempsey’s store failed two of the tests. When this happens the police staff suggests a beverage server training for the owner. Dempsey took no interest in the training.

They’re lazy, unmotivated, and showed to be very rude in some parts of the book. The Ewell family never went to school, besides the first day. One of Bob’s sons, Burris was in Scout’s first grade class, but only came the first day and caused quite a scene. Burris got upset with the teacher and called her all sorts of rude names. He didn’t feel bad about it at all afterwards, as Scout tells us, “He waited until he was sure she was crying, then he shuffled out of the building.” This family doesn’t have a lot of wisdom in them, they don’t have the best life, but none of them will work so it really is their fault for their situation.
Homes was a shy child but got angry at his mother for moving him at a young age. He’s mother stated he was “awkwardly social” and at the age eleven attempt to commit suicide. Although he wasn’t socially accepted he was able to be accepted to a university. Holmes life changed when “three days after failing a key oral exam at the university in early June 2012, Holmes dropped out of his studies without further explanation,” (“James Holmes”,2018).

The family was forced to take Stanislovas out of school and get him a job at the lard machine. The factory was not fit for a kid, the boy witnessed traumatizing events and began to fear the walk to work (Sinclair 75).

In the story, the reader never receives examples of how his father corrects him or shows him how he needs to act. Possibly, Paul never realizes what his father is trying to do for him and finds it unimportant. The author did not mention Paul’s mother very often throughout the story. The only information the reader is told about his mother is when Paul’s teachers are conversing about him. One teacher mentions that his mother died when he was only two months old (2).
She decided not to tell Paul because the doctors said that he might not remember why he had to wear glasses.
