activist helps to cover up what the government's own evidence showed…….Fifth, I stand before you as a proud man; I feel no guilt! I have done nothing to feel guilty about!

The judge may have got money from the original culprit (Alstory Simon) to divert the case towards Anthony Porter.

He wasn’t guilty in the first place and they said he was.”(295) Jem constantly throughout the book claims that Tom is not guilty and wants it to change, and doesn’t know how to except that the jury said different and that’s how it has to
