Tempers flare throughout the county and many people end up getting hurt; physically or emotionally. This only proves that the spread of evilness can diminish any bit of innocence left in a persons mind. In TKAM, this is expressed when Jem felt sick to his stomach as he heard the guilty verdict. Also, when Scout couldn’t understand why Miss Caroline would request her to stop learning out of school. Another incident occurred when Dill ran out of the courthouse, crying in shock.
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee demonstrates that the world is surrounded with good and evil. Scout, Jem and Dill all start innocent, but when they become aware of the evil from the adult world, it forces them to mature quickly. It makes them realize the truth about life, being that there's good, but also evil. Harper Lee uses prejudices in To Kill A Mockingbird to show the evil in life. She shows this through women not being allowed to take part of the jury, people being judged on their social class or their different lifestyle but the most prominent is racism since the jury convicts Tom for a crime he didn't commit just because he was black.

He states that if Mary Warren “has been conquered by Satan...her neck will break for it but if she speaks true, I bid you now drop your guile and confess your pretense, for a quick confession will go easier on you”( Miller 95). A situational irony is an event that surprises the audience. This would be considered ironic since both crimes of Mary Warren and the girls are on the same level of severity and seriousness. However, Mary Warren is the only one being killed for her confession of her crimes, while the others live.

In this quote it shows gender discrimination. “But I kept aloof from their more foolhardy schemes for a while, and on pain of being called a girl”(Lee 55). This quote shows how it bothers Scout when they call her a girl even when she is a girl. Here is another quote showing gender discrimination. “I was not so sure, but Jem told me I was being a girl, that girls always imagine things, that’s why other people hated them so, and if I started behaving like one I could just go off and find some to play with” (Lee 54).
