Soda, Darry, Dally realized that too by hearing that Johnny still died even though they won the rumble. Dally even heard that Johnny said that fighting was useless after all. He felt sad that even he won the rumble, he lost his friend. He decided then to rob a grocery store and try to threaten the cops so he could get his death. The other problem Ponyboy solved it really well was that he decided to save the kids that were trapped in the church considering he might ignite the fire.
A large reason why Tom was convicted was due to Mayella’s testimony, because she was a teen-aged white girl crying on the witness stand. As Scout explains after his death, “Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella opened her mouth and screamed” (323), proving that Tom’s life had always been in Mayella’s hands. Mayella’s lies during her testimony led to the death of an innocent man, for which she should be held responsible. Another consequence of Mayella’s dishonesty, as mentioned above, was the ability for her father to live life as a free man. After the trial, Bob Ewell swears to Atticus that “he’d get him if it took the rest of his life” (290).
The man he is defending is innocent of the charge of rape by a man named Bob Ewell’s daughter. Through testimony at the trial to the jury, the girl simply kissed had a black man. Also, during the trial Atticus shows to the jury that the girl appeared to have been beaten by someone who used their left hand and Tom could not use his left arm at all, the jury still found Tom guilty. Tom was killed later trying to escape but Bob Ewell, wanted revenge against Atticus for making what he thought was a fool of him in
The jury had return from making their decision. It took forever for them to make a decision, which means that they thought really hard about their verdict and that they might find Tom not guilty. As the paper was handed to Judge Taylor the word that come to play put me in complete shock. “Guilty…guilty…guilty…guilty…” was all I heard the jurors’ say. I could not believe what I heard; Tom Robinson was found guilty of raping and beating 19 year old Mayella Ewell.
Afterwards, he was brought to Rose, a servant, to be taken care of. Just like most other people in the house, she treated Matt poorly. For example, she gave him deep litter that he was allergic to and she also both verbally and physically abused him. It wasn’t until one day, when Celia was passing by and saw Matt. She had not been informed that Matt was in a cold cell and had El Patrón take Matt out.
Atticus was honoured to bring up a case against Mrs Dubose, and justice will solve this issue. Few days after, Atticus came to pick up Visenya, to go with her to the court room, where the judge is going to determine Mrs Dubose’s punishment. However, they have arrived and when the trial started, Atticus wanted Mrs Dubose to stand up and to confess her crimes against this town. There are plenty of mysteries that even the greatest detectives couldn’t solve, Mrs Dubose had something related to violent crimes against the innocent. Atticus blamed her for Tom Robinson’s death and also for the failed kidnapping attempt on his children, which it resulted the
In this essay, I will be talking about four memorable people during the Salem Witch Trials. These four people have their own reasons for what they did and did not do, and I will explain how their backgrounds had such a lasting impact in the Salem Witch Trials. Giles Corey was a very wealthy stranger who had arrived with his fourth wife, Martha. Feelings of hatred emerged with the Putnams after he unwittingly testified against his wife, who was sentenced to death. As a result of this hatred, and also because the family of the accused was always suspicious, he was tried as a warlock a month later.
She was jailbait, knew it the first time I saw her. Lennie never meant to hurt anyone”, George said breaking into a sob towards the end. “Hey its your guy’s fault she thought she was able to talk to men alone!”, Curley yelled George was shoved back by Curley and tripped on the flooring and squirmed backwards on the floor, Curley was advancing slowly towards him like a hunter when the prey can’t win. Carlson stepped in front of Curley in hopes of stopping him, but he was pushed back towards the table. George got to his feet and readied himself for a fight.
This reveals that Atticus was afraid of the group of men that were going to hang Tom Robinson. After the halloween pageant, Scout and Jem were walking back home when they got attacked by Bob Ewell. “From somewhere near by came scuffling, kicking sounds, sounds of shoes and flesh scraping dirt and roots.” (Lee 351). This scene demonstrates that Bob Ewell attacks Jem and Scout, trying to get revenge. When taking this case Atticus wasn’t aware of the consequences it will bring to him and his family.
During the Middle Ages, hitting, raping, and in some cases killing was condoned, and wasn’t a crime. Throughout the Wife of Bath’s prologue, we see examples of one of her various husbands assaulting her. Especially with John, we see he had “Beaten me [Wife of Bath] in every bone” (272), “He [Johnny] struck me [Wife of Bath] still can ache along my row of ribs” (272) and “Smote me on the head” (279). But when Johnny hit her, causing her to be deaf in one ear, she refused to remain submissive any longer and she hit him back: “I up at once and Smote him on the cheek” (280). Her actions, though seemingly benign in this modern time, was far more significant then.
