Also not only was Kane’s deontology tested, I believe that his virtue ethics were being tested as well. He needed to face Miller because this man was and still could possibly be a killer and if Kane doesn’t do something about this issue that has come back it will haunt Kane for the rest of his life knowing that Frank Miller will always be on the lookout to get to him. Kane needed to end this once and for all so that he could fulfill his act of duty as a Marshall of Hadleyville and also feel that the since of justice has been served. I believe just as Kane did with deciding to have a show down with Frank Miller, I would have done the same thing because as Marshall of a town you are to do what is right for the safety of you as well as your town and I wouldn’t have left that town until I knew that it would be safe for the town as well as for

However, the fuel to this motivation initially comes from placing himself in Tom’s shoes in order to see the unjust actions towards him, thus taking the initiative to do something about this prejudice. Atticus goes to the jail cell and possibly endangers himself to prevent the endangerment of Tom. Although he knows he may be risking his life by guarding the front of the jail, he shows moral courage for facing his fears and standing up for what he believes is ethical.
