All those things are sacrifices football, time, and he also sacrificed college. Dally helped whoever needed it. Such as he saved his brother Johnny when he was hurt in the fire, he pulled Johnny out which caused his self to get hurt. Then he knocked Ponyboy out. You would have to be a real hero to do something like that to someone you love.
They put you in an electric chair for killing people! !” In that sentence Johnny had just killed Bob and and he hadn 't thought about going into that electric chair he just saw that Bob and the Socs were drowning ponyboy and did what his heart told him to do. Ponyboy was also very startled that Johnny would do such a thing. And was even more scared that they would kill Johnny for killing Bob. “I said we’re going back to turn ourselves in.” (Hinton, 87) Johnny was very brave in
This is what the text says happens the night of the trial. Bob Ewell was a racist, a liar, and he attempted to kill two children because their father was trying to stand up for what’s right. Even Boo Radley who stayed locked up in his house all day could tell you this much about Bob. The last reason I believe it was Boo is because Boo does all his work where nobody can see him. Like I said previously when telling about the nice things he did for the kids, he wasn’t seen.
Dally is a hero at windrixville because he saved Johnny who was stuck in the burning church. He saved Johnny because he didn't want Ponyboy to go back in the church and get more hurt or die. Also the jacket that he gave Ponyboy saved his life, “That jacket saved you from a bad burning, maybe saved your life.”(81). Dally was a hero at the lot where he died because he died for Johnny because Johnny was what Dally cared for the most, “Dally risking his life for us, trying to keep Johnny out of trouble,”(131). Finally I believe that Darry is a hero in my definition in the whole story, maybe not when he slapped ponyboy, but everything else he is one.
He insists that he killed Bob and that Johnny is not dead. Darry makes Randy leave. Darry explains that Ponyboy is confused about everything that has happened and that the doctor says he needs time to heal”(Pdf 141) This explains that Ponyboy is having a really hard time comprehending the fact that Johnny is dead, and the fact that Johnny is dead and that he killed Bob dead is not going throught Pony head because he refuses to know the truth.Pony knows he did not kill bob is that he just doesn't want to be hurt.” It was Johnny, not me, who had killed Bob ---I knew that too. I had just thought that maybe if I played like Johnny wasn't dead it wouldn't hurt so much.”(pdf 151).This shows us that Pony accept his friend is dead he does not want to accept it but he has to because is not healthy for him.Ponyboy needed a theme for his project so he decided to accept
One of the greatest thing Johnny did to show is bravery as being a hero was by going into a burning church to save little kids. Johnny knew it was dangerous but he still went in anyways. Because of him going into the burning to save the little childrens he got bunt on the back because a wood of fire fell on him. That caused him to be seriously injured and in a critical condition. Johnny surrendered his life for the little kids.
That showed bravery because he risked what he believed in to help somebody out. Another example is “ Bob Ewell fell on his knife. He killed himself,” said Heck ( Lee, 273). Boo Radley saved the kids the night that Bob Ewell attacked them. Boo killed Bob and Heck knew it, but he told Atticus Bob killed himself.
Harper Lee uses Boo Radley and his past to show his innocence being destroyed by his childhood. Boo is a caring man that does not seek harm but society sees him as a psychopath for supposedly trying to kill the Radley family. For example, the text states , "As Mr.Radley passed by, Boo drove the scissors into his parent 's leg, pulled them out, wiped them on his pants and, resumed his activities" (13) and later on the text says "Mrs.Radley ran screaming into the street that Arthur was killing them all, but when the sheriff arrived he found Boo still sitting in the living room, cutting up the Tribune" (13). These quotes show Boo Radley with a different identity, causing others to be scared of going near him, and therefore isolating him from the rest of society. Mr.Radley was a "Foot-Washing Baptist", he believed anything pleasurable was a sin, he took away everything from Boo and put him under house arrest for making little mistakes.
“Montag only said, We never burned right… Hand it over, Guy, said Beatty with a fixed smile. And then he was a shrieking blaze” (Bradbury 113). Montag’s last encounter with Beatty pushed him over the edge by first threatening to find Faber and kill him, which made Montag turn off the safety switch (STEWE-2) After killing Beatty, the government labeled Montag a criminal. “He was three hundred yards downstream when the Hound reached the river” (Bradbury 133). Montag acts against his society by running away from the punishment they have decided to give him.
Another was the death of a 60-year-old black man named John Dukes, who was killed by whites in revenge for Dukes shooting a white constable. Dukes was hanged and even set on fire by the mob. Because of these events, and many other previous ones, Senator Wagner requested that the federal government do something. However, the Attorney General said that they could not become involved in state government issues, unless the federal government allowed it. What was even more disappointing was the fact that no anti-lynching bill had been passed on the federal level.
He never has to wait long. He killed the Indian man named Walker after his life insurance policy and proved his death by drink poising (125). • Government has not shown any interest to help Indian people from murders. Letters sent to Washington, D.C. begging for help went unanswered (126). • Agents are quick to move in and declare local Indian landowner’s incompetent in order to provide them with white guardians who have the authority to lease their land to oil companies.
As Dally witnessed this, he went to rob a grocery store, causing the police to chase him. He finally raises his gun with no ammo and the police shot him. Dally successfully suicided because his buddy Johnny died, and Ponyboy lived in pain for some time after
Johnny has killed Bob (I think we already established that). There is not anything to argue that because it happened. But what I can argue is the “Why?”. Ponyboy was getting drowned so he did not see anything. BUT, Cherry Valance has already testified that Bob was intoxicated and Johnny was using self-defense.
