He was also human! Killing another human is never right. I do understand that george was trying to protect lennie but killing him is certainly not the right way to do it. Lennie may have problems with accidentally killing things but george didn't have to kill him for it. George promised to protect lennie and by killing him George broke that promise.”Him and me was both born in auburn.
“He’s dead, Mr. Finch”(Lee 357). Although Mr. Ewell had died, Scout and Jem would have been dead if Arthur Radley had not been there to save them so Atticus had endangered Scout and Jem in that sense. Another way Atticus had endangered himself and others is because he had tried to defend Tom all night outside the prison from a lynch mob. “Get aside from the door, Mr. Finch” (Lee 202). This was a threat given to Atticus by a lynch mob that is after Tom in the county jail and if Scout had not come to save Atticus, he may as well have been
Bob Ewell depicts the stereotypical white supremacist, Atticus on the other hand chooses his morals over the society’s expectations. When brought the case of Tom Robinson, an alleged black rapist, any lawyer in Maycomb would’ve immediately denied Tom. Atticus chose to defend him, even though he knew he had no chance of winning. He told Scout that he must argue it to uphold his sense of justice and respect, Atticus knew Tom deserved someone to fight for him. This all ties in with what Atticus told Scout,“Remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it.
He also murdered Simon with the assistance of the other boys except for Ralph and Piggy. They murdered Simon because they believed that he was that they were looking and hunting for. In the spite of everything, Jack wouldn’t have tried to prevent any of the deaths of the other boys on the island because both of the boys who died were against him and everything he believed in. Jack wouldn’t have needed to try to prevent or save Piggy and Simon from dying because their deaths wouldn’t have affected his group and only Ralph’s group would’ve suffered from
Then almost immediately after Alex contradicts himself by thinking “ In my book and the blind eyes of justice, the fact that a man had it coming doesn’t make killing him right “ (Patterson 194). This shows Alex’s true opinion in that he believes that killing a man who was clueless doesn’t make it right. It also shows he thinks everyone is innocent until proven guilty just like most cops are caught not and that he believes only courts can issue punishment not some group of vigilante
At the beginning of the text it states the quote, ”Governor George Wallace stopped two black men from a doorway trying to enter.” This is showing the theme of acceptance because policeman were not accepting others for being who they are and taking them as a normal citizen. Another thing that shows the theme of acceptance is the next quote, ”The police still don’t know who set off the bomb killing four.” This is showing acceptance because whoever is doing the bombings really doesn’t want to accept blacks and whites together and is going to do whatever to not let it happen. The last example of how the theme is acceptance is because at the end of the text it states, ”Black and whites worked together risking their lives to push for a change.” This shows the theme of acceptance because the blacks and whites are showing acceptance by working together and risking their lives to push the rule for everyone to be together and accepted. This shows how the theme of the text, “The Watsons Go To Birmington,” is
After this exchange, Danforth began a trial to hold Cory accountable for his response, or lack thereof. Giles knew his reputation would be shattered if he gave up one or more of his friends for his own safety. Cory’s dignity and pride also would not allow him to respond yes or no to an accusation saying he practiced witchcraft. Giles decided not to give the court any satisfaction for his arrest by giving in to the accusations or denying them and hanging for it. Either way he could have answered would have killed him, morally or physically, so he didn’t answer.
He saw that Ponyboy was going to get drowned! If he thought that justice was more important than his friendship he would have gone to the police and let Pony die. The police take care of the Socs. but he didn’t do this. He took matter in his own hands and was loyal.
Yet Tom Robinson could not have done a thing to stop the mob if others weren't there to protect him. “To Maycomb, Tom's death was typical. Typical of a nigger to cut and run. Typical of a nigger's mentality to have no plan, no thought for the future, just run blind first chance he saw. Funny thing, Atticus Finch might've got him off scot free, but wait-?
