The victim then said, “No voice there cried ‘stay’ for me in the empty square” (poem). The hangman said he only had the chance to keep murdering people because nobody stood up and said something about it. It is ironic that the victim said nobody cried for me because when other people were getting hanged he didn’t say anything either. This leads to the bystander effect because the people of the town did not want to say anything since maybe someone else could have said

Natty refuses to let anyone in and stands in front of his door with his shot gun. Natty ends up getting arrested but ironically gets rescued by Oliver and Elizabeth.
