In this next quote, Bob is testifying about how Tom raped his daughter and Atticus is defending Tom throughout the court case. This begins to show how the destruction of innocence started to effect Tom in the court case. Bob lives on the outside of town where the African Americans live. He is considered an outcast by the people of Maycomb. Bob testified accusing Tom of rape, but there was a lot of evidence in the sheriff's testimony to prove that Bob was lying in his testimony, like how the sheriff said that when he heard about Bob's daughter.
Specifically, according to this theory Jim Jones began to mess around with the idea of a “Revolutionary Suicide”(Jonestown Massacre 3). For example, a member from The People’s Temple that escaped told about practicing suicide drills (Streissguth 1). Meanwhile, after the member told people about this a reporter and Congressman Leo Ryan went to investigate what was going on. He found that everything that was said was true such as the suicide drills, beatings, and many people asked for them to take them with them. Once Ryan decided to leave Jones found out and sent gunman to terminate Ryan and the reporter out of fear that the truth about Jonestown would be exposed.

He was explained as from Mr.Utterson a longtime friend who was always there for him. Speaking of Mr. Utterson, in the novel he is really in the mix of both but I really think he is good. In the novel they described him as “loveable” (2). He is truly the one that tries to fight the evil and had a lot of influential power on others.
Although the author set himself the task of using the natural materials of this case to write a nonfiction novel, it is clear that the audience is given information about the murders, and murderers however, the author’s emotions are also present. Capote's tone in the novel strives to be objective, but he cannot help but let his compassion towards the criminals and the Clutter family emerge. His compassion shifts the novel in a way to pull on the heartstrings of the audience and to allow for a deeper understanding of his purpose. Many of the tones included in the book brings out the importance of the American Dream and life being a gift. The quote, “Then, touching the brim of his cap, he headed for home and the day’s work, unaware that it would be his last,” is an example of the author’s serious tone to support his purpose of how the gift of life can be taken so unexpectedly.

Throughout the story of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Scout Finch and her brother, Jem, encountered the many trials of living in the small county of Maycomb, Alabama. Within their society, the ingrained principle was that those of lighter colored skin were superior to those of darker skin. The black members of the community were looked down upon as slaves and simply used for labor. Although this was the common practiced belief, it created immense corruption and cold-heartedness amongst some of the white skinned dwellers of Maycomb. The word of a white man would always trump the word of a black man; this is shown in the narrative of the villain of the story, Bob Ewell, a man who enjoyed employing prejudice and racism towards black people to an
Injustice means lack of fairness or justice, and/or an unjust act or occurrence according to the dictionary. Upon reading three stories of injustice, one might find that some reactions are more understandable than others. ‘Young Goodman Brown’, ‘The Lesson’, and ‘Saboteur’ are all stories of a character being handed some form of injustice. Mr. Chiu in ‘Saboteur’ had the most understandable response to his injustice. Goodman Brown learns about all the bad in the world from a dream, Sylvia learns about the injustice of racial discrimination, and Mr. Chiu learns about injustice through the police.
We must not forget what they went through, lest we allow it to happen again. Millions of people died due to the prejudice of a political regime. The treatment of the Jewish people in Terezín concentration camp draws parallels to the treatment of North Korean political prisoners in camps through the country. In the novel Escape from Camp 14, Shin Dong-hyuk discusses what it was like growing up within the prison camp and his subsequent escape. He faced extreme prejudice based on his family’s perceived infractions against the regime.

Out of the knowledge came a pain that would have broken a normal man but in the end only fueled the drive to learn. Through the painful times it was his hope for the future and all he hoped to accomplish. Douglass’s rise from the “pit” should act a source of empowerment for anyone who has ever felt slighted, trapped or has been treated as a lesser for they are much more powerful than they
