A very similar thing happens in To Kill a Mockingbird, when Bob Ewell accuses Tom Robinson of raping his daughter Mayella, but Atticus proves that it was most likely Bob who did it. Bob Ewell, Mayella’s dad, the person who should be protecting her at all costs. The most common injustice in the novel appears when the kids find the case between Tom Robinson and the Ewell family to be unfair, highly illogical, and racist. When the verdict of guilty is revealed to the town, Jem becomes upset and says, “You just can’t convict a man on evidence like that- you can’t”
A simple ‘ how are you’ can have someone think you 're polite. Atticus no matter what always stood up for Boo, he knew him but his kids on the other hand did not so he told them they don 't know him or understand him they 've heard of everything about him but it was all wrong. The power of words is most important in this world, it is a do or don 't type of action.Mayella used her power of words and ruined someone 's family and caused them to die due to trying to save himself. Atticus used his power of words to help Tom and support
He appears to have been a very wicked and incorrigible person. Specially, he violated the Massachusetts law 1646 by carrying himself as a stubborn and rebellious son; he did not listen to the voice of his natural parents “who are persons of good repute for piety, honesty, and estate”. He had committed many crimes such as using unacceptable words to call his parents, frequently threatening to burn his father's house, killing his cattle and horse, busing and beating his father’s servants imperiling one’s life, etc. However, his parents still accepted his behavior, loving him with an excessive indulgence which made him, unable to be improved person, become more cruel. He was finally punished to stand on the ladder of the gallows with a rope around his neck for an hour.
Despite his small size, Freak demonstrates this by helping Max, who had the splitting image of the murderer, Killer Kane. Many people feared Max, including his grandparents, and they tended to distance themselves from him. Kids at school called Max names like Mad Max or Maxi Pad, continuously making fun of his “no brain” head. As a result, Max never had a friend, at least until Freak came along and reached out to him in his lonely world to bring a light of possibilities to his life. Starting from the escape of Tony D., Freak saved Max, as he says, “..because they never knew it was Freak who rescued me”(Freak the Mighty, pg.41).
Boo is almost never seen through the story but it seems to have been treated the worst. He really has helped the community even though he has stayed inside. But the community does not treat him well, they makeup rumors about him and say that he is crazy. There is a quote from chapter 31 that explains this. "He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives.
Being pushed aside and treated like a monster instead of a human like he wanted he raged and sought revenge on Victor. The act of a killer is not at fault because of birth and he was meant to be. The actions of a killer are because of how he/she were raised and treated. Killers can be stopped before they even begin to think about murder. “Killer’s are not born, they are
It was for the strange reason that he was cruel, that the poor fellow never killed a man who asked for mercy, or committed a cruel action which he could have prevented.” (White 339) All of these strange feelings contradicting each other inside him cause him to have a lot of problems growing and changing. He is unable to grow as a person for most of the story after due to his own inner struggles, but he does change his mind about and regret many things, like when he killed Gareth and Gaheris, “’You couldn't help it.' 'I could have helped it.' He was in his customary religious misery. 'It was my fault.'"
His father was not the best, and has also been accused of beating Ramirez and the rest of the family. The fact that his Green Beret cousin showed him horrid pictures from his time in Vietnam surly did not help the circumstances either. He learned from both “men” how to be a man, which ultimately ended up making him a psychotic serial killer. He was made into something that he may not have been had he not been seeking approval from these men. The social learning theory states that people learn from one another, via observation, imitation, and modeling.
Hurst suggests that expectations are also a form of egotism that can lead to resentment; hence coming into conflict with one’s identity, such as alteration and remorse. Doodle’s desire was to be loved and supported by his family. He was invalid - he could not walk; thus everyone had low expectations towards him and thought he would die except for Aunt Nicey. His brother (the narrator) tried to kill him as he saw him an unbearable disappointment and his father had built him a mahogany coffin. For instance, “It was I who renamed him [...] Crawling backwards made him look like a Doodlebug, […] because nobody expects much from someone called Doodle.” Society’s attentiveness is predominantly towards the aspects of and in this story Doodle’s impairment seemed to have negative impacts on him that the society has caused.
Not all kind of violence is used to make someone’s life bad, it can also be used to protect someone you care about and you don’t want them to get hurt. In the movie “In A Better World”, Christian and Elias bombed Lars’ car because Lars was hitting Dr. Anton and the boys wanted revenge, so they bombed Lars’ car hoping that Lars’ would stop messing and hurting Dr. Anton. Another way that shows why violence is used to protect someone is that in the movie, When Elias was getting bullied by Sofus, Christian came and beaten Sofus with a metal stick. The reason why Christian did this was because on the first day of school, Elias was the first person to become friends with Christian and they looked out for each other. Another reason why violence is used to protect someone’s loved ones is that when Elias got hurt trying to protect Lars’ wife and daughter from the explosion Christian and Elias planted earlier.
