Tom Robinson Unjustified Trial In To Kill A Mockingbird

Good Essays
In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird Tom Robinson is the best representation of a mockingbird because the town created a sin by killing him and he was an innocent man who deserved better. Although some may believe that Boo Radley is a better example of a mockingbird, Tom had an unjustified trial and suffered death because of it. Some people in the town knew Tom’s death was a sin and they didn't agree with it. He was also a helping citizen who did nothing but try and help. Tom was over all an innocent man that displayed peacefulness. First of all, by killing Tom, the town committed a sin. In the novel, Heck Tate states, “There’s a black boy dead for no reason, and the man responsible for its dead. Let the dead bury the dead this time, Mr. Finch.”
