Finally, (Arthur) Radley has been accused for

Finally, the Finch’s family thinks that Atticus Finch’s decision has led the family to shame in town. Atticus has been attacked through his kids by Bob Ewell. “Heck? Atticus Finch. Someone’s been after my children.” (Lee 353). In addition, Atticus tried to defend Tom Robinson and no one gave him a chance to win at the trial just because he was defending Tom Robinson (a coloured man). In the novel, Atticus has experienced unfair judgement and Boo Radley has been in the same position. Boo (Arthur) Radley has been accused for the worst things that happened even if the people in town did not have proof that he did it:The Maycomb school grounds adjoined the back of the Radley lot; from the Radley chickenyard tall pecan trees shook their fruit into the schoolyard, but the nuts lay untouched by the children: Radley pecans would kill you. A baseball hit into the Radley yard was a lost ball and no questions asked… Mr. Radley’s boy was not seen again for fifteen years… According to Miss Stephanie, Boo was sitting in the living room cutting some items from The Maycomb Tribune to paste in his scrapbook… As Mr. Radley passed by Boo drove the scissors into his parent’s leg, pulled them out, wiped them on his pants and resumed his activities. (Lee 11, 13)People in town started creating an evil picture of Boo without knowing who he really is in reality. Scout believed that Boo Radley probably did not do any to anyone after when she noticed those gifts in the tree hole for them, she understood that he was trying to be friends with Jem and her and her neighbors are just making up stories about him, for example, when Jem was telling Dill another story of Boo Radley. “He goes out, all right, when it’s pitch dark. Miss stephanie Crawford said she woke up in the middle of the night one time and saw him looking straight through the window at her… said his head was like a skull lookin’ at her.” (Lee 15 – 16). Furthermore, even Scout has been treated unfairly sometimes, for example when she goes to Aunt Alexandra’s house with Atticus and Jem for christmas and there she gets into a fight with her cousin, Francis, who kept calling Atticus a “n***** lover”. After, Scout beats up Francis, she gets in trouble and Uncle Jack does not listen to her side of the story but instead he listens to Francis. “Well, in the first place you never stopped to gimme a chance to tell you my side of it – you just lit right into me.” (Lee 113).
