To Kill A Mockingbird
A trial is the examination before a court of the facts or laws in a case in order to determine that case. It is the act of testing or proving by experience or use. In the novel “To Kill A Mockingbird” a black man, Tom Robinson, was accused of raping a white woman, Mayella Ewell, and was brought to trial. There was three distinct views on Tom Robinsons trial. In the novel, the townspeople of Maycomb believe in Toms guilt while Atticus and the children believe in Toms innocence. Atticus couldnt support the verdict because he was in a very prejudice court and no matter what the proof was, the outcome would be still be the same. Atticus knew that Tom Robinson would be found guilty. The victim, Mayella, had been beaten, but not by Tom according to the evidence “He blacked your left eye with his right fist”. Tom Robinson would still get convicted because it was an all white jury. Tom didnt help by saying “Yes suh. I felt sorry for her, she seemed to try moren the rest of em-!
-“, because black people wernt supposed to care about white people. It would have been impossible to do
