"Its a sin to kill a mockingbird." Mockingbirds don't do anything besides make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat gardens, nest in corncribs, instead they just simply sing their hearts out for us. In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee she talks about her childhood and everything she remembers. She recognizes the fact that being a southerner, it was a source of shame to some members that they had no recorded ancestors, there was tons of racism, and everyone in the town of Maycomb delt with drama and extreme racism almost everyday. Atticus Finch, Tom Robinson, and Boo Radley are metaphorically portrayed as mockingbirds.

Atticus Finch was a mockingbird. Atticus was a really good man, believe it or not. For starters, Bob Ewell spit in his

He was a good mean wether anyone in the town believed it or not. Tom is described as talking with a soft husky voice, meaning he talks slow and quiet, almost like a whisper. Calpurina says Tom and his family are clean living and they care about what they live in and where they live. In arguments most people get in, they don't defend themselves but Tom did. He knew he didn't rape or hurt anyone so he defended his case and told the jury nothing happened. Tom was attacked in more ways than one. Bob Ewell made up the whole story about Mayella being raped. Tom's left arm was crippled so there was no way he could physically attack Mayella. He couldn't use one arm to rape someone so it was just a made up story. Bob Ewell blamed Tom because he peeked in the window and say Tom and Mayella together. They kissed each other but there was no proof that Tom raped her. It was definitely a sin to kill Tom Robinson. Tom Robinson never did anything to hurt anyone, he kept to himself and enjoyed himself as well. He was very nice to hang out with around the town of Maycomb, most people loved his company and liked having him around. Lastly, most people in the town thought he attacked Mayella but he didn't. He did not do any harm, nor did he ever want to. He would never do anything to hurt someone on purpose because he believed it was …show more content…
People believed he was a bad man because he shot at the kids for peeking in his window, but he does not intend to do any harm, he just wants everyone to respect his privacy. To start, Boo Radley was a good guy. When Jem ripped his pants on the fence, Boo found them and stitched them back up for him. When Ms Maudie's house burnt down, he was secretly there and he gave Scout a warm blanket to keep her out of the cold. Later in the story when Scout and Jem were getting shot at, he was there. Boo saw that they were in danger and he protected them. Boo Radley was attacked more than he should have been. He seriously did not get enough credit for saving Jem and Scouts life that night when they were leaving the auditorium. Everyone thought he was dangerous and harmful because he stayed locked up in his house more than anyone and he didn't seem to enjoy peoples company like everybody else. Believe it or not, it would be a sin to kill him. Most of the time he would stay locked up in his house and didn't bother his neighbors or anything. He never wanted to shoot at the kids, he just didn't want people looking in his window, but he intended to save them if they needed it so he did. Other than that he would stay locked up in his house and he wanted to be alone most of the time. Privacy was huge with Boo Radley and that's why he left everyone alone and liked his alone
