In Cold Blood 4 “Dick wasn’t even in the same room. He only run in when he heard them struggling. Dick was carrying his shotgun, and how he described it was: ‘Smitty took my shotgun and just blew that man’s head off.’ And he says, ‘Dad, I ought to have grabbed back the gun and shot Smitty dead.

Tom wants answers, so he sneaks out of the camp, and finds Jim Casy. Casy would converse to Tom about the prison life, and he would also talk about how he wants to revolt against the farm owners so that the prices were fairer. Once this conversation is done, there is a large rustling behind Jim Casy’s tent, so the two leave the area in a hurry.

Okonkwo worked very hard for those things, then to have everything destroyed. If he was to be reinstated into the village he will then have to work harder to get it back.
