Even though his own brother committed the sin, he knew it was wrong no matter who it was: "Maybe a jury will cut him loose. I wont. By god I wont” (143). Knowing most of Wes’s family is against the fact that Frank should not be punished; Wes puts his emotional feelings aside and grows up. Just by one fault by the closest man in his life, Wes realizes he has changed in better ways as things have gotten more complicated: “ My father stood for moral absolution ” (144).
In Montana 1948, Wesley Hayden has to make one of the toughest decisions of his life, do the right thing and arrest his brother, or let his brother off because they are family. In Wesley’s eyes, he felt that it would be better to stand up for justice instead of back up his family. As a result of standing up for justice, Wes paid a hard price. He was never his father’s favorite son, but when Wes arrests Frank (the perfect son), it doesn’t sit too well with Grandpa Hayden. Julian Hayden practically eliminates Wes from his family.
He is a victim of favoritism, and because of never being the one with the attention he has learned not to be like his bad father and his brother by teaching himself what is right in others eyes, not the eyes of his dad. At the opening of the story, Wes is described as a “boring” sheriff of a small town in Montana. Wes had attended law school but forcefully had to take over his father’s position of county sheriff. It was evident that this was not an ideal position for him. Because of his position rather than his brother’s, he experiences jealousy and is a victim of favoritism.

Although Marie has a serious cold, she also uses her weak voice to protest being checked by Uncle Hayden alone. From these few words, readers can feel the intense fear and panic from Marie and know that Uncle Hayden is an indecent rapist.

After David`s mother tells this father all the things, he waits for his father to explode, but, instead, his father said as quietly as before: “Why are you telling me this?” (36:4). Although I know that Dr. Hayden is David`s father`s brother, I consider that in front of justice and brother`s relationship, I will prefer to choose justice.
DID HE HAVE ANY OTHER CHOICE? In ma opinion I would say this is a grey situation meaning that it’s not black and it’s not white its in the middle, basically it’s a 2 sided case.

There are many other ways in which George could have dealt with lennie for instance he could have taken lennie to the police, if he could have killed someone like a brother to him just like that then obviously he could have easily taken him 2 the police station and left him there to be taken care of. He could have easily told the police men what was wrong

I can’t imagine the pain Ted’s mother experienced, knowing that his model son was sentenced to death after being convicted of

Prejudice is a preconceived opinion not based on reason or experience. Sometimes prejudice is a destructive force in society. In To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, prejudice is shown in many ways. Prejudice was shown when Atticus was defending the jail, a group of men came to kill Tom and also when Scout was getting teased at school by other kids because her dad was taking Tom’s case. Furthermore, when Tom Robinson was accused of being guilty even though he was not, and died because of it.
