The Author gives readers clues and makes them think to figure out questions, she never gives a straight out answer. The author has events that exemplify prejudice really well. One example of prejudice in the story is the trial. Bob Ewell sues an African American man named Tom Robinson for raping his daughter. The court pleads the man guilty without any proof of rape.
They also discredited the validity of his previous domestic violence calls and accounts by friends and family of spousal abuse when Nicole and O.J. were married. This was essential to the prosecutions’ attempt to prove motive, or mens rea an essential factor for a criminal trial. The Juror’s later would state in interviews that they did not see the link between his spousal abuse and a motive for murder. They also attacked the credibility of witnesses from the Los Angeles Police Department.
The Ewells' plan was revealed transparently. In Mayella's testimony, Atticus asked her a series of questions like why no one came to help her, especially her seven siblings when she had claimed to have hollered, or whether or not Bob had beaten her up. All Mayella did was to remain silent, because their spurious story didn't add up after all and she didn't know how to answer those questions. The facts were clearly showed: no one had beaten her up but her own father. So when they announced the verdict, I was so shocked that I was nearly knocked of the chair.

Because of that, her tongue was cut out so she can´t speak any more. Katniss feels guilty because she has not tried to help this girl, even if she had the chance to do so. In the movie this relationship is never mentioned. The second difference which I want to point out is the reaction from District 11 to Rue´s death.

As the novel goes on, V and Evey have a conversation that says: V: I may have killed those fingermen that attacked you the other night too, but I heard no objection to that. Violence can be used for good.
After her family found out, she was sent to jail. When she gets out in 12 years she is going to be exicuted by her family. The only way around being exicuted is if she marries the man who raped her. The practice of honor killing is most commonly found in middle eastern areas such as Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey. While some might stand by their claim of ethical relativism, and believe that we do not have the right to criticize the practices of honor killing, it is not morally right to stand by silently and watch as innocent people are being murdered.
The death in the story is not so noticeable as you begin reading. Decay on the other hand is apparent. As a child, her life was very difficult. Her father occupied a high social position in the town of Jefferson. He shunned Emily from society and forbade anyone to see or even meet her.
