Tom Robinson is just like a Mockingbird. He minds his own business and is harmless. This is why people were amazed when Tom Robinson was accused of rape, but everyone on the jury was white and prejudice and this is why Tom Robinson was convicted of rape. In this story, Atticus quoted," It's a sin to kill a mockingbird." It was a sin to kill Tom for a crime that he didn't commit. In the end Tom did die.
