ARTHUR “BOO” RADLEY
All Boo does is watch the neighborhood. Boo Radley is like a mockingbird because he’s misunderstood and everyone seems to attack him when in fact he is actually a human being just reaching out for someone Even animals are worthy of being left alone if they’re doing the same to you.
Like a mockingbird, he never hurt anyone. He felt compassion for Mayella and helped her do her chores for free. Killing Tom brought about no good and prevented no evil, just like shooting a mockingbird.
