I think it depends on how you would describe a good man. If it is more doing what’s right no matter what than Jem is right. From his point of view Walter Cunningham would of hurt Atticus to get to Tom Robinson. If you think being loyal to your friends than Atticus is right. Walter Cunningham has nothing like the Ewell and probably is worried that they may loose the case. If that happened then his kids would have nothing and be left to fend for themselves. Walter Cunningham probably though that the case shouldn’t even had happened. That they should have locked Tom Robinson up and have been done with it. If you say that you can’t be a good person if you’ve been involved in something like this, then your saying if you’ve done drugs that your a terrible person and can’t do anything about it.
