I feel like if Atticus feels it would be the “right” thing to do to defend the case then he should do it even if he’s gonna loose. If it truly isn’t the black man’s fault then Atticus should sacrifice nearly anything for what he believes in. I think that is Atticus is willing to risk his reputation and reputation of his family to defend the black man then it shows how caring and strong Atticus is. I think if it’s morally the right thing to do then Atticus should risk his family. I really like how Atticus doesn’t care what others think as long as he’s doing the right thing nothing else matters.
