Socs v Greasers

Hmm where are they?
The greasers killed Bob!!!
The Soc v Greaser conflict causes lots of problems and is very important for Ponyboy. One of which is that he is impacted as a person because he feels like he has to be a greaser and doesn't want to be thought of as a hoodlum or a greaser. Pony is also mad about how it is out of his control and he can't control who he can and can't hang out with. Ponyboy is also frustrated about how this will not change, the rich will stay rich and the poor will stay poor, and a win in a rumble will not change anything.
Ponyboy feels unsafe in the church because he thinks that he is very vulnerable to animals and to police. This does change latter when he has been in the church for a couple of days and he is with Johnny and realizes that there is no real danger. Ponyboy must stay in this church for about five days or else he might be caught by the police and sentenced to jail. He also must dye and cut his hair to be shorter and blonde. This church is very important to Ponyboy because it confines him to such a small area for such a long time, but also helps him grow because he got to spend more days with just Johnny and learned to stay young and pure.
Bob makes Ponyboy feel sympathetic and sad that he died. He feels challenged though because Bob was one of the socs' who beat up Johnny and gave him a big scar with his rings on his hand. Bob's actions impact Pony in many ways. One of those ways was that when he was killed, Pony and Johnny were framed for his murder (Well they did do it though) but they needed to stay in the church for days and starved. Bob's actions also started the rumble because the other socs were mad that Pony and Johnny killed Bob.
