Charles is accusing Tom for being the person behind all of the chaos, even though he does not know for sure who it is.
Charles shoots Peter Van because he thinks that he is a monster appering from the darkness.
Charles accuses Steve because of his radio that he has been making.
The theme from the episode of The Twilight Zone can be judged in many ways. Yet in my perspective the theme is that giving the wrong information can lead to huge problems. For example, about near the end of the episode, Charlie starts running to his house away from the angry mob just before he gets tackled by an unknown person which gives his head an unforgettable cut. Then Charlie proceeds to blame Tommy, who is a little kid, was responsible for all of the chaos and havoc going on. Because of this the mob believes Charles and starts questioning Tommy. This supports the claim because even though Charlie does not know for sure what is happening he accuses Tommy for it which makes the mob angry at him. This was giving incorrect info because Tommy actually had nothing to do with this situation and was mostly a bystander. Another reason that supports the claim is because while everyone was frightened as the "monster" approached from the darkness while Charles aimed with Don's shotgun Charles actually shot the monster. The so called monster was actually Peter Van to see how the electricity was going and possibly fix it. Because of the accidental murder of Peter Van, the mob got upset with Charlie and started to question him. This supports the reason because Charlie accused the black figure in the darkness therefore shooting it, even though he did not know who or what it was which he didn't take the time to think about. One of the many last reasons was when Charles brought up that Steve was making a radio which seemed suspicious to him. This caught the mobs attention so they also became curious. It got to the point when Steve went insane and started telling everyone crazy things like he talked to aliens and just absolutely crazy untrue statements. This supports the reason because an unnecessary and strange subject that Charles brought up made everyone think that it was strange without using common sense and was basically giving crazy information. These 3 evidence sources support the following claim, giving the wrong information can lead to huge problems.
