The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street theme : you cant assume things without facts
it's not me
it was the kid Tommy
In "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" by Rod Serling, one of the main themes is that you shouldnt assume without facts because they all assumed it was one one another when they werent helping themselves they were only hurting themselves and other people. Also when anything out of the ordinary happened the only thing they did was listen to a 14 year old boy and accuse all the neibors because they didnt know what was going on and the little boy said it was one of them. That also lead people to belive he was the monster because he had all the facts.
Evidence one: in this scene Les Goodmans car turns on when he is nowhere near the car and people have obserd thoughts.
evidence 2: in this scene charlie shoots Pete Van Horn because he thought it was some sort of monster when t was really jut his neibor.
evidence 3 : in this scene charlie ws being accused of being the monster so he sais that it is the kid, Tommy.
