Evidence 1: In this scene... less explains that he does not know how his car just started and stopped. The people are surround him waiting to hear his answer. Less gets mad because people are accusing him of being the monster.
In “ The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street” by Rod Serling, one of the main themes is accusing someone and getting angry at someone can cause them to turn on you. The first scene that supports my theme is when Less Goodman’s car starts out of nowhere, and everyone starts going to his house like an angry mob. They were all suspicious about how Les's car started. Les gets mad because the people are accusing him of being the monster. This supports the theme because when everyone was going to Les’s house they turned on him . Another scene is when Charlie's lights came on out of nowhere. That scene also supports my theme because when Charlie was trying to explain himself the people who lived on maple street got upset and they were coming at him like a angry mob,and that made him turn on them. Last but not least, this scene is when Charlie shot Pete Van Horn because it was an unknown figure. Pete was walking back from checking the other street and he came at the wrong time. My theme connects to that scene because when Charlie shot Pete everyone started to get mad at Charlie even though they knew the reason why. Those three scenes show that when you get angry at someone or accuse someone they can turn on you.
Evidence 2: In this scene.... one person saw that Charlies lights were on so everyone turned around to see the lights. Charlie did not know what was going on and he was trying to explain himself to everyone. This connects to my theme because Charlie was scared and this made him really mad that people were questioning him.
Evidence 3: In this scene...Pete Van Horne was walking back to Charlie, Steve and the rest of the people on Maple street. Then Charlie shot Pete Van Horne and the people on Maple Street were angry at Charlie.
