I swear it was an accident... I didn't mean to kill him
By: Maddy Barragan The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street Theme: Weapons don't just kill, thoughts do too
Well, my car isn't starting eith-
Who have you been talking on your radio with.. Huh who!
You think I talk to one eyed monsters that are green?
I believe that the theme for “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” is weapons don’t just kill, thoughts do too. The reason why I chose this theme is because like in the first evidence, Charlie literally killed someone (Pete Van horn) with a double barrel shotgun. This made everyone think Charlie killed Pete Van Horn on purpose because maybe he had the answer to what was going on and Charlie didn’t want Pete to tell everyone. My second evidence shows that just because Les Goodman’s car starts all by it’s own all of a sudden, it makes him the alien/ monster. This proves that any little detail that happens coincidently could make you seen guilty. Finally for my last evidence, Steve is now being suspected for being the alien/ monster because of what he doesn’t in his basement with a radio. This shows that Charlie ( the one who was accusing Steve of being the alien/ monster) was thinking that maybe Steve as talking to aliens from another planet. As you can see, these eyes my reasons that support my evidence on why I believe the theme for “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street” is weapons don’t just kill, thoughts do too.
Evidence One: Everyone was on the street when they saw a dark figure walk towards them. Charlie took the gun from Les Goodman and shot the "figure". Turns out it was Pete Van Horn.
Evidence Two: Les Goodman also tried starting his car but it didn't work. When he stepped out of the car and went in front of his car, it started all by itself. Then, Charlie noticed that Les Goodman didn't come out to see the flash in the sky.
Evidence Three: Everyone was arguing then Charlie started to suspect that Steve was the monster/alien since sometimes late at night Steve would be in his basement with a radio “talking to someone”
