Why don't you tell the truth child ,didn't Bob Ewell beat you up?
There is one way in this country in which all men are created equal- there is one human institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein and the ignorant man the equal of any college president.
One more thing Gentlemen before I quit.
The institution, gentlemen is a court.
I'm no idealist to believe firmly in the integrity of our courts and in the jury system- that is no ideal to me, it is a living, working reality.
A court is only as sound as its jury is only as sound as the men who make it up.
I am confident that you gentlemen will review without passion the evidence you have heard, come to a decision and restore this man to his family
