The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street Theme: Fear and Suspicion are Destructive Forces Hope Orseth
What did you do?
It's probably Charlie. He was so quick to shoot Pete.
Evidence 1: In this scene they were all crowding around Les Goodman because they thought that he was an alien.
Evidence 2: Charlie was super afraid that the dark figure was an alien so he shot him.
Evidence 3: They didn't know who the alien was so they all started accusing each other.
My first evidence to go along with my theme is that they all crowded around Les Goodman’s house thinking that he was an alien. When his car started they all thought that it was a sign of him being one of the aliens. Even though they didn’t have any evidence, only suspicion, they went on to believe this and accuse him. My second evidence is Charlie was so afraid that he thought that the dark figure was an alien and shot him. When they all saw the figure Tommy said it was the alien and Charlie got so afraid that this was true so he shot him. Even though they didn’t know for sure he shot him because he was so afraid he didn’t take a second to see who it could’ve been. My last piece of evidence is that they didn’t know who the monster really was so they just continued to accuse and suspect each other. Each time they got a little bit of evidence about someone else they use it against them to prove they’re an alien.
