The children sneak out of the house and they see Atticus outside of the jail where Tom Robinson is staying. The men want to see a man inside the jail but Atticus protests their plan.
Dill, Scout, and Jem try to surprise Atticus, but he did not see it that way and tried to send them home. they refuse and the men try a more physcial way to get the children to leave but do not succed, as the children stayed for a bit, causing some problems.
