How have the townspeople been affected by the last several months of court proceedings?

The townspeople are fed up with all the people being killed in the town. Parris is also scared because he found a dagger in his front door, and is afraid that if respectable citizens like John Proctor and Rebecca Nurse are hanged, the town will revolt. Paris even starts to blubber like a baby, not because of all the suffering he has caused, but because Abigail stole his money before she left.
