Discussing the Tom Ronbinson case with scout, Atticus says: "when you and Jem are grown, maybe you'll look back on this with some compassion and some feelings that I didn't look back on this with some compassion and some feeling that I didn't let you down." Scout, as the narrator, is older as she tells us the story. Look for evidence in the text that suggests how the adult Jean Louise views these events.

I think her view of events are implicit in her narrative. There is always a to of nostalgia when she talks about her father and quotes his wisdom. We can feel her adult voice comming through with a reverence for the ideals that Atticus stood for like the quote you included above.
