To Kill a Mockingbird

what does atticus say about mobs and men over the breakfast table? What does he mean by the statement, "maybe we need a police force of children."

Just to have the correct answers.

He says the mob of men were simply ignorant. Atticus says it took the simplicity and honesty of a child to appeal to the humanity within them. He thinks that children have a way of diffusing tension and a way of seeing the world without prejudice (until they learn it).
