Atticus knows the pain that has gone on in the Radley family. After catching his kids trying to peek inside the Radley house, Atticus tells them that Boo has a right to his privacy and need not ever come out if he does not want to. Atticus has no illusions about the Radley's; they are simply people who have suffered. Perhaps one of Atticus's most famous quotes is, “You really never understand a person until you consider things from his point of view--until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." Atticus told Scout this in chapter 3 referring to her teacher, but Scout applies it to Boo in the final chapter as she's on his porch.
