Atticus explains to Jem that sometimes even the sanctity of the court cannot help the innocent when the population is ignorant,
"There's something in our world that makes men lose their heads. In our courts, when it's a white man's word against a black man's, the white man always wins. They're ugly, but those are the facts of life."
