10. What do you think Scout meant when she said that to reveal Boo Radley's part in Bob Ewell's death would be "like shooting' a mockingbird"?

Boo is one of the Mockingbird figures in the story (Tom is the other one). The attention and publicity of such a heroic act would destroy a recluse like Boo. He is emotionally delicate, Boo could not handle the storm of publicity.
