This depends what act you are referring to. In the latter part of act 2, Hale definitely has misgivings about his role. He is watching innocent people put to death. Despite his early enthusiasm for discerning the presence of witchcraft in Salem, Hale soon grows disillusioned with the witchcraft accusations that abound and defends Proctor when he challenges Abigail. Hale does this out of guilt, for he fears that he may have caused the execution of innocent persons.
