I don't know what you mean by "shirley jackson jug".

At the time, the people didn't see that they were doing something wrong. It was a tradition, and they believed that it would help corn grow. It was like a sacrifice. They didn't hate Tessie, they thought they had to do it. Shirley Jackson wanted to show that even though it seems horrible, people still can get murdered because of a tradition that was held on for a long while
