To Kill a Mockingbird

confused on significance of quotations

I am currently struggling with the quote 'the feeling grew until the the doors of the Radley Place' in Chapter 21 page 210. I am to tell what the significance of this is to the story and it's due February 10, but would like to know ASAP. Could you help?

Everyone waited, breathless, as Atticus aimed at the Tim Johnson. All knew the outcome (the death of the dog), but they waited and watched. Similary, in the courtroom, all wait and watch, breathless, as the jury "aims" at Tom Robinson. All know the outcome; except for Jem, everyone knows that Tom will be convicted (and that means death). In both cases, it's a sad outcome, but people watch anyway.
