Although Mr. Underwood holds racist vies himself, his editorial can be likened to Atticus's prior words. In his editorial Underwood writes, "it was a sin to kill cripples, be they sitting, standing, or escaping." He writes that Tom's death was tantamount to the senseless slaughter of songbirds by hunters and children. Atticus had also discussed that killing a Mockingbird is a "sin". The bird tries to bring a little relief in a very harsh world. Tom's actions were no different.

Oh, this relates to when Jem finally gets his gun. One of Atticus's rules forbids him to shoot at a Mockingbird.

it related because Atticus is a nice man and mr underwood is a mean guy who basically cares about other things not about black people which show a small amount of sin in the way he is racist pearson.
