To Kill a Mockingbird

What was wrong about defending a black person who was found guilty?

What was wrong about it? Atticus knew what he's doing. He knew that if he defended a person that was found guilty of not doing something, when, it really was Bob, why did he do it? I find this shocking.

Well, defending a black person was wrong, yes, but you're missing the point here, Four. Well, I am not quite sure of it but I'll try.

Atticus made Mayella look bad and Bob Ewell was angry about the case so he attacks the children, and then Boo saved them by killing Bob. Bob Ewell isn't a likely person to attack a lawyers children...right Aslan?
