When Tom Robinson tried to escape from Jail, was it really a necessity for the prison guards to shoot him 17 times in the back while he tried to climb over the fence? Why did Tom try to escape when he had a fairly good chance of winning his appeal in a higher court? I think that Tom realized he would never get a fair trial in a state as racist as Alabama, and his best chance to get back to his wife and kids was to make a run for it, and flee the state. Still, he should have stopped after the guards fired warning shots at him.
