Concealing Who Saved the Kids

TKAM-YLKKNN

Why would it be unfair to let the public know who saved the children's lives? Select the BEST reason suggested by the text.

A

He would be drawn into the public spotlight, which would be against his will, even if the attention was positive.

B

He would be put on trial for murdering Bob Ewell, which would be unpleasant, even though he'd be acquitted because it was self-defense.

C

He would be targeted for harassment by the rest of the Ewells, just as Helen, Judge Taylor, and the Finch family were targeted by Bob after the trial.

D

He would be sent to jail for the rest of his life for murdering Bob Ewell, and his life is enough of a prison already that there would be no point.

E

He would be expected to have an ongoing relationship with the children, which would be undesirable to him given his personality.
