                      1. He is convinced of victory and so his faith in the justice system and in human nature is shaken when Tom is pronounced guilty.
                        1. Scout says "his shoulders jerked as if each 'guilty' was a separate stab between them"
                      2. Jem's broken arm is the first thing we hear about in the novel.
                        1. This creates suspense- we want to find out how it happened, but are not told until almost at the end.
