I think there may be a factual issue with this example.

"Bittersweet Ending:Tom Robinson is falsely convicted and is shot dead by cops and Atticus' faith in the justice has taken a big hit as a result. But Bob Ewell is killed and his name made a laughingstock and Scout becomes friends with Boo Radley, with the implication that he may be better understood by the community. Not to mention that the sheriff lets Boo off the hook for killing Bob to save the children and without her abusive father around, Mayella will probably be able to move on to a better life."

I won't change it myself since it's been a while and I don't have a copy on hand, but IIRC it was prison guards, not cops.
