He had an uncharacteristically deep hatred for Reverend Marwood, because Marwood sentenced Brian’s sister to death, years before he became judge. He made a vow to get even with John one day, and despite his desire to be a fair judge, he used his newfound power to finally exact his revenge on the vile reverend. Brian was not alone in wanting to give Reverend Marwood what he deserved. In fact, almost the entire town wanted to see him come to a grizzly end the same way he had sent so many to their ends. However, being a reverend, no ordinary citizen could do anything against him without the consequences of death or imprisonment.
Inner Conflict in Gaines' A Lesson Before Dying "They sentence you to death because you were at the wrong place at the wrong time, with no proof that you had anything at all to do with the crime other than being there when it happened. Yet six months later they come and unlock your cage and tell you, We, us, white folks all, have decided it’s time for you to die, because this is the convenient date and time" (158). Ernest J. Gaines shows the internal conflicts going through the mind of Mr. Wiggins in his novel A Lesson Before Dying (1933). Mr. Wiggins is struggling through life and can’t find his way until he is called upon against his own will to help an innocent man, Jefferson. The help is not that of freeing him at all.

He was about to be stripped of life and was unable to freely live his final days. Meursault finally understood why his father had gone to watch an execution.

He created so much distrust and sadness among a whole community as they had lost the well-respected Clutter family. Hickock also was willing to fully allow Smith to be viewed as a cold-blooded killer who had no help in the murders.
