The Greasers are heroes!

Ponyboy, Johnny and Dally show bravery

Johnny, Ponyboy and Dally's bravery

Ponyboy Curtis, Johnny Cade and Dallas (Dally) Winston all save little kids from a fire at an abandoned church in Windrixville. Ponyboy, Johnny and Dally are all part of the greaser gang who are rivals with the Socs. Ponyboy has two older siblings, Sodapop and Darry, and his parents died in a car wreck when he was younger. Johnny's parents abuse him and ignore him and he is known as the "pet" of the gang. Dally's parents aren't really there anymore and he does have a prison record.

It all happened when Ponyboy, Dally and Johnny were eating at Dairy Queen and they heard some commotion. They walked out and noticed there was a fire in the church that they had been staying in for the past couple of days because Johnny killed one of the Socs. Dally, Ponyboy and Johnny fond out that there were kids stuck in the fire. Ponyboy thought it was all his fault because they were staying in the church before so he went into the fire to save the kids. Johnny went in with him because he was in the church too and he didn't want his best friend going in there alone. Dally went to help too. They ended up getting all of the kids out of the fire but they were all severely injured. Dally had a pretty badly burned arm, Johnny broke his back, a piece of timber caught him across the back and he was burned badly. Ponyboy was a little burned and passed out. The boys definitely showed an act of bravery and pulling the kids out of the fire.

Since the police now know about how Johnny killed a Soc they plan to do some things. The police interviewed Cherry Valance, the Socs girlfriend, and Randy Adderson, his best friend. They both told the police that Johnny had done it in self-defense. Johnny was being charged with man slaughter and both Pony and Johnny have to appear at Juvenile court.

I do think that Johnny should be charged for manslaughter just because he killed somebody. This does not make Johnny a bad person just because he used self-defense. Johnny should do this if he stays alive from his injuries of the fire.
