What did the witches think of him?

All of the “witches” hated him because he didn’t help them he just helped himself by putting people in jail even though they were innocent. He got involved with the witch trials because he wanted or was a sheriff and so he thought that they needed help so he went to the witch trials and blamed everybody. He was a big part for himself for killing the innocent because he didn’t care, but he was never a big help for them because they were losing people that were very important to people. He was very important to himself because the more people he took to jail the more money he would get for his job. Some people might have said that “he was a no good stealing thief”.


Why was the ending of the Salem witch trials like for George Corwin?

George Corwin was a very big help to himself not to the community. He just wanted to kill people for more money and so that he can steal people’s stuff.
