These two incidents are similar in several ways, both large and small. The most important way is that both of these two men can be read as being the mockingbird of the title: they are innocent, and bring beauty into the world through their presence, lacking any malice at all. They are also physically separate from the rest of the community, and, to a lesser extend, both corporally separate.
