Torment:the infliction of torture
I sometimes felt a twinge of remorse, when passing by the old place, at ever having taken part in what must have been sheer torment to Arthur Radley—what reasonable recluse wants children peeping through his shutters, delivering greetings on the end of a fishing- pole, wandering in his collards at night?
When the teacher in Scouts class said she hates that Hitler is persecuting the jews, yet she was racist toward a black man at the trial is hypocrisy. Kind of like every other human being in existence. We are hypocrites as well, but in separate ways. Some like the teacher in the book, others for example might say "Don't curse," to their children or other people when they themselves curse like it's not a problem periodically throughout the day.
Miss gates talks about Hitler's persecution of the Jews and Scout was comparing that with the racism and persecution of the black people in Maycob. He was right in thinking they were the same because the persecution of the blacks in the south was just as bad as the persecution of the Jews in Germany.

Jem shouts at Scout never to talk about the trial again.

Scout goes to Atticus for comfort
