This statement by Mrs. Kies is trying to describe what the jailing system was like in America around the 17th century. The first line is wondering who the criminal or honest boy that is in handcuffs is. The next line is stating that when the prisoner tells the truth but their story isn't believed they start to get angry and get mad. After that line, the next one describes that the evil person thinks that what they said, their conscience, may have been wrong or stated incorrectly. The last sentence describes how racist and the segregation that was happening in that time period for you could go to jail for the color of your skin, hair or religion.
