    I think Mr Jingles would disagree

    Well yeah, Wild Bill made a pretty convincing misbehaved villain. Yes there would be no story without them. Just thank your God, or Tower, or Nothing that they're not real (I recite that before I go to bed each night).

    Well okay, Mr. Jingles was a superb circus mouse, but I still wasn't an act of villainy. I'm sure Percy wasn't going to get arrested for killing him.

    No, but Percy was a bully, and I don't believe that 'forgetting' to wet the sponge was an accident. Underneath his brattiness, Percy was evil, and I could easily see him doing something that would cause him to end up on the Green Mile himself. As far as Wild Bill, he was evil, evil, evil. Have you read the book, or are you commenting based on the movie? There are nuances in the book that are not there in the movie, and some of the important aspects of the story are lost.

    Read the book AND seen the movie. I never take just from the movie.

    And I doubt Percy has the guts to do anything to get him on the Green Mile. He only picked on things/people/animals he knew he could pick on without actually getting in SERIOUS trouble. He didn't do anything to Paul or Brutus, because they were together then him and in more authority.

    However, to Percy, he saw easy targets in a defenseless mouse and a convicted murder who was about to be fried.
    Yes, he was evil, but not a villain. He was a major pain in the rear.

    Hey.
    Mr Jingles "just a mouse"?
    I don't think so.

    I think the reason Percy's character annoyed me so much was the fact that I have had the displeasure of having to work with people like him at different stages of my life. You know the type, people who couldn't stay employed if they didn't have someone in power looking out for them.
