Once the Hangman began killing, nobody tried to step up and stop the Hangman except for one person who was killed. In this case, the good men did not attempt to stop the evil. As a consequence for this lack of action, each person was killed because he serves the Hangman best.

The way in which the good served the Hangman was by letting the evil triumph over the town. If a group had attempted to stop the Hangman, he could have possibly been stopped. Because only one person attempted to stop the evil, those who kept quiet were killed for helping the Hangman without realizing it. You should remind yourself that each student and each class is different and that what seems appropriate for one may not be appropriate for all.
