Well the entire book was a horrible book, and incredibly racist. But Atticus sucked pretty bad on his own too. Not in character. He had a morally upright character (entirely subjective speaking). But the thing is, he kinda let's his kids just run loose around the town. Which would be a normal occurrence for a small town in that time. But the fact that he was defending someone, who was black, and the town didn't like that which they showed in sometimes violent manners, letting your kids run rampant may not be the most responsible thing you could do. Unfortunately, there are people who will use people you care about to make you do something that they want you to. Which is one of the only reasons I can see for calling Mr.Finch a "bad" father.
