Some people might think in the opposite side that George should not killed Lennie because Lennie did not mean to anything. He has done it without knowing how strong of himself. Lennie made many troubles this might be because of his disability, but this is the reason that he deserves to live. He has done many thing that make George get into trouble and It is better if Lennie has to die because of George shoot him not the other. "All the time he coulda had such a good time if it was not for you” (Steinbeck).
That is exactly what George didn’t want for Lennie, so he shot him. George did what he thought was best for Lennie. George didn’t want him in a state hospital because he knew that Lennie would deteriorate in the conditions of a state hospital. Everyone knew about the abuse at asylums, but only the patients and doctors knew about the extent of that abuse. In asylums the patients were not seen as people, they were seen as objects.
Secondly, Would you ever have the guts to shoot your friend? George may have done it with dignity and for the best but i still don’t think that was okay. George should have looked out for Lennie better than just leaving him alone, or at least let lennie go. If i had that problem, i would have talked to my friend and helped them or go away with them. Shooting your “friend” isn’t being a friend.
These are all examples of why there are no real winners in war, no matter who killed who or who had won the most properties. My second topic is that war is just not worth here is why, War is not worth it with all the violence psychical damage taken for example in the story when the IRA sniper took a bullet in the arm and had to self treat himself all of this could have been avoided if there was more communication Second innocent lives are taken for no reason because of dumb violence like the incident that happened earlier in the story when the IRA sniper killed the innocent old lady and the man just because of something small that token out of proposition, all could have been handled a different way lastly the killing of the IRA snipers brother could have been all been avoided if communication was just more clearly and more common sense was use, the ira brother could have still been alive and he would have not been so wounded. These all support that war is not worth it, it is just adding more to the fuel when technically no real winners
“The rifle cracked, Tim Johnson leaped, flopped over, and crumpled on the sidewalk in a brown and white heap”-pg 126. First of all, this quote displays heroism because instead of attempting to run away and hide, Atticus decided to defend the town from the mad dog. Words that show heroism are, “The rifle cracked”, Atticus was willing to shoot a gun even though he hadn’t fired one in years. Additionally, he was courageous enough to prioritize the needs of others instead of his own. If Atticus were to have had missed any of his fired shots, the consequence could’ve been dire.
The officer was not in the right state of mind to deal with the situation. Instead of handling the situation maturely and professionally like an officer is supposed to, he took the situation completely out of proportion. He shot seven times. One shot just barely missing Diamond’s innocent four-year-old in the back. If he felt that Castile was dangerous, he should have asked him to put his hands up or asked him to get out of the car, rather than freaking out and shooting him seven
Heck Tate, the sheriff, was going to kill the dog, however, he was not as accurate as Atticus or “ One shot Finch” (Lee 128). He hesitated to take the weapon, but to protect the neighborhood, he killed the animal. The siblings were surprised due to the fact that Atticus could shoot a shotgun effortlessly. Jem considered this act at a gentlemanly gesture. He was so astonished and confused because his father kept his ‘talent’ hidden.
When Atticus “pushed his glasses to his forehead,” he is attempting to see what he is about to. He knows that killing is wrong, so “he dropped them in the street.” Atticus could not bear to watch as he went against what he believed. Any other person with a shot as good as Atticus’ would have shot the dog without question. But unlike the others, Atticus makes one last attempt as he “blinks hard,” to try to fathom what his actions will do. He wants to give the dog a chance, much like how he wants to give Tom Robinson a chance.
Atticus knew what he was doing but did not care what people thought. Maycomb being both full of conformist and small leading to the judgement of the one person in town that would end up being the non-conformist and don’t care about comments from others; Atticus could have said no,but he did not. Next, would be when Arthur Radley(“Boo”) kills Bob Ewell. “ Bob Ewell’s lyin on the ground under that tree down yonder with a kitchen knife stuck up under his ribs he’s dead Mr. Finch. (Harper 266) This supports the topic because first Bob Ewell made the decision to try to harm Jem and Scout that was his decision, and it was Arthur(“Boo”) Radley’s rash decision to kill Bob Ewell.
We can make the situation end differently, but George being his friend and knowing the conditions that Lennie is in I think it was a way of ending the story. George didn 't want Lennie to suffer .So he decided to just shoot him. They could 've just let him go to jail but he would suffer. He could either die in jail by other inmates, get executed if he resisted. I don 't think George was Lennies true friend because they both didn 't like Curley.
Walter never wanted to kill emilio and Krazy-8 but he did it out of self defense since they pulled guns out on jesse and walter and they had to do something about it. when jesse and walter lock Krazy-8 in the basement they flip a coin to see who kills him and walter does not want to kill the man but he knows if he doesn 't that krazy-8 will probably come back and kill walter and his family so it 's a life or death situation for him so he needed to make a decision but he almost let him go if Krazy-8 wouldn 't have had a knife he probably would have been free to go but since he wanted to try and kill walter he had to end Krazy-8’s life. his moral choices and decisions were a hardship for him so some of his choices were overall evil and he tries to make the right decisions but he does what really has to be done in order to keep him and his
