‘Cause I want you to stay with me. Trouble with mice is you always kill ‘em.” The relationship between father and son is also implied because George looks after Lennie’s basic survival needs and tries to keep him out of trouble. On the other hand, Lennie provides George with support and love to motivate George as a father. Page 16. “But you ain’t gonn get in no trouble, because if you do, I won’t let you tend the rabbits.” 2.
George was his best friend and Lennie needed him. In Of Mice and Men, George should not have killed Lennie. George knew that Lennie needed him and that he should not have killed him. Lennie was dependent on George because he had always been around him. It was Georges responsibility to take care of Lennie.
Was George justified in killing Lennie my personal opinion is gorge was wrong and it wasn't right for him to kill him or so called euthanasia lennie was his best friend who hes lived with thru thick and thin thru the rough times and the good times and they weren't just friends but one almost completed the other to where they were whole they were to me almost life partners in a weird kind of way Some causes of why George killing Lennie could be considered wright are due to lennie strangling curley's wife he was already going to jail any way therefore he wasn't going to be free anymore anyway also he hurt everything he touched for example the puppy that Carlson gave him he choked it to tight curley's hand he squeezed it so tight it almost killed
I like to know what your interest is (22)." This implies George really cares about Lennie, and other people recognize the trouble he is taking. When Curly slugged Lennie in his face and Lennie doesn't do anything so, George said "Get him Lennie, Don't let him do it." When Lennie took Curly's hand away from his face and looked about for George. Curly had slashed at Lennie's eye and his face was covered with blood.
His memory was so awful, that after they ran out of there, he didn’t remember what he had done. All this does, is prove once again that George made the right decision. Killing Lennie was the kindest thing George could’ve done for him. Curley is always trying to start fights, so when Lennie, a very large man, shows up at the ranch he tried to assert his dominance. Lennie ends up crushing his hand, which makes Curley hate him even more.
C: This is an aha-moment for George as he is realizing what he could do without Lennie. Lennie kept annoying George by taking dead mice and forgetting where they were going. Then when he asked George for ketchup, George grew very frustrated with him. He went on to talk about how he could live so much better without Lennie and how Lennie was always something that was holding George back from the potential he had. This is showing cruelty because during this time, it seems that
George has caught Lennie with something that he should not have had on multiple occasions. For example, there was once a mouse in his pocket and one time, a puppy with him on his bunk (43). George does a good job of protecting Lennie when needed. For example, George knew Curley’s wife was going to cause trouble, so he warned Lennie to not talk to her (32). The accident involving Curley’s wife was Lennie’s fault for not listening to George and behaving as he did.
In jail, there is no freedom and not having freedom is not something an innocent person should suffer. The second reason Tom and Huck should have told the police that Injun Joe killed Mr. Robinson was that Injun Joe should not have been able to run the streets a mad, malevolent murderer. If Joe was capable of killing Mr. Robinson surely he could kill someone else without a second thought. Murderers shouldn’t be able to run free because they feel as if they got away with it, that it’s ok, or that they could do it again and get away with
Already, Robinson did not have a jury of his peers, as guaranteed by the Constitution just like the Scottsboro Boys. Tom knew how bad it would look if he was caught with Mayella, which was why he ran away from the situation with the Ewells, even though he was innocent. He was terrified and knew something bad was coming. The prosecute questioned Tom about these particular actions. “‘Scared of arrest, scared you’d have to face up to what you did?’ ‘No uh, scared I’d hafta face up to what I didn’t do.’ ‘Are you being impudent to me boy?’ ‘No suh, I didn’t go to be.’” (Lee 265).
In many cases kids are victims of abuse and have tried getting help, but are ignored, resulting in death of family members. Teens feel like there is no other option to stop their abusers and their mind in a flurry decides something as bad as murder is the only way to end what is happening to them. The ones who ignored a child calling out for help should be in prison just as well, basically perpetuating this horrible murder scene to
