I do agree with George killing Lennie because Lennie would die a really harsh, painful, and slow death by the other men that were trying to find him if George didn’t calm him down and shoot him. Of course, it was the biggest plot twist in the whole book and it broke our hearts, but George did if for the best. In conclusion, George did the right thing and actually helped Lennie instead of harming him and others around
I’ll shoot him in the guts. Come on, you guys. This is an even stronger reason why George did the right thing by killing Lennie.

He can 't just let Curley kill Lennie since Curley would make him suffer. There is no clear choice on whether George has to kill Lennie or if they can run away again.
